Mindful living

I've been retired for almost 4 years and am using this time to develop a new life style in the areas of nutrition and exercise.

I love to travel. I lived in the Philippines for 2 years and Spain for 2 years, and have traveled through most of the US and much of Europe. I've been very lucky that I have been able to do what I love. I'm going to have to substitute teach more often to earn enough to do more traveling. Hmmmm, sounds like work to me!!! lol

Joining SP has helped motivate me and keeps me on track.

Long term I need to lose 100 lbs., but I'm focusing on the short term first! 2015 is the year that I succeed in getting where I want to be!!!!!

emoticon Climbing that gate WAS an adventure, I tell you! I am SO afraid of heights that I desperately looked for another solution first, but I could see that either I climbed or I had to go back all the way to my car... So it pushed me and I succeeded! I was very proud!

Thank you as always for all your kind encouragements! I hope your week started beautifully!

Thanks for the spa visit. It is much appreciated today. We had a VERY successful yard sale and are happy not to bring all that stuff back in the house! It was worth all the work even though it is hot and humid so when we closed up I stood in a cool shower until I felt human again!

So glad to hear you had a good night's sleep, too. And even better your renovations are almost finished!
