Enjoy the Ride

Hi, my name is Bonnie. This is my third time to join Spark People and I have been on here this time since May of 2014. This is definitely a lifestyle change, I truly can't even imagine going back to the way it was for me before.

If you would like to read my Wordpress blog, on which I have tips and information about losing weight and how I've done it, please copy and paste this link:

A little about me: I am 27 years old and I babysit my nephews, who just turned 4 and 3 years old this summer, for 4-5 days a week and a total of 45-50+ 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. Lately I've been having foot issues so have cut back a lot on walking related workouts. I also joined my local gym and am LOVING using the elliptical again as well as the upright stationary bike, and am learning more about strength training using the machines there. Now that it's summer, I have found I can be active outdoors longer and do more than I did even last fall. I have more energy and endurance/stamina than I did then and it is so refreshing! I love having a higher quality of life in day-to-day living.

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.
