Well I'm at it again. I signed up for the half-marathon for January 2018. In 2015 I completed three half-marathons in various cities. 2016 was not such a good year with physical and mental challenges. 2017 was successful... So I'm at it again. Looking forward to the challenge and really grateful for being back on track. I tell you this up and down thing has got to stop! I'm in it to win it!!!!! These marathons get me on track. Now if I could just do them year round I would be in great shape. Instead I slip until it's time to do the next one. This year seems to have been really tough. I need to update my pics, those pics are really old..

Fitness Minutes: 70,125

My Goals:
I'm really doing this for my health. I pay attention to numbers and at my last doctor's visit, my numbers were not good. My goal is to get the numbers back to a healthy point: weight, BMI, cholesterol and get out of the pre-diabetic range!


My Program:
If you eat it, you need to count it! Count the calories, count the carbs, count the sugar (in all its forms), count the exercise minutes and count the calories burned!



Personal Information:
I was born and raised in San Francisco, CA. The weather in the Bay Area is NOT to my liking at all. I am happy to be in sunshine and look forward to the summer! I've carried extra pounds most of my adult life. I've tried just about every weight loss program short of having surgery. Now I'm doing it on my own with the help of SparkPeople and the support of a million plus Sparkers!


Other Information:
It IS possible to make positive lifestyle changes that become second nature. I am still a work in progress working toward my own perfection.

    With summer fast approaching I hope that you have been doing well.
    Now that the weather is getting better there are so many different activities we can get involved with. I love swimming so I can't wait to swim in our lake. I also enjoy a good walk in a park listening to the birds sing and watching my dog try to chase a rabbit or squirrel. She had very poor eye site so she never see the squirrel go up a tree and rabbits just disappear on her. Have fun and remember the sunscreen. emoticon
