My Walk to Health

I'm a 59 yr old Grandma that lives in paradise (Florida), loves life and tries to live a healthy lifestyle. I have 2 grown daughters and 4 grandchildren.

My doctor told me if I was to lose 50 pounds I could probably get off of almost all of my medications. So I have been changing my lifestyle to live healthy, eat right and exercise to achieve this goal. I found this site and decided to join and make a page and learn from others doing the same things as myself.

So I have been changing my lifestyle to live healthy, eat right and exercise to achieve this goal. I found this site and decided to join and make a page and learn from others doing the same things as myself.

I was having a problem exercising 5 days a week. I'd start the week off good and by the next week I was slacking off. So to make myself accountable I signed up for my first 5 k! Now I've never been a runner ever. The race is in exactly 8 weeks. The same day I found the local 5k race online, I also found a training program that said "Train for a 5k in 8 weeks"! I thought this was meant to be. So I printed the training program out, signed up for the race and here I am! I am blogging everyday and keeping a journal on my training for the next 8 weeks.

I hope my blogs will help you in your journey as much as reading all about other's journeys here are helping me.

I know I'm a couple days early, but I may not have time to post on the weekend, so...

~~ If only for today: smile a little more, sing a bit off key, laugh loudly and long, dance, skip, jump, play. Eat with your hands, hug every kind soul that crosses your path. Finger-paint, face-paint, body-paint. Do something brave. Squash a fear. Get out of your shell. Wear something sparkly. Be wild, be strong, be silly. For being foolish can make you happy but being happy will never make you a fool. ~~ Michelle

Happy Almost Spring!! This coming Tuesday marks the Spring Equinox and in preparation for the first day of the new season I would like to wish you a brand new start, never-ending moments of poise and balance and a joyful tip over on the scale to the side of light. I wish you a new dawn, an eternal youth and a morning star to wish on. Whatever battles you are fighting, whatever stresses may come your way, may they melt away with the winter and may you be granted a time of new light and a new life where your wildest dreams come true. ~ Michelle

"Celebrating the Spring Equinox: The spring equinox is one of the four great solar festivals of the year. Day and night are equal, poised and balanced, but about to tip over on the side of light. The spring equinox is sacred to dawn, youth, the morning star and the east. The Saxon goddess, Eostre (from whose name we get the direction East and the holiday Easter) is a dawn goddess, like Aurora and Eos. Just as the dawn is the time of new light, so the vernal equinox is the time of new life." - from http://www.schooloftheseasons.com/spring.h

Welcome! If you need a shoulder, a friend or a virtual coffee at some point, drop by and say hello! I've been on SP for just over four months now and am amazed at the absolutely incredible amount of support I've received and thrilled with the results. Now I need to pay it forward ... :)
