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.

SOME WEDNESDAY WISDOM

"There is NO passion to be found in SETTLING
for a life that is LESS than the one you are CAPABLE of living."

- - NELSON MANDELLA - -


Sweetheart,

Never settle for less than EXACTLY what you want out of life!
Let your DREAMS be BIGGER than anything you may FEAR!
Let your ACTIONS speak LOUDER than your WORDS!
Don't be afraid of failing - - Be afraid of NEVER daring to try!
You DESERVE to live your life to it's fullest capacity!
YOU are WORTH the time, the energy & the effort!
You CAN & WILL do this!! I believe in YOU:)

Stay Positive,

Jes
