Artypants

I am an art teacher, close to retirement. I want to take control of my health so I can enjoy my latter years to the fullest. I have put myself to the side for way too long.

Favorite Quote:
DIRECTION - NOT INTENTION - DETERMINES DESTINATION.

I can have lots of good intentions, but if I don't take time to actually follow a direction, those intentions will get me nowhere.
Sparkpeople, thank you for helping me develop my DIRECTION!

Thanks for the comments on my past blog, the goodie and the friend add.
That had to be one of the most hilarious things I have ever read about the trials of trying on bathing suits. (I still do not own a Speedo and I am still not going to post any pictures of my suited body!!)
Take care and enjoy the summer!
