My Lifestyle Page

As with other pages on this site, this page is drawn from a separate blog that I was keeping.  So you may find that you have read some of these articles.  It is my hope as I bring all my interests together under on title, that you may find something to bless your life.  So, with that… welcome to my Lifestyle page. The information you find here are about health and fitness – both physical and spiritual.


I’ve been thinking about my life lately… a lot.  I read a book the other day called “Ultimate  Health“.  It is written as a collaboration by Tony Jeary, Rick Wilson MD, Jennifer Engels MD and Tammy Kling.  There was something about this book that just hit my heart.  It really wasn’t until my second read, that this one little sentence screamed at me from the page.

“Be intentional about designing your own life.”  (page 40)

BE INTENTIONAL ABOUT DESIGNING YOUR OWN LIFE!!!!!

Designing my life!  What?!?!?!  I get to do that?  Well yes I guess I do.

This book has caused me some serious sleepless nights of late.  I’ve had some real heart to heart talks with myself in the wee hours of the morning.  I’ve prayed for wisdom and guidance.

So here’s what I’ve come up with:

1.  I am not as healthy as I should be.

2.  I do not exercise

3.  I am 7 years out from a diagnosis of Ovarian Cancer – More on that at a later post

So…  in September of this year, I turn 61 years old.  I am re-starting my goal of regaining my health.  I will be taking the next 365 days to bring myself back.  To begin designing my life, the life that God intended for me.

To learn more about me… click on the “About Me’ button.

My goal for this blog is to hold it as a witness to the next 365 days of my life.  Please know that I am a God-fearing Christian woman.  I make no excuses for my faith and I don’t hide it under a bushel basket.  I will not hold back on prayers, faith chats, etc.    This is not a blog about Theology… so we won’t be having those discussions here – well at least on this page.

I hope to be very transparent on this blog (while remaining semi-anonymous).  I will be posting everything I can.  I will post my food issues, perhaps an anonymous picture from time to time, as well as recipes/tips/hints that I come up with.  I am not an expert, if I was would I be in the shape that I’m in??? As for designing my life…  well I think that all of that is going to work itself out as this year moves along.

So….  having said all that….  here we go.

Ultimate Health

I just finished reading this book – Ultimate Health – for the second time and have begun to really work through each chapter of this treasure.  I’ll admit it, I’m going to be 58 years old in a week or so, and I am NOT even close to being healthy – forget about Ultimate Health.

So when I read this book…  it really made me think.  I come from a line of folks that live long lives… but the way that I’m going, that’s not going to happen.  So…  in addition to what I write here, the books I review, the stories I share, etc.  I am launching a new blog in a day or so (the bare bones are there already).  This blog is about the next 365 days.  One year in the life of a middle age woman… my return to wholeness and health.

I plan to launch the blog in a day or so, I do hope that you’ll join me over there as well as your support here.  I do appreciate you all that have “liked” and “follow me”. Continue reading
