week 77 of my streak for "Exercise for at least 90 minutes per week" earned 11/14/2016
Eight good habits
I love all living things: people, animals, and plants. I am an amateur herbalist, and love to cook with and use herbs for all sorts of things.
My weight gain has happened gradually, and I'm not starving myself to take it off. Exercise is key with me. As the grandmother of seven, I find that weight no longer bounces off like it once did. I actually wonder if I really should be the soft pillow my own grandmother was that made her hugs wonderful! Then I think about the health challenges that presents, and I get "real."
I have several circles of friends: my church family, always the first friends wherever we move, my friends at the Bernina store where I used to work, my chorus friends (the source of the gold medal), my herb club and gardening friends, and the walking club that started me walking some 15 years ago. I talk about Spark People to all of them.
To feel fit and healthy, and physically vital.
Eating less desserts and more real food; eliminating processed foods.
Born during WWII in a "Maternal Nursing Home" (an adjunct to the local hospital) in North Platte Nebraska, lived in several big cities ever since: San Diego, Philadelphia, Washington D.C. Moved from Dallas to Missouri in summer of 2014. Love growing herbs, singing, quilting, and crazy quilting. Grandmother of seven. Trying to increase my dependence on God, and to quit thinking I have all the answers.
I'm an avid reader. Not a single day goes by without a book, in my "reading chair," in bed, in the throne room.

Hi so glad you could join us on the Trim Healthy Mama plan. I use the G powder but only a very little as it goes a long way. In my smooties I use 1/4 tsp only. And in my soups like a tsp. It is flavorless, but I think too much might make things strange.

Thanks for commenting on my Dutch Girl quilt. That was the first quilt I made and did not really know what I was doing. ((HUGS)) Linda Kay
