Living in Florida...grateful, homesick.... striving to "recover" or grow into many parts of myself, my life, my joy, my blessings. Overeating and weight challenges are a part of my story. I'm here to pay attention, to heal and to commit to loving myself and others more fully. . . . to participate and celebrate my and others successes!

Member Since: 3/10/2017

Fitness Minutes: 917

My Goals:
In terms of my weight and fitness goals. . . . . To be healthier physically, mentally and spiritually. What that means is: practice getting six to eight hours of sleep, eating 3 meals a day plus a healthy snack, physically sitting/kneeling for daily prayer, participate in physical activity 3 to 5 days a week. That activity could be running, biking and lifting weights. I also benefit from doing yoga as and calming practice.

My Program:
My program includes inviting peers to join me at the gym after work. Running along the bayshore watching for dolphins. Getting into the habit of going outdoors . . . . fishing, kyaking, movies in the park, hiking.. . .

Personal Information:
I've stuggled with addiction for a long time and I've never given up the fight. I don't plan to. I'm the most tenatious person I know actually. I've overcome childhood alcoholism (25 years), 3 packs a day cigarette habit (22 years). I paid my way through college. I recently got my master's degree! I've moved around the country as I felt God calling me. Oh, and, I've surrendered my life to God - even though I still put up a bit of a battle when it feels like too much. God always wins - thank goodness! I pray to continue to surrender any resistance I have to being my best self. I pray for continued good health.

Other Information:
I mostly identify myself as a devoting, loving, accepting mother to three adult children, grandmother to three girls; 19, 1.5 years and 6 months. I am a devoted loving wife (20 years) who is mostly accepting but, unfortunately, sometimes judgmental or critical also. (another area I pray to be surrender)

    Bumped into your blog today--as your son's Do Overs really interested me as I glanced down the recently blog entries list today. It always amazes me, in some type of affirmation of sorts, how many times I discover someone so likeable and so "like me" as I saw in your blog post this morning, that I also find one or more of the SparkPeople friends I have are already friends with you! WOW! So neat how that works out....
