The October day in Sedona I knew I had to make changes.

Welcome to my Spark page!

I havenot been here for awhile. The past year was one of pain. Finally had hip replacement surgery on 12/8/2011 I hope that I can move on and meet some of my goals:

Lose weight.
Live in the moment.
Enjoy every day.
Appreciate and enhance my overall health.
Help spread the universal love that is God within us.
Move the body, even when it resists.
Reduce Reuse and Recycle
Think before I eat.

Upload new pictures!

Fitness Minutes: 10,009

My Goals:
I would like to share with all who visit here my goal of improving the quality of the remaining years of my life. Be it 50 or 5, I hope to live them in the fitest state I can achieve.

I share this and invite you to make it one of yours as well

I want to lose this weight I have been carrying around with me for far too long.

I want to wear a dress I bought before I started to gain and never wore....

I want to be able to ride my bike up hill.

I want to be around to see electric or compressed air cars the norm on our roads.


My Program:
Walk at least 1 mile a day. Staying within my calorie range and tracking every thing I can that goes into my mouth. Drinking water! Using muscles I do not know I have.
Walking when I can.



Personal Information:
I am a transplant from Chicago to sunny southern California. God has blessed me with a husband I love and two children I love who are now grown and contributing members of society. I retired from teaching for a salary, but I think I will be a teacher until I die.


Other Information:
Crocheting, needlework,reading,
playing and walking my granddog are all favorite activities. Jane Austen is my favorite fiction writer, Shel Silverstein and ee.cummings are two of my favorite poets. I have discovered the writings of Fr. Thomas Keating. I enjoy his work a lot. I just found some delightful mysteries and am devouring them as fast as I can get my hands on them...they have recipes in them!

    Lysine helps cold sores. My grandson takes 1,000 MG a day.
    The Brewers Yeast is for naturally grown vitamins....

    Ah yes, I see your Sedona photo too! I think there is so much beauty in the Southwest. I lived in Santa Fe for three years and hiked around so much of the mountains there. I am hoping to start hiking with a group here on Saturday. And they are my age too--even better ;)

    Thanks Lady bug....I will say I have decided to skip the 25 and add a thirty....and I think thirty is going to be a spa treatment....for I am finding all the clothes I need in my closet! One other treat I love is when in the grocery store, if I had a loss that week, I allow myself to buy flowers....I love having them in the house...I do not do it every week...but most....even if it is just a few in a small bud vase by my bed. emoticon
