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: 105,672

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)

    emoticon CHART YOUR COURSE emoticon

    In your quest to be more active, lose weight and/or eat a healthy diet, you need to chart your course. Having a plan is the way to go. The old adage “fail to plan and plan to fail” holds true. In order to reach your goal, you need to have a specific strategy. Don’t just say “I will exercise more”, instead say “I will walk for at least 30 minutes 7 days a week”, and then do it. Don’t say “I will eat more fruit and vegetables”, instead set the goal of having at least 1 – 2 vegetables or fruit at each meal. Write your goals down post your outline where you can see it. Chart your course and you WILL reach your destination.
