When everything feels like an uphill struggle, just think of the view from the top.

When you see a person on a mountain top, just remember they did not fall there!

Thanks SparkPeople for getting me off the endless yo-yo rollercoaster. 8+ years and counting.

I started my SparkJourney in March 2007 when I was 10 lbs away from my goal weight.

I started my SparkJourney in March 2007 when I was 10 lbs away from my goal weight.

Prior to finding SP I had lost 30 lbs doing WW online but was unable to lose the last 10.

After 6 years of fine-tuning, trial and error I finally reached my ultimate weight goal in early 2013, and am now maintaining within a +/- 3% radius.

I'm hanging out and hanging in, still fine-tuning as I go. Maintenance does not mean you have it all figured out...

In the spring of 2012 I rediscovered hiking. It has become my passion. Okay, I'm obsessed. There is peace on the trail. It soothes my soul. And it builds some really mean leg muscle :)

My Goals:
1. Better nutrition: More veggies, more fruit, more whole foods, more water. It continues to be a challenge.

2. Improving my strength, endurance, and flexibility with continued regular workouts.

3. Achieving balance: Mind, body, and soul.

My Program:
1. Nutrition:
Focus will be on HYDRATION.
I'm terrible with water. Goal is 40 oz. a day. That's 5 cups. Even I should be able to do this.

2. Fitness:
Love to hike. You'll find me on the trail somewhere every weekend.

My favorite workout during the week is Zumba and/or kickboxing.

I also enjoy yoga to balance it all out.

3. Balance:
Aiming for at least 7 hours of sleep every night.

“CHANGE: Don’t just talk about it, go out there and do it.
Don’t just meditate about it, go out there and create it.
Don’t just pray about it, go out there and take action; participate in the answering of your own prayer.
If you want change, get out there and live it."
-Steve Maraboli

Yep NO is a complete sentence. heaven only knows how many times our kids have said it to us

I am just to nice a person and that has to change

stress knitting is the mindless repetive knitting where you do not have to think about it and just keep working away

thank you for commenting on my Colorado-Mount Elbert Blog! It was a very long hike and the altitude sure does not make it any easier but it was worth the struggle totally... I am not living close to mountains in general, so I had only one chance to get up and did not want to miss it! Greetings from Ouray!
