After a six year absence from Spark I am back, not because I need to lose weight or get fitter but I am here again to stay motivated and involved with all that Spark has to offer.
In those six years I experienced many firsts: a hip replacement which has been a 100% success and game changer, another grandchild (a very dynamic girl), a new house and neighbourhood, the graduation of my daughter from eleven years of veterinary studies, adoption of a plant based diet and sadly the death of my husband.
Life throws curveballs at times but once you get back up you find that new challenges and freedoms await. I have decided that age is just a number and so I will work hard at fuelling and caring for my mind and body as best I can. Canada Day seems to be as good a time to begin so here I go.

Goal- maintain my weight in the low to mid 130's

    Time for e to get involved here again after a four plus year absence. I have maintained my weight but have lost strength as I grow older. We moved into our new home five years ago and have spent a great deal of time landscaping and finishing small construction details. I now have two grand babies, a boy and girl. Unfortunately I lost my husband to cancer earlier this year so am now navigating a new reality, so far, so good. I am back to fine tune my diet (primal) and get back to strength training. It's time to work hard, I will be 70 in a few more months.

    Hi MJ. I was so hoping you would be here - I've not been active with Sparks for sometime, but am always checking to see if you're back. Hope all is well with you and you're back here and posting soon!
