I had something really neat happen to me recently! My gym asked if I would be in their fitness column in our base newspaper (NAS Corpus Christi). I am sooo honored. It really meant a lot to me. ❤️ inspire and be inspired.

January 2019

Hi Sparkfriends! Welcome!

I’ve been on Sparkpeople for over 9 years now. I'm almost 51 years old. Like many of you, I have been through wildly varying health stages through out my lifetime. I've been average, I've been heavy, and I've been underweight. I've been a size 16. I've been a size 0, and everything in between. I used to be a chain smoker, and also very ill with respiratory issues.

Not anymore. I am now a runner. I am a lifter. I am becoming a rider. I am a 9+ year non smoker.

Today, I would describe myself as a fit athlete. I have a much different body composition from what I had from any other time in my life and I credit it to consistent lifting and fine tuning nutrition.

I share because I want to inspire others to believe they can do anything they put their mind to. It’s never to late to dream a new dream.

Keep Sparking!

    Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate;
    The first one said, "Oh my it's getting late".
    The second one said, "There are witches in the air".
    The third one said, "But they might be scary"
    The fourth one said, "I'm ready for some fun!"
    The fifth one said, "Let's run and run and run"
    "Wooooooo" went the wind,And out went the lights.
    And the five little pumpkins rolled out of sight.
    """""Enjoy this day with all your might"""""
    Remove the pumpkin cover, shouting out, "Oh me or my!!"
    And out jumps lots of emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
