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 10-16 years ago are quite different and are scattered through my gallery. Life is good!
Interests: I enjoy home yoga 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. Alas, 2015 did bring some health issues that slowed me down a bit; but have not stopped me! I have given up yoga classes but continue to practice at home where I can pace myself. 2016 I've regained a lot of strength and continue to improve. Whatever challenges are put in your way; never give up on a healthy lifestyle! I'm back working in the yard and gardens again and loving it!
Time with my family and friends and indoor "walk -n- talks" on the phone are my other primary activities. Maintaining my home and yard and gardening keep me busy. 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!
