July 2021

I am preparing my Sparkpage to go offline forever. It was a nice run…almost 12 years. I was proud to be a Spark motivator and proud to be selected Spark Spotlight in 2019.
I logged my fitness faithfully all 12 years. I logged my food off and on over the years, always seeing the results.
I lost, at the most, 23 pounds here on Spark. I’ve basically been in maintenance mode since mid 2019.
I will continue my fit lifestyle for as long as I am able. I am having thumb joint replacement surgery (dominant hand first) 2 days after Sparkpeople ends. I’m committed to doing what activities I can until I am healed and rehabbed.

I will miss my Sparkfriends. So very much.
I will private message my contact info to anyone who wants to stay in touch!

Best wishes always.

    Please, be gentle with your body.
    It loves you more than anyone or anything in this world.
    It fixes every cut, every wound, every broken bone, and fights off
    so many illnesses, sometimes without you even knowing about it.
    Even when you punish it, it is still there for you, struggling to keep you alive,
    keeps you breathing. Your body is an ocean full of love.
    So please, be kind to it. It’s doing the very best it can for you.

    We are enjoying the few days of cooler temps. We are have a drought something we have not really have in over a 100 years they are asking to cut our lawn watering to every three days they have posters that say Gold grass saves the Blue and have a huge water drop we can water our gardens normally the city has stopped a lot of the places they water and the state is closing the public camp grounds and hiking areas due to care less people that caused fires last summer. .
