I wanted to update my page since it has been over a year since I have started my Adventure at Sparkpeople.

This has been the most awesome and crazy journey I have ever taken in my life. I have made goals and succeeded at many of them, learned so much about myself, and discovered that even failure can be something used for my good.

I wanted to update my page since it has been over a year since I have started my Adventure at Sparkpeople.

This has been the most awesome and crazy journey I have ever taken in my life. I have made goals and succeeded at many of them, learned so much about myself, and discovered that even failure can be something used for my good.

Now that I have reached my goal I want to continue to encourage others with their own adventure. I want to give back to those who have helped me along the way and become someone who can also help others. I'm not always good at doing that, but I hope to become better.

My words of advice right now to others is that it is possible, and it is worth it!

My Goals:
In the beginning, my goal was to loose weight in a proper and healthy way. I wanted to become more educated about how to do this and use that education to better myself. Now that I have reached my weight goal I have a whole new set of goals.

1. I want to build up my muscles and become stronger.

2. I want to maintain a good healthy weight and discover new things to incorporate into my new lifestyle.

3. I want to show to my family and friends that this hasn't been a diet, but that it is a new lifestyle and a new me.

4. To continue to believe in myself and have that spread out into the rest of my life as well.

5. To try new things and make this a continuing adventure!

My Program:
I have been and are continuing to count my calories using Spark. For me, that really has been one of the keys to reaching my goals.

I am trying a lot of different types of cardio that I haven't tried before. I had to give up karate due to injury, but I'm okay with that and I keep trying new things!

Cardio is usually at least 3 to 4 times a week. I am planning on getting together with my sister Jacinda who is a personal trainer and setting up a weight training plan that I can do 2 to 3 times a week.

Personal Information:
I am single and live in Utah. I have been overweight for most of my life, so I am very grateful to Sparkpeople for helping to educate me in taking control of my health. I am grateful to my sister Jacinda for introducing me to Spark and helping me all along the way!
I love learning and trying new things, and I love working with my sisters. They inspire me to new heights!

Other Information:
In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility. - Eleanor Roosevelt

If you always put limit on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them. - Bruce Lee

"The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails."William Arthur Ward
