Hi my name is Alexis and welcome to my SparkPage! I live in rural North Wales surrounded by farms. I am blessed with a lovely partner and two boys aged 4 & 5 years old. I am here to lose weight and get fit. Don't be shy, stop by and say hi, I love to meet new people.

Member Since: 5/31/2015

Fitness Minutes: 14,074

My Goals:
My goals are simple:
1. Stay healthy
2. Get fitter
3. Lose weight - around 0.5kg per week goal.
4. Get stronger
5. Train for the 'Race for Life' for our Dad who we lost to Sarcoma last year
6. Climb Mount Snowdon, up and down (no cheating with the mountain railway)

My Program:
I'm currently following The Autoimmune Protocol to hopefully put my autoimmune diseases into remission. I am currently in the elimination phase, which I have to found to be a liberating experience.
As for fitness my primary exercise is power walking, which I love. I have also taken up aerobics, water aerobics and Zumba. I also have started to enjoy the benefits of strength training and yoga. Who knew I had an inner fitness freak waiting to get out!

Personal Information:
My name is Alexis, I am 45 years old. I loved to eat too much and exercise too little, I am here to learn how to eat the correct amount and how to exercise correctly.

Other Information:
I love to garden, and this year I decided to grow many more fruit and veg and cut some of my garden annuals.
At night I can be found glued to my Kindle, where I like nothing better than a good whodunit or thriller. Although my favourite book of all time is Tess of the D'Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy, which gets re-read every November with a box of tissues (for the sobbing) and for the past 27 years a rather large box of chocolates. I will need to find something healthy to snack on this year.

    Hi Alexis! I'm finally sitting long enough to stop by and say "Hi." I'm glad you stopped by the the Walking/Leslie Sansone Hangman game. Don't be shy, jump in any time to guess a letter or solve the puzzle. Our fearless leader, Lexie is also from GB, so you two are at least in the same time zone.
    I hope you have found support your first month with Spark. If there is anything I can do to help, please let me know. I've been with Spark so long I've become addicted.
    I hope you have a great day, Melissa

    My coffee, blanket and couch was very relaxing last night. Today's weather is not going to be much better than yesterday. Chilly and rainy. I might get out of the house Wednesday since the weather is looking a bit better and go swimming with my daughter.

    I don't know June about the caffeine, I just like strong black coffee. Even the boys leave me alone until I have had my first cup, then suddenly all becomes right with the world. I have actually cut down quite a lot, I used to drink an entire pot, now with all of the water I'm down to three a day. emoticon
