My favorite quote comes from William James...

"To Change Ones Life...
Start Immediately...
Do It Flamboyantly...
No Exceptions."

I am fully committed to the following:

NO Whining about things NOT under my control
NO Feeling sorry for myself
NO More putting everyone else before Me all the time
NO More power given to my X
NO More "I'm too sore to workout"
NO More "I'll do it tomorrow"...or "next week"


It is right in front of is within my grasp, my power and most of all... my mind.

I am in a race to save my own life and I will let NO ONE especially MYSELF get in the way of my goals.

I am 49 years old and I WILL NOT be 50 and as overweight and unhealthy as I am.


~~I WILL remove 50 pounds by my half century~~


I Will be HAPPY
I Will be healthy
I Will be a role model
I Will be proud of myself
I Will beat Christy and Becky to Yellowstone :)
I Will walk with grace & dignity
I Will once again ride a bike
I Will set daily goals that are sound and reasonable
I Will celebrate my victories no matter the size
I Will support anyone who wants in on the journey
I Will wear a swimsuit with out shyness (ok... I already do that one! LOL! Maybe a bikini one day?)
I Will be my own Sun...and the rays for others

Come along with me....there is plenty of room here on Spark with tremendous support if you only seek and return it.

Shout outs to my Chi team...I LOVE YOU GUYS SO MUCH!

Christy & Becky... I am honored to be on this incredible journey with the two of you!

WOOT WOOT to my PURPS....You all inspire me daily...Luv ya Nic!
(Kat is Soooooooooooooooo cute....and you will always be a Purp in my mind!)

SPARK GUY....I don't know you but I am truly Grateful for you and this entire community that you have built...I hope to one day say Thank You in person but until then I am thrilled to be a part of all this.

That said...

My Goals:
My goal is to be consistent with my workouts and to eat portion controlled regular meals. Because I work such a crazy variety of schedules I find it very difficult to stay on track.

My Program:
LAFitness ROCKS...they are a great facility and are on my way to and from work. I use elliptical's and ST. I also am babysitting my sisters treadmill for the winter and use the ball, handweights and videos at home. I LOVE LOVE LOVE to swim but it is too dang cold to go outside with wet hair right now :(

I started a virtual walk to Yellowstone National Park Jan 1st with Time_2_Shine & Chiloverinaz is approx 1000 miles for each of us and we are determined to meet there by Jan 2011.

    Think of you so often and wonder how you are. We sure miss you on the chi team. It's still going, but we're just "limping" along. I try and keep things going too, Nellie is pretty loyal, and a few others, but we've lost so many. It's depressing some days.

    Hope things are getting better for you. Call me if you ever feel up to it. I'm never sure whether I should bother you or not.
