Hello! Thank you so much for visiting my SparkPage. I turned 40 in 2009 so I want to make sure I'm as healthy as I can be. I need to make good food choices and exercise regularly.

Member Since: 5/5/2008

Fitness Minutes: 107,692

My Goals:
My goal is to get down to 140 pounds. I saved a pair of acid-washed jeans (circa 1988) and I would LOVE to get into them--not necessarily wear them in public--just to get into them would be awesome.

I've completed seven half-marathons and I'm going to complete my first full marathon on May 1, 2011 in Lincoln, NE.


My Program:
Regarding exercise--I find that I really have to change things up a bit every so often. If I get bored, I lose interest and don't do it. In 2008, I took four eight-week sessions of boot camp at my gym. That "sparked" my running passion and I love hot yoga and kettlebells. Not sure what's next!

I aim for eight glasses of water a day and at least five servings of fruits/vegetables, too.

    Thank you so much for reminding me that sometimes we just need a day in our pjs... I suppose I used to take those happily and relish in it. I slept in again today, but got out and ran and now I'm heading to my parents to see an aunt... so at least I am getting up and at em today! I might have wasted yesterday but I may be wasted today :) HEHE speaking of which I should bring some beer to the parents house. hmmm.... good day for it. hope you are having a great weekend! HUGS!
