May 11, 2019

Originally a Spark member since 2006 I rejoined Spark July 1, 2017 after being away for six years.

In those six years I experienced many firsts: a hip replacement which has been a 100% success and game changer, another grandchild (a very dynamic girl), a new house and neighbourhood, the graduation of my daughter from eleven years of veterinary studies, adoption of a plant based diet and sadly the death of my husband.

I have now been following a vegan diet for over a year; feel well, energetic and now weigh 120 lbs (+ or - 2). Besides maintaining a one acre property by myself I walk an average of 50 miles per week, lift weights, adhere to a core program with stretching and balance work for strength training. My exercise goal is 120+ minutes daily.

GOALS:
Short term: increase amount of weight lifted (2-3X weekly)
Intermediate: walk at least 2500 miles in 2019, as of May 10 at 1255 miles
Long term: plan hiking trip for 2020 and continue downsizing for eventual move to a smaller living situation.

Personal Information:
I'm a farm kid from Alberta, lived in Ontario for 25 years and have now settled in the Gaspereau Valley of Nova Scotia. I have two adult children and two grandchildren. A cat and a rescue pooch keep me company.


Other Information:
I love to garden. Crosswords and reading keep me busy when the snow flies. Cooking is also a delight- I'm always looking for new ideas for vegan meals. I am passionate about diet and exercise and firmly believe that we do have the power to keep ourselves healthy by eating well and being active.
