Hey, thanks for dropping by my page! To be honest, I haven't been on SparkPeople a whole lot recently. The awards are coming from my fitbit, which I have linked to SparkPeople... apparently it's registering as fitness minutes! I AM using MyFitnessPal daily, tracking food, and am working towards being able to run my first 5K next fall... we're signed up for one called Color Me Rad in Indianapolis. I'm pretty excited, and I have registered around 11 lbs lost so far... hoping to keep it up! My goal is a pound a week until my birthday in July... and then setting a new goal to focus on after that. Also, I graduate from grad school in May... FINALLY. Then I can focus more fully on my fitness goals. :)

How are things going for you?

Wow! Nearly 4 Spark years hardly seems possible! Retirement is OK. It is just taking me a while to find my footing when I have so much free time. Trying not to hang with Don so much and keep my independence going--although it's easy to spend time with someone I love so much. :) But it's also easy to be co-dependent in this type of situation. Oh, me. Everything is a re-learning situation.

I've decided to include more Spark in my focus. I'm grateful to have the time now.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I've missed our comradery--because I backed up a bit. Glad to be here. Glad that you're here, too.

Thanks for the good feedback! I'm just hanging in there. Looks like we'll be spending January and February in Florida. I'm not big on adventures, but I'm willing to go along!

Have a wonderful week.
