The Time to Become Healthier is NOW!

Now is the time for me to get healthier and be the best me I can be! I am 54 years old, married with one daughter.

February, 2014 ~

It's time to get serious and re-focus!

I have gained some of the weight I lost, back.

I am in the process of re-evaluating what I need to do to move forward. I am changing some of my goals. Focusing on the basics. Cutting out some of the clutter.

I will continue to use the SparkPeople's website ...

It's time to get serious and re-focus!

I have gained some of the weight I lost, back.

I am in the process of re-evaluating what I need to do to move forward. I am changing some of my goals. Focusing on the basics. Cutting out some of the clutter.

I will continue to use the SparkPeople's website in ways that have been helpful to me in the past. I will use the Nutrition Tracker and the Fitness Tracker.
I will continue to support my fellow Sparkers by reading your blogs and cheering you on. I appreciate all of your kind support, too!

Let's all start the New Year with realistic and do-able goals...one step at a time.

I had reached my SparkPeople weight loss goal of 49 pounds lost on May 21, 2011.

I want to be healthy & happy for the rest of my life.

I have been overweight most of my life.

I also have been a yo-yo dieter.

I enjoy walking and yoga.

A goal of mine is to find balance and moderation in ALL areas of my life.

My name is Maria & I live in Minnesota.

I worked for over 30 years in the accounting & banking fields...I currently work part-time as a Library Assistant.
I also work on our farm where we raise several types of animals & grow vegetables & wine grapes for local consumers.

Proverbs 3:5: "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths."

I have not been on SP for so long and it shows!!!! We got a new principal who doesn't believe in down time. My mother went into hospice care so I've been going back to iowa to help out Christmas and summer. Dec '12 and jan '13 the doctor said my mom was going to die and hospice nurses were preparing us for her death but we had other plans. We prayed and mom has a will to live. I owe a lot to my siblings who stayed with her around the clock for MONTHS! She was in her own home in hospice after a hospital stay. She was removed from hospice. She's still in a hospital bed in her living room but she is doing so much better than Dec. 12. Last Christmas I had shingles so couldn't go back but was there this summer. Was glad I had time to recuperate from that with Christmas break from school Praise the Lord! How is your farm. I always think of you when I buy heirloom tomatoes!!!! emoticon

We have both come a long way since joining SP 4 years ago! Who would have thought I would enter a photo contest, let alone keep off 65 of my 69 pounds lost! I am glad we got to meet here at SP! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Oh, I forgot to mention...we are supposed to be 96 today...heat index will be in the 100's! Not dealing with this heat at all this year! But, slowly I am getting used to it and the sweat! emoticon

Thanks for adding me back.
I loved reading about you mom writing letters, my Aunts still write letters to me for every holiday and new season. It's something I always keep and love to receive from them :)

Hi Maria! Hubby just told me yesterday that the Minnesota Twins have their spring training in Ft. Myers! And we're going to a game in March when my daughter & her friend arrive for a visit! Of course, when I found out...I thought of you!

Thanks for the workout clothes! I use 'em plenty! emoticon
