DIETITIANBECKY is a SparkPeople Motivator!
Hi! Iï¿½m Becky, the Registered Dietitian with Sparkpeople. I live on my ï¿½family farmï¿½ in southern Indiana with my husband, daughter, and son. It is a small rural community. The closest fast food restaurant is 20 miles away and the nearest shopping mall requires a 50 minute drive. Yes, it is slightly slower-paced, but a pace that I cherish.
I enjoy working in my vegetable garden, preparing new recipes, sewing, and walking in my woods with my canine companions, Roxie and Cassius. My children will tell you that I am fixated on eating meals together as a family at the kitchen table. This is often the only chance to connect and catch-up. It is a time to comfort the pains of the day and celebrate the joys of living.
I also admit that I am a techno-nerd. I do not Twitter. I cannot Facebook. Heck, I donï¿½t even own a cell phone. However, I do enjoy connecting with others at Sparkpeople as we journey together to improve our health. So join me, as we:
Ignite our inner fire,
Fuel the blaze daily,
And spread the SPARK to others.
Nutritionally Yours, Dietitian Becky

Hi-it's me again! lol!!!
That's a good question to ask myself---I like to go for walks--and that's as close as my front door. I also like to DIG! lol! I'm a gardener by trade. but, can't always do that. I also like to meditate, and that would be helpful-especially since it is calming, and feels like I've been angry a lot lately. :: sigh :: I like to dance around my front room to old songs from the 70's or some funk...just moving the body, ya know?
It is feeling great to be getting back in the fitness mode--I've been doing strength training (at home) and going for walks. I'm making progress with the scale, so that's positive reinforcement!
I have a friend who lives in Quincy, IN. She also is in the middle of a quiet country life, and they seem to like it.
If you ever get to the Terre Haute area (well, really, it's by Centerville), there's a very cool place called the Exotic Feline Rescue Center--it cost something like $10/person to get in, but they are a rescue center for animals that shouldnt be pets--tigers particularly, and lions & other big cats. I highly recommend it--it's a nice tour of the place. Took my Girl Scout troop there, back when I had a troop--it's a very interesting place!
Nice to touch base with you!
