The power to make my dreams come true is within me.

Hi,I'm Amanda, a single 30-something gal living in New York City. I've had this extra weight on me for far too long, and I've been using it as an excuse for not achieving other dreams in my life. No more!

My Program:
I am using the Nutrition Tracker and Fitness Tracker regularly.

I'm participating more in SparkTeams for support, inspiration and motivation.

I'm doing various exercise DVDs (kickboxing, cardio dance). I enjoy power walking to some energetic tunes. I also enjoy the occasional aerobic dance class. I love swimming when I can find a pool. I also love kayaking, but I sadly only do it about once a year - I want to increase that.

I enjoy restorative yoga and want to fit it in more.

I practice almost daily self myofascial release, it's amazing!

Personal Information:
I'm single, 38, no children, no pets now (though I love them and had a dog for several years). I live in New York City.

I love to travel. I'd like to be more physically fit so I can be more active on vacations.

I love all things Disney. I like to scrapbook. I love almost all kinds of music.

Other Information:

Santa Claus has the right idea - visit people only once a year.

On St. Patricks Day I to pretend to be Irish. At Christmas I pretend to be good.

Mail your packages early so the post office can lose them in time for Christmas.
- Johnny Carson

I donít mind fruitcakes. Theyíre the one thing during the holidays Iím not tempted to eat.
- Melanie White

There are three stages of man: he believes in Santa Claus; he does not believe in Santa Claus; he is Santa Claus.

A Christmas miracle is when your family doesnít get into a single argument all day.

Here are some Letters to Santa...I hope you enjoy them...Kids are so honest!
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
Dear Father Christmas,
What should I leave for your reindeer to eat? Do they like cookies, too? My mom won't let me bring hay into the living room.
Your friend, Sandy

Dear Santa,
I need a new skateboard for Christmas. The one I got now crashes too much. Band-aids would be OK too.
David

Dear Santa,
Would you rather I leave you cookies and milk or pizza? Dad says you'd probably like the pizza. Write back right away to let me know.
Love, Lisa

Dear Santa,
Please give me a doll this year. I would like her to eat, walk, do my homework, and help me clean my room.
Thank you, Jenny

Dear Santa,
Mommy says that you only bring presents for the good little boys. That isn't fair.
Brian
