A 'new' me.

Hi I'm Martha-Ann.
I WILL endeavour to reach the goal I've set myself.
I CAN do it.
I want to be healthier and eat better.
I've had (still have) a few health problems but I've beaten cancer and now I'm just getting on with life.

I love SparkPeople.
It has everything I could ask for.
Good advice, great ideas but most of all friendship.
The people I've met through this site are wonderful and are helping me towards a better, healthier way ...

THANKYOU.

This is a Sanskrit proverb by the fifth century poet Kalidasa, it seems to sum things up perfectly.

Salutation to the Dawn.

Listen to the salutation of the dawn!
Look to this day,
For it is life,
The very life of life.
In its brief course lie all
The realities and verities of existence.

The bliss of growth,
The splendour of action,
The glory of power...

For yesterday is but a dream,
And tomorrow is only a vision.
But today, well lived,
Makes every yesterday a dream of happiness,
And every tomorrow a vision of hope.

Look well, therefore, to this day.
Such is the salutation of the dawn!

My Goals:
I want to feel more confident about myself.

I want to be as fit and healthy as I can.

I want to live to see my grandchildren (and possibly their children) grow up and be healthy and fit enough to enjoy them.

I want to work on small goals of 10lbs and give myself a small reward everytime I hit one.

I want to see a 'new' me!!






My Program:
Daily exercising, going for long walks, gardening.

Eating healthily.
It is not a diet, it's a healthy eating programme.




Personal Information:
I'm from Yorkshire, England...we call it 'God's Own Country'.

I live in a small village in the country but am only a few miles from the sea so I have the best of both worlds.

I'm 65 years young.

My DH and I have been happily married for 43 years.

I'm a wife, mother, grandma, nana, niece, cousin, aunt and great aunt.




Other Information:
My hobbies are very varied, everything from puzzles to zentangles, reading to gardening, walking to birdwatching, writing to photography.
I love language too, the nuances and foibles, so I enjoy dabbling with writing and poetry...my son once called me a wordsmith...I wish I lived up to it!

Just looked at your flickr pictures. OH, my - that little calf is just beautiful!! After my father-in-law died, my Mother-in-law married a dairy farmer and my children so enjoyed going to the farm. And they had such stories to share and Grandpa's cows.

Good Morning, Miss Sunshine!
Just wish we could sit down together and have a cup of tea and a long visit. I have a "fantasy" of coming to England for a visit. We meet and then go to your favorite place for tea and what do you have with your tea?? Then you take me for a walk down one of your favorite paths. Later we meet some of your friends for a light supper. Oh what a time we would have!!

But, back to reality - darn!! I am feeling so much better - about over the cold and cough. So yesterday did some shopping and also stopped at the club - had not been for a while - so had a good "walk" on the treadmill.

Quite warm here - in the high 90's and may get into the low 100's this weekend. I do enjoy the warmer weather - as long as it is not too humid.

I need to check flickr and see if you have posted more pictures - i do enjoy looking at them. I have taken a few more pictures recently but have not posted any -

Hope you have a good weekend and am so glad you are feeling much better.

Love,
barb
