Weight has always been a battle for me and Spark has been a helpful place to keep me focused on my health journey. It does help having others who truly understand how hard this really can be and I love my SP teams and friends!

My Goals:
5% Challenge: Make the 5% mark during the fall challenge!

My Program:
Fitness at home. (Body weight strength/core. Wii Fit. Cardio.... still working on this due to knee injury.)

Nutrition: Working towards "clean" eating the majority of the time. Current nutritional change that is needed is: *Dr. Pepper has to go!

*build some "me time" into things (reading, cross-stitch, an evening out...)

*personal bible study time

Personal Information:
A 57 year old stay-at-home mom to two teenagers (Daughter is 16 and son is 14) and have been married to my hubby for 36 years. Changes! I am no longer homeschooling my son as he wants to go to high school. That is complicated by his autism so I know I'll be spending time with the special needs staff. Daughter is a high school graduate and working 20-30/hours a week.

I also work from home part-time as a Support Broker. This means I support families with their documentation and budget monitoring for the funds qualified for through Health & Welfare to assist their special needs.

I am a Wellness Advocate for doTerra Essential Oils. I am a casual sharer...not currently out there pushing the business side!

    I want to be the smile
    I want to see the change
    I want to be your friend
    From the start and once it starts
    It never ends
    I want to be your pal
    I want to be around
    I want to be your friend
    When you are down
    I want to be the sunshine
    On your smiling face
    I want to be the moon
    No, I want to be ocean
    Where all we do is float
    Under the sun on the rolling sea
    Oh, I want to be the sunshine
    No, I want to be the moonshine
    I want to be the night time lullaby
    When you're so afraid
    And I think I found a way
    To put a smile on your lonely face
    I think I found a way
    A way to break down all the walls
    I think I found a way to say
    I think I found a way to say hello
    I think I found a way
    Without saying anything at all


    Wishing you a Happy Valentine and many good wishes to you through out our journey to a healthy lifestyle. emoticon emoticon

    I am trying to keep calories, carbs in check and just see what all I eat during the day to keep me so messed up.
