Train Insane, Train Insane, Throw Some Glitter, Bring the Pain!

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.

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.

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.

SparkPoints: 58,756

Fitness Minutes: 59,697

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 workouts...it ups my mood & keeps me going!

I love what you wrote on NUOVAELLE's running blog. I particularly liked the part, "the fact that I was signed up, and people knew I signed up. I have this ego issue I guess, where there was no way I couldn't do it." Once people know, I have to do it just to prove I can. I love your sentence!!

Have a wonderful month!!

I look forward to keeping in touch more and talking more often. And I keep thinking about you and the end of your studies and I'm really, really so proud of you! Another friend of mine also finished her finals this month and she is also a mom. You both remind me of how much a person can accomplish when they believe in themselves. It's never too late for anything in life. It's only late when our hearts stop beating. Until then we can just dream, believe and achieve!

Hello Precious,
Just came by to give you a hug and let you know that I'm praying for a successful end to your studies. I imagine you will be trying to get things done that you haven't had time to do properly while concentrating on your studies-I finally did spring cleaning when I graduated. I also guess you'll be thinking about your resume and what kind of job you could do w/o taking away all of your mommy time.
So know you are on my mind, in my heart and in my prayers.

Hi Beth,
It has been forever since I have checked in on spark. How have you been doing? How is the family??
September will be a busy month, my oldest is getting married and Amanda will be having her 2nd baby.
I am doing well but not lost any weight this year...actually probably put on some pounds. Trying not to stress about it and having a beautiful dress made for Jay's wedding.
Hope all is well with you and that your finals went well.
Elaine
