I’m looking for motivation and good Spark Friends. I was away from Spark for a long time, but I’m back and enjoying Spark again since January 2019. I need to loose a lot of weight, but most of all - get healthier- move more and make better life-style choices. So, I’m sticking with Spark. I have several chronic medical issues that seem to make me feel ill most days, but I really want to feel better and have more energy. So, I explore natural ways to feel better. I like to spend time with family, cook, sew, embroider or quilt. Our children are in their 20’s and out on their own now. We have one cat, a big floofy boy named Stormy

My Goals:
To change myself to the size God wants me to be.
To attain my short term goals, then mid term and then my long term goals.
*Also: to log on several times a day and connect with all of you.
*and to make my self a better person inside and out.
*and to honor God with my thoughts and actions


My Program:
My program is this although I've not been good about sticking to it is
Nutrition- Stage 4
Short term Fitness-
strength train all muscle groups 2 days a week for 15 min,
Cardio 3 days a week for 15 min.
Achieving this by exercising in home with DVDs, and in the pool and when weather permits walking or cycling around our neighborhood



Personal Information:
I am a Christian, married 26 years, children ages 22 and 19 at home, plus 3 cats.

Originally from MA + NY states.
I like to read, play a couple games on the computer and catch up with my spark, facebook and essential oil friends.


Other Information:
I do love to laugh-
funny movies, jokes, even laughing at my self.
I have been using essential oils to help with my health issues over the past many months and it really seems to be helping me with my pain, thyroid and sleep issues, just not my weight so much.
I am an active member of WOW= Women of the Word (at my church).

    You asked for suggestions about adopting a new cat.. (Since I am the administrator for Crazy About Cats, I sincerely hope I sent you a sympathy goodie for your loss of Stormy. If I did not PLEASE accept my condolences on behalf of the group and most of all from me personally).

    Are you driving to visit your family? Is it possible you could transport a new cat and that your family would accommodate the needs of a new cat?

    It might be best to wait awhile longer until you return from the visit. Cats are susceptible to contracting the virus from people, so you might want to wait quite awhile until you are sure your new cat would not have to struggle with a possibly quarantined owner, This is something I am struggling with, as my veterinarian is currently not accepting boarding and I don't have anyone I could trust to look after my cat if i became ill, since most veterinarians are recommending owners separate from their pets in the event that they become sick. I can not possibly separate myself from my cat in my small apartment, it just wouldn't work. I am really distressed that I might put my cat a risk if I became ill.

    It's really all up to you I know how hard it is to be without a cat. Good luck, I am sure you will make the best decision.
