Hi, I'm Beth! I'm 34 years old and the mom of four wonderful children! I have been a member of Spark for over 4 years now and just love it here.

Ran my first half marathon on 5/3/14 with my SP BFF aka SFF!
Time: 2:27:26. Best experience ever!

Now my focus is on continuing to strengthen my body and rid it of the excess weight I've been holding on to.

My regular eating plan includes no sugar, but I will never deny myself of anything. A little cupcake know and then never hurts. And a little glitter here and there does not make me a girly girl!

I love & need support and encouragement that Spark offers. With four children and going to school full-time it can be very busy and very stressful.

Member Since: 10/9/2009

Fitness Minutes: 81,278

My Goals:
To live a healthy & happy life!

To be a healthy BMI
My goal weight range is 150 - 160.

My Program:
At LEAST 10 minutes of exercise daily! Once you hit 10, who wants to stop?!
I had always stuck to a pretty clean diet, but since the birth of my baby girl in January I have not followed that plan as well. I still try to stick to lean meats, whole grains, fresh and tasty fruits & veggies and other healthy proteins!

Personal Information:
My family and I live in the suburbs of Pittsburgh, PA. I love it here, and although I did not grow up here, I'm glad to be here now and I love this city! Go Steelers & Go Penguins! I think we have a baseball team too...
I'm currently enrolled in on-line college, University of Phoenix. I received my associates in Health Care Administration in June 2012, and am now working on my bachelor degree. I will graduate in 2014.

Other Information:
I have 4 wonderful children. My oldest daughter is 17 & my sons are 13 and 5 and my baby girl is 17 months. My kids and my hubby are my life, and I'm super content with that :)

I also LOVE music...all types, and it's great to have during my ups my mood & keeps me going!

    Thanks for the note. Three years and it is great. You worked hard for your future.

    I am doing way too much to get the house ready for winter. Our Youngest son lives in our basement still. He as a job and DIL has a job and our granddaughter stays home in the basement doing Virtual school. She was a gifted talented kid. She did the school here and she said she had not learned anything new just nothing.
    They have been here almost 2and half year. It does work well but I want to get the house ready for winter. I am so happy you are back. Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon
