To say I am sorry SP is closing is an understatement! After going through MANY emotions, I have decided I am treating it like graduation. I've been on Sparks for 9.5 years. (as of 6-18-21 3,381 days) I KNOW how to take care of myself. I am grateful to Chris for giving us a place to feel & be 'safe' on this journey. I have many projects I can not afford to continue, so I don't blame him for having to change. I feel it is now up to me & I am running with it. I will miss being able to visit the 'community', that is why I am still here. PLEASE KNOW, I am thankful to all of you who 'played' with me on this journey! YOU are the best. Maybe we will meet in another way, another day. I am not on FB & don't plan on joining a new group.It will be kind of a relief not to log in everyday. I can go camping again, not worrying about internet access! LOL! I'll be here till they close! Then, as the song says: "Schools Out For Summer!"

I am a 3rd generation performing marionette artist. I am learning to live life to it's fullest, no matter what comes my way. My childhood sweetheart & I are still loving each other & the world, since High school! I am Blessed!!!!! My body now REQUIRES movement! I try for 200 exercise minutes, daily AND 200 Spark points. I am a better performer because of Spark People! I thank God, the Angels, AND Spark People, daily for my amazing life! My new quote: "BE THE HEALTH YOU WANT WITH WHAT YOU HAVE TO WORK WITH, & I WILL, TOO!" My new song: GOOD VIBRATIONS, by the Beach Boys. Helps me when I'm 'down'.

My 'regular' job is helping my DH with his small business & our health. I am learning SO many new things & thrive because of it! His business is BLOOMING!!! Yeah! I love him so much!

Fitness Minutes: 377,981

My Goals:
I reached my goal weight (3-16-2013 1 year exactly since I joined SP)! NOW, I am learning how maintain my weight & (almost) doing it, with Spark People!! I am stronger & more vibrant! I am thriving & Chris Downie is helping me be my most beautiful, healthiest, energized, whole self! I want to continue to learn to maintain my weight AND my health, easily & with lot's of FUN!! I choose to be an example of what good health looks like! I have been yo-yoing with about 20# now for almost 3 years, I am sort of ok with it & once I am not, I KNOW I will get back to goal & stay there! As of 3-16-21 (my 9th SPaversary, I am reignited!) But I am SO healthy & confident, I am jumping for joy!


My Program:
Following my own inner good judgement! I have learned to keep my healthy lifestyle, together, EVEN under the MOST stress! I love moving & creating fun & joy where ever I go! Green drinks & energizing foods! I find stress happens in our worlds, all the time. It appears when we least expect it! It is how we handle every single decision, 1 at a time, that creates the out come that is our life.



Personal Information:
I am SO blessed to be alive & living in a world with my Spiritual support, DH, my family & friends & my Sparkling friends! I am still Sparking to help support other "Sparkers"! I have found my healing, physically, spiritually & emotionally, here & want to share it with you, if I can! SP is my ONLY social network. Being an example is the ONLY way I can help anyone, else! It is up to each of us to find our own way. SP offers us the tools! Choose what works for you & share your findings with the world!

Happy, healthy life everyone! Together we can do ANYTHING!!!!

    If every morning, You can find a reason to say,
    “Yes, it’s going to be a beautiful day.”
    And every day, you find a reason to say,
    “Yes, it is a beautiful day.”
    And every night, you find a reason to say,
    “Yes, it was a beautiful day.”
    Then one day, You’ll look back and easily say,
    “Yes...it was a beautiful life.”
