Enjoy the Ride

Hi, my name is Bonnie. This is my third time to join Spark People but I hadn't been on in a few years before joining this time. A little about me: I am 26 years old and just finished my last semester of online classes for the foreseeable future but will be looking into continuing my education later on so I can get a degree/certificate. I babysit my nephews, who just turned 3 and 2 years old last summer, for 4 days a week for a total of 45 hours while my brother works.

Hi, my name is Bonnie. This is my third time to join Spark People but I hadn't been on in a few years before joining this time. A little about me: I am 26 years old and just finished my last semester of online classes for the foreseeable future but will be looking into continuing my education later on so I can get a degree/certificate. I babysit my nephews, who just turned 3 and 2 years old last summer, for 4 days a week for a total of 45 hours while my brother works.

My exercise plan: I do Leslie Sansone's Walk Away the Pounds DVDs, walking videos from on demand, and either Biggest Loser Cardio Max DVD or kickboxing workouts. Now that the temperatures are rising a bit for spring, I am getting back out for walks and am enjoying every moment of it. Also, I can be active outdoors longer now because I'm stronger and have more energy than I did even last fall. So I'm reveling in that feeling!

My brother, nephews, and I live with my mom and stepdad in a small two bedroom house and it is very cramped. It can also be very stressful a lot of the time as I sleep in the living room. My sleep is interrupted pretty often and there is no such thing as privacy, but I try to keep my head up as much as I can.

Some of my 2014 achievements:

808 miles walked, indoors and outdoors
over 16,000 fitness minutes (in seven months)
60 pounds lost!
10 BMI points dropped
