I am a healthy 71 yr. old woman who keeps trying to improve herself and finding has been a Godsend. I live in Northern Canada by a wonderful lake which I can see as soon as I step out the door or anywhere I walk in town. Used to always spend half the yr. in Baja but DH has had a lot of health problems so I insist we stay home till he is much better. I love to read and serve my Creator. My husband is a second marriage and he is a good father to the 7 children and 10 grandchildren we have. I do well getting exercise and love healthy food. Where I fall down is on sweets but this site has made me more mindful of what I eat.

Member Since: 1/13/2011

Fitness Minutes: 141,825

My Goals:
I would like to get control over what I do in my life. I want to have the time to create a healthy lifestyle no matter where I am, at home, visiting or enjoying a few hrs. of social time with or without friends.

My Program:
I will schedule a portion of my time to planning my food and exercise, doing the exercise and preparing the food while leaving enough time for optional things. This will take a lot of pre preparing while in Canada as we live far from the grocery store.

Personal Information:
My name is Gina and I live in northern Canada . I am married to Charlie and have only a kitty now. Used to just love my dogs. I am recouperating from some devastating illnesses but my spirit is still in good shape. No need to lose any more weight. I only weigh 103 lbs and even though I am only 4'11" I don't need to lose more weight. My sister by mistake removed me from Spark for a while but I find I miss the love. I am here till I expire or get brain fog.(which ever comes first).I am almost 71 now..

Oh, my goodness!!I I have been gone for 2 yrs. I will get someone to take my picture and then post it. I was so sick I thought I would never post on Spark again. I thought I would have to learn to play a harp and memorize lovely songs to sing along with the harp music. On Mar. 5/2016 while walking the dogs I slipped on ice and fell flat on my back. Later that day I started to weaken and within a few days I was so ill I could no longer walk or make real sense any more.I had tried for m

Other Information:
My favorite books are A Tale of Two Cities and The trilogy Lord of the Rings. Mostly I love my Faith and will do anything to further it. Being a Bahai is the best thing to ever happen to me and I have such great expectations of humanity. While all the old guard is slowly disintegrating a new world is rising and it will be so much better. To me Spark is part of the new system which is all about truth and reality.

    Thank you for reading my blog, for your thoughtful comment and for expanding my horizons
    I read about your faith online "The principal Bahāʾī tenets are the essential unity of all religions and the unity of humanity." Perhaps this pandemic will lead us to better understanding of that rather than pitting one group against another.
    May 2021 be a safer, better year for all of us.

    I saw your comment on wanting a Rhumba and have to say my 3rd son and his wife got one after they first came out because they have 5 pets and they decided to sell it on Craigslist and buy and even bigger more expensive one since they loved it so much. I would't need one as my children are gone now and I don't have indoor pets; just one outside cat.

    They are all on sale now so i'd get the good price.

    emoticon I'm so sorry you are having trouble with your tongue. That is just awful. I'll be 70 tomorrow and I know so many people who have died already that I'm just glad I have made it here. It really is a turning point as when I turned 40, I hadn't even had my last child yet as I had children 15, 6, 3, and 1 and my DD was born the next year. (My husband and I got married when he was 22 and I was 19, but he just couldn't grow up.) At 50, it was the year 2000 and that seemed like a shock, but nothing like now, since the last 20 yrs flew by, so I know how short time has gotten. I am going to exercise every day from this point on as I know moving is what matters.
