I’m looking for motivation and good Spark Friends. I was away from Spark for a long time, but I’m back and enjoying Spark again since January 2019. I need to loose a lot of weight, but most of all - get healthier- move more and make better life-style choices. So, I’m sticking with Spark. I have several chronic medical issues that seem to make me feel ill most days, but I really want to feel better and have more energy. So, I explore natural ways to feel better. I like to spend time with family, cook, sew, embroider or quilt. Our children are in their 20’s and out on their own now. We have one cat, a big floofy boy named Stormy

*Also: to log on several times a day and connect with all of you.

*and to honor God with my thoughts and actions

My Program:
My program is this although I've not been good about sticking to it is
Nutrition- Stage 4
Short term Fitness-
strength train all muscle groups 2 days a week for 15 min,

Achieving this by exercising in home with DVDs, and in the pool and when weather permits walking or cycling around our neighborhood

Other Information:

I have been using essential oils to help with my health issues over the past many months and it really seems to be helping me with my pain, thyroid and sleep issues, just not my weight so much.

    Thanks for telling me about your kitties. You mean your cats allow you to have a dog? lol

    I have 4 cats only. My oldest, Rocky, is a 12 year old rescued Himalayan. He's been cranky from the day I brought him home. Hisses and spits, but is nicer in his old Sammy is a snowshoe Siamese, 8 years old, from a Siamese Cat Rescue. She's afraid and gets spooked very easily. She's my hubby's cat, sleeps with him, etc. No one can pick her up, but she does let me brush her and stroke her....her terms Missy, 6 year old calico, is the boss in this house; the other cats know it. She doesn't like to be picked up or held, but will sit on my lap and purr. Go figure. My baby is Sable (profile pic), 3 years old, and VERY vocal. That cat sure loves to talk...loudly, too!
