For Me, For God, For Life

I am Sheri, 44 years young, and have been part of SparkPeople for a number of years on and off. The only reason for being on and off are my 38 medical health reasons. Since November 2011 I've been going through an Emotional Breakdown aka Nervous Breakdown. I'm strong enough now to come back. I've also now got a wheelchair and am losing the ability to walk which will impair my ability to exercise.

I am Sheri, 44 years young, and have been part of SparkPeople for a number of years on and off. The only reason for being on and off are my 38 medical health reasons. Since November 2011 I've been going through an Emotional Breakdown aka Nervous Breakdown. I'm strong enough now to come back. I've also now got a wheelchair and am losing the ability to walk which will impair my ability to exercise. I will use my walker so long as I am able to, but when needed, I do have the wheelchair at my disposal.
I've learned a lot in the past 2 years, including how strong one can be without realizing it. Having the right supports in place and the right coping techniques makes all the difference in the world.
I'm not expecting a miracle, but I am expecting to be here a few times each week and to try and keep a Positive Focus on my life through my days.
Sweetie, the stray cat who wandered into my life in 2010 is still with me and will be 4 on January 1, 2014. :)

My Goals:
I am returning from an absence from going through a 'Nervous Breakdown' that began in November 2011, which I am still going through. I'm simply here to get as fit as possible with 38medical conditions, and very LIMITED mobility, and to encourage others to be all they can be and enjoy who they are in spite of and despite whatever circumstances may come their way. I love my life, I love God even more, and I intend on being as healthy as I can be with my medical issues with the help and grace of God.

My Program:
I have recorded a program called SIT AND BE FIT to do here at home, but for the most part, walking is my main source of exercise, with the use of my walker. I eat healthy and have for 6 years now, and that does not need to change. I bring no junk food into my home and have disciplined myself to eat what is healthy and even found great alternatives for the sweet and salt cravings we all get. If I want junk food, I have to go out to get it and make an effort to do so.

Personal Information:
I was born and raised in Ontario in Canada. Oshawa, Ontario is my hometown though I currently live in Peterborough, Ontario. I am a writer, crafter and artist; do not work for obvious reasons; believe in Jesus as my Lord and Savior; love my parents and my brother and his family dearly. I'm happily divorced and do not have children, again for medical reasons. I adore black cats and have had them for 24 years now - am on my 4th one. I play piano, craft, do art, and enjoy my life.

Other Information:
I'm an open book. If you have questions, feel free to ask.

thanks for commenting on my empty nest blog. I'd love it if they come bouncing back. They can help me clean out the gorp they left behind. lol. Really, my kids are who I love to spend time with.

Yep, I do count cleaning as exercise, but since I have no thyroid, I do need to rev it up sometimes and add a bit more movement.

Thanks for the comment on my blog!

It is something that I'm very enthusiastic about. I wish I had more time--if we wanted to, we could go to an event every weekend except Christmas and Thanksgiving, pretty much. But we don't have that kind of time so we average about an event a month.

I'm also acutely allergic to horses, unfortunately! I love horses and was definitely a horse-mad girl; even took lessons for a while. But my allergies were too much for it--it's a sad thing when a horse-mad 10 year old realizes that riding just isn't something she can do, but that's life.

There aren't a lot of equestrian activities, at least in our area--horses are expensive so not that many people own them and it's hard to find a site that will let us do them (jousting, etc.). The events that I go to that do have equestrian, I don't have to go anywhere near the horses, though I do like to watch. Straw and hay are my bigger allergy problems at events, especially outdoor summer events, since we use bales to mark the edges of the lists (fencing, armored) and the archery range and the like.
