Day 26 - A picture of something that means a lot to you

Monday, April 11, 2011

Not really a some "thing" but a some "one".

My grandmother, "Nan", practically raised me. She's the one that knows everything about and doesn't hold her opinion back when she thinks I need to know the truth. She was born in 1928 and is still living on her own, enjoying life and looking for the next Mr. Right. I hope she finds him.

**ETA, that's my cousin with her in the photo, not me.**

    I have a special place in my heart for my Grandma too. She's no longer living, but near as ever.

    That's my cousin, Barrette. She just got married in September. Unfortunately, I didn't get home for the wedding. She did make a very beautiful bride, for sure.

    Your so lucky. I had an "adopted" Grandmother, but not a real one. She's a doll. I love your dress. You look great!

Just one more reason to love Sparkpeople.com

Sunday, April 03, 2011

I joined Sparkpeople in 2006 with the objective of losing weight and gaining a circle of friends that I could relate to. Almost 5 years later, I have something I could have never expected.
You see, in March of 2009, another Calgarian joined my home-based group - Life Inspired Calgarians. PEHASS2, or Paul as he's called in the real world, was one of the very few males in our group. He was also one of the very few runners. We became friends gradually online and I told him that he should join a running group. Eventually, this lead to an offline friendship. And then more.
Now, just over two years from when we first "met" we're moving in a whole new direction. For the next 7 or 8 months, my journey on Spark will not be including weight loss but, rather, health and fitness maintenance. The scale is already moving in the opposite direction. I'm okay with it tho'. It's all for the sake of a new Life Inspired Calgarian/Rookie Runner.

She's smart, fit & healthy, knows how to accessorize and gets to carry a whip that she knows how to use. What's not to like?

    I used to have a Wonder Woman swimsuit when I was a little girl. Every time the show came on, I would race to my bedroom, put on my swimsuit and act out the opening sequence with the show. lol

The only thing that's missing is my lock. So now I'm left to wonder... where the heck is my lock?!

    I was originally thinking gag = purse, but obviously from the shoes there, this must be your gym bag.
