My Goals:
"I want to have a "Bowflex Body" by the time I'm fifty!"

This started out as kind-of a joke, but since I first said it, it's become my Mantra - not BowFlex specifically...but fit and healthy nonetheless using whatever tools do the job!

My Program:

Four 200-calorie mini-meals at 9a, 11a, 1p and 3p, a 500-calorie dinner at 5p and a 100-calorie snack at 7p. I aim to eat as many whole foods as is practical including lots of fruits and veggies!

Plenty of water!

Personal Information:
I'm a native Buckeye and a fairly recent transplant to Jersey. I have a husband of more than a decade, two wonderful children, two rescue pups, a rescue kitty and one REALLY WICKED GARDEN!

Other Information:
A smooth sea never made a skillful mariner!

Vivir con miedo, es como vivir a medias!

Welcome! If you need a shoulder, a friend or a virtual coffee at some point, drop by and say hello! I've just celebrated my SP ten month anniversary and am amazed at the absolutely incredible amount of support I've received. This is a fabulous site and you will be astounded at what you get out of it if you give it your all.

To celebrate your arrival at SP in this Summer season, I would like to wish you a everlasting renewal of energy and passion, for this is a time to celebrate the great potential you possess. May the sun shine upon you and fire up your heart to reach all of your goals and find joy in yourself and the world around you. Whatever battles you are fighting, whatever stresses may come your way, may you find energy, confidence, vitality and strength. This is the time to shine bright and show the world how beautiful you are. Embrace the summer-lit brilliance of each day and you will create a new life where all your wildest dreams come true. ~ Michelle
