Me as a Fashion Model ;-)

This is my favorite porch to sit on. We have 2 of them. This one faces west.

A shape I don't want to acquire. ;-)

I have 29 pics in my gallery


March 1, 2015 - 40,000 Spark Points

Hitting a points milestone should be another motivator for me to stick with this.
Really, I haven't "not stuck" with this. Sometimes, I just don't have the internet so it creates a little break in my streak.

My Goals:
2010 - My back pain seems to be gone after working on the stretches and strength training.
2) Put my talents to good use. Those would be knitting and sewing.
3) Get back to the size of all the clothes in my closet because I refuse to buy the next size up. This only requires a loss of 10 lbs.
4) Make more money so we can stay in our house.
Michigan's a rough place these days.
I can do it!

My Program:
Guess I should update here more often. I'm not following the low-carb plan. I didn't like the low-carb plan.
Common sense. That's what I'm trying now. After all, those "diets" that are strict really don't work in the long run and the grand scheme of a lifetime.
So, I'm trying to keep everything balanced.

I'm using SparkPeople and the inspiration I get from those here with me.

Personal Information:
St. Clair County is my main homefront. We also have land in da UP N. of Newberry.
I'm married to Steve, have 2 wonderful daughters by a previous marriage.
We have fish in 1 in-house tanks, fish in the pond, and a fat cat named Iggy Thunder,
and Mildred Violet the Dog. We walk outside just about everyday for our exercise. Iggy Thunder - now known as the Fat Cat should join us.
I'm working at the General Motors Tech Center as a supervisor of housekeepers which are spread out over 3 buildings. Each building has 5 attached separate buildings with 4 floors each. That's a lot of walking.

Other Information:
I knit for myself and have a shop on Etsy where I'm hoping to sell more of my pieces. It's been slow.
My current reading consists of two rather large books on nutrition that were written by the Mayo Clinic and the Dietetic Association. I did learn that I don't need to buy vitamins since we really don't need the amounts of each vitamin and mineral that we're told. Save some $!

Wow - that was a quick response. So glad you're still on! I'm with you - the pounds just don't seem to change. The ounces swing one way or another. BUT the clothes fit so much better and I feel so much better. I'm doing my first 5k timed walk this Saturday. I truly expect to be last (unless no one shows up for my age group - which is OLD)!!!

I'm not giving up either. Someday those numbers will change. So glad you're still SPARKING!!!
