Apparently I first tried Spark People back in 2013. Obviously I did not do much. I used to spend most of my time in the Spark Recipes which is not a bad thing. I made many of the delicious meals for myself and my husband. I was loosing weight until I had a hernia repair. My exercise consisted of my job. I was a computer tech for University Hospitals of Cleveland. I was the sole tech for Seidman Cancer center and 7 other buildings on the campus. Talk about a lot of walking !! The weight stated to come off again.....then 2015 came about and so did my broken hip. I could not do any weight bearing for 3 months. Since I was not cleared for work, I stayed at home in my recliner reading a copious amounts of library books. Once back to work I was not able to get the weight off. I am a severe asthmatic and have degenerative osteoarthritis in my lower spine. So, for now my exercise is walking.
I have had three careers in my life, 22 years of being a Registered Nurse in Critical Care Units, 10 years in retail, and 6 years as a computer tech.
I am married 13 years to my current husband. I have three grown children and my husband has a grown son, Together we have 4 grandchildren with one on the way.

Update 3/29/19

All is not lost that I lost my Silver Sneakers at the beginning of the year. I did some research. Found that the Y would cost me $22.00/month. Ha....not in my budget. So, I went to my community senior center. I joined for $5.00/year. I get to do free exercise classes three days a week and Senior Zumba one day a week. In addition, I get to use the exercise room for free. I'm loving it !!!!

    It's Friday, and time for some laughs. Lately, the Friday Just for Giggles have become quite a big dill around here, but I doughnut want to taco 'bout it. However, I yam relishing the positive feedback, and I'd give a penne for your thoughts. . .

    I hope you find these puns quite a-peeling because they are all "injest".

    I've started investing in stocks: beef, chicken, and vegetable.
    One day I hope to become a builloinaire.

    I'd love to be shipwrecked on a dessert island.

    Heinz recently improved the taste of its tomato sauce.
    The rest of the food manufacturers were left to ketchup.

    I knock on the door of the refrigerator before I open it; just in case the salad's dressing.

    I was going to share another vegetable pun, but it was too corny.

    And last, but not yeast . . .

    Green vegetables give me gas. We're talkin' kale force winds.

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
