I am teaching myself a new way to live. I joined in December 2009 and I have bounced back and forth quite lazily for longer than I ever should have! I am making the decision now to do it. I am not going to try. I am going to do it... until I can't.

My goals range from simply tracking what I eat to hiking to the highest point in Arizona! I am ambitious, but have to remember to keep the steps small so I feel the power of success on my way to larger goals and don't get overwhelmed in the process!

I wish to play Soccer with my daughter as much as possible. I will be able to hike Humphrey's Peak (4.7 miles and 3313 ft elevation gain)! I will run.

I will achieve all of these things and maintain that lifestyle for myself and my daughter.

On December 27th, 2013, I joined Weight Watchers in an attempt to get some one-to-one accountability and maybe some competition to help rev up my will-power! See blogs!
