On my 47th birthday, I made a commitment to give myself the gift of a new body. Starting with a total of fifty pounds total to lose, I made it to the halfway point on June 25, 2010. I am working towards being a vibrant, active, fit, and inspiring mom to my 7 year old daughter, and an energetic and sexy wife to my husband!

Two of my passions in life are my family, and my music. I am a singer/songwriter of "Posi" or positive music, a new, emerging genre of music of which I'm a huge fan. Search for "The JaJa's" on facebook and friend me for free streaming!

My third and most recent passion in life is ROLLERSKATING! Yes, you heard it right! My daughter and I signed up for skating lessons together (see pic at left). Did you know you can burn 700-1500 calories per session? We are having a blast. I'm learning how to skate backwards!!!

Anyway, enough about me! Thanks for stopping by, please check out my blogs, would love to see your comments on any criss-cross effects you've seen pop up in your life from reading The Spark, and don't be surprised if your story inspires a song!!!

Blessings,
Barb

    Barb, I think it's the time of year we just need to try that much harder to stay focused. So long as we make it through the holidays in enough of a groove that we're able to go at it full speed ahead come the new year, I think we'll be okay. We just can't get that far astray that we don't make it back into the fold. Having a basement workout room is exciting! I bet that helps a lot with your goals. P90X, huh? I plan to start a weight training program and having the P90X master (Jasper) be my trainer.

    But something you said in particular caught my eye:

    "My body WILL be unrecognizable by my 48th birthday in May."

    My 48th birthday is in May. May 20, to be exact. When is yours? I'm thinking I need to renew my commitment and get some solid fitness goals on the table. A weekly mileage goal, along with consistent weight training, and I'm guessing I can join you in being unrecognizable.

    Yep, you and I have a game of inspiration pong going. I love it!
