I am finally at a point where I view getting fit and healthy as one of the most important things I will ever accomplish. I still have a good 20-25 pounds to lose, but I will get there by eating mostly whole, organic, unprocessed foods; eating appropriate amounts; eating regularly; and getting fit through strength training and cardio. It's hard work, but the end result is worth all the effort. I am so appreciative of all my Spark friends. Love you guys!

Member Since: 5/16/2006

Fitness Minutes: 31,954

My Goals:
My goals are to get these last 20 pounds off my body for good. I want to develop a healthy relationship with food and exercise and learn how to balance calories in and calories out. I want to be a good role model for my kids. And mostly, I want to be around to see my kids grow up and to share in their life achievements. I want to grow old along side my husband and lead an active life.

My Program:
I am currently tracking what I eat and exercising consistently. I am keeping my calories under control by eating more fruits and vegetables, lean meats, a very small amount of grain products and lean dairy. I strive for a minimum of 30 minutes of exercise daily and I'm shooting for 60 to 90 minutes on most days. I am focusing on strength training this year so I can build some muscle to help off-set a slow metabolism.

Personal Information:
I'm from Colorado and enjoy all the outdoor activities it has to offer. I have two teenage sons and a fabulous husband.

Other Information:
I love to bake (but if I do, I have to be able to give it away!). I love making soup and trying healthy new recipes. I love to read when I have time. I love to bike, hike and enjoy the outdoors with my family.

    Let me know if you want do do super good instructional videos for a very reasonable price. I do Paul Lam as a supplement to my classes and when I am in the Philippines. He is excellent. You will find free many of his free videos on YouTube as well. They are introductory.
