My name is Judy I retired this February. I was flip flopping back & forth with my weight for too long. In Jan. of this year I started to be a MINDFUL eater. When I go out to a restaurant ( which is not too often ) I go on line to read their menu & pick out from home what I want. That way I already know what I will have as if I did not I would be prone perhaps to order unhealthy. If I go to a buffet before even picking up the plate I walk the buffet twice then I pick out my grilled meat chicken & fish or if not grilled will get chicken take the skin off & breading so I have some protein. Then the rest of my plate is filled with all kinds of vegetables, plus a ;large salad with no dressing on it as I would not be able to taste the vegetable in it's crispy form. I use to smother my salad with dressing, then there is a;ways plenty of fruit . I always order water no sugared drinks !!! I am also & still can not believe my attitude change on working out. I walk 2 to 4 miles a day, swim 3 times a week for an hour straight, then Zumba twice a week. I almost lost my hand due to an accident. So I have changed in my thinking so much about life. I try to be a MINDFUL eater & MINDFUL in my exercise !!!

Never wanted to because marriage to me is forever, my parents divorced & so many other family & friends are divorced so I thought NOT ME , BUT I met my husband & he had all 7 qualities I was looking for. I worked in a pharmacy ( 27) years.

    I'm soooo ready to escape to a warm & sunny beach!
    It's super hot & humid here, but for some reason it always feels better at a beach!
    I'm not much on tv or reading, but am snuggled up with my new found fad, an adult coloring book! This will get me through my down time!
    Enjoy your weekend Judy!

    Hi Judy I live in Auckland in New Zealand and we are in the middle of Winter, that is why it is so cold they say it is going to get colder over the weekend, Hubby feels the cold something terrible as he is on blood thinners.

    Thanks for the Sparkgoodie Judy!
    I think I'm going to retire most of my heels & switch to flats for work. I'm trying really hard to be patient & sit still, not an easy task for sure!
    You had an awesome fitness day yesterday! Keep up the good work my friend! Can't wait til I can join you!
    It's really hot & humid here too, but I've been staying inside all week.
    Take care,
