Mindful living

I've been retired for three and a half 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! 2014 is the year that I succeed in getting where I want to be!!!!!

Thanks for the nuts! I figure at my age I can be as nutty as I want to be. All is going well here but definitely getting too hot! We have a 2 week deadline to be out of here but are really pushing the envelope to make it so will probably be more like 3 weeks. The good thing is we won't have to keep coming back to check up on my aunt once we do go. We're trusting all else will be OK and we can have some time for US!

Looks dainty enough for me.. LOL Thank you so much for the bloglove on my Itty Bitty Steps post. I'm flattered that this touched you. I've had 2 days of eating with tiny bites and so far it's been pretty easy - but then - I have all these people cheering me on. I really feel their support and now, when it could be getting hard to stay enthusiastic, I can remember you and buoy up my efforts. so - emoticon too!

Thanks for the advice! I can't do much travel-wise because we fly 90% of the time. Can't ask the pilot to land, so I can go for a walk. lol
