1/7/2013...

I've been a SP member since 5/2011. I'm 51, a wife, a mom, and a grandma! I love God and I love my family! I've lost 50 lbs so far... love the non-scale victories - like sitting in booths again, not moving the driver's seat back or steering wheel up after hubby has driven...

When I was exercising, I gained amazing strength! But then, life happened again - and life got busy - and I didn't exercise... I've found that I've lost that strength... I MISS ...

I've been a SP member since 5/2011. I'm 51, a wife, a mom, and a grandma! I love God and I love my family! I've lost 50 lbs so far... love the non-scale victories - like sitting in booths again, not moving the driver's seat back or steering wheel up after hubby has driven...

When I was exercising, I gained amazing strength! But then, life happened again - and life got busy - and I didn't exercise... I've found that I've lost that strength... I MISS that strength and energy!

Life continues to be busy - especially with caring for our youngest grandbaby 4-5 days/nights a week...

My hubby and I were both sick as we started the new year (hubby-pneumonia & me - wheezing/cellulitis - so starting a strong new year "go get 'em!" isn't happening.

But - I'm not one that's for resolutions. Everyday needs to be a choice. Goals are okay - but sometimes I forget I even make those goals... My life doesn't feel like I'm in control of it. Hubby works from home, add baby to the mix, and making my own choices and schedule gets complicated.

For me, spiritual goals are priority, then physical, relational, home come after.

Having said all that -

Member Since: 5/20/2011

SparkPoints: 21,858

Fitness Minutes: 2,786

My Goals:
overall goal: to weigh 180 lbs (after I get there, I'll see where I'm going from there)

to be more active- chair exercise or xbox kinect on days that are stay-at-home days

to get at least 2,000 steps in each day.



My Program:
Well - I finally found a way to change my eating habits. I like simple and repetitive, I like not having to make decisions for every meal - I started using the Special K challenge as a guide...

Exercise is difficult right now... but thanks to the Chair Exercise Team, I'm chair dancing and using other chair exercises to begin to to be active and MOVE.

Personal Information:
I'm a wife of an awesome husband, a mom of 3 adult kids, and grandma to 3 amazingly wonderful grandchildren! Born in NM, grew up in AZ, college and early marriage/family in MI (1979-1998); now living in the northwoods of Wisconsin.

My hubby and I are in full-time ministry as church planters here.

I love God and He's first in my life. I cannot do anything without Him. I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me!

Other Information:
The Bible is my favorite book! I also enjoy reading Christian mysteries, other Christian favorite authors are Tozer, Ken Gire, Isabell Kuhn, E M Bounds.. I'm a pianist and vocalist. I love to play games - both physical (board/cards) and computer/on-line hidden object games. I've spent a lot of my life teaching Sunday School/Bible clubs for kids, but also really enjoy teaching God's Word to other women.

from Ignatius of Loyola: "Our only desire and one choice should be this: I want and I choose what better leads to God's deepening life in me."

Hope you enjoy the following friendship poem... emoticon

What Is A Friend?

A friend is someone always there
in the back of your mind,
providing feelings of comfort and security.
A friend is someone
who adds happy sparkle to your life,
joy, fun, a predictable creator of happiness.
A friend is a stormproof shelter
from life’s challenges, troubles, uncertainties,
an unassailable bond overcoming any challenge,
strengthening the connection in the process.
You are all this and more, my friend.
Thank you.

With spring just around the corner I thought this was a perfect time to share this Poem about springtime. Hope you enjoy....

Sweet Spring

When the gloomy gray sky turns to clear azure blue,
And the snow disappears from the ground,
When the birds start to sing, and our moods start to lift,
Then we know Spring is coming around.
When the first flower bulbs poke their heads toward the sun,
Golden daffodils, hyacinths, too;
When the brown grass turns green, and the wildflowers bloom,
Then sweet Spring makes its showy debut.
Once again we awake from cold winter's pale dream,
As our minds and our bodies revive;
We rejoice and delight in spring's colorful sight;
Each new spring makes us glad we're alive!
