I've been a Spark member since 5/25/2004. That's a lot of time, to learn a lot, collect a lot of underpants, suffer from analysis paralysis, and go the wrong direction. Granted, there were a lot of absences in that period...which kind of highlights my #1 problem... consistency. But I'm here again, and I'm still working on it. Fall down once, get back up. Keep going.

Member Since: 5/25/2004

Fitness Minutes: 92,113

My Goals:
I really want to improve my overall fitness. I'm just out of shape all around. I want to tone up and feel strong and be flexible. I want to "dominate my bodyweight." I want to feel comfortable in my own body and be able to just move and live my everyday life without worrying about being too sore, too tired, too weak, too out of shape, to scared I'm going to injure my back.

I want to be happy with myself and how I look and feel, no matter what I weigh, and I want to be a good example for my sons as they get older. To be proud of myself and teach them good habits, I need to develop those good habits for myself 1st.

My Program:
Right now, I do nothing, and it's got to change.
In the past, I tried jogging/running... never really enjoyed it, and it was pretty hard on my body.
I've enjoyed walking, but never saw much progress from it...but at least I was doing something and felt better.
Cardio kickboxing DVDs like TurboJam (and the occasional in person BodyCombat class back in the day) were fun. Zumba was ok, but repetitive. I have a hard time carving out that "me" time for scheduled classes because it's just that much more time away from my family/kids. I crave flexibility, but cave when executing...
Weight training is just meh. I tried ChaLean Extreme. I like fitness bands. I like Nia Shanks material. I like seeing progress. I hate getting too sore too quick and stalling out.

Yoga classes were great (but see above re outside classes). I have a few videos I like, but they just feel lacking overall. I really do love yoga though. The strength, flexibility, mentality of it

Personal Information:
Married to my high school sweetheart with two amazing boys. Homeschooling my teen right now, and chasing my pre-schooler. Working full time with two hours of commute time every day (yay, audiobooks).

    Just wanted to say hi to a fellow Springfield-ian! My husband and I just graduated in December from MSU, where we attended for 4 years.

    Congrats on being a new mother, and good luck with all your goals!

    Hey, Thank for joining the New Turbo Jammers team.
    My name is Evie, I am 23 years old and trying to lose 45lbs. I know that it is hard to lose weight, bit I guess nothing worth getting is ever easy. Just know that you are not alone and together we are going to lose the weight and be Fit and Fabulous.
    Good Luck! Keep me posted on your progress.
