Hello again SparkPeople! I used to be very active on this site 10 years ago! I'm back finally, with a very different life, and approach to nutrition and diet. I'm now 38 years old, and Mama to a beautiful, funny, smart little toddler named Madeleine. I'm engaged, and help co-parent his 10yr old son. I had kind of a nutso pregnancy, and ended up losing 40lb during the 38 weeks. It was partially due to hyperemesis, partly because my appetite had been naturally reducing for months. Hurray for that. In August of 2017, after over a year of watching documentaries, reading, and discussions with my fiancé, we decided to go Vegan. We're also cutting out gluten, as Steve has a moderate sensitivity to it. Not an allergy, but in the right amounts, it can make him pretty uncomfortable and sick. So, we're going to be raising a Vegan little girl (and encouraging my stepson while he's here). We'll definitely emphasize the animal cruelty and environmental impacts of our decision when she's old enough to understand. We just know that right now, for our family, and our healthy, that this is the right decision for us.

My Goals:
*Spend 2010 getting to a healthy weight to prepare myself for

*To not have my thighs rub together when I walk...

*Celebrate the day when I can't shop at Lane Bryant anymore!

*Spread the word of SKORCH Magazine that curvy women are beautiful, sexy, healthy and WORTH IT!!


My Program:
I love to work out now!

Since I have moved, I am totally in need of finding a new workout schedule. I have a gym I can workout in at my parents' house, but need to find a Zumba class SOON!!!

I try to eat very clean during the week, and give a little wiggle room on weekend dinners. I bring lunch to work every day and pack healthy snacks.

My usual eating schedule:
B-fast is either 7:30 or 8am; Snack is an apple and low-fat cheese @ 10ish; Lunch @ 11:30 is a lean cuisine or dinner leftovers; Snack @ 2:30 is edamame or protein shake; Speckial K protein water @ 5ish; Dinner w/Martin depending on gym schedule; Snack around 8:30ish of cereal or oatmeal usually and a small piece of (70% or higher cocoa) dark chocolate



Personal Information:


Other Information:
My husband and I love to cook, which can be a blessing and a curse. We can pull out some fabulously flavorful healthy meals - but we're also really good at making some stuff that will leave you wanting seconds or thirds!

We tried to start a cooking club last year - but it was a bust. Our friends really didn't understand what we wanted to accomplish with it. It turned more into a pot luck.

    Happy Birthday to You!!

    Born today (June 3), you have a sort of sixth sense that allows you to know, with a kind of uncanny certainty, what others are up to -- beneath the surface, when motives are hidden and intentions are disguised. Surely this talent will serve you well, but it can also be something of a curse, for it is likely to breed in you a kind of suspicion of all people and all situations that is difficult to shake, even in the best of circumstances. At worst, it can make personal relationships very difficult for you; at best, it can keep you out of the kind of trouble from which you may not otherwise recover.

    You are able to see things in a logical progression, even when confusion reigns. Indeed, others are likely to come to you again and again for clarification when the truth is concealed in some way. This doesn't mean you are the kind to do things right at all times -- and when you do make mistakes, they can be very big ones.

    Today’s Gemini Horoscope: You are close to solving a personal mystery, but without the information another carries, you can only get so far.

    Hope your day is wonderful!
