ZANYGIRL1 is a SparkPeople Motivator!
Welcome to my page. I'm Karen, I'm 59, live in Illinois, and I started on SP in 2011. I was only on here for 6 months, then left until November, 2013. The first time I was dieting and trying to lose weight. But now I've made a commitment to myself to get healthy and fit, so I will live a longer and more enjoyable life. I'm here for the long haul!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My goals are to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day, exercise more and try getting at least 8 hours of sleep a night. I will have more later!
My name is Karen, I live in Illinois, not far from St. Louis. I'm married to the greatest guy on the planet (I might be alittle biased), we have 5 grown kids and 6 grandkids.
I no longer work, because of a back injury,
but I keep myself busy. I
like doing projects on my computer (like business cards & special occasion invitations) for family and friends, crafts, DIY projects, and I LOVE to cook!!

Tips from the Easter Bunny
Don't put all your eggs in one basket
There is no such thing as too much candy.
Some body parts are suppose to be floppy.
The Easter bonnet can tame even the wildest hare.
The grass is always greener in someone else's basket.
Let happy thoughts multiply like rabbits.

Giving of An Apple
A lovely little girl was holding two apples with both hands.
Her Mom came in and softly asked her little daughter with a smile:
“Sweetie, could you give your Mom one of your two apples?”
The girl looked up at her Mom for some seconds,
then she suddenly took a quick bite of one apple, and then quickly of the other.
The Mom felt the smile on her face freeze.
She tried hard not to reveal her disappointment.
Then the little girl handed one of her bitten apples to her Mom, and said:
"Mommy, here you are. This is the sweeter one."
