FUTUREHOPE49 is a SparkPeople Motivator!
I am back at last. Its October 2013
Its an eventful year so far.
At the beginning of the year, I had put on 12lbs. Put on more since that.
But my bust size has remained the same and my hip size.
Waist went up though! Yuk!
Now its Autumn and I am beginning to lose again at last.
Been very busy, gardening, GD minding and my son came to stay.
My son has gone back to UNI. My GD has started school.
Busy knitting again and exercising, but not as much as I was.
Looking forward to being with my friends again.
I need to lose weight .
I need to keep exercising to keep my blood sugar good!
Return to what I was doing when I first joined Spark People. ie: Exercise early in the day.
Do Strength training, aerobics and yoga and walk every day
I have reduced my cholesterol and have a good ratio. Continue to maintain this.
My blood pressure is up!
I must get my heart rate up every day and keep my salt low. I do not need any more stress this year LOL! LOL!
I will keep exercising, strength training, weight lifting, walking, hiking and gardening.
I will strive to track my nutrition & exercise every day
I am doing more things for me this year, art, craft & bobbin lace.
Get 8 hours sleep a night
Return after a long spark holiday.
Note: I did not close my page as I wanted to come back.
I have joined the Winter 5% challenge and hope to lose 7lb which is 5% of my present weight.
I am sticking with the Mediterranean diet, but emphasizing more vegetarian food. I eat wholemeal wherever possible. Rape seed oil does not agree with me and its in just about everything that is ready made even Pesto! So I need to make more of my own food and bread with EVOO
I exercise every day, yoga, walk/run, aerobics, dancing with Strength training at least 3 times a week. Weight training, Ball exercises , Hula hoop, Kettlebell, 3lb Medicine ball with DH.
Use the Free Gym.
Hike at least once a week.
Gardening, my passion! Grow more vegetables and fruit!
Maintain the house and decorate. I am into DIY!
I joined the 5% winter challenge team.

I am retired. I used to be a machine knitting tutor. I live with my husband and we have been married 34 years.
We have 3 grown up children and 1 grandchild.

So happy to have you as a friend! You truly are special to me!!
Today is MONDAY, a day that I find every important to me. How I spend my Monday has an impact on how the rest of my week goes. You see, on Monday, for me, I so very much need to focus on my spiritual and mental health. It is imperative for me to find the right goals for week through what positive mental food I fill my mind with before I start the day. If I do not do this, than I am scattered and can procrastinate, as well as have other people control my day or week.
My desire for you is to have a great week doing things you enjoy as well as getting those things that need to be done, done.

Today is Sunday, a day of rest, relaxation and time to refuel for the week. Yet, many people are stressed out. According to our life instruction manual, the Bible, we need to rest today. I am hoping that you are doing just that.
We have a full week ahead of us. If we are rested it will be a much easier week. Besides that, we will make better decisions, have more patience and most of all, enjoy our week a lot more.
If your not resting, please take some time to so. It is a way to take care of yourself, as well as showing others that you see yourself as someone of value and worth.
Have a wonderful week. Enjoy your time of resting and give yourself lots of TLC today because you are so worth it.
a day to rest & enjoy your day!!
