Shared Fitness Tracker
I am a 69 yr. old, married, retired, woman who loves animals, enjoys X-stitching, reading, and spending time with family - especially my grandchildren. I have 3 grown children and 5 grandchildren. I volunteer at the local Humane Society and have 5 cats, all adopted from the humane society over a number of years. We also recently adopted a dog through a rescue group. I need to lose weight to improve my health and prevent new health issues from occurring. I also want to lose weight in order to be happier with the way I look...pure vanity! For me, controlling my food intake and making good choices are daily struggles....but I am committed to getting back on track.
My first goal is to be consistent about tracking what I consume and how much exercise I do.
I have joined the local Y and use their fitness center - right now I am using the treadmill with some consistency.
I live in Maine. I am married, have 3 adult children, and 5 grandchildren. I am an animal lover and have 5 cats and a dog.

"One of the most difficult parts of changing how you live and how you eat is believing that change is possible.
We all say we believe that, but many of us, deep down in our hearts believe that it's possible for other people, but not for us.
That other people can do it, that the glowy warm life we imagine is for other people, not for us.
We have an unconscious belief that we can't do it, it's hopeless, and so, on some level, we stop making an effort.
We lapse into the way it always was or is. But change really is possible.
And it really does take a fierce kind of longing, and a fierce kind of love for yourself.
For the life you know is possible. Ask yourself what you love most of all.
Do you love your life? And are you willing to take action on your own behalf?"
TGIF, Sparkfriend! I hope your week was a good one and that you're ready for a fit, fun and fantastically healthy weekend! Keep your goals in mind and keep taking steps towards them. Remind yourself that you are capable...and love yourself enough to know that you are worth the effort!

"I believe in waking up every day and taking a good step toward health, and honoring your body." -Troian Bellisario
"In terms of days and moments lived, you'll never again be as young as you are right now, so spend this day, the youth of your future, in a way that deflects regret. Invest in yourself. Have some fun. Do something important. Love somebody extra. In one sense, you're just a kid, but a kid with enough years on her to know that every day is priceless."
Just stopping by to encourage you to make the most of each day, my beautiful young Sparkfriend! Keep your goals in mind, and do something every day that will move you one step closer to attaining them. Don't ever forget that you are always worth your best effort!
Have a healthy week!
