Hi there! My name is Christine and I love life! All of it. I love to eat, I love to cook, I love to workout (fortunately), and I love to travel. I'm married to a wonderful man who is from India and who shares my love for life. I have a 17year old daughter, Anna who is getting ready to attend UC Davis, and a 21 year old Step Daughter, Maja who is currently enrolled at San Francisco State. I am here trying to temper my love for fattening food, while increasing my enthusiasm for exercise.

I am 45 years old and trying to convince myself that I am okay that I will never wear a bikini. I just want to be healthy and energetic for my family and my friends.

My goals for this year include a half marathon in October (Silicon Valley Half) and to drop 15 pounds.

Member Since: 12/27/2005

Fitness Minutes: 28,708

My Goals:
I want to lose about 20 pounds. I am in good condition (you know the old fat but fit cliche!), and I'm 5'10, so I carry the weight well, but for once in my life I want to have - if not a six pack - a three pack!! LOL

My Program:
Training for a half marathon - so this summer will include a lot of running and cycling (simply because I love cycling). I will also continue with Tony Horton's One on One workouts.

Personal Information:
I live in San Jose, California and I'm 45 years old, happily married with three kids and my dog, Jimmy. Please feel free to email me at

Other Information:
P90X Grad
Insanity Grad
Cathe fan
Training for my 3rd half marathon
Last year rode 100 miles on my bike for The LiveStrong Foundation.

    i like your saying "wag more and bark less" - i'm going to put that on my desk at work! thanks! p.s. i'm a cathe fan too, although my fitness level is a little lower than it needs to be to do her workouts all the time -- she's really good!

    I have just viewed your SparkPage and am impressed with all the running you have done. What an inspiration! I hope to someday be able to say I have run two half marathons and am preparing for a third. I've run several 5K's, but nothing bigger yet. Thank you for encouraging me.

    Christine - Thank you so much for adding me as a co-leader to the Cathe Fans Team. I do hope you will be able to come often and share the things you learn from the Cathe Forums. I'm a member over there as well, but don't have time for everything. (whew)..... :o)
