January 01, 2020 - Is this the year magic will happen? It won't happen unless I make it happen! One is not suppose to give up. You just pick yourself up and brush yourself off and try again. Late 2017 I started watching Food Documentaries. They did motivate and inspire me and I managed to get to ONEDERLAND.

I do encourage all my SparkFriends to watch a few of the Food Doc's. There are quite a few of them out there. I don't know how anyone can watch these Food Doc's without wanting to make better food choices, not just for themselves but their whole families. I definitely will be eating more freggies.

I am starting 2020 with BLC42 Camo Crew and The 2020 Winter 5% Awesome "A" Team.
I will continue my FitBit Challenges with FitBit and SP friends. I will also continue my virtual walks at I am going to try to make use of the Food and Exercise Trackers too.

Personal Information:
I live in SW Florida. I love the idea of being able to exercise 12 months out of the year without the expense of a health club.
I am from MN originally. I do not miss the snow and cold winters. I do miss my family.

He is great company for me. We bike and go shopping together often. Sometimes he even decides to do a little entertaining, which is always fun to watch.

    Hi Ma!

    I haven't forgot you. Just been overwhelmed and took a detour.

    Awww Ma!! The feet huh? They are a MESS!! And as we saw in the Summer Challenge I broke the funny looking one, but it's healed!! WOOHOO!! I had walked to much, to fast, so now I am SLOWLY building up my walking by taking smaller walks, and when it's stressed, doing less.

    How are you holding up?

    I have a SPECIAL REQUEST of you Ma.

    PLEASE DO NOT SEND UP THE WARM WEATHER Towards Maine. Hehehehe!! I LOVE Snow and last night we got warm air from the south and had RAIN!! Than at the very end it turned to snow, ICE!!! I went to meeting this AM, and the parking lot was SHEER ICE!! The ice was unexpected so it hadn't been sanded yet. It was so cool that they had the young men out in the parking lot to assist us!! The one who did me, he's known me for an EON of years. He knows I have feet issues, but when I told him I can't feel my feet (neuropathy) and I just put them down, and hope they land right, his face was PRICELESS!! LOL than I told him the right one is a size 8 1/2 but the left one a size 4. Well we got a joking around "I am half right"
