"Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all."

I am interested in health and wellness. I want to improve my quality of life! I have been eating more whole foods, fruits, veggies, meats. They make me feel wonderful and can be really tasty, I swear! Also, have been very much trying to avoid processed or "refined" foods.

I work full-time as an Accountant and have my B.S. Degree in Accounting. I sit at my desk a LOT because I have tons of work most days. It's a far cry from my last job where I had almost nothing to do, so was able to get up and move around. I'm trying to figure out how to get this done and be chained to a desk all week.

Feel free to message me if you are in the local area, I would love to have some local friends or fitness "buddies". Or even if you just want to be my SparkFriend!

Fitness Minutes: 27,722

My Goals:
To be healthy/fit and to like how my stomach looks. Haha!

My Program:
My goal is to workout 3-4 times a week doing cardio (30-40 minutes) and weight training (alternating legs & arms, working in abs almost every time).

I bought an elliptical in addition to the treadmill I own about a month ago and am trying to get back on track with using it. We'll see how it goes!

I love the way I feel AFTER I am done exercising, and wouldn't mind having someone motivate me! I can be a good motivator as well. If there are any LOCAL ladies that would like to be a workout partner, feel free to message me.

Personal Information:
My weight has pretty much been an issue for me since I was 16-17 towards the end of my Junior year in HS. I started gaining & by the spring of 2002 I was 185 lbs heavy. I was unhappier than ever.

After seeing a co-worker on weight watchers, I received tips from her on what to do to lose weight. I was enrolled in a nutrition class at the time & it made me look at food in a different way. That's when I found out there are 4 cups of sugar in a 32 oz. soda! FOUR!

I lost 55lbs in 6 mos., but then I got married & started to gain it back. By the end of my marriage (less than 2 yrs later), I was already back up to 175lbs. Once my ex & I split I lost about 15 lbs & stayed there until I met a new guy.

I then moved to Visalia & in w/my then bf, only to gain that 15lbs back. After about a year I was unhappy w/myself & my relationship. It wasn't until Dec. of 2007 that I started to get back on track. It's been 3 years & I am almost back.

2013 UPDATE:

Other Information:
I really like music, movies and television. My favorite kinds of movies are comedies or romances. Music, I mostly like alternative or indie rock type of stuff. Definitely like girly music though (Sara Bareilles, Tegan & Sara, Eisley, etc).

I've also started learning the guitar recently, it's always something I've wanted to do.

    New Years!!!!!!! I am going to be doing home workout videos as a resolution because I find I stick to them much more than I do to "go out and do such-and-such" resolutions. But I do want to get back into DDR. Say you want to too!!!

    Thanks for the blog comment! If we did get a treadmill, it'd be near the tv so I could watch tv while I walk too! We do have some free weights, such as dumbells, but Andrew & I both want to start press benching. My parents actually have a treadmill and weight bench (of course that they don't use and I yell at them for it), but it'd be so much easier having it at our house. Perhaps we could get a treadmill and use their weight bench. Haha. I'm more open to using their equipment, but Andrew isn't...he'd rather just have our own. Plus, when it's winter or raining, I'd love to have the option to walk inside! :-) I guess we'll have to search for some deals. My parents got a really good one at Sports Authority. Around $550 I think.
