helenChristine's exercise and eating journey

Hi! I'm Helen.
I am enjoying being a Turquoise Titan here on Spark (thus my turquoise background).

I have a wonderful husband and 5 children. Each one has a completely different personality and different stengths and weaknesses, so they keep me hopping, trying to parent them all in their own ways... We live in NJ and we homeschool. I was born in Brazil to missionary parents and went to high school and college in Wisconsin. I studied Music Therapy in college and then ...
Hi! I'm Helen.
I am enjoying being a Turquoise Titan here on Spark (thus my turquoise background).

I have a wonderful husband and 5 children. Each one has a completely different personality and different stengths and weaknesses, so they keep me hopping, trying to parent them all in their own ways... We live in NJ and we homeschool. I was born in Brazil to missionary parents and went to high school and college in Wisconsin. I studied Music Therapy in college and then worked with Alzheimer's patients for 5 years before having children.

I am doing the Gabriel Method of weight loss, starting March 2014. I also enjoy riding the exercise bike and doing the Leslie Sansone walk at home videos.

I try to follow the flylady's advice in decluttering and cleaning my home.

I am allergic to pesticides, and get nasty hives from them. The hives only come out when I'm feeling stressed and then take months to go away. I get them around every holiday, when school starts in September, and after vacations. Taking extra vitamin c's has upped my immunity and helped me get the hives under control.

JES' FRIDAY FOCUS

If the WHOLE world was blind..
How many people would YOU truly impress?
- - UNKNOWN - -


Always remember that it's what's on the inside that matters the MOST!! You can be the most attractive or fittest person in the entire room but good looks alone can never make up for an ugly soul or a cold hear!! Eventually we all get old, we all grow wrinkly & we all get gray - - Remember to nourish more than just your body on this journey to better health!! A good heart, a beautiful mind & a caring soul will NEVER go out of style!!!

Stay Positive, Stay Focused, Change IS Coming,

Jes
