Ready to take on 2017!

This wasn't that long ago. I can get back to this and I will!

Hopping on Mama's bike will be a regular part of my visits, this year.

2017 and I am looking to shape up and take off 20 pounds by my birthday, November 18, when I will be 60.

The 16 pounds that came off in 2016, have helped a bit, but oh, that right hip is giving me fits!

Sitting more with a combination of, additional computer work to add to my landscaping duties, being a part time caregiver for my sweet 92 year old Mama and still not back to where my activity level was, before grief took over and grounded me, when my oldest son, passed away, May 18 2014.


Well, I know what the problem is and knowing is half the battle, so GI Joe says.On to a plan, written with a date and off I go with my spark buddies, down the spark trail to better, health.
