This is how we rolled

This is our family, I am guessing about 1970.

That's me on the far left..yellow wind breaker
 and very cool knee socks. 😏

Those were days. Dad, Mom and all five of us kids 
going places in that red station wagon. 
Great memories, especially sitting
 in the rear facing back seat goofing off with my sister. 

Funny this showed up on Facebook yesterday!

Police bring awareness to domestic violence

I saw this inspiring story on our local new this evening.

If you are in an abusive relationship, remember:
1. You are not alone. 
2. It is NOT your fault.
3. Help is available.

Non-Toxic Life

A new year, new possibilities! 
I am starting this new year with plans and goals of
making my life non-toxic in all areas.  
Mentally, spiritually, physically and in our home.  

I may be 60 years old but I know this...

We all know people who are toxic, they may even be a family member.  
Toxic relationships affect our mental and physical well being, in a very negative way.
Walk away. 

For years I have tried all types of eating plans, dieting, etc. I seem to start out motivated but lose interest after a while and give up.   My desire is to lose some weight, get off of blood pressure medication and eat to feel well. I admit I love sugary treats and desserts way too much! 
So, my first step is to stop eating anything with added sugar.  My goal is to eat low carb/Keto. I am still investigating it, but I know a few people personally who have been successful with this plan.

Exercise, oh dear, I have such a love/hate relationship with it!  
When I am in the routine of exercising I enjoy it.   How I wish I never let it go!  
I recently found an exercise program that I really like. It is fun, low impact, low stress and fun music that makes me want to move!  It is called body groove, the instructor is Misty Tripoli. She has workout DVDs and online workouts. 
They are dance-based workouts, crazy dance workouts for my living room! 

I am replacing the toxic products in our home, 
with safe, non-toxic products. 
Sharing a pic of some the many things I am replacing.
I am excited to finally take this step.

A New Year!

Happy New Year!!
A fresh new year, full of possibilities, hopes and dreams.

Keep in mind...

2019, the year I start changes for a healthier life, 
a healthier home, a healthier family. 
The year I begin reaching out and helping others more.
Sharing my life, my story. 

God is good.
