I started with Spark a year before my Mom passed in 2009. It got me through a tough period 11 years ago and I enjoyed coming home from work and getting my spark on, making friends, spinning the wheel and earning points.

I drifted away from it- no rhyme or reason. It’s been a couple of years since I wrote on my blog. I just stumbled on it today, decided to refresh my name, update some pictures and clear my head by writing. I’ve been writing still, just a couple of sentences a day in my five year book.

2020 has been a year for the record books. My first pandemic 😷 . Finally under -200lbs. I now have a cardiologist on my support team. It has also been a self discovery year. A year of change. Self care. Growth and development. This is only the new beginning 🥰

My Goals:
My goals are to continue my weight loss journey, eating for fuel not living to eat. I have to watch my carb intake, get my fiber and water in and still control my portions. Practice self care, social distance, speak my truth.

My Program:
I am watching my carb intake and cardio, cardio, cardio

Personal Information:
I am originally from Michigan and relocated to Kansas City by the way of Missouri in 2009. I am a veteran of the United States Marine Corps . I just bought a home in 2012 in Kansas City, deciding to set down some roots, spread my wings and really get to know the middle of the US. I recently got married to a wonderful guy in June 2014 and we are settling down quite nicely here and ready to live life to the fullest! My husband is my greatest supporter.
