Member Since: 4/26/2013

Fitness Minutes: 1,058

My Goals:
My goal is to get healthy. I have to be able to be here for my children and be able to keep up with them. I also want to be able to do what Gd has called me to do and I need to be able to have enough energy for it all. I am looking at 5 pounds at a time as a short term goal and 80 pounds is my long term goal.

My Program:
Making healthier choices is the big one, water instead of the coke, salad instead of fries, but also treating myself once in awhile without going overboard. Exercise is also something that I am trying to make time for on a daily basis even if its just taking the dog for an extra long walk while pushing my son in the stroller.

Personal Information:
I was born and raised in NJ but I now call North Carolina home. I am 43, my husband 67. My husband and I and 7 of our 11 children (8 mine, 3 step) live close to my father in law and help him out. he just turned 90. Both of my parents are in Heaven, just recently lost my mom who was my best friend on March 28, 2013, 2 weeks after her 81st birthday.

Other Information:
God comes first in my life. I love Him with every fiber of my being. I love to sing, I am on the praise and worship team at church, We used to Pastor a church until my husband retired in October of 2011. Now I am an Assisting Minister at the church we attend.
