Hey everyone, I'm Christina, or some call me Chris, Chrissy or just Christina. I'm a software developer in the DFW area. I sit on my butt a lot since I am at a computer all day. I've been on spark a long time, but only recently have I become serious about getting healthy again. I keep doing well, then falling off the healthy track, then back on again. It's making progress take way too long.

I wear pink often, in honor of my mum who passed away on October 26, 2015, after battling inflammatory breast cancer for 18 months. She was the strongest woman I've ever known, and she stayed strong until her last breath. I will do anything I can to honor my role model and woman of whom I owe everything to. This year I will get my first mammogram, making sure to get tested, do weekly self exams, and get as healthy as I can. I'm now at risk, and my risk jumps up because I'm over the age of 30 and never been able to have a child. Apparently you get a 50% more likely chance to get breast cancer if you don't/can't have babies...yay me. I'm an advocate for helping others any way I can. So if you have questions about breast cancer, don't be afraid to hit me up.

    Thank you for commenting on my blog. I see that we have something in common (inability to have children). Congratulations on your weight loss so far! emoticon

    Multi-talented in a man's world....can I be you? emoticon Thanks so much for your post on my blog. My car's almost 13 years old, I understand things are gonna start going bad...but it just seems like one right after another. This time there's 1+ leaks in the coolant hoses/ system- it's currently sitting at the shop, which they may or may not get to today, and have no clue if those are replacement items they typically have on hand or not, etc... (Sometimes I hate men.) Had looked about 6 months ago at getting a new one and my procrastination skills and letting go of money prevented that...but yeah it's time. Would like a small SUV next- just researching this morning I found the Mazda CX-5, Jeep Renegade and Subaru Crostrek (which I've already drove and like) are finding their ways to the tops of my list. (Wants- smaller as I'm used to a small sports car as is, drives well- good suspension, and gets around in the Winter - I'm pretty simple!)

    Preferences to these and/or what brands might be better? I appreciate your time and opinions/help in advance! emoticon ~S
