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 V�ronique's death (11/7/2012) due to a brain tumor and Vicky's congestive heart failure, diabetes and a host of other problems.

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: 86,410

Fitness Minutes: 86,827

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 like that WooHoo-thank God generation thing. The kids weren't here long enough for the thank God though. ;-)

Oui, les arbustes à fleurs jaunes s'appellent des forsythia ici aussi. Moi je les aime bien parce qu'ils sont un des tout premiers signes du printemps en région parisienne. emoticon

Did you know you can count your painting as exercise? Last fall when I was up & down on the ladder and stretching to reach places while painting, I thought this has to count as exercise. I typed it in search and sure enough it is on the list.
Hope you have a great week. (with no one sick)

You didn't know it, but yesterday while I was cutting off the dead stuff on the plants out in the mailbox flowerbed, you were right there with me! LOL I kept imagining how you already have to have some blooms to enjoy while I was enjoying cleaning up the last years remains. As much as I looked and looked, I could only find a couple of tiny shoots pushing up which I imagine are snowdrops, no sign of daffodils or tulips yet. sigh...I'll keep looking LOL
