EDIT 7-31-11: I just realized that I hadn't updated my introduction section since before I got married last October! My overall reasons for SparkPeople haven't changed - establishing healthy habits. But when I joined SP, I was a single woman rebuilding my life after divorce. Now, I'm married and expecting my first baby in 2 to 3 weeks. I'm realizing that I'll need support in different areas now than I did when I joined!

Really, I'm just trying to be more healthy. I've never been particularly coordinated, and I've been more focused on my brain than my body. A couple years ago, I realized that in order for my brain to be healthy, my body had to be healthy too. So, I'm taking a wholistic approach. Mind, body, spirit, if you will.

I want to be comfortable in my own skin, have energy, feel happy and balanced, and not regret my life.

Hi, hon! I have been SOOO SLOOOW catching up on my "thank yous"... but I try hard not to forget! I'm grateful for the lovely Valentine SparkGoodie that you left on my SparkPage. I hope you had a lovely Valentine's Day -- I sure did!

It's been such a pleasure and an honor to have you on the SparkTarot! team. I hope all your SparkDreams are in the process of coming true!

Hello again! I know I just dropped off a SparkGoodie for you, but I wanted to visit your SparkPage as well, and learn a little more about you.

I enjoyed browsing your photo gallery. You're very photogenic! I loved the picture of you at the St. Louis museum. I've never been to that museum myself, but my parents took my kids there once, and I have some pictures of them crawling through that same "tunnel".

I hope you'll join us on the SparkTarot! team forums soon... we'd love to hear about how your healthy journey is progressing.

May all your SparkDreams come true!

Glad you like Zen Habits! I have read that blog for over a year now, and really love it.

I am in a much better state mentally now, that I was when I wrote my last blog!! Thanks to all my lovely Spark friends, I got out of that funk pretty quickly :) This has been a great month so far, and I just ran my first 5k today - woohoo!

How is the wedding planning going??
