My Toolkit to Happiness

Hi! Welcome to my page... my "home" for the past 4 years... my tool to track my progress and reaching my goals!

I am a runner and I practice yoga... I enjoy going for walks; I have fun finding and trying new recipes; I love to travel and discover new things. I am in the Army (officer) and I am committed to be a positive influence to the people around me - especially my 2 daughters - Emma and Maggie.

My action PLAN...
Motivation: I am doing this for myself ...
Hi! Welcome to my page... my "home" for the past 4 years... my tool to track my progress and reaching my goals!

I am a runner and I practice yoga... I enjoy going for walks; I have fun finding and trying new recipes; I love to travel and discover new things. I am in the Army (officer) and I am committed to be a positive influence to the people around me - especially my 2 daughters - Emma and Maggie.

My action PLAN...
Motivation: I am doing this for myself first... The reward is feeling good about myself, sense of accomplishment and a positive attitude.

Goal Settings: I set short term and long term goals -rivised periodically! Small steps... I can do this! No more excuses.

Stress: Get out there and work out, it will make me feel better - I keep a personal journal for whenever I need to get the negative emotions out and I BLOG to reflect on the POSITIVE.

Sleep: Getting a good night of sleep is my challenge

Eating: this is not an issue! Really? Eating the right things to keep you going is different and avoiding emotional eating can be a challenge...

Imagery: Focus on the positive, picture myself doing it and remember how it was the last time I did: learn from my mistake.

10 years ago, I could not run 5km. A few changes later and committing to my goals with Spark, I fell much better, positive and proud of my successes. In 10 years, I don't want to have any regrets so I give my best everyday!

My personal challenge:
GO the Distance! 2013= more than 2200km... repeat in 2014

Running and events:
2013:
Feb - 10km Winterlude - in the snow! (Done - 46min) ; Relay for Life (Done!!! Raised 2225$ and did 65K in 12 hours) ; CF Running Championships 10K(May - PB 44.54) ; Army Run 13.1 (Sept, 1h39)

I conquered a MARATHON!!! Niagara Falls (Oct 2013, 3h36)... I qualified for the Canadian Forces National Championship (May 2014) and Boston 2015!

2014:
May - Ottawa Marathon and Canadian Forces running Championship - 3h35m45s, 130/2605 Female, 29/130 F40-44; June - Relay for Life

Thanks for the sparkgoodie and your comments. I've begun to wave at spectators and smile for the camera. I've not gotten the confidence to chat with other participants during the race. This race I did accept a few hi-fives and said 'good job' to other participants. My next goal is to say to participants - 'we'll make it to the finish' or 'I'm gonna see you at the finish'. This is for us tail-getters.

completed Wisconsin marathon in Kenosha Wisconsin today. I think I'm going to relax I might go to UT & WY and do a back to back. But I got some conflicting schedules I gotta see how I can work that out. That's in June and then I definitely won't marathon until probably September Travel is I'm very expensive so if I can get 2 in for the same plane fare it helps.
