I stumbled across SparkPeople by accident back in May of 2007 and I do believe it is one of the BEST things that has ever happened to me! I know this journey IS different for EACH person, but I started with drinking my 8 glasses of water a day and logging my food. Let me just say that logging my food was a HUGE eye opener... DANGER! DANGER! From there I moved on to exercise which for me consisted of walking, walking and yes, more WALKING. I am starting to seriously branch out in how I exercise... Kickboxing, Zumba, Spin and even Bootcamp!

THANK YOU SPARKPEOPLE FOR HELPING ME CHANGE MY LIFE!

I can see my toes without moving my belly out of the way or bending over.

I can touch my toes.

I can reach the center of my back with my hands.

I can put my leg up on my knee to tie my shoes without pulling my foot up with my hands.

I can walk to the end of my driveway and back without feeling short of breath.

I can walk around the block (1.5 miles) without feeling like I might die.

I can alternate walking and jogging on my morning walks.

I can comfortably wear a pair of size 14 jeans. (I was in an 18, pushing a 20 when I joined.)

I can wear size large shirts.

I no longer fit into clothes at Lane Bryant... They are TOO big!

I can breathe easier.

I am OFF of all high blood pressure medications.

I not only sleep better, but fall asleep easier.

I can hike and I do it often.

I have joined a gym and use it.

I have participated in a boot camp fitness club.

I have walked a 5k, a 10k, a 15k, a half marathon and a marathon.

I have jogged a 5k.

I have done a stair climb.

I have walked 60 miles in three days to fight breast cancer.

I know I could go on and on, but I won''t...

    Thanks for stopping by! I've been slacking this week, lots of errands and dr's just do not promote good eating & fitness. emoticon No worries though, it's back to it tomorrow with lots of fruits and veggies and some video workouts.
    Hope you are doing well. Spark on!

    So far so good...I've made it 60 days Sparking. It's been a while since I've done that. Glad to hear you are still Sparking on and continuing your journey.

    Life is good. Keep Moving!

    Good morning! Well, I'm not active on any teams...I'm horrible about keeping up with them so this time around I'm trying to be more active with reading articles, getting back to fitness, and even posting on odd message boards. Life's so crazy here I find myself not wanting to do what I need to do so maybe we could be more accountable to each other. Maybe that will help us both?.
    Hope your day is spectacular!
