That's how Sue sees it!

Now that we're back in the States, you can follow my adventures at suzymobile47.blogspot.com.

Welcome to our place! Relax with us by the pool and watch the puppies romp. Come take a walk with me at sunrise and sunset--the sky here goes on forever! No wonder they decorate with pink and blue in Florida--that's the color of the vast cloud mounds in the sky, where the lightning plays at any time of day.

My Goals:
When I first joined SparkPeople, I'd seen my weight creeping up and decided that I needed to be more aware of what I was eating and how much I was exercising. Now that I've reached my goal, I'm keeping the Spark alive by adding nonweight-related goals:

THE PHYSICAL:
- Do some ST every day.

AND THE EMOTIONAL:
- Be brave in all things.
- Face challenges head on.
- Keep focus on quality work
- Envision positive outcomes for each day
- Live in the present, neither in fear of the future nor dwelling on the past.
- Make sure that every day I do a little of everything that gives me joy, like talking with SparkFriends, reading, writing, and walking.

All this will make for a VERY busy day, but what the hell. Life is short; make the most of it while you can!

My Program:
Make sure to eat at least SOME breakfast every day, for a kick-start!

Aim to walk a total of 5 miles, 10,000 steps, a day.

Eat only when hungry and stop when full. (This is NOT easy, by the way.)

Do daily pilates-type exercises to keep my hips and back limber.


Personal Information:
I recently moved to Port Charlotte, FL, from Exeter, NH, and am 66 with an emotional age of about 36.

5'7"

Went from 172 in February 2005 to a low of 111 a few summers ago (much too low for me)

Now maintaining and trying to stay below or near120, mainly to fit into more of my clothes and have a flat tummy.

This, too, isn't always easy, because Bill and I love to cook and try out new recipes all the time!

Other Information:
My passions lately are writing; walking; Sparking; gardening; and reading. Of course, that's all when I'm not working as a college textbook editor and local newspaper columnist.

Thanks Sue! I'm not sure if Sugar is back there; she spends a lot of time back there. Possibly what you are seeing is the black tire the yellow snapdragons are planted in. For many years it was a sandbox. I never dreamed I'd have a great grandchild playing back there!

Thanks Sue, back to walking and the cardiologist released me for now; but I am on meds--probably forever--but they seem to be controling things and I feel fine. If that changes, we will revisit options. Feet are pretty good now too but toe is still sore. You're right, I've had my feet up as much as possible for 6 weeks and it's taking time to rebuild my stamina. On the mend, for sure!

Thanks Sue! I agree but I've had trouble with my feet, sprained both in a garden fall early in May and then broke a toe June 2. So I've been staying off them as much as possible. Finally the feet are mended but the toe is still sore. Long story short since I couldn't do anything else I went in for a past due physical; discovered a heart issue and now dealing with that. Between the two I've lost a lot of stamina and just wasn't up for grooming her. Hardest part is lifting her to the table top. Just this past weekend back to getting in a decent walk. Better days ahead. Smiles.

It's very stressful to be a care giver. I hope to not have to do that again for a long time.

You have a full plate. I think you might be even busier than you were before retirement with Bill being down.
