If God give us what he thinks we can handle. He must think I'm a BadAss (BadAssMarj.) Hence the BAM.

I live in British Columbia, Canada. I can see the Rocky Mountains from my living room and dining room window. What a beautiful sight.

My journey to inner and external healing.

Scars are beautiful:

People have scars in all sorts of unexpected places. Scars are like secret road maps of our personal history.
My scars are reminders of when life tried to break me, but failed. It only made me stronger.
We can look at scars in two ways, disfiguring or a sign of strength, endurance and survival. We all have scars either on the inside or outside or both.
Scars are a testament of our inner strength. When I look at my scars I see stories that can be told. "Scars are Beautiful. Natural tatoos on our bodies of things beyond our control. Embedded stories etched into our skin of past memories, horrors, regrets, miracles, dreams, and experiences"
Never be ashamed of a scar. It simply means we are stronger than whatever tried to hurt us.
I can say I'm glad to be alive to enjoy this beautiful world and I have also learned to always be in the present.
I can smile at my scars and recognize that I am strong despite of them.......There is "beauty in our scars."


When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill, When the funds are low and the debts are high, And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,When care is pressing you down a bit-Rest if you must, but don't you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,And many a fellow turns about. When he might have won had he stuck it out.Don't give up though the pace seems slow -You may succeed with another blow.
Often the goal is nearer than
It seems to a faint and faltering man;Often the struggle has given up When he might have captured the victor's cup;And he learned too late when the night came down,How close he was to the golden crown.
Success is failure turned inside out -
The silver tint in the clouds of doubt,And you never can tell how close you are,It might be near when it seems afar;So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit -It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.

My Goals:
To lose 15 pounds...I have already lost 5 of those and I'm not going out of my way to look for them.

My Program:
Use the Nutritional Tracker to make sure I stay within my calorie range.
Use the Exercise Tracker to keep track of calories in vs. calories out.
Mindful eating using nutritional foods not processed foods. And most of all mindful of portion control.
I will be using my hula hoop, twist plate, elliptical machine and hand weights as my tools to keeping myself fit and active.

Personal Information:
I'm a senior. Retired and enjoying each day with my wonderful husband of 51 years. I have 2 adult children, 3 grandchildren and 3 grandpuppies.

Other Information:
I like to knit, crochet, do suduko puzzles and games on my ipad when the time allows. I also like canoeing, paddle boarding, snorkeling and spending time with my grown kids and grandchildren at the lake. My husband and I have designed and built two houses and a cabin together. (and we still love each other) LOL
