Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
I am now 61 years young, mother of 3, and proud grandmother of 11 and 1 beautiful great granddaughter. At this stage of my life my goals are very simple: to be healthy, able to help my children when asked, and be able to enjoy what the Lord has given us.
Get my weight to 154 to be out of the "overweight" category on my BMI.
Reach 10,000 steps daily.
Long term goals:
Participate in a walking challenge.
5/12/2015 - 135 lbs.
11/10/2014 - 61 Years old, semi-retired,and I love the Lord above all else. I have a 6 year old female German Shephard named Annabelle, a 5 year old female mixed lab named Babyface, and a 3 year old female Norwich Terrier named Tuffy. Since my children and grandchildren live several hundred miles away, my "girls" are my children, and they are very spoiled.
I love to cook, any and all kinds of cuisine, and I am known for my food. Anytime I can cook for others, whatever the occasion, I take advantage and cook up a storm. I am able to cook without blowing my nutritional goals (for now anyway, I have not been asked to cook my pies yet, that is when I get into trouble). And I love reading about new cooking techniques and food combinations. I am really into learning how to cook more healthy foods without losing the flavors.

I want to thank you so much for commenting on my recent BLOG that was featured here at Spark People. If in any way I have been able to inspire or motivate you, then I am most pleased. Since reaching my goal weight I have made it a goal to help as many others as I can with their goals to lose weight and get fit.
For me, making new goals (challenges) is what keeps me accountable, maintaining and healthy. It feels awesome!
Many thanks again for your kind words and interest in my BLOG.

The only way to fail is to give up. Whatever comes, whatever happens, keep going.
Fix your eyes on the goal, and persist. Your vision, your commitment, and your actions will take you there.
When you can make great big strides, make them. When you can take only small steps, take them.
See every moment as the opportunity that it is. When the wind is at your back, keep going, and when the wind is blowing against you, keep going.
Make good and effective use of whatever you encounter. Tap into the positive value that is always there.
Know precisely where you wish to go and why. Keep going, and you are there.

"How would your life be different if . . . You were conscious about the food you ate, the people you surround yourself with, and the media you watch, listen to, or read? Let today be the day . . . You pay attention to what you feed your mind your body, and your life. Create a nourishing environment conducive to your growth and well-being today."
