Welcome to my Spark-Page! I'm glad you've decided to take the time to come visit with me.

I'm a 45 yr old, work-at-home Mom of 2 girls, Ages 13 & 10 yrs old, married for 18 years and struggled with eating healthy and exercising regularly most of my life. I know I need to live a healthy life. I currently am not healthy. I lack energy and motivation. I don't eat properly (skipping meals and catching up later is not a good thing.) I have digestive issues. I've NEVER had digestive issues in my entire life. I want to feel good. I want to look good in my clothes; not frumpy, like I do now.

I have maintained an exercise routine in the past. But when I fall off the wagon, I fall HARD. And usually the reason I fall off the healthy eating/exercise wagon is because I have to take the focus off of me and focus more on other things . I am not good at 'juggling' I guess. I must LEARN to incorporate my exercise & healthy eating into the times that get extra stressful for me.

Eating healthier, exercising and focusing on my goals must be made a priority in my life . Motivation is a key factor for me as well, so I look to you, my Spark-mates for help in this area. I know I am responsible for getting FIT & LEAN....no one else can do it for me, however, I know that encouragement from others that are going through the same thing will help me along this journey. I hope to make blogging here on SP more of a priority. Getting out my feelings and sharing my triumphs and struggles with others will help me understand myself better.

Thanks for reading about me and feel free to add me as a Spark friend! Best Wishes for a healthier YOU!

I believe losing weight has a lot to do with your attitude and your mindset. When I am not focusing on what I want to accomplish and just 'let' myself eat whatever, that is how I end up out of control all over again.

    Hello Motivated Momma!

    Follow Your Dream
    by: Amanda Bradley

    Follow your dream.
    Take one step at a time and don't settle for less,
    Just continue to climb.
    Follow your dream.
    If you stumble, don't stop and lose sight of your goal
    Press to the top.
    For only on top can we see the whole view,
    Can we see what we've done and what we can do;
    Can we then have the vision to seek something new,
    Press on.
    Follow your dream.

    Have a truly great day my Spark-tastic friend!
