I am here on SparkPeople so that I have a support system in place to help me focus on and achieve my goals, get encouragement, connect with ...

Fitness Minutes: 28,742

My Goals:
Current Goals:

1) Complete a "century" bike ride (100 miles) during the Century Cycling Challenge at my gym which happens from Apr. 7-May 4. Deadline: by May 4, 2014

2) Get into the "healthy" weight range for my height (5'3") which would be 104-141 lbs. Deadline: by June 25, 2014.

3) Hit my goal weight of 130 lbs by my 39th birthday. Deadline: by August 24, 2014

4) Wear a figure flattering bathing suit this summer & go swimming. Deadline: by August 31, 2014


My Program:
1. Strength training at least 3 days/week.

2. Heart pumping cardio/interval training at least 2 days/week.

3. Walk, bike or combo walking/biking at least 5 miles/day, 5x/week. Separate from cardio/interval training.

4. Eat real food & choose the healthy route most of the time. Live the 80-20 rule: "Because while you should always aim to eat healthy most of the time, aiming for about 80% of the time gives you that wiggle room every sane person needs to still enjoy themselves."

5. Read inspirational stories from other Spark members to stay motivated.

6. Blog about how my health/fitness journey is going.



Personal Information:
I'm a blues singer from Cambridge, MA. I am very lucky to be able to pursue my passion in life (music). I love to bike and I use my bike as my primary mode of transport. I enjoy good food/wine as well as cooking for friends and family. I believe in the law of attraction and that positivity attracts positive results. I consider myself a student in the school of life and enjoy learning something new each day.

If you don't drink booze, never mind, but here's my recipe for a great drink for singing, when your throat isn't your best or any time at all, that my singing partner and I named "A wee nip of courage":

Brew (strong) Throat Coat tea and Peppermint tea together
Add honey to taste and a shot of Southern Comfort
Stir; enjoy; sing your heart out.
