OK, so tonight I actually looked at my Spark Page and thought....hmmmm, this is kind of old!! It doesn't even begin to say where I am today:) Well, because of my family, the love of God, and the love of my friends I have gained, and the amazing resources on this site, I have made it to my goal...

Along the way I have made many sidetrips...the one to the sea of saturated fat in mcdonald's land was my favorite by far:):) I visited there quite frequently until my bod said...ummmm, helllooo!!!! What do you think you are doing to me.

Then I got mad, I quit smoking 1.5 years ago, and I needed to get tough about me....

So, I started walking every day. Then I got bored (I'm like that), so I started running. It really stank, I was not even the least bit thrilled with this workout. I then got mad (again) at myself, and started the rookie running room thread. Found myself some awesome friends that really helped take the edge off of the new workout routine. We totally supported and helped each other succeed.

Well, today I sit, successful in work, successful in play, and extremely thankful for the people that have helped me be me - Cass and first ever group in this guys rock my world:)

My Goals:
I would like to be able to keep up with my kids in all they want to do. To be able to walk into a normal store, pick a piece of clothing off the rack, try it on, and (gasp) buy it because it looks great. I would also like to be around to see my kids get married, and to be able to run like heck when they find out it was me that put popcorn in their wedding bed (later finding out it was me that upgraded them to a hottub suite:))

My Program:
My program is pretty simple. My family has switched our priority to healthy eating. I manage to make 6 healthy dinners per week, with one cheat day (not out of hand). My workout regime consists of running 4-5 days per week for about 5 km, and doing tai bo for 2 days a week (until the end of tax season:))

Personal Information:
My name is Trish, and I am from Kelowna BC, Canada

If you would like to talk to me personally, leave a message at the sunny okanagan chat room.

Other Information:
I absolutely love the Clan of the Cavebear series...wishing that the last one would come out soon. My favorite movie is still Dirty Dancing (when will I get over Patrick????).

    Hi, haven't been on SP too much in the last year. I remember you blogging about your hubby and his illness and your trips to Vancouver. It seems things have changed in that regards. I am really sorry for your and your family's loss. Even though this is kind of late. I hope you are doing okay. I lost my ex husband but not to illness, to his own hand, but no matter how we lose them, it is so hard on our children and the whole family unit. Thinking of you...............
