By learning to eat healthier, hopefully I will be healthier, and reap some of the rewards by accomplishing that. I love walking and biking. I also enjoy the outdoors, volunteering, being with family and friends, reading, doing puzzles. I am just learning to enjoy these things again after a long period of doing none of these due to health, and circumstances in my life. I am hoping to be able to start "living" again, and feel I am off to a good start by joining Sparkpeople, for I feel a new "spark" in my life that has not been there for a very long time.

Member Since: 5/3/2013

Fitness Minutes: 91,321

My Goals:
Since I've joined SP, I have been able to accomplish some of these goals that I have listed..I've lost 7 lbs., and am maintaining. I am eating so much healthier, eating some foods that I never thought I ever would. My exercise minutes has gone up, and I am really feeling so much healthier. (These were my goals when I joined SP.... to lose 7 lbs., learn healthier eating, build walking to 10,000 steps a day, and overall, take better care of myself, as I have learned, that no one can do it for me!!


My Program:
Walking everyday, (slowly increasing), logging into SP everyday, eating required amounts daily, daily readings, rewarding myself if I do a "good" job, organize something in my life, whether big or small, personal, or otherwise.



Personal Information:
My name is Barb. I am 64, divorced, and have no children. I am, however, a foster grandma to 125 fifth graders. This is my fourth year, & I have found it to be one of the best things to happen to me in a long, long time. I cannot tell you how much those kids have done for me. Compared to a few years ago, my life has turned around completely-all for the best. Meeting & becoming friends here on SP has also made a HUGE difference in my life...I never thought it was possible to have so many caring, supportive friends. Some have become like "sisters" to me..


Other Information:
I am from East Grand Forks, MN. Even though it can be "bitterly" cold in the winter, I love living here and enjoy all 4 seasons!
I love to go biking, enjoy walking, working out, being outdoors, flowers, reading, spending time with friends, volunteering, going to rummage sales & thrift stores, and I love football, and hockey, and am an avid fan of MN VIKINGS & MN WILD!!
I also love to read Mysteries (James Patterson, Patricia Cornwell, John Sanford just to name a few)

    If you can define success not by how much money you make, but rather how free are you to choose your life- then you will be relaxed, connected, energetic, open and free. Julie Daniluk

    Hi Barbiee!

    Thank you for stopping by with he poem "For attractive lips, speak words of kindness." ...it is definitely one of my favorites...so I love seeing it!!!

    Wow...it's written by Sam Levenson? I'm not sure who he is...but I always thought this poem was by Audrey Hepburn... Her name and this quote is usually linked together.. I wonder why? Do you know why?

    Anyhoo... hope you are enjoying the nice long Memorial Weekend!

    I sure am!

    Hugs,
    Risa
