Throughout this journey, I've realized that I need help and motivation from others to help me be successful. I lost 24 pounds in 2009 but gained almost all of it back, I lost 29 pounds in 2012 but gained most of if back, and I lost 19 pounds in 2013 and gained it all back - I ...

Fitness Minutes: 11,335

My Goals:
* I will only weigh myself once a week.

* I will unwind every day (as in myofascial release).

My Program:
I am using the Nutrition Tracker and Fitness Tracker regularly.

I'm participating more in SparkTeams for support, inspiration and motivation.

I'm doing various exercise DVDs (kickboxing, cardio dance). I enjoy power walking to some energetic tunes. I also enjoy the occasional aerobic dance class. I love swimming when I can find a pool. I also love kayaking, but I sadly only do it about once a year - I want to increase that.

I enjoy restorative yoga and want to fit it in more.

I practice almost daily self myofascial release, it's amazing!

Personal Information:
I'm single, 38, no children, no pets now (though I love them and had a dog for several years). I live in New York City.

I love to travel. I'd like to be more physically fit so I can be more active on vacations.

I love all things Disney. I like to scrapbook. I love almost all kinds of music.

Other Information:

~~~Live & Laugh~~~
Laugh your heart out,
Dance in the rain.
Cherish the moment
Ignore the pain.
Live, laugh, love,
Forgive & forget
Life's too short to be
Living with regrets.

Thought I'd stop by with a smile emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
And brighten up your Wednesday for awhile. emoticon emoticon emoticon
~~~HAPPY WEDNESDAY~~~
