The Page Where Life is Happening!

I am a Christian, happily married, mom to 5, musician, and a MK Independent Beauty Consultant. I am busy with changing my sedentary lifestyle to a more active one, eating a healthier diet, and having fun while doing so... time to quit looking at numbers on a scale and to start living life and enjoying it as I make healthy changes for me!

This is my time.
It is time to focus on my needs
not to ignore others,
but to stop always putting myself last.

This is my time.
It is time to focus on my needs
not to ignore others,
but to stop always putting myself last.

This is my body.
It is the only body I have,
if I don't take care of it now,
when will I?

This is my desire.
The desire to break the chains
of those habits holding me down.
To be free, to soar.

This is my life.
There are a myriad of ways to live it.
The choice is up to me,
And I am determined to live it healthily.

Member Since: 8/23/2012

SparkPoints: 52,176

Fitness Minutes: 29,628

My Goals:
To get to know God in a more intimate way.
To get down to a "normal" BMI.
To "find" myself as I transition from full time mom to an empty nester.
To recapture my dreams and live my life to the fullest.
To be able to run a 5K again.

My Program:
When I started my healthy lifestyle journey my weight was 286 pounds, and I was completely sedentary. Much of the food I was consuming was fast food or packaged prepared foods, and other quick and easy choices. The first thing I did was to cut out most of my fast food consumption. Next I added in drinking more water. Finally I added in exercise to the equation (thanks to Spark Guy and his "you can do 10 minutes" concept) I am now down over 45 pounds. I love the energy I have, and the ability to do so many more things!

I am currently following the Whole 30 food plan. My desire is to jump start my body into healthy eating, to get over some of the illness issues I have with food, and of course, to lose some weight in the process.

Personal Information:

Other Information:
"Most people live and die with their music still unplayed. They never dare to try." Mary Kay Ash

I am going to live my life to it's fullest extent, I am going to get off the sidelines and start playing again.
