I joined Spark in early 2009 to help prepare and motivate myself for my first 10k (that my best friend signed us up for!) and get in shape in the progress. It has been a great, fun, successful journal and the habits I have learned along the way has made being a healthier, fitter me possible.

My biggest motivations have been fitting comfortably back into some of my clothes that have gotten snug over past few years.

The first time I got down to business when I needed to get in shape, I did a great job on WW and was a whole new fit me. Then after a stint in a pretty stressful, and busy position, I found myself gaining the weight back little by little when the stress had went away. Then it was all back.

So I am here on Spark & gaining motivation! My biggest stay on track thing has been signing up for running races. So far I have done a 10k, multiple 5ks and 5 halfs. I need to pick my next race! Gonna keep signing up to keep me going.

I am going to be taking part in a few challenges this Spring to get back on track. Including the Winter 2014 5% Challenge where my intention is to work out at least 30 mins a day at least 3 times a week and track my food and fitness progress thorugh an online tracker like My Fitness Pal or Spark People.

I work Mon - Thurs in Santa Clarita and live in Saugus.

    I would just like to comment on my previous comment on your page... Yeah, just down below. Yes, you like going to conferences! You just joined me at one for the heck of it! So funny!

    Thanks for starting this group & keeping it going. Since we aren't drinking too much wine these days, here's a virtual glass for you!

    Hey Deb, thanks for the comment on my sparkpage! Glad you're getting into races too. I love the HM. They are challenging but doable. I love to run the San Francisquito Trail off Heritage Park (McBean/Newhall Ranch). Maybe someday I'll see ya there! Did you run in the Santa Clarita races?
