Our Wedding Day 1994
Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
It's been quite awhile since I updated my page. On November 27th, 2013 by life changed suddenly and drastically. My wonderful husband died with no warning. It has been a tough time since then, and I gained 20 pounds since January 2014. But I am ready to get back on track again. Miss you every day, Babe.
I am a landscape architect and want to look as creative as I feel. So far I kept off 30 pounds, 20 since I started with SparkPeople. I look forward to reaching my goals. My next goal is to lose 30 pounds.
My goal is to be healthy, which includes stronger and slimmer than I am today. I want to be able to play with my children and in the future, my grand children.
I plan to track everything that passes through my lips as well as all of my exercise. It is challenging. Right now my goal is 20 minutes of exercise 6-7 days a week, eating 1400-1600 calories a day.
I was happily married with 2 dogs and between us, 5 children. November 27, 2013 my life changed drastically. My husband died unexpectedly. Now I have to learn how to live all over again.
My favorite exercises are Pilates, Elliptical, Stationary Bike, Weight Lifting and especially swimming and exercises in the pool. I would have loved to take long walks with my husband and dogs, but arthritis in both knees stopped me. Now I have replaced both knees and no longer have a husband to walk with.

Ghostly greetings! Carve out your day with positivity. Rattle your bones with exercise activities. Brew your cauldron with healthy menu potions. Have a TERROR-ific and BOO-tiful Halloween!
I'm wishing you frightfully fun from my sparkpage to yours.
I embrace you with monster hugs for Halloween night.
BEWARE to avoid the awakened Spirits cemetery tours.
As this year brings haunted houses, ghoulish costumes and screaming delight.
The brewing cauldrons are overflowing with healthy potions galore.
"Hang around for a spell!" the witches will cackle.
Bats flying, spider webs spinning and creepy crawlers soon join the horror.
Let's just hope, the rattling skeletal bodies do not unshackle.
Hours away, the spooktacular fun will be here.
It is October 31st, I send you this haunting greeting.
Be sure to watch for costumed children to appear.
Wishing you a BOO-tiful Halloween of trick-or-treating!

“CHANGE: Don’t just talk about it, go out there and do it.
Don’t just meditate about it, go out there and create it.
Don’t just pray about it, go out there and take action; participate in the answering of your own prayer.
If you want change, get out there and live it."
Thanks for commenting on my blog, "The Power To Amaze Myself." Have a healthy week!

Yvonne - It's great to see you posting again! I've missed you, and pray that all is well with you and your family.
I could really use your expertise with landscape design right about now! We are fumbling our way through trying to downsize the size and number of garden s we have. Somehow, it seems that ALL of the tags in the pots from the garden centers LIE about how big / small things get. In my yard they all end up doing the exact opposite of what the tags say......
