Change is the greatest power in the world today.

SparkPeople helped me loose 19 pounds in 2013, and over a brief hiatus for the holidays I've managed to gain a couple back, but I will not be deterred, I am committed to loosing more in 2014.
I learned to love sweet potatoes last year, and have compiled several recipe favorites. In 2014 I hope to add more leafy greens to my diet, specifically kale, spinach, chard. Please let me know if you have a favorite recipe to share!

Last year I participated in five 5K events, and had so much fun I've decided to add a 2014 fitness goal of one 5K per month.
In addition to eating better and keeping active, 2014 will be the year I BEGIN to get a grip on my finances. It will take me many more years, but I'm taking the first step. 2014 is a great year to gain control, and I have the power!

My Goals:
In 2014 I want to lose 10 pounds, experiment in the kitchen with leafy greens (adding more spinach, kale, and chard to my diet)and eliminate $3000 of total debt by the end of the year.

1) Find time for fitness 5 days a week
2) Make a new recipe at least once a week
3) Keep a running total of monthly credit card debt, and whittle down to 2 cards by 12/31
4) Participate in a 5K walk/run every month (posted here as I register)
- January 4th YMCA New Years Resolution 5K Walk/Run

Personal Information:
I live in a small community in SE MN, but like to travel when I can. I'm lucky to live so close to the Mississippi River; I find water so soothing! I also haven't met a craft I didn't like, but I'm most fond of rubber stamping.

Other Information:
I went back to school and finally got my accounting degree in 2010 at the age of 48. I have 3 wonderful children, 2 adorable granddaughters, and am married to the man of my dreams. I'm a lucky girl, destined to be a Cloverleaf!
