Working to live IN each day! It is way too easy for me to allow a day to disappear into busyness without taking any time to savor life.

My Goals:
Long Term Goal: To be a very healthy, very old woman, surrounded by great-grandchildren and still living independently and enjoying my life.

I want to be as healthy as I can be at age 67.

I want to lose weight to a goal my doctor has set for me.





My Program:
It has been a long, dry season for weight loss and I need to get to work.
I recently read "Younger Next Year" and I'm determined to add regular every day exercise! I WILL get up to an hour at least 3 times a week - according to the book, everyday would be optimum! I just need to MOVE; that is the component that is missing!

Personal Information:
I grew up in North Dakota and attended the University of North Dakota for one year. Returned to college when I was 44 and graduated - now that felt good. I live in Ohio now. My husband was stationed here for his last Air Force assignment and we stayed in the area when he retired from the Air Force.
I've retired as of January 1, 2011!!.
I've met the goal of getting back to quilting finally. Two small projects completed recently. It keeps my hands too busy for food. I also love reading, spending time with friends, and traveling occasionally.

Other Information:
My Mantra -
Believe in Miracles.
Forgive everyone.
Life is not fair, but it is good.

My Other Mantra:
What doesn't kill you just doesn't kill you!

I would love to read your "5 likes" blog! Please tell me if I miss it. It's a great way to get to know people. I'll keep an eye out for it! emoticon

I'm glad you liked the photos of the Grotto! You can find more here:

I was a volunteer gardener there for a while. Prayer time is great. I would like to add more of that as well. I bought a prayer book today. Guess where I got it? At an art museum! I was so surprised that it would be there. emoticon

We are all setting goals, on teams, or otherwise. I came across this and thought it was appropriate for those goals we would like to achieve.

Goals that are not
written down are only wishes...
Goals are dreams
without deadlines.
The most important thing
about goals is having one!

emoticon emoticon We can & will achieve those goals emoticon emoticon

Sometimes when I say
"I'm fine,"
I want someone to look
me in the eye and say
"tell me the truth"
