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!

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.

I would love to dig up a stump! If the ground ever thaws, I'll do just that.

All I meant was that I get tired of always making things up as I go along. I feel like a roulette player who just wants to walk away from the table.

Probably what I should learn to do instead of growing up is to STFU. emoticon

And as for your frog chomping buddies, this morning when I came downstairs there were, in the dining room, two wings and a foot - looks like maybe a robin. I suspect it came down the chimney in the wind last night. Figures: first harbinger of spring and my boys ate it.

I would also hope the bumpersticker meant animal brains, though I still find that disturbing enough. LOL. People who eat them here brag about it. It's like people who brag about drinking their coffee black or their whiskey straight. They do that here a lot too. When Benny used to drink coffee at work he would be reminded that real men don't use sugar and creamer. Of course he didn't listen to them or care but it's pretty stupid. He is not concerned about his manhood. LOL.

To be honest I often wonder what I'm doing here. It's a feeling often shared with me by people who move here from other areas. I didn't move here until I was in high school and it was the same back then as it is today. The truly odd thing is that our local leaders talk about how progressive they are while they make statements like, "How do we get rid of all the mobile homes here and these trailer trash people?" and "Marriage is between a man and a woman." I'm not even going to get started on what they have to say about gay people, people of different races, even women. It' horrible. I love the outdoor beauty here but I wish it were less redneck. Jeff Foxworthy is funny until you have to live his comedy routine. LOL.

LOL!! The bumper sticker person probably is from someone transplanted there from a place like here. LOL. We have the brain eaters here too. Benny's first real GF was a brain eater. She liked brains of any kind. He said they really stink and it made him sick to smell her cooking them. A lot of rednecks here like squirrel brains and fight over who gets to eat it. So gross! They cook squirrels that look like they are whole. They do it on Duck Dynasty too. That's why when we were invited out to dinner here we were always afraid. I worked with a woman whose husband was disabled and she had a house full of kids. People would give her any kind of animal and they would eat it. Including roadkill. Starlings. She invited me to dinner and her dIL warned me to make sure what I was eating. Lots of people eat squirrel, rabbit, deer, here so I was like - "Are we talking possum and raccoons?" and she said "Yes and yes and other things........" If it walked through their yard it was fair game and one of the other co-workers said her neighbors accused them of killing and eating their cats. OMG!!!!! You would be surprised at some of the people I enountered as a nurse - people who lived like they are in a third world country right in our area. I'm sure it's probably everywhere but we have more than our fair share of kooks. We found out that one of these people had opened a rural restaurant and started a catering business. They wanted us to come to their place to eat. OMG! ROFLMBO!!

Thanks. I hate being left out!! I loved the article!

My Firefox recently disappeared on my computer so I have switched to using I.E. It sucks. My son said I should try to reinstall Firefox but I hate to because I never know what rude suprises will happen. I dread it.
