I married in 2007 when I was 52 and he was 58; a first time marriage for both of us. In my utter happiness I have gained 30 pounds on an already overweight frame. I want to celebrate a silver anniversary with my husband and that means to take the best care I can of both of us.

Member Since: 1/1/2010

Fitness Minutes: 319

My Goals:
I want to be healthier in mind, spirit, and body.

Mind: Read more – I will listen to a book each month. I will read a book from my library each quarter of the year. I will write a letter to friend, family each week. I will learn to identify a new bird (song and behaviors) each week. Reading inspirational stories daily.

Spirit: Study more – I will read the Bible 15 minutes per day. I will enroll in a Hebrew class. I will attend Sunday church on a regular basis. I will decide on a 2nd home church, St Anne’s being my first home church (I am Protestant; he is Catholic.)

Body: I will participate in an exercise program-tracking progress weekly. I will eat healthy, measure my portions and record my progress. I will plant a garden in the spring and work it daily through the summer.

My Program:
Reading, laughing, fellowshipping, moving, eating, loving, forgiving (myself and others), reframing (words and thoughts) positively.

Personal Information:
I have enjoyed being married these past two years. Amazing how two people so different easily makes one. He is a birder and has lifted my eyes heavenward to see beauty on wings. I am a special education teacher who both loves and is stressed by my job. I commute to work a long way so I seem to collapse into the house each evening. I will definitely need to preplan meals for this very reason. Have you ever noticed how easy foods are high in everything but nutrition? I love being outside, but have found it harder and harder to initially get myself out the door. What a paradox! I am thinking that participation in will change that.

Other Information:
The greatest love of my life is Jesus Christ.

    An Irish Prayer

    May God give you...
    For every storm, a rainbow,
    For every tear, a smile,
    For every care, a promise,
    And a blessing in each trial.
    For every problem life sends,
    A faithful friend to share,
    For every sigh, a sweet song,
    And an answer for each prayer.

    Happy St. Patrick's Day!

    Thank you so much for your kind comments on my blog! Me thinks you might have spoken to my former English Professor!! lol I finally started attending college back in 2006 (made it 3/-1/2 years and was 3 classes from my degree when I had to stop) and fell back in to love with writing in ENG101 & 102. My Professor tried hard to get me to take up writing and encouraged me to send it off for some sort of publication. Maybe yall are right. Thank you so much!!!! You have given just the kind of encouragement I need. And I found your first marriage at 52 a HUGE inspiration! Sending you both blessings for much love, happiness, health & prosperity. Take care, God bless & thank you again!
