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 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

Hello -

I track yard work as gardening as it is the closest I can find. Today I sprayed some of the weeds growing where they shouldn't be and I pulled others up from around the shrubs. Tomorrow will be trimming a few bushes. We are doing general yard clean up that needs to be done routinely in Florida - everything grows so fast.

Your comment was like a breath of fresh air this morning - just what I needed. We are doing pretty well. I am not a telephone person and I am spending hours on the phone calling people about my aunt's passing, closing out accounts, the attorney, planning the service, getting movers to take her stuff out of the ALF, etc. I did not realize how hard this past year was with her until it stopped. Thanks for just being there for me!

Hi - thanks for the hugs. I needed them today - my aunt passed away this morning. We are so happy for her even though we will miss her greatly!
