Reflections of Me...

Hello from MEDFORD, OREGON. My first look at SPARK was Sept 2012 and I've been getting healthier ever since. It's been a slow but steady journey while managing both health and self challenges, but I've come a long way with the help of my SPARK PLAN and SPARK FRIENDs. I've become more self motivated and more self accepting. I'm taking more risks and I've learned to be more assertive in my own beliefs in order to be more successful in my new way of life.

When frozen and craving a bit of chocolate break off a piece.

Fitness Minutes: 62,255

My Goals:
My goal is to be the best me I can be for myself, my family and my GOD.

This year my goals include: Doing more for me, taking risks, accepting change and reaching out.

All these things are necessary for me to loose the last 50-60 lbs.

My Program:
My program involves: tracking my moves with a FITBIT Zip and my nutrition with SPARK, running with PODRunner and learning to try new exercise moves.

I don't believe in FAD DIETS and don't like pills or medications.

I believe everything is good - in moderation - so nothing is totally off limits.

I generally follow a 80/20 plan for a healthier lifestyle-- 80-90% of the time I'm focused on healthy nutrition and ways so that 10-20% of the time I can enjoy life without worrying about numbers. (Life happens and this way I don't have any guilt over it 8)

Personal Information:
Residing in Medford, Oregon.
Born in Kansas and raised all over -- to include Maryland, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Washington and Germany

I'm a US Army veteran and served most of my time in South Korea.

I love my family -- to include 1 husband and 1 cat, 2 children and 3 grandchildren. I love to craft and learn new types of crafts (yarn and thread types mostly, but I also have an interest in paper and children crafts). I work in a high stress, ever changing environment. I want to get into better shape so I can keep up with the wee ones 8)


Other Information:
I like WInnie the Pooh and really am a kid at heart!

There is no chance, no destiny, no fate, that can hinder or control the firm resolve of a determined soul. ~Ella Wheeler Wilcox

I know, that's what I keep saying; what about those relatives that don't even use facebook or the computer at all (I have many aunts/uncles who don't even have a computer); they still don't know about the birth and it's so sad.

Oh well, I guess if they wanted people to know, they could call them, otherwise it's nothing important to them, so sad.

But she's here, and on her way home, so that's what's important. I guess the thing that bothered me the most about it is my Mom lives a couple blocks down the road from my sister in law, and she didn't even bother to stop by, or even call her, and she's the Great-Grandmother. I mean, it was 8am, my Mom was up, there was no reason she couldn't have at least given her a call, afterall she did notify all of her own family and every one of them were there, plus her best friend, all via phone. (21 people total she called, all her own relatives.) Just looks like she didn't want our side of the family there. That's what is really frustrating, but oh well, consider the source, right?

Have a great day and move forward without looking back. Have a wonderful weekend and smile! emoticon
