Personal Information:
Indiana country girl.
Born and raised in a small town and have lived in the country since I was married. My husband and I have two daughters and 7 grandchildren. We both work from home and stay busy with our work, family, dogs, cats, chickens and a few cows. We grow a big garden with lots of flowers. We enjoy hiking, going to small town festivals, antiquing, yard sales and family gatherings. I also like going to the mall!!!!
I am an artist in my soul and love to decorate, paint, craft and just be creative. Currently re-learning to sew and trying my hand at mosaics.

Other Information:
What I am doing now to maintain and improve:
Eat 1200 - 1400 calories per day. Eat lots of protein and vegetables prepared w/o butter, fat, creams or cheeses (most of the time). I try to eat at least half of my fruits and veggies raw. I incorporate small amounts of olives, avocado, nuts and non-fat plain yogurt into my diet. Breads and pastas are limited to 3 or 4 meals a week.
I am a late bloomer on consistent exercise, but I am now getting in about 30-45 min of exercise a day--from almost 0 min.at the beginning. I do walking/jogging intervals for about 30 min.every other day. Weights, yoga, etc. about a half an hour to 45 min. every other day. I mix it up sometimes--from doing dance videos with my daughter or going for a long weekend hike or whatever else beckons.

Thanks so much for your comments on my blog about bullying. I've also tried to refrain from turning into a bully myself, but we're all human and make mistakes from time to time. Hopefully we can all learn from them and not be destined to repeat the horrible behavior that we've been the victims of.

Have a great Sunday!
