Reflections of Me...

Hello from MEDFORD, OREGON. My first look at SPARK was Sept 2012 and I've been getting healthier ever since. It's been a slow but steady journey while managing both health and self challenges, but I've come a long way with the help of my SPARK PLAN and SPARK FRIENDs. I've become more self motivated and more self accepting. I'm taking more risks and I've learned to be more assertive in my own beliefs in order to be more successful in my new way of life.

SparkPoints: 94,441

Fitness Minutes: 57,786

My Goals:
My goal is to be the best me I can be for myself, my family and my GOD.

This year my goals include: Doing more for me, taking risks, accepting change and reaching out.

All these things are necessary for me to loose the last 50-60 lbs.

My Program:
My program involves: tracking my moves with a FITBIT Zip and my nutrition with SPARK, running with PODRunner and learning to try new exercise moves.

I don't believe in FAD DIETS and don't like pills or medications.

I believe everything is good - in moderation - so nothing is totally off limits.

I generally follow a 80/20 plan for a healthier lifestyle-- 80-90% of the time I'm focused on healthy nutrition and ways so that 10-20% of the time I can enjoy life without worrying about numbers. (Life happens and this way I don't have any guilt over it 8)

Personal Information:
Residing in Medford, Oregon.
Born in Kansas and raised all over -- to include Maryland, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Washington and Germany

I'm a US Army veteran and served most of my time in South Korea.

I love my family -- to include 1 husband and 1 cat, 2 children and 3 grandchildren. I love to craft and learn new types of crafts (yarn and thread types mostly, but I also have an interest in paper and children crafts). I work in a high stress, ever changing environment. I want to get into better shape so I can keep up with the wee ones 8)


Other Information:
I like WInnie the Pooh and really am a kid at heart!

There is no chance, no destiny, no fate, that can hinder or control the firm resolve of a determined soul. ~Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Thank you, I'm so glad I'm not burdening anyone, I really appreciate it. I hope you have a wonderful week and things go exactly as you plan.

Always remember that smile and never forget to thank someone at least once.

Have a beautiful Friday. emoticon
