I am 36 years old and happily live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Growing up I was always athletic and very involved with Ukrainian Dancing, biking, swimming and only ate home cooked meals. After I got married in 2006 I went through some internal struggles. Depression, anxiety and a general feeling of loss and loneliness took over my life. Due to previous injuries I stopped all exercise and fun. Meals became fast food almost every night and things began to spiral out of control for me. I was on SPARK for a while before but because I wasn''t focused, I never took responsibility for my own actions and I never understood who or where I was in life. Things got much better in my life for awhile, then the depression and anxiety came back big time in 2017. After years of not feeling good, being in pain and the mental issues I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in early 2018. Now I am on a new life journey/ I need to find what I can do to help myself through this, what my new goals are and how I can move forward. But I am here to win it!

    Thanks for the blog comment. I have really struggled the past couple of years with the 'how far I've fallen' feeling. Getting over yourself and taking care of business is really a hard thing to do, but it is so worth it to try!

    Pickleball is like mini tennis played with paddles and plastic balls on a smaller court. Lots of fun! You should try it. I'm going to blog about it soon. emoticon

    Hello! I just saw that you had read Louis Penny's novel for the Bookworm challenge. I just found her last year and absolutely devoured all the Chief Inspector Gamache novels! There is a new one slated to come out in August. Hip-hip-hooray!
    Happy reading!
