What you think is what you become. Be beautiful. Be kind. Be radiant. Be love.


About me:

I live in a beautiful city of SW Ontario, 5 minute-walk to the beautiful Thames River.

Zumba Instructor( & addict :)) ), Yoga lover, fitness addict, health foods addict :)).

********Portion below needs serious updates! Was written in 2007-2008!********

I keep daily track of micro and macro nutrients:
- I count carbs, fats and protein;
- I make sure I get the minimum of 23 g of fiber daily
- keep the saturated fats under 11%
- keep cholesterol intake under 240 mg
- keep sodium intake under 2400 mg
- make sure to get all other essential nutrients

Love to dance (started Middle Eastern Dances 4 years ago, currently performing with a local dance troupe), love to keep myself busy (reading, running, hiking, camping, doing hemp stuff, making gemstone jewelry, and much more), love practicing and teaching Reiki.

Mother to a 8 year-old son, wife and best friend to a wonderful man, owner and friend of a beautiful German Shepherd.

Started being a loser :))) about 3 years ago, reached my healthy weight. I'm trying to go even further - now I'm aiming in losing body fat instead of just pounds (my BMI is 21.5 - normal range being 18.5 - 24.9).

Seemed like my motivation was playing tricks on me, going up and down a lot, so I miraculously discovered SP and got my boost for keeping on going 'till reaching my goal!

******I'm a 5'8''
*******HOW did I get down FROM a 29.8% BF - 175 lb, size 14:
- followed the food pyramid and practiced the equilibrium theory
- started running
- stayed in the typical percentages of macronutriens:
**Typical Percentages: Fat 20-35%, Carbohydrates 45-65%, and Protein 10-35%.**
- kept track of macro & micro nutrients on a rigorous daily basis
- quit smoking (January 2005, when I started losing)

******* I am not a huge fan of low carbing for weight loss, I'm low-carb-ing NOW because I reached my happy and healthy weight and I'm working on getting down my BF% in the athletic range.

Remember: HARD WORK PAYS OFF, even though it may take a while, even though sometimes it seems like we're going nowhere, sooner or later... hard work always and always and always pays off!!!!

    “Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.” ~ Thomas A. Edison

    “Everything comes to him who hustles while he waits.” ~ Thomas A. Edison

    “When you have exhausted all possibilities, remember this – you haven’t.” ~ Thomas A. Edison
