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 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: 63,705

Fitness Minutes: 53,845

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.

One moment at a time I guess. Good luck with everything today. I am curious about Life Line.

I'm off soon to the State Spelling Bee. Should be fun and the weather is great!

Me too (tracking food) because I have been very lax this month.

Ginie, thank you for adding me as a friend! I've added you, too.

So glad that the pinwheel brought such happy memories.

Have a great weekend!
Susan

Thanks for wishing John well. This was a gait analysis to find out if something could be done to help John be safer when walking. He passed the test though the PT did suggest he consider a walker when he is fatigued and John will start therapy to build strength in his right leg.

I have the girls here tonight -- the young lady who comes here so she can do gymnastics and her sister. Yesterday as their mom was coming to pick them up after school, she hit a patch of ice and rolled her car. She's okay, thankfully.

I plan to go see my folks today when the roads improve.

Tomorrow I'm going to Madison with a friend who is going to see a student in the state spelling bee. She wants company and we'll enjoy a lunch and some shopping.

Have a happy and healthy day!! Take good care of you!

The hat was on the tree - kind of camouflage!
