I like feeling and looking healthy but don't always like to put in the work. This year - in my mid-50's - I've decided to start putting in the work. This website has really been an inspiration to me. Thanks everyone for all you've said and been doing in your lives. A community that works together, wins together! God bless

Fitness Minutes: 1,200

My Goals:
I've always been an optimist and made the best of anything in life. Life hasn't always been kind to me, but I've learned to forgive and let go of things that are "done." At 57 I consider myself blessed to have a husband who really loves me for who I am, children who love and respect who I am trying to be and healthy enough to attempt it. My two daughters are the two diamonds in my crown and my husband is the crown!

Faith is the way for me ... I am a Christian Catholic who works my faith everyday, prays for a better world, seeks the serenity and peace that only Faith can give. I consider all of you gifts in my life - even though I may never get to know you personally. This program is a blessing in my life today. It cures the loneliness and inspires me to keep working at things that are difficult.


My Program:
SparkPeople gives you all the tools and here's what I use:
Daily food tracking
Drinking 6-8 glasses of water a day
Doing different types of fitness daily - treadmill, hikes, strength and resistance bands, bike, etc.
Spinning for points!

Personal Information:
Married 31 years

Two daughters - 20-25

Started a non-profit to help orphans in Africa in 2003, and opened up a 100% fair trade store - it's all volunteer-run for these 10 years: to donate or just learn about us

Musically trained to lead Church liturgical music programs - guitar, piano, choirs, children, etc.

Other Information:
"I am only one, but I am one and I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do." Everett Hale

"What we give to the poor for Christ's sake is what we carry with us when we die." Peter Maurin

    Thanks for reading and commenting on my blog. You are the only person that has told me they know what I am talking about. Even the doctors did not explain it as well as what I posted from the Mayo Clinic. I definitely decided nothing is worth my health, I have come back from too much to lose ground now.
