Hello All, My Name is Kelly Mahoney and I live in Central Florida. I consider myself an aspiring ragamuffin. Not ragamuffin as in a cat or a rag picker or something, but a ragamuffin as defined below:

ragamuffins--The unsung assembly of saved sinners who are little in their own sight, conscious of their brokenness and powerlessness before God, and who cast themselves on His Mercy!!! (Brennan Manning, The Ragamuffin Gospel)

Join me in the Journey!!!

Member Since: 1/4/2011

Fitness Minutes: 40,898

My Goals:
Be able to walk and run without my thighs rubbing together and chafing.

Increase endurance when running so that I can sustain a running pace for 60 minutes.

Learn to keep my core activated, and carry myself with better posture.

My Program:
I am tracking food, exercise, and water intake.

I am STILL nursing an aggravated foot so exercise is nore challenging than ever. I am committed to 10+ minutes ST a day and 20 minutes cardio.

I am working on establishing a more regular sleep cycle. My goal is to get a minimum of 6 hrs sleep at night.

I am making it a point to connect with each of my Spark Teams at least two times per week, and each of my Spark Friends at least once a week.

Spark On!!!

    emoticon Hello Kelly! It was so nice to hear from you. I am hoping you will make it to the mall walk today (Thursday). You will meet some wonderful people if you do. They will encourage you I am certain. Unfortunately I will NOT be there. I don't have a way to get there, but intend to be there on Monday. Perhaps I will get to meet you in person then. Have a great day and keep smiling sunshine. emoticon
