Welcome to my Spark page!

I havenot been here for awhile. The past year was one of pain. Finally had hip replacement surgery on 12/8/2011 I hope that I can move on and meet some of my goals:

Lose weight.
Live in the moment.
Enjoy every day.
Appreciate and enhance my overall health.
Help spread the universal love that is God within us.
Move the body, even when it resists.
Reduce Reuse and Recycle
Think before I eat.

Upload new pictures!

My Goals:
I would like to share with all who visit here my goal of improving the quality of the remaining years of my life. Be it 50 or 5, I hope to live them in the fitest state I can achieve.

I share this and invite you to make it one of yours as well

I want to lose this weight I have been carrying around with me for far too long.

I want to wear a dress I bought before I started to gain and never wore....

I want to be able to ride my bike up hill.

I want to be around to see electric or compressed air cars the norm on our roads.


My Program:
Walk at least 1 mile a day. Staying within my calorie range and tracking every thing I can that goes into my mouth. Drinking water! Using muscles I do not know I have.
Walking when I can.



Personal Information:
I am a transplant from Chicago to sunny southern California. God has blessed me with a husband I love and two children I love who are now grown and contributing members of society. I retired from teaching for a salary, but I think I will be a teacher until I die.


Other Information:
Crocheting, needlework,reading,
playing and walking my granddog are all favorite activities. Jane Austen is my favorite fiction writer, Shel Silverstein and ee.cummings are two of my favorite poets. I have discovered the writings of Fr. Thomas Keating. I enjoy his work a lot. I just found some delightful mysteries and am devouring them as fast as I can get my hands on them...they have recipes in them!

    we didn't even eat a bundtinis worth, I think it was more like 450 all together... hope you feel less pain now! I love you, gonna try to sleep soon, if you talk to Dan mention that I was up for nearly 24 hours, and maybe he can make better use of his morning than waiting for me to rise!

    Yes, thank you I'm finally feeling a little better today. I'm not sneezing anymore. I think it's because we finally got the tree out of the living room yesterday. I think it was adding to my problems. I told John that next year a lot less dinner parties and parties for the children. I got to run down. Now back to losing weight for the new year. I see we are at the same weight, I want to see that 180 mark soon. : ) emoticon
