I am a native of Chicago who has lived in Southern New Jersey for many years...so many that I almost feel like a native, although I grew up in the Midwest.

I am now retired after three careers as newspaper reporter, English teacher and owner of a small graphic arts/writing business. I am now pretty much relegated to home in Millville (albeit a lovely one, in the woods) taking care of a husband who is 13 years my senior and who is now afflicted with Alzheimer's. I do have a live-in caretaker, but still, I am the one he leans on. Having the caretaker here allows me to get out of the house and go to exercise classes, appointments, etc., because I am afraid to leave him alone.

I enjoy checking in with Spark friends and appreciate their support. Just trying to hang on and make life as meaningful as I can, given its staggering limitations.


Member Since: 2/13/2011

Fitness Minutes: 36,480

My Goals:
To maintain my weight and continue a healthy lifestyle that includes daily exercise, the fountain of youth! Also have been following a modified vegetarian diet for many years (no meat or poultry) in recognition of my compassion for all animals.


My Program:
� Limiting carbs and portions
� Striving for exercise 5 days a week: aerobics, walking/running, weight training, spinning.



Personal Information:
I grew up in Chicago, moved to Pittsburgh as a senior in high school and came to South Jersey after graduating from Penn State's School of Journalism. Have been here ever since!

As you might tell from some of my photos, I am an animal lover and presently have two dogs and one cat. Lost my other cat last summer due to a mysterious ailment but happy to still have Callie, the calico.


Other Information:
I try to stay busy and focused and keep a positive outlook on everything. Sometimes it's difficult, but usually I succeed.

    Thanks Carol I have X-rayed others many times.
    I thought they would not be this PAIN. I walked a lot last week I was walking with my walking friends and we just chat and never thinking about our knees. They are older than I and they do complain sometimes. I was walking alone and one came back from Maine so we had a catch up time. (((((HUGS))) and Thank you Carol. emoticon emoticon I appreciate the input for sure.

    Carol I have no word program on my computer. I tried a thing called one note and it is way too complicated. Now I found notebook but it too just blows away if I try to cut and paste. I am having my son to work on the mouse settings. He thinks it might help. Pat in Maine.
