Traveling a bumpy road!

So much has happened to me since I started SP April 9th 2010. I've lost weight of course and regained some, I've learned to stop eating when full and I've made some great spark friends. I'm sparking much of the time. Many know about my son's accident (6/17/2010)and the changes that has wrought on my life, my sister Véronique's death (11/7/2012) due to a brain tumor and Vicky's congestive heart failure, diabetes and a host of other problems. I also have been blessed with a new grand-daughter ...

I also have been blessed with a new grand-daughter in May 2013 for a total of 5 grand-daughters and 1 grandson-the first and eldest of the grands..

I try to keep smiling and stay positive-not always easy, but the good Lord helps. I love life from infancy to old age.
I retired May 25th, 2012.
My 5 children and 6 grandchildren are an important part of my life.

With the exception of my cholesterol levels and a mobile blood pressure I am relatively healthy. Both my son's care and my weight contribute the occasionally elevated blood pressure. My cholesterol has been high since I was in my 40's and I am allergic to statin drugs which limits what I can take for the cholesterol problem. (I am in gray in the first picture, and turquoise in the second)

Member Since: 4/9/2010

SparkPoints: 78,849

Fitness Minutes: 77,696

My Goals:
1. track all of my foods, striving to get 5-8 fruits & veggies per day.
2. I will walk no LESS THAN 5,000 steps and work my way past 10,000.
3. to be more positive, and supportive to those around me, especially new widows.



My Program:
To watch what I eat, most importantly cutting back on cholesterol and sodium. Work to change a sedentary life into a more active life, which is difficult for me. Even though retired, I'm knitting and sewing more that makes for a still sedentary life.

Personal Information:
I was born in Bedford, Ohio of a Belgian mom and an American GI. I have lived in Belgium, Ohio, Florida and am currently in Georgia. I am widowed and have five grown children, one of whom had a traumatic brain injury June 2010 and for whom I am the court appointed Custodial Guardian.

Other Information:
I like to knit, sew-when I have time and play with my grandchildren.
I'd love to be able to travel again, to go back to Belgium and Austria, to see Ireland, Scotland, Switzerland and Italy.

I haven't actually had to buy new pants but the dryer had made them snugger at the waist and hips..LOL...I'm actually glad that I had logged the measurements on SP since looking back at those from way back when showed me that I can't blame the dryer and yes, I haven't gained That much weight really but it's settling like a bad bag of cement! LOL That must mean that some of the weight previously was muscle and I would much rather have muscle pounds than what's straining the waistband of my jeans! sigh....Hey, no problem, we know what to do don't we?!!

I have too many ideas left over to decide on #15 yet -- kayak, cross country skiing, a bike goal, yoga, some class that will be offered this year or maybe something someone else has an idea I like. I have loads of days ahead to decide.

I hope you enjoy you first (and all the rest) day of 2015. We went out last night but John was too tired to stay out past 9:00 so we came home early. Now, I have to get my meditation done and then outside for a walk. We're expecting 20s today -- that's like a heat wave after the last couple of days.

Take care!!

GINIE, it is a really high note. We are babysitting with DIL and our granddaughter and two boys will stay the night. One is autistic but he is doing well. Our son is at work and I am sparking. DH has a new recliner I picked it up for him and it is the same color as his old one was so we will give the old one to our son or to a friend who needs a better chair at her cottage

,((((((((( HUGS))))))) AND MUCH LOVE.

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU AND TO ERIK, emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
