YES ~ I CAN!!!

Hello everyone...

I have been on this earth for 76 years, (never thought I would say that!!!)... still think I'm 40 sometimes, fairly active and wanting to get healthier.
~ Being 76 years YOUNG is far more cheerful and hopeful than being 40 years OLD!

***Now that I am 76....I don't feel any different than I did 25 years ago. I still work hard in my garden, run up and down the stairs in our house a dozen times a day...go for walks and dance to my favourite ...
Hello everyone...

I have been on this earth for 76 years, (never thought I would say that!!!)... still think I'm 40 sometimes, fairly active and wanting to get healthier.

***Now that I am 76....I don't feel any different than I did 25 years ago. I still work hard in my garden, run up and down the stairs in our house a dozen times a day...go for walks and dance to my favourite boogie music. May be a little less ~ but doing it.

I'm still 30 lb over my ideal weight...but considering....I'm learning to accept myself and be me. After all, what else do I have to aspire to at this stage of the game? Just to continue serving Jehovah, living a happy and active life and enjoying my family and friends.

I am married, mother of 3 girls, 4 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren ...all so very precious!

I am passionate about living here on the west coast. I love the rain forest, the mountains, the fantastic beaches, creeks, rivers and lakes. And the wildlife is so beautiful. I never tire of it, even when a momma deer comes up the street at night and eats my hostas :)

When I was younger, it all came so easy. And thus ~ this is the lesson I have learned here on SP. That nothing comes easy when it comes to self discipline. It comes with EFFORT.
Stay with SP and you can't go wrong!

Thank you to all who have and are supportive. It means a great deal to me.

The following quote is from Beth Donovan (INDYGIRL) Jan.26/13 blog.

"My message to everyone is that you can do it at any time in your life at any age, even while disabled. Just don't give up. Time does not matter, screw ups do not matter, failures are not ends, they are speed bumps. There is no more wagon to fall off of, there is only the journey. Make small changes and tweaks that you can sustain for a lifetime. Adapt your eating plan to your lifestyle, not the other way around. Then you will see the changes come."

My Goals:
Short term goal: Be healthier for my Alaskan cruise in May. (Done)

To see my daughters turn 65...
Which means I could then possibly live to see my great granddaughters married. YESSSS!!!

My Program:
Walking, treadmill on rainy days, weights, dancing to boogie woogie and core strengthening.

Personal Information:
I was baptized as one of Jehovah's Witnesses in 1980. The best thing I ever did. Learning about Jehovah God, our creator, his purposes for mankind and applying Bible principles to my life has given me a peace of mind that I never thought possible.
I live on the West Coast of BC and love walking the forest trails, the seashore and wildlife we have here in our valley.

"One of the most difficult parts of changing how you live and how you eat is believing that change is possible.
We all say we believe that, but many of us, deep down in our hearts believe that it's possible for other people, but not for us.
That other people can do it, that the glowy warm life we imagine is for other people, not for us.
We have an unconscious belief that we can't do it, it's hopeless, and so, on some level, we stop making an effort.
We lapse into the way it always was or is. But change really is possible.
And it really does take a fierce kind of longing, and a fierce kind of love for yourself.
For the life you know is possible. Ask yourself what you love most of all.
Do you love your life? And are you willing to take action on your own behalf?"

“In terms of days and moments lived, you’ll never again be as young as you are right now, so spend this day, the youth of your future, in a way that deflects regret. Invest in yourself. Have some fun. Do something important. Love somebody extra. In one sense, you’re just a kid, but a kid with enough years on her to know that every day is priceless."
-Victoria Moran
