Blessed with another beautiful day!

Trying to balance some health issues with the responsibility of looking out for others can be a challenge. I try to meet those challenges each day in a positive way.

You can never get complacent about eating well or exercising reglarly. The good news is :We can do this with the support of Soarkpeople and our wonderful Sparkfriends! It is a daily journey taken one day at a time.

Personal Information:
My husband and I live in a small town not far from the greater Atlanta area.

In June of 2012 I retired from teaching, a career that I embarked upon in 1972. During those 40 years I taught full time for 26 years and was a stay at home mom for 14 years.

I did not start any type of exercise program until I hit some roadblocks in my 60s. I am not proud of that, but I am proof that it is NEVER too late to start taking care of yourself.


Other Information:
I love to spend time with my daughter, son-in-law and two granddaughters
(ages 9 and 11) who live in the Atlanta area.

DH and I spend lots of time with my parents
( ages 87 and 90) who live 10 minutes away. They are needing more and more of our time & attention.

I love the tranquility of nature. Gardening and feeding the birds are my daily indulgences.

I love coffee, and I love chocolate.

I now love exercise (amazing, but true). I didn't begin any form of exercise program until I was in my 60s, following a serious accident. What a difference today!

“The whole idea of motivation is a trap. Forget motivation.
Just do it. Exercise, lose weight, test your blood sugar, or
whatever. Do it without motivation. And then, guess what?
After you start doing the thing, that's when the motivation
comes and makes it easy for you to keep on doing it.”
-John C. Maxwell

I am so glad you made it home, safely. My condolences to you and your husband. It must have been a very trying, tough, two weeks for both of you. I thought of you often. Please get some rest and recharge.
Take care of yourself.
(((Hugs))) Marlis
