Hi! I'm Janey. My purpose here is to share about the positive new direction my life is taking through good nutrition and exercise. I have always been passionate about saving money around the house, especially when feeding my family. I hope you will enjoy sharing some of the best things I have learned on my journey!

My vision is to be a great example of heart healthy living.
I love that my DH, Dave and I enjoy exercising together. I continue to add running events to my fitness schedule.
My short term goal is to reach my adult lifetime achievement weight by 5/31/2014.

My last "five pound bag of potatoes" weight, has been hanging on for a good 15 years. This is it! Time to go. It has taken two years and counting, but I will get my Belly button back! Woo Hoo!

I thank SP daily for what we have accomplished nutritionally. The changes we are making are adding quality and happiness to our lives. Who knew that eating healthy and exercising could be so fun?!!

My main Health goal has been to focus on my own choices and quietly go about my wellness business.
The true joy in my Spark Journey has been every time a family member or friend asks about healthy choices for thier own lives.

LOVE ur UPDATED page on !! WOOHOO That I just happen to come onto here,, JUST THE SAME DAY you UPDATED it !! I didn't realize that Dave is with this ,, along with ya ! THAT"S PERFECT !! So glad you are both working on nutrition,, and also the exercising !! GREAT HON !! I WISH I had an H right now,, who would also join me,, it'd be more fun !!

I DO have a swimmin partner,, but we are going to the Movies today (Seeing "Into the Storm " !! I am DYING to see it !) but the VERY FIRST thing outta her mouth was "I want to stop and get CANDY and at the movies,, I'll get "just" pop corn,, I also want soda. SIGH !!!! She WAS also my lifestyle buddy,,, guess NOT !! SInce my foot has been bad,,, we've not swam together,, so I can see now,,, she has QUICKLY GIVEN UP again. SIGH !! She had lost 15 lbs, in 3 months,,, now NO DOUBT it's back on her,, and most likely with MORE Also !! That'll put her back up between 265 to 280. SHe just does NOT care,,, I WISH she would. She's also a hoarder,, like on TV,, and I am SOOO SCARED she's gonna be evicted,, her D is outta the house now,,, outta school,, and I got the feeling the management only allowed her to stay there,,, as gross as it is,,, cos her D was in school,,, and they felt so bad for the kid. SIGH !! She told me "I found some baby mice inside" to me,, that means she PROB HAS BIG MICIES !!! SCARY !! ALso I am sooo scared since she keeps getting very sick in the winter,,, she MOST LIKELY has MOLD in her room,, ,where she keeps dirty dishes,, clothing thrown all over the place,, diry ones. SIGH JANEY !
