I am a healthy 68 yr. old woman who keeps trying to improve herself and finding sparkpeople.com has been a Godsend. I live in Northern Canada by a wonderful lake which I can see as soon as I step out the door or anywhere I walk in town. Used to always spend half the yr. in Baja but DH has had a lot of health problems so I insist we stay home till he is much better. I love to read and serve my Creator. My husband is a second marriage and he is a good father to the 7 children and 10 grandchildren ...
I am a healthy 68 yr. old woman who keeps trying to improve herself and finding sparkpeople.com has been a Godsend. I live in Northern Canada by a wonderful lake which I can see as soon as I step out the door or anywhere I walk in town. Used to always spend half the yr. in Baja but DH has had a lot of health problems so I insist we stay home till he is much better. I love to read and serve my Creator. My husband is a second marriage and he is a good father to the 7 children and 10 grandchildren we have. I do well getting exercise and love healthy food. Where I fall down is on sweets but this site has made me more mindful of what I eat.
I would like to get control over what I do in my life. I want to have the time to create a healthy lifestyle no matter where I am, at home, visiting or enjoying a few hrs. of social time with or without friends.
I will schedule a portion of my time to planning my food and exercise, doing the exercise and preparing the food while leaving enough time for optional things. This will take a lot of pre preparing while in Canada as we live far from the grocery store.
My name is Gina and I live in northern Canada . I am married to Charlie and have 2 dogs Chica (poodle cross) and Otto, a Rottweiler cross. I did turn 68 this yr. and have 7 children and 10 grandchildren. I am in a BLC and am leading the pack. If I win it means about $200.
My favorite books are A Tale of Two Cities and The trilogy Lord of the Rings. Mostly I love my Faith and will do anything to further it. Being a Bahai is the best thing to ever happen to me and I have such great expectations of humanity. While all the old guard is slowly disintegrating a new world is rising and it will be so much better. To me Spark is part of the new system which is all about truth and reality.
And hello to a fellow Canadian!! I love BC! So lovely there!
My hubby is scheduled to get his kidney on Oct 29 and I'll be giving one on the 30th. Just not to him ðŸ˜Š. We are part of a paired donor exchange thru Canadian blood services. I've added you as a friend - thanks again!!
I said Jennifer when I meant Jessica. Good for you that you are taking a proactive stance to deal with your fibromyalgia. I will try to be there for you as well when you need a word or two of encouragement.
Thank you for the wonderful comment on my page, I loved it. I have so may health issues including Fibromyalga. However, all the doctors say that all my problems would be less severe if I lost weight including my skin condition and sleep apnea. So I started my weight loss journey in August and have lost 8 pounds so far, 3 of them with sparkpeople, so here we go. Congratulations on your weight loss journey so far I found your page very supportive and a great motivation, thank you for being my friend. If you ever need someone to talk to I am always here for support. I also walk my dog for exercise and enjoy Nicole's workout videos. Not sure if I seen Jennifer yet, but I do also like Jessica's home workout videos. Anyway, hope you have an amazing journey.
