Hello! Thank you so much for visiting my SparkPage. I turned 40 in 2009 so I want to make sure I'm as healthy as I can be. I need to make good food choices and exercise regularly.

Member Since: 5/5/2008

Fitness Minutes: 77,443

My Goals:
My goal is to get down to 140 pounds. I saved a pair of acid-washed jeans (circa 1988) and I would LOVE to get into them--not necessarily wear them in public--just to get into them would be awesome.

I've completed seven half-marathons and I'm going to complete my first full marathon on May 1, 2011 in Lincoln, NE.

My Program:
Regarding exercise--I find that I really have to change things up a bit every so often. If I get bored, I lose interest and don't do it. In 2008, I took four eight-week sessions of boot camp at my gym. That "sparked" my running passion and I love hot yoga and kettlebells. Not sure what's next!

I aim for eight glasses of water a day and at least five servings of fruits/vegetables, too.

    So sorry to hear about your injury. emoticon Hope you are able to run again soon. Have you been doing the hot yoga a lot?? It sure sounds like it would be nice in the winter (although it has been such a warm winter this year!! emoticon )

    The corn allergy is a pain. I think I will really be crying when corn on the cob season comes around!! If I avoid corn, popcorn, corn starch & corn meal, I seem to be okay. So far I haven't been affected by HFCS or dextrose or anything like that. I am trying to gradually cut all of it though (way hard!!)

    Thanks for checking in on me!! emoticon
