For Mira

My name is Susan, and I am a 37 year old married mommy to a toddler, Mira.

Due to my heart condition, having Mira was a bit of a challenge. At 7 months into the pregnancy, I ended up in the hospital with a-fib and an accelerated heartbeat (200+ per minute). Medication wouldn't help, so they had no other option than to cardiovert me (us). For anyone else like me who isn't up on their medical knowledge, that means they had to shock me --- and my darling baby in utero.

My name is Susan, and I am a 37 year old married mommy to a toddler, Mira.

Due to my heart condition, having Mira was a bit of a challenge. At 7 months into the pregnancy, I ended up in the hospital with a-fib and an accelerated heartbeat (200+ per minute). Medication wouldn't help, so they had no other option than to cardiovert me (us). For anyone else like me who isn't up on their medical knowledge, that means they had to shock me --- and my darling baby in utero.

Long story short, we both survived, and I delivered a healthy 6lb 4oz full term baby 2 months later. Mira is thriving. My heart: still so/so. There is talk of a possible surgery to fix my condition, but open heart surgery doesn't really rock my world. Maybe if I lose the weight I won't have to have the surgery. Or if I have to have the surgery, surely it will go better if I am in a healthier body.

Granted, this has been going on with me for a while, but I didn't do anything about it. On 4/27 I hopped back onto my stationary bike, and I haven't looked back since then.

I'm not looking to lose weight, per se -- though that is awesome. I just want to be healthy. I want to play with my daughter, and be around for my family.

My Program:
Step 1: Get moving! Exercise is the key for me. I have never done a lot of it, and my body shows it. Not only am I big, I ache. I am carrying too much weight around.

In the future, I hope to increase my water intake.

I am monitoring what goes into my body, but not following a diet, per se.

Personal Information:
Married 13+ years, mom to a toddler daughter. I work full time in an office.

Other Information:
I love to read and I like music. I like to think I am crafty, but I seldom finish a project!

emoticon , I didn't mean to put unneccessary pressure on you in regards to fitness minutes. I can empathize with you about how depressing your situation is at the moment. I was just thinking simple steps like drinking your water, or setting a goal of getting so many vegies/fruits in a day. Without all the challenges you've faced these last months I've had my up and downs and frustrations and find that I tend to think in terms the all or nothing and think in terms of the bigs steps but I've found that isn't always what counts.
Hoping your test results come back with encouraging news.

Maria’s Onderland Party is finally here. Friday we are throwing Maria (Fusion Fitness) a dance-a-thon at 6pm Standard Time, Maria’s web page http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage.asp?id=F
USIONFITNESS3 Just cut and paste this address in your browser. So same time as California in the States. She likes music from the 70’s so we will be having a Disco Party. It won’t be a party without great Spark Friends stopping by to celebrate, dance a bit and offer Congrats to her for all her hard work to get to this awesome goal. If you don’t mind bring a Spark goodie with you to share at the party. We will have Video web addresses for the songs we will be dancing to, so everyone can get some fun partying in, and cardio at the same time. It would be great if you can take a picture of your dancing and if you are up for it throwing in some Hippy outfit or maybe just a Peace sign and post it on your page or a blog so Maria can see everyone having fun at her dance-a-thon. John Travolta will be there you can count on that! I am looking for some flower power, maybe even a cool peace sign lol. Wouldn’t it be great if we could all Skype a dance party? Anyway please come if you can and make it a Special time for Maria!! Hugs Susan and Peace & Goovieness

Maria’s Onderland Party!! We are throwing Maria (Fusion Fitness) a dance-a-thon party on Friday Feb. 22nd at 6pm Standard Time, At Maria’s web page. So same time as California in the States. She likes music from the 70’s so we will be having a Disco Party. It won’t be a party without her great Spark Friends stopping by to celebrate, dance a bit and offer Congrats to her for all her hard work to get to this awesome goal. I am giving a week notice so you can save up some spark goodie points if you don’t mind to share at the party. We will have Video web addresses for the songs we will be dancing to, so everyone can get some fun partying in, and cardio at the same time. It would be great if you can take a picture of your dancing and if you are up for it throwing in some Hippy outfit or maybe just a Peace sign and post it on your page or a blog so Maria can see everyone having fun at her dance-a-thon. John Travolta will be there you can count on that! I am looking for some bell bottom pants and some flower power, maybe even a cool peace sign lol. Wouldn’t it be great if we could all Skype a dance party. That would be a blast, but unfortunately not an option yet. I wouldn’t be surprised if that creation was just around the corner. Anyway please come if you can and make it a Special time for Maria!!
Hugs Susan and Peace
