I'm a mom of two grown children. Actually it was my 24 year old daughter who told me about SparkPeople. I figure it's time for me to start taking better care of myself now, instead of always taking care of everybody else. I'm ready to do this now!!

Member Since: 8/12/2008

Fitness Minutes: 475

My Goals:
My goal is to get to a healthy weight for me, to get fit, and to lose inches around the middle.


My Program:
I am tracking my nutrition carefully, taking walks with Sasha at least twice a day (she would prefer more), and learning to actually put exercise time into my planner! I am drinking all that water--for the first time in my life I am measuring and tracking it. I am wearing a pedometer and doing at least 5000 steps a day. I think I'll have to UP that goal, because I am easily doing about 7000 right now.



Personal Information:
I'm from Illinois. My husband and I have two grown children, and a 3 year old black lab mix dog named Sasha. We have our own business. We help people to get healthier by marketing non-toxic, green cleaning products for their homes, and safe nutritional products. We have been doing that for 23 years. I also make and sell one-of-a-kind felted wool coats and jackets. I like landscape gardening.


Other Information:
I love the books The Shell Seekers and Coming Home, by Rosamunde Pilcher. Every year or so I read them again! I like to eat healthy, natural foods, to meditate, and I try to keep a positive attitude. I love music, and find it motivates me to exercise!

    When we feel the satisfaction of accomplishment we are motivated to take on new challenges. Knowing that the attention and resources we’ve channeled into a certain goal have brought us success gives us the confidence we need to take on more responsibilities. We also have a greater understanding of our own personal strengths, and that knowledge enables us to make good choices about the plans we make, the tasks we take on, and the new goals we wish to set for ourselves. We are ushered along by the momentum of our own success, and greater success naturally manifests as a result. Use today’s accomplishments to fuel you into action by taking on more endeavors, and you will enjoy still greater achievements.
    ARE YOU FINDING THAT BETTER HEALTH?
    WE MISS YOU!
