SparkPoints: 23,202

Fitness Minutes: 11,547

My Goals:
* I will only weigh myself once a week.
* I will exercise at least 4 days a week, for at least 30 minutes each day.
* I will eat at least 1 fruit and at least 4 vegetable servings every day
* I will unwind every day (as in myofascial release).

Weight Goal:
* By August 20, 2015 - weigh between 157.4-197.4 pounds.
* Monthly weight loss goals: 5 - 8.3 pounds shed per month
* Reach my target weight of 160 by September 27, 2015 - my 40th Birthday, which I will celebrate at Walt Disney World with family and friends.

My Program:
I am using the Nutrition Tracker and Fitness Tracker regularly.

I'm participating more in SparkTeams for support, inspiration and motivation.

I'm doing various exercise DVDs (kickboxing, cardio dance). I enjoy power walking to some energetic tunes. I also enjoy the occasional aerobic dance class. I love swimming when I can find a pool. I also love kayaking, but I sadly only do it about once a year - I want to increase that.

I enjoy restorative yoga and want to fit it in more.

I practice almost daily self myofascial release, it's amazing!

Personal Information:
I'm single, 38, no children, no pets now (though I love them and had a dog for several years). I live in New York City.

I love to travel. I'd like to be more physically fit so I can be more active on vacations.

I love all things Disney. I like to scrapbook. I love almost all kinds of music.

Other Information:
"And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom." - Anais Nin
