Livin' the good life!

I came to SparkPeople to turn things around in my life. As I get closer to retirement, I've vowed that a rocking chair is not in my future! And it's working - after a year, I've shed the pounds, and have a much healthier outlook on life. Doesn't get much better than that!

Personal Information:
I'm a 62 year old biologist, currently living in the beautiful Appalachian mountains of SW VA. I became a biologist because I have a deep appreciation and concern for all of the beautiful creatures with whom we share our planet, but especially birds. I enjoy getting outside, hiking, bird watching, and hand crafts. Luckily for me, I live in the perfect spot to indulge in all of the above. I'm also very interested in nutrition and the local foods movement. I guess you could say that I have a long history of tree-hugging!

Other Information:

I laughed out loud at your explanation of Tony's behavior. He is a character, that's for sure and he has me well trained. He knows exactly what he needs to do so I'll put him outside. I wonder how'll bad he'll want to be out in January.

I forgot to tell you I also pass a Fresh Market on the way home from work. Do you have those? I'm stopping in shortly to pick up a blueberry muffin because you made me want one. (just kidding...I need no help to get in trouble )

Have a great night!

Funny how food and frustration go hand in hand. We just have to keep picking ourselves back up and trying our best. Have a better day!

I'm sorry...I agree with you - It IS PURE greed!
If it helps any for you to know . . . all I do is get in trouble at these places.

Lol, Judy - I just saw your comment from a couple of days ago, I think - I don't want to rub it in...but not only is there a Trader Joe's and Whole Foods, both within 30 mins from me . . . but they're building another Whole Foods that will be right on my way home from work...5 minutes from the job and 15 mins from home. Sorry!
Wish I could send you a care package...
