Here's To Health!

Hi, everyone. I am a blues singer from Boston, MA, and I'm grateful I get to do what I love...and be paid for it to boot! Music is my religion and the center of my world. It keeps me going on good days, bad days and in between. I can't imagine my life without it. I'm all about finding the right balance of good food, exercise, sleep, wellness and peace. I am here on SparkPeople so that I have a support system in place to help me focus on and achieve my goals, get encouragement, connect with ...

Fitness Minutes: 28,971

My Goals:
Current Goals:

1) Complete a "century" bike ride (100 miles) during the Century Cycling Challenge at my gym which happens from Apr. 7-May 4. Deadline: by May 4, 2014

2) Get into the "healthy" weight range for my height (5'3") which would be 104-141 lbs. Deadline: by June 25, 2014.

3) Hit my goal weight of 130 lbs by my 39th birthday. Deadline: by August 24, 2014

4) Wear a figure flattering bathing suit this summer & go swimming. Deadline: by August 31, 2014


My Program:
1. Strength training at least 3 days/week.

2. Heart pumping cardio/interval training at least 2 days/week.

3. Walk, bike or combo walking/biking at least 5 miles/day, 5x/week. Separate from cardio/interval training.

4. Eat real food & choose the healthy route most of the time. Live the 80-20 rule: "Because while you should always aim to eat healthy most of the time, aiming for about 80% of the time gives you that wiggle room every sane person needs to still enjoy themselves."

5. Read inspirational stories from other Spark members to stay motivated.

6. Blog about how my health/fitness journey is going.



Personal Information:
I'm a blues singer from Cambridge, MA. I am very lucky to be able to pursue my passion in life (music). I love to bike and I use my bike as my primary mode of transport. I enjoy good food/wine as well as cooking for friends and family. I believe in the law of attraction and that positivity attracts positive results. I consider myself a student in the school of life and enjoy learning something new each day.

"The past doesn't define you, your present does.
It's okay to create a vision of the future because it affects your behavior in the "now," but don't dwell on past mistakes.
Learn from them and focus those lessons in the moment. That’s where change can really happen."
-Jillian Michaels

Yeah, it was a lot of fun :) I like Nashville fairly well. My husband and I moved here last July so I could attend Middle TN State (they have an AWESOME music and audio program so I am thrilled to have gotten in... though I'm still working on getting in the audio program as I was accepted for music). Well that, and my husband is a musician and a writer and let's face it... there was nothing for him in podunk Southern IL where we came from :)

I'll have to think about things to do around here. We haven't gotten out a whole lot due to school and work, etc but I know there are lots of neat places to check out... Obviously Broadway where all the Honkey Tonks are (pretty sure none of these places have covers either so that's nice). Bicentennial Park is cool and there is an exact replica of the Parthanon there (and a big farmer's market which is DEFINITELY worth checking out in the spring/summer). I'll keep thinking and let you know.

Thanks for the add! I am a singer as well, though I am not fortunate enough to make money at it (yet!!!). I am going to school for audio engineering with a music minor. I have my associates in vocal performance though. I think it's just wonderful that you get to live your dreams :) Here's to reaching your goals and living the dream everyday!
