I just started. I'm finally ready to put myself first! It helps that I'm almost an empty nester. I like to cook, look up new recipes and eat yummy food. I like quilting, knitting, beading, reading and fly fishing!
Put my needs up there with those of my family. My goal is to be healthier, in better shape and have more energy.
I have been a couch potato...so I'm starting small: I am drinking 8 glasses of water a day, doing strength exercises 3x week,eating breakfast, and eating 5 fruits/veggies a day.
I live in Oregon, but I'm still a Jersey girl at heart. I'm married to John, who drives me nuts and makes me laugh every day. I have 3 kids, two are grown and the youngest is a senior in high school. I've been a librarian and a teacher, and this year I'm taking some time off for me and working with John.
I have lots of interests: quilting, knitting, reading, beading, gardening, fly fishing. I love all things Harry Potter. I also love to watch favorite movies again and again. And I love Asian food.

STAND UP by Jessie J (shared by AJ, ANYA_ONION)
If you surround yourself with negative people
You'll never feel settled in or become an equal, no
They'll suppress you of your spirit and rinse you dry of smiles
So reach deep and release your inner child, yeah, yeah
If you let a frown become your normality, yes
You don't set an example for the youth of our humanity
If you spend every day wishing for the next to come
Aged and lifeless is what, yes, you'll become, yeah, yeah
So ignore the bad and the good will soon come
Don't think second best, be number one
Spread some love, don't give to receive
Strive to be happy and live to believe

"The strength of a woman is not measured by the impact that all her hardships in life have had on her; but the strength of a woman is measured by the extent of her refusal to allow those hardships to dictate her and who she becomes.”
