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

I love to garden. Crosswords and reading keep me busy when the snow flies. Cooking is also a delight- I'm always looking for new ideas for vegetarian meals.

    White Point Resort was closed! We had a nice cabin in the woods but no access to the beach, there was construction (blasting and lots of big gravel trucks) and we were not even allowed on the site. Got our money back but it was certainly a disappointment. Lots of other things closed too... too early for most museums. But did enjoy the fishing museum and Lunendurg. Got to Digby and had scallops by the water, listened to a celtic newbies group at Paddy's Pub in Kentville. Weather was very variable. Will have to come back to go clam digging and see Peggy's Cove and spend some time at the waterfront.

    Hi Mollie. I hope you are well and doing fine. I went AWOL on my Spark plan, went to the WW and gained. AArrgghh. How is your hip doing? It seems mine is getting better and better as I grow stronger. By the way, I am back on Spark and motivated. Happy New Year! emoticon
