Little bit about me, i'm a happily married 36 year old mom of 3 - with a 16 year old, 13 year old and 2 year old. I am a neonatal nurse (love my job) and was called to this profession because my first two kids were both micropreemies. I enjoy riding ATVs and being outdoors, and love to garden.

I work night shift and one night I was sitting at work chatting with a co-worker talking about my coffee consumption and how I really needed to give up the half and half (little coffee with your half and half anyone?) For fun I thought I would measure it out and realized I had been putting 8 tbsp per cup of coffee at 5 or more cups a day! That is 800 calories a day in just creamer. What a wake up call! No wonder I couldn't lose the baby weight from my now 20 month old. So I kicked that, decided to revamp my diet and hit the cardio and i've already lost 12 lbs. So here I am, looking for people to share this journey with.

***update 4/21/10

It's been almost a year now, and I have lost more than 55 lbs here on Spark! I am a new person! I can run 8.5 miles at a time, I can fit into size 8 jeans, and keep up with my 3 kids. Thanks for all the support everyone!

My Goals:
Portland Marathon 10/10/10 - we are registered and training! Hotel reserved and paid for, and babysitter (aka Mema and Papa) are coming with us to watch the little one. 26.2 miles...ya that's crazy! lol

Goal: after I hit my goal weight, I want to learn yoga in my maintenance phase

My Program:
I work out 6 days a week, at least an hour a day. I love cardio, especially running. I hate strength training - with the burning passion of a thousand fires ... lol I know it would be good for me but I just don't like sore muscles. =) I will run 10 miles before I lift for 30 minutes.
