Hello and welcome to my page! If you couldn't guess my name is Cathy. My husband and I are from the Colorado Springs area of Colorado. We sold our home in Colorado and bought 13 acres of forested land on the edge of the Mark Twain National Forest here in southern Missouri. We don't have any children other than our cockatiels that we call our feathered puppies. :-))

August 2017 - We moved back to Colorado Springs!! So happy to be back in my home state and to be near family again.

My husband and I make video games for a living from our home. We work well together and love that we get along so well that we can stand to be with each other 24/7. lol

Life has dealt me plenty of punches starting with my first surgery at the age of 5. At 9 I had a brain tumor removed that damaged my right optic nerve and destroyed my pituitary gland. As a result I'm legally blind in my right eye and have to take medicines for the rest of my life to make my body function normally. I've had multiple surgeries and broken bones over the years since then but I will not let anything stop me from becoming a better me physically and mentally.

I'm eating according the Thyroid Solution Diet and exercising according to the recommendations in the book as well.

Winter 5% Challenge Commitment
Exercise:
Exercise every day with at least one day being an active rest day.

How I am going to accomplish this:
Every other day I will do either a HIIT workout or walking. I will do ST each day as well unless it's an active rest day.

Stress reduction:
Do tai chi, yoga or deep breathing exercises 3 days each week.

    I can't believe Christmas is so near. emoticon
    To make it a special time of year.
    We've got the time to decorate the tree. emoticon
    For everyone to see.

    We'll add green and red lights. emoticon
    That will shine through the nights.
    Add the ornaments, old and new. emoticon
    So full of memories, too.

    From all the branches they'll hang, emoticon
    Reminding us of songs we sang.
    At the top we'll add the star, emoticon
    which will be seen from near & far.

    Underneath the tree will be gifts & toys, emoticon
    For all the girls and boys.
    Yes, we will have time in the next 12 days, emoticon
    for celebrating all the wonder, cheer & joy.
