Hello my name is Ruth I live in the Great Northwest. I believe staying active is good for the soul.
Exercise alone won't do it so I joined SP to see if I can get a handle on nutrition and make it a lifestyle along with fitness.

Personal Information:
I live in SW Washington a beautiful State. It rains a lot but when we have a nice day and the sun is shining you realize that it wouldn't be so pretty and green if it didn't rain a lot and it makes it OK. I love the great outdoors and any activity that gets me out there. I love to camp and hike in the summer. In the winter months I love to ski, snowshoe and the beach. The thing that I love the most is riding my bike.

Other Information:
Nothing changes if nothing changes.

Valentine Smile

On Valentine's Day we think of those
Who make our lives worthwhile,
Those gracious, friendly people who
We think of with a smile.
I am fortunate to know you,
That's why I want to say,
To a rare and special person:
Happy Valentine's Day!

Thanks for getting back to me. I am from Utah and have biked in most of the Utah National Parks. Did you get in any biking when you were in Utah?

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, and confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow. --Melody Beattie

I wish my entire fellow Sparkers a Happy and Healthy Thanksgiving. I am so thankful for each and every one of you. I am thankful to have you as part of my extended family as we say on our team. You have helped make me the person I am today. I am getting healthier and stronger everyday with your constant support and motivation.

My advice for the Holiday, choose your battles carefully. Tread carefully here my friends. The consequence of your choices will all be on you. You have worked too hard and you look too good to blow it now. You joined SparkPeople to overcome these urges or learn how to plan for them so you can indulge in a comfort food here or there. Donít forget all of the hard work you have put in and all you have learned. You have come so far! Learn how to celebrate the day without the emphasis on food. If you should indulge in that dessert please make sure that you and your family, we want them healthy too, take a long walk after dinner to digest and burn off some of the calories from dinner. Hitting the couch after a big Thanksgiving meal is now a thing of the past. Yup, no more.

Happy Thanksgiving! If you are driving, travel safely!
