Weight has always been a battle for me and Spark has been a helpful place to keep me focused on my health journey. It does help having others who truly understand how hard this really can be and I love my SP teams and friends!

Member Since: 3/20/2008

Fitness Minutes: 93,497

My Goals:
5% Challenge: Make the 5% mark during the fall challenge!

My Program:
Fitness at home. (Body weight strength/core. Wii Fit. Cardio.... still working on this due to knee injury.)

Nutrition: Working towards "clean" eating the majority of the time. Current nutritional change that is needed is: *Dr. Pepper has to go!

*build some "me time" into things (reading, cross-stitch, an evening out...)

*personal bible study time

Personal Information:
A 58 year old stay-at-home mom to two teenagers (Daughter is 17 and son is 15) and have been married to my hubby for 37 years as of 10/9/19. My son has autism so I spend lots of time advocating for him with teachers at school. My daughter is attending Cosmetology school and will graduate the end of February 2020. She will be 18 about the same time.
She's Changes! I am no longer homeschooling my son as he wants to go to high school. That is complicated by his autism so I know I'll be spending time with the special needs staff. Daughter is a high school graduate and working 20-30/hours a week.

I also work from home part-time as a Support Broker. This means I support families with their documentation and budget monitoring for the funds qualified for through Health & Welfare to assist their special needs.

I am a Wellness Advocate for doTerra Essential Oils. I am a casual sharer...not currently out there pushing the business side!

    Hi Janet, Happy Valentines day!

    Sorry it took me so long to respond back. I have been on spark but have not checked my webpage much. It is hard to believe it is almost been a year on spark. I really liked your goals, the main thing is that we have not gained the weight since we started, and we just keep plugging along.

    Bless you my friend

    Thanks for all the spark goodies. I am not sure what is up with my page. Last week it showed only one goodie, now I have to go add them to the page or they are in the folder, but don't show up. If I can't figure it out soon, I'll contact tech support in my spare time.

    thanks again. LOVE THEM!

    Thanks for dropping in and the "goodie attempt". Sound like my Oh that's good/ No that's (see blog) even got in your way. Have a great one.
