SparkPoints: 45,491

Fitness Minutes: 30,000

My Goals:
My goal is to be healthy, which includes stronger and slimmer than I am today. I want to be able to play with my children and in the future, my grand children.

My Program:
I plan to track everything that passes through my lips as well as all of my exercise. It is challenging. Right now my goal is 20 minutes of exercise 6-7 days a week, eating 1400-1600 calories a day.

Personal Information:
I was happily married with 2 dogs and between us, 5 children. November 27, 2013 my life changed drastically. My husband died unexpectedly. Now I have to learn how to live all over again.

Other Information:
My favorite exercises are Pilates, Elliptical, Stationary Bike, Weight Lifting and especially swimming and exercises in the pool. I would have loved to take long walks with my husband and dogs, but arthritis in both knees stopped me. Now I have replaced both knees and no longer have a husband to walk with.

Poem " Allow Yourself "

Allow yourself to dream,
And when you do dream big

Allow yourself to learn
And when you do learn all you can

Allow yourself to laugh
And when you do share your laughter

Allow yourself to set goals
And when you do reward yourself as you move forward

Allow yourself to be determined
And when you do you will find you will succeed

Allow yourself to believe in yourself
And when you do you will find self confidence

Allow yourself to lend a helping hand
And when you do a hand will help you.

Allow yourself relaxation
And when you do you will find new ideas.

Allow yourself love
And when you do you will find love in return

Allow yourself to be happy
And when you do you will influence others around you.

Allow yourself to be positive
And when you do life will get easier.
