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!!!!! I have found Walking our beautiful doggie; & hiking in nature is SO fun! I crave it! Also; Sheppard Pilates & Zumba DVD's OR SP Nicole's 12 minute seated core workout; Swimming, I garden in our paradise pool area! Bringing in the fairy's & angels & unicorns! I 'play' in our park, on the swings, in the sprinklers, etc. 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 life is taking a new lovely turn! Chris of Spark People suggests we volunteer! (with the pandemic, I haven't performed since 2-1-2020) As of 2-2018 I am doing that, it is SO special & rewarding, I am performing my marionettes for a local nature center! I love it, so inspiring for me & the amazing audiences! A perfect place for me to grow & focus on goals. They happen about every other month @ my favorite hiking spot using my marionettes to teach about nature! It IS magical! I am so Blessed & grateful for these experiences. I am enjoying watching my life unfold in this way! Meeting new friends & playing with like minded people!

My 'regular' job is helping my DH with his lovely small business. I am learning SO many new things & thrive because of it! His business is BLOOMING!!! Yeah! I love him so much! He is doing much better, as far as walking. Has the perfect PT doctor!

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 SparkPeople & 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 decission, 1 at a time, that creates the out come that is our life. SP has helped me create & share the world I want to live in!



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!

    Tell me more about gathering so much and needing another goal. Anything that moves you along, I think, is of value. Also, the act of creating a Vision Collage (especially images intuitively glued together) begins an inner "visualization" process that moves one in that direction. So, yes, that 10 minutes (even less, if busy) can be powerful!

    Thank you so much for the SparkGoodie. emoticon

    Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read and comment on my blog. I greatly appreciate it.
    Was looking at your wonderful pictures, such great artistic ability. Big fan of Barry Manilow and I love the facial expression you gave him. Great work!
    Continued success on your journey.
    Keep Smiling

    The most unaccepted thing "diet-wise," would be an extended fast. I went on a detox/cleansing fast for 50 days, then after I came off of that, I had done an elimination diet. I am thinking that there is still another allergy and that I would benefit from challenging a couple more things.

    The cleanse allows the body to get rid of excess fluid and inflammation. My body feels so good during a cleanse. I feel like it is my only option left, since nothing else is working. I probably wouldn't do 50 days uninterrupted.

    I looked for a group here, but didn't find one.
