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!

Member Since: 3/20/2008

Fitness Minutes: 92,305

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.

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!

    “Don't let the expectations and opinions of other people affect your decisions. It's your life, not theirs. Do what matters most to you; do what makes you feel alive and happy. Don't let the expectations and ideas of others limit who you are. If you let others tell you who you are, you are living their reality — not yours. There is more to life than pleasing people. There is much more to life than following others' prescribed path. There is so much more to life than what you experience right now. You need to decide who you are for yourself. Become a whole being. Adventure.”

    I'm actually going to try and skip any pain meds today just so that my feet do hurt tomorrow! They are really sore again this morning after walking and standing at the cross country meet yesterday.

    “One’s philosophy is not best expressed in words; it is expressed in the choices one makes. In the long run, we shape our lives and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And, the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility. —Eleanor Roosevelt”
