January 22, 2010: The journey begins...

Over 50; trying to get rid of a few stubborn pounds. I started this Spark journey mid January 2010. And I'm happy to say I've reached my goal in August! Now to maintain and firm things up!

I'm glad I started this when I did; as mid April 2010 I was diagnosed with an early form of breast cancer, DCIS(Ductal Carcinoma In Situ). I now have an exercise routine and good eating habits nailed down so that I can help my recovery and keep me strong through the radiation treatments -which I am now DONE with. Thank God! I've been fighting like a girl through this and I'm doing well. Eating wholesome foods lots of veggies and fruit and getting plenty of natural vitamin D.

I just want to say thanks to all who've rendered support to me during this time. Y'all rock! (o:

My current goal would be to continue this trek of good eating and exercise and to encourage others along the way.

12/14/10: Cancer free! Passed 6 month check-up. (o:
Still experiencing residual effects from radiation treatment but I will overcome(because I'm stubborn).
What a wonderful Christmas present.

1/3/11: First Monday of the New Year! I am still here, still making those wise healthy choices. Still maintaining my goal weight...And still working on my flexibility and firming goals. I may even entertain the idea of that Couch to 5K program...we'll see.
I've gained so much from being on this site, and I'm still gaining! More knowledge, better health, more friends so many GOOD things.
Thanks SparkPeople.com for being such a great resource. (o:

3/28/2014: Haven't updated my page in a bit. I like the way it is set up and probably won't change that. As far as my weight and fitness... I have slacked off during the past couple years...
Going on four years cancer free! I'm doing what I can to keep healthy and active. Whoever said "Aging isn't for sissy's." was right!
And then I get this crazy idea to join this Spring 5% Challenge!
Pray for me! (o:

3/30/2014: I'm a Cloverleaf! I need to work this challenge and get rid of a few stubborn pounds that crept back on when I wasn't looking. Time to start tracking my food again. (o:

I checked and it is only because I was in the winter challenge that they had a link to request to stay in the same team or go to another. I was able to request the walk run jog team as I had an e-mail asking if I would like to join. I guess it will be a surprise which team you go into.
Have a good week end , thanks for comments on my blog, I am a mushy grandma :)

Thanks for the goodie. I joined the 5% challenge in the winter lost and kept off 4lb. I have decided to stay for the Spring challenge would love to loose 7lb but it seems to be so difficult to shift these lbs so easy for them to go back on. did you ask for a particular team ? I was with the walk run+jog team so have asked to stay. I was not very active on the chat but enjoyed having to post daily towards a team exercise goal

Mare, Thank you so much for the flowers and the birthday wishes. It was nice to receive them today instead of on my birthday. It feels like an extra gift. I have added you as a Spark Friend. I meant to do it before this. emoticon

I have a jawbone up which I wear all the time and we get the same average sleep. It also tells me how much light or deep sleep. I get around 3 hours of deep sleep a night. Must be our age, I would love to have at least 1 more hour of deep sleep. It is 8.30pm and feeling tired so it might be 9.30 bed with my book. emoticon

As usual, I appreciate you stopping by my blog and your ongoing support. I don't have time to Spark regularly, but I so appreciate my Sparkfriends like you. When are you going to start blogging again?
