I'm ready for a new journey. One that includes getting fit and healthy..... Zumba is my new favorite calorie burner. I have lots of reasons to get healthy but my main reason is to get rid of Diabetes. I hate it with all of my being. If I can help one person from getting this horrid disease from helping them workout, talking to them, cheering them on, I will. I will never go back to the old me, I will be what I was born to be. One of my favorite new quotes I found on Spark is "The girl in last place is the one sitting on the couch." My other ones I found thru prayer was "He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. 31 but those who hope in the Lord will renew thier strength. They will soar on wings like eagles, run and not grow weary, walk and not faint." Isaiah 40:29 & 31.

Taking it to a new level and enjoying every step along the way! Anybody who needs encouragement with their diabetes, I am on a mission and would be glad to help, just let me know!!!!

O, my twin and I are going to train to be able to run at least 4 5k's next year and get healthy together! I also love hiking, walking and designing jewelry!

    Yes mam, your one of my picks! "Beautiful Woman Award! Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out"

    I saw that you were from Oklahoma... more so, Deer Creek/Edmond area. My oldest attends Edmond North HS.

    I now live in Guthrie (& really do NOT care for their schools). emoticon

    Any way... if you would like a walking buddy, or zumba buddy (I have never done zumba but looks fun).. let me know emoticon

    I have about 80 lbs to loose, so the more help the better!!

    Teacher, cool, I would love to be a teacher some day...LOL.

    Many a day, I am a day care worker, babysitter, DI, behavioral specialist for pre-teens and early teens. I work at a middle school, and once in a rare moment I get to teach math. Ha Ha.

    Seriously, It ain't all that bad, if I eat barbed wire and drink napalm instead of OJ for breakfast. That way I come into class spitting BB's and breathing fire.

    Have a great SPARK day, thar,

    I am OKified and got a bit of country boy in me too, now.

    I was born Robert Andrew up in MA, but go by Bobby Drew now in dem der dese parts. emoticon
