Hi! Welcome to my page... my "home" for the past 5 years... my tool to track my progress and reaching my goals!

I am a certified yoga teacher (CYT 350)... 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 PBs:

Feb 2013- 10km Winterlude - in the snow! (46min- New Record Female Master);
