Hi! Welcome to my page!

A little about me.....

I'm here on SP to learn to take better care of my body. I am not always so good at that! I am Type 2 Diabetic, and really need to take better care of myself. So, I am here to learn, and to practice, healthy habits.

One habit that I am already pretty consistent with is exercise. I workout almost every day. Nothing spectacular really. Just 30 to 45 minutes a day. I have to admit, I don't push myself to the limit, but I am currently satisfied with what I'm doing. Something is better than nothing, right?

I also want to mention I am supremely blessed. The Creator of the Universe has given me a wonderful life. I am grateful for all I have, and look forward to getting better at taking care of myself.

So, that's it for now! I hope you have a fabulous day! Stop by anytime you want! I'll keep the coffee brewin' and we can sit and chat! ;)

    Hi. If you want/need a little push...consider joining us for an 8 week challenge. Why not join the X-WEIGHTED CHALLENGE? We're all ages, all fitness levels, all striving to live a healthier life. There is always something to learn from each other. These teams are also a great source of motivation! We can become healthier by working together and making new friends as we go. We compete in weekly nutrition and fitness challenges. It is similar to the Biggest Loser team. There are 3 teams that compete within the X-Weighted team. We do ATC (All Teams Challenge) various challenges (nutrition, fitness etc.) The main requirement is to post your weight weekly. The ATC challenges and/if individual teams have challenges are optional (however, very beneficial). If you have any questions, please let me know.
