Hi, welcome to my sparks page. It is like me, a work in progress. I am 69, a widow, a grandmother and great grandmother. I have been retired since 2003 and enjoy every minute of it. I now wonder how I had time to go to work! I love animals, crafting, sewing, travelling, swimming, and visiting friends and family.

I live on Vancouver Island. We enjoy the most moderate climate in all of Canada.

Member Since: 6/19/2009

Fitness Minutes: 11,785

My Goals:
My goals are to attain a healthy and active lifestyle that will enable me to feel good about myself, control my blood sugars and to just plain feel well again.

My Program:
I started in March of this year with going to water therapy. I had been sick all winter and didn't know what was going on but I knew if I didn't get this carcuss moving I would not be here to enjoy my grandchildren for much longer. I also decided to go to my family doctor and find out what on earth was going on. It turned out everything was normal except for my glucose levels were elevated. I was so thankful that I had already started an exercise plan and was going to plan on implementing a healthier eating pattern. I still have not been diagnosed with diabetes, yet, but I know it's coming down the pipe. So along with my three times a week water therapy and now calorie counting I will be successful in feeling better.

Personal Information:
I am from Duncan, BC on Vancouver Island. I am 69, a widow, grandmother and great grandmother. I retired as in 2003 and enjoy every minute of it. Now where did I find the time to go to work?

Other Information:
I like to craft, sew, swim, camp, travel, visit with family and friends, horses and cats, heck I like all animals!

    Hi there, how are you doing? Was the long weekend good for you? I've been away from the computer so other than quick blurbs in my blog haven't been active on Spark.
