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.

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.

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!

Hi Beth!!! I AM SO INCREDIBLY PROUD OF YOU!!!!! I just read you blog and it was so well written I felt I was there!!! I still can't believe I missed you message months ago when you told me about your HM. Im really sorry. I think I was not in the Spark frame of mind and just blew past most of the spark emails because I get so many on a daily basis. But if I saw one was from you I would have been so happy to have received it. Especially to congratulate you in you HUGE accomplishment!!!!!

Training really does become a huge part of your life...doesn't it? Its just wonderful to have that goal to work towards. The HM is just the reward!!! Especially the bling at the end!!! Meeting up with your BFF here from Spark must have been so AMAZING!!!!! Believe me...I can totally relate!!!!! It make it all worth it doesn't it??? All the hard work!!!! And then to see each other face to face...there is nothing like it!!! :)

So we are all good here. Having a nice summer. I don't know if you saw my blog but I've been trying to get back into running after tearing ligaments in my ankle. Its been rough getting back to it. I fell this winter when I ran outside the day after a snowstorm...I was training for a race. UGH....it's been frustrating!!! My endurance has been at a zero!!!

The kids are getting big!!! Zach is going into tenth grade. He is is 6ft tall. Yes...he is always sprouting!!! Alyssa is going into sixth. I can't believe how big your kids are getting!!!!! I can't believe that Carly is already about 18 months?????? Where ever does the time go?????? And Preston is starting school...WOW!!!!!! And you have a SENIOR???? emoticon emoticon emoticon See I'm crying!!!!! It is hard to believe that its been 4 years now that we have been coming to Spark. You much more consistent than me. You are GOOD!!!!!! I haven't played tennis in so long!!!! Running took up all my time and I got a good group of friends to run with. Running just gives me such a great outlet...except of late...my frustration!!! Its a love hate relationship. I hate it when I'm doing it,,,love it when I'm done emoticon

Once again I am SOOOOOO proud of you!!!! I am beaming from ear to ear emoticon Its so good to be in touch with you again!!!!!
