Time to update. Well, I've managed to gain weight in the past year, instead of lose it. Time to kick it in gear and do something about this menopausal middle. I'm 55, mom to two adults and two dogs. Nana to two grandchildren and 2 of which I get custody of every now and again for a large part of the year. His momma misses him so much when she has to leave. I've been married for 36 years. Been a nurse for 20 years. Amazing how time flies.

P-ersevere through the challenges
O-vercome the obstacles
W-alk my butt off (literally)
E-nergize my soul
R-elieve the stresses
F-ace the day with a positive attitude
U-tilize my team members
L-isten to my body

P-rioritize my life
I-nvest my time wisely
N-ever say “I can’t”
K-now when to say “No”

N-ever give up
I- am worth it
N-ever make excuses
J-ust do it
A-ttitude is everything
S-pread the *SPARK*
