Hi! I'm Janey. My purpose here is to share about the positive new direction my life is taking through good nutrition and exercise. I have always been passionate about saving money around the house, especially when feeding my family. I hope you will enjoy sharing some of the best things I have learned on my journey!

My vision is to be a great example of heart healthy living.
I love that my DH, Dave and I enjoy exercising together. I continue to add running events to my fitness schedule.
My short term goal is to reach my adult lifetime achievement weight by 5/31/2014.

My last "five pound bag of potatoes" weight, has been hanging on for a good 15 years. This is it! Time to go. It has taken two years and counting, but I will get my Belly button back! Woo Hoo!

I thank SP daily for what we have accomplished nutritionally. The changes we are making are adding quality and happiness to our lives. Who knew that eating healthy and exercising could be so fun?!!

My main Health goal has been to focus on my own choices and quietly go about my wellness business.
The true joy in my Spark Journey has been every time a family member or friend asks about healthy choices for thier own lives.

Janey, You have made such a difference in my life. Your consistent encouragement and cheering us on has been a life saver.

I live on the Olypic Peninsula in Washington State, so if your travels bring you this way, please contact me so I can be your personal tour guide to our lovely area. It would be a true pleasure to meet you "live" and give you a big hug for all you have done for our team!

Happy trails to you! Sandy
