Hi....I live in Minnesota. It's winter and cold. Lots of shoveling so I need my back to be strong. I love to walk which is impossible with all the ice. Motivating myself to work out at home is tough sometimes. That is the reason I thought I'd try SparkPeople. I love to eat which means a work out everyday if I can.
I also need to motivate myself to paint. I've put aside my brushes and paint and fill my spare time with books. It's time to start working again.
I have two sons one is 26 and lives in Ill. a software engineer and the other (24) lives on St. Paul Island in the Bering Sea. He is the police for 500 Alueits that live there. I'm married to a great guy who makes me feel very loved. Gardening is my passion.
Notes from the book A Course In Love:
Pray for miracles .
You aren’t here to do good works- you are here to have a relationship with God.

Choice: to be one with God or separate. Know yourself as God created you. God is within you. You can’t know others if you don’t know yourself. Dwell with God within you.

We are all different bottles, but have the same fine wine within us.

Seekers seek & never stop. There is always more to seek. It’s sometimes better to realize and be thankful for what you have found.

Through Christ you get to heaven – the Holy Spirit is a guide. Recognize the Christ in you.

When you see others through the eyes of ego, you view their form. When you quit seeing with ego’s eyes you view content.

A choice for love creates love. A choice for fear creates fear.

Love is not something you do – it’s what you are.

We think our life has a purpose – few people think they will be successful.

Ego takes pride in what the mind has acquired. It pats you on the back for your new achievements.

What you want to learn you can not fail to learn.

Jesus gave a face to love, as you do here on earth as well.

As you read, be aware of your heart. This is where learning enters & stops.

Separation is all you perceive on your own. Union is all that you invite Jesus into & share with God. Your invitation is necessary for your awareness of this presence.

Forgive reality for being what it is.

Without judgment…peace shines on every situation you face.

What you give, you receive. What you do not receive is a measure of what you withhold.

Your giving of yourself must be total for you to receive. What you have that separates you the most is that which you value most highly. ( Remember what Jesus told Nichodemus)

Don’t hold a grudge. The grudge will hold you.

My Goals:
To pray and meditate every day. To begin painting again.
To do good deads.
To read something good for the soul along with fiction that I love. To control my eatting and work out when I can.
To lose 5 lbs in the process.

My Program:
Eat protein and light morning and lunch. Work out at least 4x's a week. Give up sugar.
Work out with my Gilad fat burning tape and every other day use the Nordic trac for 3 miles.

Now I lay me
Down to sleep.
I pray the Lord
My shape to keep.
Please no wrinkles
Please no bags
And please lift my b u t t
Before it sags.
Please no age spots
Please no gray
And as for my belly,
Please take it away.
Please keep me healthy
Please keep me young,
And thank you Dear Lord
For all that you've done.

Foot Note:
One saggy boob said to the other saggy boob:
"If we don't get some support soon, people will think we're nuts."

Personal Information:
I volunteer at the hospital, library and church. I love God and try to see God in others. (Not always successful.) I try to be positive and kind. Although I want to be something more than kind. I want to be a good friend.

This Time..........
Another diet we're about to endure,
but this time we'll do it, of that we are sure.
We've tried all the others without much success,
but this is the one to get into THAT dress!

For years we've tried hard to lose excess weight,
and we now have the answer to looking just great.
For us no more 'chips' or 'Big Mac' on a whim,
we want to look good and we'd love to be slim.

Other Information:
Irish blessing:
May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world
with joy that long endures.
May all life's passing seasons
bring the best to you and yours!

    Hi Nancy, thanks for stopping by and checking out my paintings. Yes the one with the loons is acrylic. I painted that for my transplant doctor and it was quite large. Sorry for the smaller picture but had to take a photo and scan since the painting was large. Judi Pearl
