- TOTAL RESET -

I joined SP in 2007. I was 'obese' and reached my weight goal - 125 lbs and 22% body fat in 2008.

I counted my calories daily with the SP FOOD TRACKER, found MOTIVATION in SP ARTICLES and various SP EXERCISE GROUPS.

I RAN, SWAM, BIKED, learned MARTIAL ARTS, did YOGA and STRENTGH TRAINING with Coach Nicole and Jillian Michaels DVDs.

After a few rides up and down the weight-roller-coaster-ride (some calls it the 'YO-YO' effect) since then, I am back to SP ...

After a few rides up and down the weight-roller-coaster-ride (some calls it the 'YO-YO' effect) since then, I am back to SP now with different goals.

I want to be able to install myself into a routine I can realistically maintain and enjoy over the years, instead of intense quick temporary fixes that left me injured and frustrated in the past.

Right now, I enjoy HIKING with my family, indoor BIKING and ICE SKATING. When Hiking season will be over, my family and I want to pickup Snow Shoeing.

Right now we are in the midst of a major remodel. We have the kitchen, utility room, and bathroom done except for a little trim and the dining room and hall except the floors and trim. We are working on the enclosed back porch now and have the bedroom, living room, den, sewing/office room to do. We have done a little wiring on some of those rooms and moved some doors and a closet. Lots of work!!
