I am completing a move to the coast and will begin a new chapter in my life. My daughter is expecting in her first child in February and has asked me to help when needed. What an awesome honor filled with excitement and anticipation! I am so glad I joined Sparks those many months ago!!! I am now healthy and so ready to welcome this new, little person into our world. I am also armed with knowledge to see that the little one learns healthy habits as a fact of life, not as an afterthought. I have much to be thankful for and I am so blessed!!!

Member Since: 6/5/2007

Fitness Minutes: 45,153

My Goals:
I plan to build a life style, not "diet". I want to learn to not stress over the small things, but aim for the big picture. I plan on achieving this by celebrating each hurdle overcome; i.e. eating breakfast every day, NOT weighing myself every day, moving more, etc. My goals are to accomplish each challenge - with a smile and knowledge gained.

My Program:
I am staying on track by using the tools provided. I refer to this site cotinually and I stay focused on the goal - getting healthy. I am tracking my nitrition and fitness, remembering that this for ME!!!

Personal Information:
I live in a small, rural town located in the mountains of Northern CA. The weather is great and the garden grows. I like to garden, read, spend time with family and friends and surf the net. I am 56, separated for 5+ years and will remain that way! My daughter and grandson are the light of my life - they make my heart sing. Life is good.

Other Information:
I read voraciously and many favorite authors - my favorite movie is the Lord of The Rings trilogy. My favorite T.V. shows are The Gilmore Girls, Stargate SG1, CSI Miami, Criminal Intent and Law and Oder.

    “I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.”

    But I had to find the time to say, I'm glad I know you & I hope you enjoy your day!
