JOYINKY-73, having fun being me!

My focus today is on health and wellness, family, friends and spiritual growth. I've chosen to have my page reflect my life today; pictures from 10-13 years ago are quite different and are scattered through my gallery. Life is good!

Interests: I have returned to yoga classes in addition to my home practice but my main activity is still with my walking with my dog "Sugar"! She's from a rescue and has flourished since I adopted her. She's worth her weight in gold because she makes me laugh! She's also a great motivator to get out for a one to three mile walk every day. She has been a real gift to me and my health.
October 2010, we adopted Xena as a kitten; she's livened up our household considerably and keeps tabs on my indoor "spark" walks! By 2011 walking has become a primary fitness activity for me; as I entered 2012 hooping had become a close second. 2013 has been a year of major yard changes and gardening activity! 2014 a lot of energy was put into fixing up my house and adding more gardens.
Time with my family and friends and regular gym workouts in the winter months are my other primary outside activities. Maintaining my home and yard and gardening keep me busy too. Yard and gardening spring through the fall sometimes takes the place of other fitness activities. Reading, sewing and crafts when I have time; keeping busy never a problem! Finding more time sometimes is.
I just keep growing and changing in healthy ways; life is good!

Hi, Joy! Thanks for checking in on me. I haven't been on SparkPeople lately, but I'm still alive. Ran into a rough patch in life, and while I'm still in a tough spot (from the world's perspective), I'm keeping my eyes on God because I know He has a plan to prosper me and give me hope and a future. I haven't been hooping much, but I'm feeling the call to get back to it. :)

Thank-you for the invite to the hoop group. I'm a rank beginner and I feel the hoop I bought is too heavy, though the people at the hoop shop recommended to get it. Consequently I haven't been using it. I did pull it out the other day and gave it a shot and it was fun. At least it did not give me big bruises on my waist like the first few times I tried to do it. I know practice makes perfect. Mainly I just don't much know what to do with it and can't even get it to stay up very long. Sigh. Gotta try, right? Need to get a move on getting more exercise. It's been in the 90's for so long that I've seemed to have stopped doing anything. Time to get motivated so thanks for the push!And thanks for the color vote on my house. emoticon
