Me playing my fiddle. My hair is cut short now. I'm only an OK fiddler, but I have fun. :-)

Hi. :-)

I'm 58. I weigh 188.5lbs. I'm 5'1". I'm a homemaker who is trying to get a novel written. My favorite things to do (since I was in late elementary school) are all sit down things but I didn't start getting fat until my early 20s. I don't have a favorite sport except fencing and it's hard to find anywhere to fence. I don't have a favorite exercise although I do enjoy Wii Fit Plus bicycling. I tolerate doing Leslie Sansone's DVDs.

I have battled depression and negativity all my life and that just makes doing this all the more difficult. I joined a little over a year ago and left because I wasn't getting anywhere. This time I can't seem to even get started. I HAVE TO LOSE WEIGHT & GET IN BETTER SHAPE!! But every time I get on here I get stressed out and depressed.

Keep me in thought and prayer if you are willing to.

My Goals:
I'm so afraid of setting goals. More often than not they end up being symbols of my failure as opposed to being markers of success.

I want to finish my mystery novel and try to get it published.

I want to lose weight and be in better shape, but I don't like thinking of it as "living a healthy lifestyle" for some reason. It sounds cheesy to me.


My Program:
I don't know what I'm doing as my "program" other than trying to hang around here, do the SparkCoach stuff and hope something starts to get through to me.



Personal Information:
I'm in Central Illinois.

Most of the things I enjoy most in life are things you do sitting down. I didn't choose them for that reason at all - it just worked out that those are the things I like.

Reading, writing, arts & crafts, watching some TV or movies.


Other Information:
My favorite book (since 1966) is "Lord of the Rings". I have a tattoo of J.R.R.Tolkien's monogram on my left ankle.

    "Whenever you make a mistake or get knocked down by life, don't look back at it too long.
    Mistakes are life's way of teaching you. Your capacity for occasional blunders is inseparable from your capacity to reach your goals.
    No one wins them all, and your failures, when they happen, are just part of your growth. Shake off your blunders.
    How will you know your limits without an occasional failure? Never quit. Your turn will come."
    -Og Mandino

    Wishing you a great day of progress, Sparkfriend! Remember, you don't have to be perfect....just do your best, and start over as many times as you need to. As long as you never quit, you will make progress!
    Hugs,

    "You are destined to SUCCEED! We all have a crisis of confidence now and then.
    But within each of us is a voice that whispers,"You can do it."
    The more we listen, the louder and clearer it will become.
    Deep down inside, you know you've got what it takes to achieve whatever you set your mind to.
    So instead of ignoring that little voice, turn up the volume!"

    TGIF, Sparkfriend! Have a healthy day, and remember that yes, you CAN achieve your goals, one step at a time, one day at a time. Don't be scared to put in that effort...you're worth it!
    Hugs,
    Pixie
