Hi my name is Karen and I've decided (for the nth and last time) to get fit.
I've tried before but not wholeheartedly. I'm closing in on the big five 0 and have given myself 2 years to be in the best shape of my life.
The last time was about 10 years ago when I was on the South Beach plan, going to the gym regularly and I looked and felt great.
That was about 50 pounds ago.
Well now I live in a small town without a gym. I do walk my dog about 2 miles a day but it just isn't enough. So I bought the exercise bike, some dumbbells, a swiss ball, a kettleball and I'm ready to go. Just need to keep up the motivation. So I'm looking for a Sparkbuddy who also needs help on their journey. Let's get started.

Member Since: 3/18/2011

Fitness Minutes: 772

My Goals:
I'm involved in a community group that put's on a street fair and dance in our little town each summer. I would like to be in shape and have lost weight so that I can dare wear summer clothes. And also so I can help out to the fullest as it is a long day full of fun!

My Program:
I'm using both the Spark program for tracking the fitness portion and South Beach for the nutrition. I have used it before (and yes I gained the weight back) but I am in a better more stable environment that I can make whatever plan a lifestyle choice and stick to it.

Personal Information:
I live in small town Saskatchewan where I run my own kitchen design business. My husband and I enjoy playing music and have for the last couple of years played in a band with some friends. We also enjoy going to the local jams and creating music and friendships.
We have a dog Oliver who adds greatly to my exercise routine(2mile walk a day) and 2 cats, Meiko and Coco to cuddle with. Coco sometimes comes with us for a walk during the summer but complains most of the way!

Other Information:
I love the Saskatchewan Roughriders..Go Green!!!
