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.

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 schedule cardio and strength training.
*I will track my exercise.
*I will track my food and nutrients.
*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 12 years. I hope to share my experience, strength, and hope for a better life with others.

Thank you for the comments on my blog. I'm still doing well with food and exercise. I am starting to feel healthier, stronger, and more positive. I need to be careful about allowing those negative thoughts creeping back in: can't do this; will probably quit; etc. Focusing on pumping that positive into my brain and being. I have a picture of myself from 4th of July on my dresser. The first time I saw this it took my breath away I was so heavy. It brought tears to my eyes and feel so sad. I feel the same every time I get a look at this picture. My goal is to never forget that picture and to never be that heavy again.

Hi Leslie, I'm checking in to wish you a happy, healthy & joy-filled 2015. I haven't been on SP since mid-November as life was just too busy. We celebrated Thanksgiving in Hawaii with our daughter and her family. This is naturally my busy time of year at work (year-end, insurances, etc etc) but it is busier than ever and I haven't had an assistant since May. No complaints though...in all the important ways, I have many reasons to rejoice. Tomorrow I will weigh in and see what kind of fall-out follows all my celebrating! emoticon emoticon emoticon
