I love to garden, and am out side on most days when I am not working, in it. I HATE winter!!! LOL

I also need to get my self back on track. some days I'm pretty good other days not so. I have some physical issues, but I am not in pain (thank God) so I am careful of what I can do, mostly low impact things are fine. So there are some things I will not do that cause undo stress on my body. It does not limit me for most part.

I am divorced, I have 4 grown sons. No grands yet. I look after my 84 year old mother. She is still very mobile and on her own. I work full time and part time, and am involved in various thing that keep me busy.

I am forever repairing or replacing things in my 85 year old house! I love to work with my power tools and do repairs around my house. All the doors and windows have been replaced, both baths have been replaced and are fairly new. replaced all flooring. Still needs siding, and walkway replaced.

So now I need to redo this body! So that it will serve me well, for many more years. I have been at it for awhile. I am determined, sometimes just not motivated! I need to do this, for me, because I AM worth it.

My Goals:
I have improved my walking endurance .... I can now walk over 3 miles with out a problem!


My Program:
I joined Jenny Craig a year ago July. I lost about 48 lbs
so far. have been kinda stuck since the holidays. have had some joint health issues, so I have not been able to walk as I had been. Trying to get back into the swing of things, as my knee is feeling better. I am looking forward to summer to be in my garden again. All that yard work and exercise!!
Continue with what I'm doing and also fit more exercise into what i've been doing.



Personal Information:
I live in Illinois, Summer is here and it has been VERY hot and humid! I work outside so I am jut wiped when I get home.

I have 4 boys, am divorced, Work full time at a Driver License facility. I test CDL truck drivers. Have been doing this for about 29 yrs.
have great friends, and a wicked sense of humor, that I do use all the time.


Other Information:
My favorite life quote is BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD. I often do not take the time to be still and listen, to myself, or my body.

PROUDLY AMERICAN!

    Amazon Prime does next day delivery in the UK too. I avoid using them though these days as here in the UK they treat their staff really badly.

    Thank you for commenting on my blog and giving me your thoughts. I know about perception and perspective and I know not everyone has the same. I feel good about my disclaimer and will be more open to whatever comments, now that everyone can know where I come from.
    I appreciate your friendship here.

    Thank you for the comment on my page. I have never been very well versed in the insurance aspect of healthcare and always feel "taken." I don't ever seem to have anything covered with the policies I have. I rarely meet deductibles and end up just having what I would call very expensive doctors appointments because of the money paid for monthly payments for insurance and no payouts or very limited ones. Healthcare was more cost effective before insurance added office visits, at least for me and my family.
