Today is day 1 of the rest of my life. I joined SP in 2012 bouncing from 180 to 160 but it seems like happy medium is 170. I don’t like any of those numbers. Today I wiped all of my about me and will reset everything here. Why? 1. I’m a full time wife, mother, and student. 2. My mom died a couple of months ago. 3. I have asthma and high cholesterol that is being managed my medication. 4. I have serious back issues that were exasperated when caring for my mom. 5. God is bigger than anything and I need to take control of my daily habits. I’m done with hurting. I’m done with not being able to do what I enjoy. I need to keep moving forward. Goals: See neurosurgeon. Get tested for allergies. Find a workable anti-inflammatory meal plan while I’m in college, and can be flexible for when I’m working. (And one flavorful for hubs) Loose 5 pounds a month. Not harsh myself. Here’s to the first day of the rest of my life.

Member Since: 5/10/2010

Fitness Minutes: 20,977

My Goals:
I'm 40 something and need to be in better condition and lower triglycerides.

Long term:
Get to 140 pounds by my birthday 2016. (see new goals under update)

Short term:
Eat healthier and track intake.
Spend more time being active a day, at least 10, and track it.

End all be all:
Feel and look healthier.
Lower cholesterol
Set a good example to my family.

My Program:
SparkPeople calorie intake guidelines.
Walk 5 miles or more a week.
Get out into the Red Rock/Sedona area of my neighborhood.
Be active, 10 minutes a day, doing whatever makes me happy.

Personal Information:
I live in Arizona now. Have been married since 1991 and have a son with autism.
I was homeschooling him and he's now in public school. That is an answer to my prayers and better for my health. He did not like going outside, and I LOVE going outside!
I work for God in everything I do and my health should not be left out!

Other Information:
Whew! My days are busy!

I read my Bible and find strength and encouragement in it. I have a bestie friend who has a heart condition and understands.

God bless you all! You CAN do this!

    Hey Nicci! Here is wishing you a wonderful weekend. Ours is super busy (which is kind of scary for my food plan) Tonight our Alpha and Omega youth group is putting on "Night at the Ponderosa" dinner and dancing. Should be a blast, but like I said the food choices are not good for my plan. And tomorrow is wrestling tournament ALL day in CFalls! Whoo hoo! Anyway have a fantastic weekend and congratulations on the 30lb loss!

    Thanks for the encouragement on my blog! My little aspie (we think) is not able to tell me specifically what is bothering him. The older, teenage aspie will probably have a hard time if we look for another church. So, hello rock...hello hard place! lol We are definitely praying, and appreciate if you'd pray for us too! Thanks!

    Anyway, thank you again for your advice- we are trying what the school has been putting in place- and we tried headphones, but maybe earplugs would be better- if he'll tolerate them! =) I am thankful that the school has really worked hard and helped....amazing what a few years of improvements will do. (It wasn't as easy to get help for my older one.)

    Have a great day!

    I am so glad to meet you as well, it is a really small world isn't it?? Thank you for the encouragement and the fellowship. I will keep you in my prayers and I look forward to meeting you in person.

    "And be not conformed to this world: but be ye TRANSFORMED by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good and acceptable, and perfect will of God."

    Hi there! I am a fellow youth pastors wife in the Valley. What a small world! I just found Spark last week. I am excited to include it in my "Journey to Wellness." I will be praying for you. I love that there is someone close by on this journey with me! emoticon
