Welcome to the Present Moment! May you always live in the present, not dwelling on what happened in the past and not dreaming forever of the future, missing the present. Live the here and now!

We can still have goals, we can still have memories, we can still live in the Present. The idea is to not stay so firmly in one or the other so that you miss out on Today! Stop and smell the flowers - they are beautiful!

Member Since: 1/24/2008

Fitness Minutes: 90,242

My Goals:
I live in hot Texas, am a Catholic Southern girl, married, and we have 5 children of various ages. I would like to be many pounds smaller, in shape, good shape, and be able to take care of my family better. I would like to raise my children to be happy, healthy people, following the customs and traditions of our ancestors.

My Program:
In order to meet my goals, I am currently homeschool my three youngest children, I am active in the Church, and we are trying to take care of my in-laws. I am exercising when I can, and sitting too often at the computer! Update: Both my in-laws died in September 2009, and now we are trying to take care of the estate.The older children are moving in and out at various times, and moving on with their lives, which is good! The younger ones are still at home, trying to grow up.

Personal Information:
I am Jari. Who are you?

Other Information:
Favorite books - most of the ones I have read! I am often at the library - my children consider it one of their second homes, along with Church and gymnastics.
Other things I do: yarn things, like crocheting & knitting, although I'm a beginner at both. Sewing, with a machine usually, and wear mostly homemade clothing. And visit SparkPeople!

    Giving away stuff, your post is funny! Doesn't it feel wonderful to clean out!


    Who knew that healthy tastes so good! I hope your enjoying every bite. Keep up the best lifestyle and choices you are making. Don't sweat the small stuff - no diet police will follow you for enjoying some treats. Remember it is the overall picture that counts add in some nice long walks or play times with the kids. Life should be fun and exciting without the stress of what is on our dinner plates. Let's get back to living like kids. Take the time and watch the kids play - they run, jump, dance and laugh "just cause" without effort. We need to learn to so the same. Let's get started we can do this.

    Turn up that music let's- pray, laugh, sing and dance "with" life and stay positive.
