To Stay Healthy

I still love life!

I continue to look forward to embracing LIFE and ALL OF ITS ADVENTURE!!

I continue to look forward to embracing LIFE and ALL OF ITS ADVENTURE!!

Working part time, and became a Nerium Brand Partner 8/18/13 to do what I love best....networking & helping others.

I have few regrets and have found I am fully in charge of my health at this stage, continuing to work through small physical challenges.

I am a mother, a cousin, an auntee, a friend, a co-worker, nana, and almost great-grandmother! I work part-time at an elementary school. I volunteer several hours a week, take Professional Development classes through work, exercise, and always take a R & R day when my body needs a rest.

My big concern has been & probably always will be is my percentage of body fat, and my waist size. In the summer of 2010, I received a note in the mail from my primary doctor, she was very pleased with my results of a recent bone density test compared to the year before in 2009...I think it's sinking in my brain now...STRENGTH TRAINING WORKS!

Fitness Minutes: 16,468

My Goals:
to continue to listen to my body...progress at it's pace

(give myself 365 days to be injury-free)

to climb Tiger Mtn...last time was 8/1991




My Program:
April 7, 2013

I no longer drink soda pop, junk food, or jelly beans from Costco...I have lost many #'s & 11 inches. I no longer have those "cravings" I thought were normal; instead I long for "greens" and health! I am still @ Curves...though challenged by 2 back-to-back sports injuries (repetitious motion); physical therapy has certainly helped tremendously. It's been a "new" adventure kind of year....living alone after many years of sharing with a significant other. However, I'm ok & happy within my "own skin" as I've adopted a cleaner eating style tweeking my personal choices as I go along...










12/22/12

Still attempting to track consistently and stay within 2300mg of sodium per day. Not exercising at Curves, switched to a Wellness Program Gym at One-to-One Physical Therapy. Just started yesterday. Still dealing regularly with hurts from past injuries...means I must pace myself constantly. Thank goodness for SP!!

Personal Information:
I love life!! I teach as a Educational Assistant II here in the area, love to read, workout, play on the computer, sing, and highly interested in keeping myself healthy! I am single with a grown son, his domestic partner, and lots of animals to love!

Other Information:
"Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase." -Martin Luther King Jr.

My life is in a constant state of change. Awareness allows me to keep pace with that change. Only by knowing the person I am, can I create the person I want to become.

Hi to you, too! I haven't been a very good friend to you...the computer really sucks up my day...so I'm trying to do more activity and less keyboarding! (my fingers are nice & slim; now I need to work on other body parts! lol)

Our younger son is getting married Saturday...and my healthy habits are trying to slip away with all the emotions, excitement, nerves, company, etc. etc. (excuses, excuses!)

Hope you're having a good summer...boy, it's almost gone for us in the high mountains and it just barely started here!

We'll help you in case you start to miss WW. I'll bet you can do 100% w/ SP! Go for it! We're right beside you ... cheering!
