My sweet, sweet hubby...
ATRANSFORMATION is a SparkPeople Motivator!
July 12, 2013. The REAL, the one and only BIG start over. The day I found my hubby submerged in the deep end of our pool....after he'd apparently tripped and hit his head on the cement as he fell in.
I thought my life changed on January 26, 2013, five and a half months earlier when I lost my mom...but little did I know.
I am now trying now to find out who I am without him. The REAL transformation has begun.
Who said it doesn't matter how many times you fall, but how many times you get up? Well, I am up again....

How many wake up calls does it take? I have been SO blessed with good genes and daily miracles, but I recognize my time on this wonderful planet is not forever. I want to get to a normal body weight before it is too late, so I can extend the quality of my wonderful life.
Mindfulness in all things.
Live in a constant state of gratitude.
Laugh until my belly hurts.
Stand right back up if I fall.
I am what I am.
Fourth generation Californian, old hippie, who despite her protests, has grown become a combination of both of her parents.
I love theater, "fringe" music (opera, trad jazz, folk, Hawaiian falsetto, etc.), foriegn films and "funky" art. I paint, travel, laugh, and talk too much.
I think life is an spiritual journey and realize, even at my age, I have only just begun, and am barely scratching the surface of awareness.
I never read as much as I would like to, but am in a group that forces me to read at least one book a month...
In 2013 I lost both my mom and my husband... But am blessed to still have my dad, my son, my friends, and most of all my two precious grandbabies.,
