My Goals:
Light a fire under myself and really commit to exercising 5 to 6 hours per week.

on the average- 4x's per week in Spin class- Love it! 3x per week-Aqua classes ...water aerobics.- the instructor pushes us to do more....Also -Have some DVD's for Mat Pilates, which I tried when i was on vacation & loved it... Pilates really helps with core and posture - need to start adding this in to the routine.

I am 49, 6' tall, and now 174# - a Geoscience Technician, - Some days are Vegan; others still eating meat-fish every few days, or so. love anchovies and sardines, and herring, as well as salmon!

Hypothyroidism & Menopause: a new OBGyn that specializes in Bioidentical HR Therapy put me on them on the Jan 18, 2012. This has made a huge difference in my energy, attitude, and moods- took about 2 months to kick-in.

-Feel So Much Better! Back in Feb of 2009 I was 215, and lost down to 172#, and now since June or so of this year -2010- I have gaine

My Program:
Eating the Nutritarian way, as Recommended by Dr. Fuhrman. I only feel that the day has started out right if Breakfast is a Green smoothie! The greener...the better!

Dr. Fuhrman's Highly Cruciferous Diet - It is the only thing that has worked for me, and I have tried ALL the others.

"Eating ONE big Salad Every Day is the Key." once i got this down I felt first the Salads were really they are still big...just eat a little less now...

Dr. Fuhrman’s quote: "THE SALAD IS THE MAIN COURSE." Made a sign and stuck it to the Frig just like he suggested, and it really helped!

The best is a green smoothie for breakfast with baby spinach, frozen blueberries, pomegranate Juice, and fresh orange & flax seed. Kale & Collards, and Mustard Greens work great in green spoothies too! Adding other frozen fruit like peaches or mango, and ½ avocado to change the flavor profile. The Vidalia Chop Wizard is a great time saver for dicing

Personal Information:
From Houston, Texas

Because of the amount of Cardio each week, i have only been doing 1 or 2x's per week on the weight training. Really, NOW - need to beef this up! to 3 to 4.

Walking in the park or on the beach are favorites, when it is cooler weather-.a great attitude adjustment when we can do it.

Other Information:
Happy 1st time cat owner...before this I always had dogs. so much FUN!

am grateful for good friends AND my Spark- friends here that so inspire me every day to do better than I am! Also grateful to God for good health & happiness

Hmmm...I send you a SparkGoodie, which somehow didn't make it through cyberspace - so I did it again and got a message, "Transaction Complete - Your Goodie Has Been Sent" - but it's still not there. So you either have zero, one or two goodies from me!
If none got there, the message was, Have a great weekend! lol
