2017-03-31 After another few setbacks and cancer scares, I'm back and more focused than ever on regaining my health, stamina, strength and abilities. I am still reaching for comfort memories and goals: skating at night on the canal, attending dance and music festivals, hiking in the forest, biking on the paths under a full moon along the river...exploring life with confidence instead of caution and fear.

I am restricted to easy exercises for now, until I get back into shape (I use a walker to get around these days, and am starting to use hiking poles). I am so happy to have returned to SparkPeople, with its incredible wealth of resources and support. You are all full of awesome!


Member Since: 9/9/2010

Fitness Minutes: 7,047

My Goals:
I am adopting a healthier lifestyle to rediscover the daring, adventurous person I use to be. I suddenly realized that if I can face cancer three times, I can certainly deal with the 'bonus' of excess poundage it's left me!

* My SP Start Date: Sept 9, 2010
* To feel confident enough in my strength and stamina to resume hiking and biking
* To challenge myself to do one new activity per month
* To generally eat nutritiously, log, and pay attention to how I'm reacting to food (emotionally and physically)


My Program:
@ Jan 2, 2014: Blogged about the 12 things I'm reaching for
* In 2014 - Reading and putting into practice Julia Cameron's "The Writing Diet" (I had put in on hold)
@Dec 20, 2013: recovery from surgery (again)
* Start incorporating gentle exercise
* carbs are not my friends
* sodium is not my friend
* sugar - in any of its forms, natural or not - is not my friend




Personal Information:
I guess these are more like my milestones:
* January 10, 2014 - Doc says no cancer found, only pre-cancerous cells. WooHoo - no treatments required!
* December 6, 2013 - removal of uterus, fallopians, ovaries because of pre-cancerous cells. Not sure if my "cancer free" status starts over now...
* February 13, 2013 - 25th Wedding Anniversary!!!
* December 3, 2012
Two years cancer free (which I count from the end of my last treatment for IBC).
* Nov 25, 2006 - total thyroidectomy, for thyca


Other Information:
You don't drown by falling in the water; you drown by staying there.

All glory comes from daring to begin.

Life tastes better than food.

    Studies show that even ten minutes of brisk exercise triggers metabolic changes that last at least an hour. If you have any questions & need help, don't hesitate to ask!

    So what are you waiting for? Start Streaking emoticon emoticon

    Part of the aspect of the business oppertunity is that it is already flourishing and has new business coming in all of the time. Lots of law-enforment in the area and my husband will have to continue to work(law-enforcement), I would take on-line classes during the hours of 8-5 at the shop while the business is open and break to help customers, take orders, etc....there is a girl who works there already and can work from 10-8, help cover me and keep the shop open the additional hours.

    As far as the other stuff, I am open to doing hourly rates. $10/hr for any and all services to build a clientel. I think the store and hubbies job will maintain us, mine would be for pleasure and helping others!
