Putting on my own oxygen mask first!

You know how the flight attendants always tell passengers that those traveling with small children or someone acting like a small child (Thx, SWA) should take care of themselves first, THEN the other one? It's that time of life for me, after years of self-induced oxygen deprivation.

I'm a 49 year old homemaker, married 26.5 years with 2 college age kids. I'm also an aspiring librarian, avid reader, quilter, dog-walker.

Been using food as a coping mechanism a bit too much lately, and blaming our chronically soggy weather here in the beautiful NW as an excuse for slacking on the walking. I have a beautiful, new, high-end rowing machine just sitting there. I am delighted to have found SparkPeople.

ha, a little rain never hurt anyone, did it?
one of my fav authors, Covert Bailey is from Seattle I think,
he said he had to walk and jog in the rain all the time

but, actually i just joined a gym, which is nice since its been chilly
and will be nice this summer in the HOT HUMID kansas weather!

have a good day/ week

That's interesting about the kale stinking to high heaven. I had no idea. It just looked so pretty blooming at the nursery.
And welcome to SP! Now I want to know how that interview turned out? You know, inquiring minds want to know, and all that. Looks like you are doing great with your weight loss - wtg!

Welcome CLAUDIANNE!
Hope you enjoy your journey here on SP! Here are a few things I like about SP:
1. Under Healthy Lifestyle/Fitness/workout videos
Short workouts for free on your computer (I like it for when I can't get to the gym or to sneak in 10 minutes of exercise) There is even a desk workout.

2. Under Healthy Lifestyle/SparkRecipes.com will take you to a recipe site. You can plug your own in also with the recipe calculator. Or look for a recipe by calories too.

Hi Claudianne!
Welcome. I just read about you and we have alot in common! I am new here (2 weeks) I am 50, married 30 years, have 2 grown kids, like to quilt (just starting), have a dog and I am an emotional eater also and want to lose weight and get healthier. There are some quilting teams here when you get time to check everything out. (overwhelming at the beginning I know!)
I hope you like it here and add me as a friend if you want to! no pressure! emoticon
