Hi , My name is Christine. I live in the great state of Ky and am married to a wonderful husband. I'm very active in my church and love people. I feel like I've been on a diet my whole life. I've done everything imaginable and tried all kinds of diets and hope this time is the charm !

This is 2015 ! I ended 2014 with a yearly gain ! Not happy about it but it is what it is ! I DO NOT want to regain all my weight so I must NIP THIS IN THE BUD !! I must get my focus back and remember my goals. I never could push through my plateau and after a year I kinda gave up. slowly old habits crept back in and bad foods too ! I am having some knee and back issues so I hope that doesn't keep me from my goals but I aim to get back to it !!

"Being fat is hard. Losing weight is hard. Maintenance is hard. Choose your hard."

"There are no failures-just experiences and your reactions to them ."

Now its 2014 and I am trying to get the last half of my weight loss done !! I lost 55 pds in 2012 and I worked hard in 2013 only to maintain that loss. I need all the support of my spark friends who have done this to help me through !

    Karen R (ADALOUISE) from the Scarlet Dragons would like you to join her this month in the Breast Cancer Awareness Month Challenge! Breast cancer has touched the lives of so many of us, and we all know early detection is the key, whether male or female!

    So before you give the tatas a once-over, let’s get in a workout first! The exercises listed have a modifier with each, so you can join in at any fitness level! If there’s still something you are unable to do, please modify to meet your specific needs! The point isn’t to show your strength training prowess and be the best of the best. The point is to PARTICIPATE! Now let’s get a little hooter sweat going before we hop in the shower to do our self exams!

    S-50 SQUATS (50 Adductor/Abductors)

    E-50 FRONT JABS (50 Seated Biceps Curls)

    L- 30 LATERAL LUNGES (30 Seated Hip Extensions)

    F-30 FORWARD LUNGES (30 Squats, holding the back of a chair)

    E-50 JUMPING JACKS (50 Seated Jumping Jacks)

    X-30 PUSH UPS (30 Wall Pushups)

    A-30 ALTERNATING HAMSTRING CURLS (30 Standing Hip Flexion/Extension holding the back of a chair or wall)

    M-50 HIGH KNEE MARCH IN PLACE (50 Seated High Knee Marches)

    Do what you can, modify what you need to, but try your best, regardless of fitness level! If you’ve got a suggestion on an exercise you’d like to see incorporated into the challenges, please let us know!
