A lifetime journey for personal and physical health.

I am a mom of 3 (2 teens, one 24 yr old), wife of one (he really is my lifetime love), and I am thrilled to have a large extended family. In our house there are 4 dogs, 1 cat, and a bird - a menagerie of volume and fur. LOL I would not have it any other way.

I am a full-time professor of psychology, and I am a clinical therapist and I am full-time busy! I also have a chronic pain condition - but I refuse to allow it to define who I am. I write that definition...daily.

I always thought that there was not enough time to exercise in this crazy busy life. Somewhere along the way, with help from my Spark Friends, I fell in love with running. I have learned that there is not enough time NOT to exercise. I must make my personal and physical health a priority and you know what they say...ask a busy person. So my busy life will include me and now it does!

    Hi Cindy! I'm here! I'm going to try to make an effort to Spark too :) !! I'm going to start tracking my water intake here. That used to work really well for me. Plus I love writing blogs.

    I hope you have a fabulous Monday! We're in a blizzard here...I wonder is this weather going to be traveling your way later in the week?! I hope not!

    Happy Running!! emoticon emoticon emoticon You are doing so GREAT! I think...I *hope* I'll be able to walk on the treadmill by this Friday! Then, I'll be smiling like YOU! emoticon

    Thank you again so much Cindy for your wise and kindest words. I've needed them! The dryer guy is here...so YaY I'll be able to dry our towels via a dryer vs hanging them around our house...! I usually end up hanging a lot of clothes as to save on wear and tear...esp with my growing kids these past years. But a rough towel that air dried on a railing...just out of the bath is NOT good! Hubby is home for awhile...going to the office this afternoon and then tomorrow he is taking the entire day off and we're planning on taking the dogs..Baby and my Dad's dog - Rinty to the lake...and then the doggie car wash dealy! LOL makes me laugh....the doggie wash is connected to the car wash and...it's perfect for big dogs. I'll have to take pix...

    You are such a wonderful friend. Congratulations again on your degree! WOW!!!!

    Hugs to you,
