Hi Friends!

I am a Christian (Reformed) seeking to improve my health and grow younger.
The elliptical trainer and treadmill are my friends and God is all sufficient.

January, 2012: Coming soon . . . . . . . . goal setting!!

Member Since: 1/5/2007

Fitness Minutes: 7,815

My Goals:
To let God lead.

To become stronger in Spirit, Soul, and Body. (Daily endeavor)

To lose 10 pounds.

To lose 20 pounds (get back into some of my clothes)

To lose 30 pounds.
Oct. . . . .

To lose 40 pounds.(Get NEW clothes sizes. (WooHoo))

We'll see how I look and feel when I reach the 130 mark if it is "right".

My Program:
My husband and I go to the Y together,....... sometimes.

Eating in the lower calorie ranges and higher protein than the "pie" chart.

As I increase my exercise, I increase my calories. Still losing so far.

Personal Information:
I am 5' 2" and something tall.
I am 50+, married to a Hoosier, (Notre Dame fan).

I like Socal perfume/cologne from Hollister.

I like to read Puritan paperbacks and Banner of Truth publications.

I have an active part-time job, cleaning rental houses at Gulf Shores, (for Halekai Family Vacations, on the web). It's only seasonal and becomes sporadic after school starts.

I have a new job starting the first week of September at the Y, so I will probably be getting in more workouts.

Other Information:
I am a PW, (preacher's wife). I enjoy it, but sometimes so many activities take over my life and I don't get to the gym for days. This has got to change.
CHANGED: I work there.

    “I will stand on my guard post and station myself on the rampart; and I will keep watch to see what He will speak to me, and how I may reply when I am reproved.” – Habakkuk 2:1

    I am thinking of and praying for you today, my friend. God knows the way in which you should go in your journey. Keep watching and listening for Him who faithfully proclaims in our ear, “This is the way, walk in it” (Isaiah 30:21).

    Thank you for being my friend and walking with me on this journey. “The Lord bless you and watch, guard, and keep you; The Lord make His face to shine upon and enlighten you and be gracious (kind, merciful, and giving favor) to you; The Lord lift up His [approving] countenance upon you and give you peace (tranquility of heart and life continually)” (Numbers 6:22-27, AMP). emoticon

    In Memory of Unstoppable Teresa who went to be with our Lord this past week, we celebrate her life this 20th day of September by sharing jokes on our blogs in her honor and by passing on some of her beautiful computer art work and encouraging words to those on our friend list. I pray as we remember Teresa today that we also realize the beautiful gift we have in finding good friends to walk this journey with here on Spark. Our friendship being in the cyber-world does not make it less significant than those closest to our faces. Have a blessed, memorable day that makes you one to remember when eternity calls you home.

    ✫ .HAPPY NEW YEAR 2012✫
    We spend January 1 walking through our lives, room by room,
    drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched.
    Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through
    the rooms of our lives... not looking for flaws, but for potential.
