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!

Hi Judy,

Thank you so much for your kind words of compassion regarding my mom's fall and hip surgery. After a week in the hospital, she is settling in for rehab in a skilled nursing home. I was there to observe her PT evaluation this afternoon and was kind of surprised at how strong and determined she is. This clearly won't be a life-changing event for mom - just a bump in the road, thankfully.

Anyway, I am grateful for your post and want to wish you a very Happy New Year and great success in getting back into your "normal range!"

BTW - After 14 years working in DC, I just moved this past summer from northern Virginia back to my home in Oregon. It feels like a world away out here!

Cheers!
♥♥Lila

I love snowshoeing. I first tried it last winter (it was on my 14 in 2014 list). I rented snowshoes for a weekend and really enjoyed myself so I bought a pair. I highly recommend it. Now, as for the snow.......

Thanks for stopping by my blog. What an interesting question you asked -- if I had a favorite of my 14 accomplishments. I decided I don't but I do have a least favorite. It was the audio book. I listed to Sue Grafton's "D" book and as I've read subsequent books in that series, I still hear that voice which I didn't find especially pleasurable. I should have listened to a book that wasn't part of a series. Still glad I did it though.

Have a happy and healthy 2015!
