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 55 years old, married with one daughter.

January, 2015 ~

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

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

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 ...

January, 2015 ~

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

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

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."

If you lost the sparkmail...it was basically seeing how you were and inviting you to my latest adoption blog.
Good to hear from you, it has been awhile-maybe close to 3 months. Hope you are and your family are well? I see you are still counting your fitness minutes -that is awesome you are keeping up with it. I am hanging in there, take it a day at a time. I am feeling now the best I have in 2 years, since my bike accident. The laser therapy & Chiropractic treatments sure have helped me get through all the injuries (4) over the past 2 years! So onwards and forwards...looking to get to Onederland by next year!! emoticon emoticon
Have a great week! Stay in touch more often! emoticon
Enjoy that great weather...wish I was in the 70's instead of high 80's!! emoticon

Good Morning Maria,
I hope that you had a wonderful weekend. Mine was good although I ate a couple of things I shouldn't have yesterday. emoticon I'm not giving up though.
Just want to wish you success and blessings this week.
