I am 62 years old, a mom of three amazing grown boys, a grandmother of a 4 year old girl and a 21 month old boy, a wife of 43 years, a passionate & retired special education teacher of 36 years, and a devoted sister, sister-in-law, aunt, niece, and friend. In July of 2010, I completed the San Francisco 1/2 Marathon with some dear friends. I completed the HM in Palm Springs in Feb. 2012. I wasn't speedy, but I bettered my time from my HM in San Francisco. My goal is to remain healthy, lose a few pounds, and maintain a happy, spontaneous, nutritious, and active lifestyle.
I live in Southern California in an old but growing community located in a valley below the San Bernardino mountains on the edge of the lower desert, west of Palm Springs. My husband and I have lived and raised our boys in our current home (previously his grandparents retirement home) for 38 years.

SparkPoints: 118,190

Fitness Minutes: 81,238

My Goals:
Now that I understand the Spark program more completely I can set better goals:
*I will exercise at least 5 days a week.
*I will drink 8 glasses of water each day.
*I will walk/jog 4-5 times per week.
I will practice yoga at the studio 3-5 times per week.
*I will track my walk/jog miles and exercise minutes daily.
*I will track my food and nutrients periodically to stay on track.
*I will read inspirational meditations and pray each morning.....no excuses....positive outlook.
*I will stay active, productive, and engaged in life every day.
*I will show GRATITUDE in my thoughts and actions.

My Program:
I am diving full speed into the Spark program and determined not to get discouraged or deterred from my goals.

Personal Information:
I have had many personal hurdles to overcome in my life. I have successfully overcome them with the help of God, a supportive husband, three wonderful sons, several very important biological family members, and amazing friends. I continue to live a blessed life one moment at a time. I expect to have many more hurdles in the future and feel prepared to meet the challenges.

Other Information:
I had two heart attacks in 1989 & 1991. I am in remission from an autoimmune disease called Sweet's Syndrome. I had a complete hip replacement in 2006. I had cataracts in both eyes, lenses replaced in 2008.
My jogging/walking began in 2010. Anything is possible at any age!!!

A crucial aspect of my spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical health is that I am a successfully recovering alcoholic of 13 years. I hope to share my experience, strength, and hope for a better life with others.

Leslie, thanks for the congrats on 1,000 minutes this month. I almost feel like I am cheating, though. I never used to count anything but my "fixed" exercise routing; no cleaning, walking, etc. Since I'm wearing the fitbit it syncs everything to SP so all my daily movements get counted. I've just never counted my exercise minutes like that so even I am surprised some days!! emoticon

"What will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?" Mark 8:36

This reminds me of a very special song we as a blue grass gospel group perform. It is called emoticon You Can't Take It with You When You Go". The closing ine of the chorus is my favorite..."You'll never see a UHaul tied behind a hearse." emoticon

I am so thankful for your friendship which to me is truly priceless. Blessings to you today and always! emoticon
