SparkPeople helped me rediscover the hidden me (2010) Still here & learning each day!

Hi and Welcome,

I am proud to say I am a "40 something" mom and after 1 year here on SparkPeople have rediscovered "me". I finally found the answers to my eating, health, and exercise questions! Plus the support is top notch here & on some days is my life perserver when I am floundering with lack of motivation or frustration with the scale's movement.

Hi and Welcome,

I am proud to say I am a "40 something" mom and after 1 year here on SparkPeople have rediscovered "me". I finally found the answers to my eating, health, and exercise questions! Plus the support is top notch here & on some days is my life perserver when I am floundering with lack of motivation or frustration with the scale's movement. I've said "Bye, Bye" to quick fixes and fad diets and embraced the goal of a healthy lifestyle and being an ACTIVE role model for my son. I show him daily what dedication, persistence, healthy habits, & the joy of learning something new can do for you & how it helps YOU GO FAR & LOVE LIFE. I've learned to face challenges, set goals, & when I stumble get back up & move forward plus it sure helps having my Spark Friends lift me up when I am down.
Here's to another year & a lifetime filled with my inner "SPARK".

Fitness Minutes: 110,405

My Goals:
My goals for this year 2012:
* After weighing in and taking my measurements I'd like to aim for a 10% body weight loss so 15 lbs. plus at least 1 or 2 pant/dress sizes

*To race in 5k event that promotes community togetherness or a good cause this Spring/Summer

*To stick to a budget & savings plan so that I can purchase airline tickets to Florida to see my parents with my son

*To find a good balance in my life between work, family, and the long lost ME time. Yup, its ended at the bottom of my list the past few months. Time to reclaim some time and better healthy habits

My Program:
I am tracking my food daily and choosing & creating healthy meals for myself and family. (or at least trying when time allows)

I am drinking 8+ glasses of water daily to keep up with my body's demand for the "good stuff."

My current aim is to workout at least 3 times a week with cardio, strength & toning, plus yoga for mind & body balance.
I am mixing up my cardio workouts by doing: outside walk/jogs for 2 miles or more, plus walking my dogs their 1 mile route or more
elliptical training
Zumba & walking dvds
Wii fitness or XBox 360 Kinect fitness games/training
level.

Basically my motto is: "Get up & MOVE".

When weather permits I get outside and work in the yard for a practical workout & my vitamin D supply

To keep myself in the loop I do my best to read articles and blogs here on SparkPeople, plus the message boards for motivation and advice.

Personal Information:
I am still a Yankee-New England girl at heart but call our family home, North Carolina. I am a Boston Bruins fan and LOVE Raymond Bourque. Besides finding ways to bring exercise & fitness into my daily life I enjoy reading, quilting, gardening, painting ceramics, and creating stuff on my computer (Flipbook is GREAT for organizing family photos & having fun being creative).

I am determined to uncover my inner child once again & enjoy the adventure & journey of life. I am learning to value the little things in life and set goals. My most valuable possessions are my family and friends, without them I would be lost.

I've also lived life from both extremes in concerns to weight- I've been anorexic at 70 pounds and an overeater depressed individual at 177 pounds, now its time to find the "true" healthy me and the weight my body is happy & fit at. I've dealt with epilepsy and learned how to live a life with it and not let it hamper my growth.

I've overcome some big

"Every day of our lives we are faced with a choice.
The choice to BE, or to be truly AMAZING.
Ask yourself if what you're doing today is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow.
No matter who you are, or what you do, you absolutely, positively do have the power to TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE."

Thank you for your comments of support & motivation on my blog. Right now the cortisone shot works for about the 1st 4-5 days then the pain becomes intense again.
