Finally Living

My body is a temple of the Holy Spirit... it's time to Finally Live like it!

A number of things bring me to this point in my life:

* quit smoking on Thanksgiving of 2011. (My doctor asks if I'm still a former smoker, and I laugh and say that I've "been there done that" and it was stupid so I'm not going back!)

* Dad had a stroke in May 2012. It was terrifying watching as he struggled for words and for basic muscle function.

* My blood ...

* My blood pressure was deadly. 188/110 alarmed me to the fact that I would have a stroke, too.

* Asking for a seatbelt extender on the airplane is SO humiliating! I am committed to being able to fly to Belarus this summer without having to ask for one.

So here I am, ready to LIVE and not die. I want to be useful to God, not limited physically because of my weight or my health.

Thanks so much for your comment. It really means a lot to me to know that my Tiger buddies are there for me. I just don't have the time right now to devote to the challenge and it's not fair for me to bring you all down. I am trying to strengthen my relationship with the Lord and that is one of the issues in my life right now. DH hasn't been going to church and we are having other issues. So prayers would be welcome. Thanks again for your support. Hopefully I will be back!

Things got so out of control for me during the switch from one group to the other and I had to make some changes. I am still working on my health and have recently joined beach body. I will never give up on my journey :) I miss you guys so much! This is the first time I have been on sparks since leaving the tigers. I am slowly getting my life on track with my business. Still so much to do but so worth it! I hope you are well and enjoying your journey!
