Living in the beautiful northwest of California. I love the redwoods!





Me and chard! The lovely challenge of keeping up with our CSA weekly share. Thanks, Farmer Janet!





My beautiful daughter and kohlrabi. Farmer Janet grew them since we are such fans.

Busy 56-year old Mom to get fit

I have been on-agin and off-again with SparkPeople for the last three years. During that time I have been consistent with Vinyasa Yoga about three times a week. Recently, I joined a gym that has lots of yoga classes, cardio equipment, and strength devices. I am working with a trainer to build strength and increase my metabolism - and keep me commited to working out.

In mid-November, I weighed in at 166 pounds. I am 5'3" tall and have about 40-50 lbs to lose to get to a goal of 115-120 lbs. I have a renewed commitment to get more fit and lose the extra weight. I just saw some photos from Thanksgiving and am surprized how heavy I have gotten.

I love to cook and follow a mostly vegetarian diet. Lots of vegetables and whole grains. Seafood is one of my favorite foods - isn't it vegetarian?

“The chief beauty about time is that you cannot waste it in advance.
The next year, the next day, the next hour are lying ready for you, as perfect, as unspoiled, as if you had never wasted or misapplied a single moment in all your life. You can turn over a new leaf every hour if you choose.”
-Arnold Bennett

Stop wasting so much energy hating your body; it makes you weaker.
Everything good in your life begins from the moment you begin accepting, understanding, respecting, and loving your true self.

Thanks Cookingirl for the soup goodie, emoticon emoticon it's the perfect thing! You would laugh if you knew what I was making today for our Bible study that is meeting in our home-I only have to provide some goodies, so I'm making gluten and dairy free chocolate cupcakes, and for the others they can have home made caramel corn! I'm saving for the cupcake, and will nix the c corn!
