Good Morning!
How on earth did I get here - retirement at the end of November will be my new life. As someone who identifies herself with my job and career, this will be a significant change.

As I prepare for this new life, I want to be conscious of the foods I bring into my home and my body.
In addition to working with my trainer to resolve a back issue, I will add more steps to my day to supplement the weight training.
I will be kind to myself and others.
I will be positive and encouraging.
I will be wise with my time and resources.
I will be open to new experiences and possibilities.
I will finish projects at home that are incomplete.
I will continue to declutter my body and my life, including my closets!
I will use Spark People to chart my progress. There have been too many gaps in my participation here.

The time is now to get real, otherwise the remaining years won't have much "life" about them.

    Hi Ellen!! Oh my goodness, how are you doing? What have you been up to? Thank you for stopping by my page. Welcome back! emoticon
    I'm still plugging along. I haven't been running as much as I used to, as I am doing mostly strength training now. I've been logging all of my food for almost 3 months also. Just made it a habit.
    I've always loved it here on Spark. They have made some changes I am still trying to get used to, but the great tools are still at our disposal.
    Let's keep in touch! I am here to root you on!
