Hello! My name is Karla. I am 52 years old. I have one daughter, Ariel who is 23 and married to Ben. They live in Louisiana because he got a job at the Army base in Leesville as an air traffic controller. Ariel goes to college online and takes care of their two dogs. I miss her very much. I have been married three, almost four years, to my wonderful husband Rob. He is a hard worker, great cook and all around handyman. He is also my biggest cheerleader. We live with and take care of my father, Mike, since he was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. We see to his day to day needs and make sure he gets to go out a couple days a week to an adult day care which gives us all a break from each other. I get paid a few hours a week to work at home taking care of him. It's hard to get out and do much because we do not have a vehicle right now and we have to rely on others to get a ride where we need to go. We are also on a limited budget which makes it hard to follow a healthy meal plan (meaning enough fruits and vegetables) at times, but we do the best we can. We all have health issues we have to take care of. For instance, my father has diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart issues and of course Alzheimer's; Rob has extreme high blood pressure, vein disease, diabetes, heart problems, neuropathy, and deafness in one ear. They could start their own pharmacy with the amount of medicine they have to take. I have high cholesterol, diabetes and am starting to go through menopause. The main reason I joined is to learn to live a healthier life so I can not only avoid having to be put on ore meds but eventually I want to get off what I am now taking. I am looking forward to the journey ahead with some trepidation but also some excitement to see what God has in store for me this year.

I love cats and we currently have 4 upstairs cats, 3 downstairs/basement cats (which are my daughters) and several outside/half feral cats that we feed. With all the cats we have no rodent problems. We are also taking care of my daughter's dog until they move somewhere with space for her.

    Looking for a Fun Challenge this Summer? Want to get connected with a Team to support you through your Journey to a Healthier Lifestyle. If yes, then consider joining the BL Challenge that starts early June. Each week 11 teams of 24 Active, do fun nutritional and fitness challenges. The challenges promote a healthy lifestyle and If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meet your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For Spring we had Gardening Time, Help Fill Peter Rabbit’s Basket and Bingo. If you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Summer challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the “BLUE BIGGEST LOSER” Icon, or copy and paste the link below, or let me know and I can send you an invite. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Frosted Fitness Fun Chit Chat.
