Hey everyone, I'm Christina, or some call me Chris, Chrissy or just Christina. I'm a software developer in the DFW area. I sit on my butt a lot since I am at a computer all day. I've been on spark a long time, but only recently have I become serious about getting healthy again. I keep doing well, then falling off the healthy track, then back on again. It's making progress take way too long.

I wear pink often, in honor of my mum who passed away on October 26, 2015, after battling inflammatory breast cancer for 18 months. She was the strongest woman I've ever known, and she stayed strong until her last breath. I will do anything I can to honor my role model and woman of whom I owe everything to. This year I will get my first mammogram, making sure to get tested, do weekly self exams, and get as healthy as I can. I'm now at risk, and my risk jumps up because I'm over the age of 30 and never been able to have a child. Apparently you get a 50% more likely chance to get breast cancer if you don't/can't have babies...yay me. I'm an advocate for helping others any way I can. So if you have questions about breast cancer, don't be afraid to hit me up.

    Thank you for stopping by my blog, this morning. It sounds like you have a great plan in place for the day! I took a look at your page and I really like how you are honoring your mother, with what you do.
    I am honoring, my oldest son who died by suicide, in 2014.
    They are closer than we think and we will see them again, one day, but until then, I know they are smiling down as we live our lives the best we can and are there to travel our healthy trail, with us.
    I find that infusing my water with different things can help me drink more of it. emoticon
    Have a wonderful day.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! I appreciate it. I would not consider myself a runner by any means...I walk/jog/run......but mostly walk. A goal of mine is to run in a 5K....but running on a treadmill verses outside is WAY different. I love my treadmill. For now.....I'm sticking to it and just trying to beat my time every now and then. :)
