My Alter Ego and doppelgamer from my college years in the 70s...WONDER WOMAN
The ME I see in the mirror will be changing shortly so take a good look now....
*Tested and True
*Tough as Nails
Too committed to turn down a challenge
I am...I am...I am...Shifting my vision from where I've been: "fat female, over fifty" to: " Sexy senior loving life at sixty." I found Spark People by mistake and looked it up to check out the "weird" name. What I found may have just changed my life!
As a nurse practitioner who has carried thirty to forty extra pounds the past 15 years, I have been good at giving health advice; not very good at following it. I am busy, busy, busy but have NEVER practiced any type of exercise regimen. I eat what I want and want what I eat. I see my MD every year and have no significant health issues.
My three months on Spark has opened my eyes to so much more that I can "get out of life" than just the 10 pounds I have already dropped. I have decided to be REALLY HEALTHY. I've raised my children to practice good health and exercise. Now it is time for ME.
1) Initiate that Exercise Regimen I set for a goal three months ago
2) Cleansing Fast two days mid month
3) Track Exercise and Nutrition first week of every month for seven days
4) Stabilize caloric and nutrient intake day to day
5) Make a new Spark friend every month
Anything is possible; no cares considered, all woes are gone with the wind....
1)Exercise on treadmill to outdoor walking to walking 5k by October 2011
2)Stabilize calories to 1200 day
3)Increase water intake to 64 oz. every day!

Yup, what we want our kids to do, we have to do. I sure did get caught in the act. We were having steak from the grill and it started getting a little windy at my friends' place. Soooo ...

When it comes to counting blessings,
There are surely very few
As precious and as meaningful as someone dear as you,
And that’s the special reason
For this loving Christmas prayer…
“God bless you for your thoughtfulness
And keep you in His care.”
Thank you for being a treasured part of my heart!!

I'm taking time to count my Blessings.....
During Thanksgiving I count my Blessings & You
bring such joy & love in my life. I am so grateful
to call you friend. You'll always be in my heart!
I sure do love y'all.
Thanksgiving is a time
To say thank you to those we treasure,
Those people we hold close to our hearts,
Who give us so much pleasure.
Without you my dearest friend,
I cannot comprehend;
You have always been there for me,
May our friendship never end.
