I'm Yvette :) I have finally made it to a point in life where I know that if I don't change things now I will forever be unhappy, unhealthy and on a continual road to destruction....somethings got to give...that something is me. This is my attempt at taking the right steps to get the ball rolling. This is my embark on a new adventure in life...yarrrr me hartys!

Member Since: 5/1/2009

Fitness Minutes: 2,220

My Goals:
I need to take off about another 50 pounds and tone tone tone!!!!

My Program:
Eath right, exercise! It's that simple! I cut out refined sugar, fast food, anything that is obvious garbage and started moving my butt!!! Love zumba and joggin!

Life is good and only getting better! I have a wonderful boyfriend that is so supportive, and two border collies that loooove our walks and runs!

Personal Information:
As most people say...I never really know what to say about myself. I'm me. Simply put. There really is nobody else out there like me...so I guess I"m speshel"! I'm kind of a dork...but in the cool way. I try to do my part to make the world a nicer place...be it smiling at a sad face, recycling EVERYTHING, or just enjoying nature. I see the beauty of the world in the midst of a mess, I see the kindness in society in times of hatred and wrath, I notice the simple things that are so amazing in a world of "keeping up with the Jones's". Our time here is short...I think it's very important to deeply appreciate the wonders that surround us while we can. In a world full of suffering I see no reason to complain but rather to give an ear to bend, a hand to help, or a good word to someone...all this complaining and lallygagging is only going to make matters worse people.

Other Information:
I'm a photographer. I love adventure & surprise. Road trips & nature trails. Fishing & festivals. Camping & laughing. Singing & dancing. Camp fires & stars. Black cherry Jello & ethnic food. I love The color green on spring mornings & the the smell of the air just before it rains. I'm content being who I am most of the time, happy to just be alive & make others laugh. I tend to be quite sarcastic & a bit of a smart ass-but I can totally take what I dish. I'm a Scorpio, I have a sting. I'm lucky enough to have been RE-united with my soul mate and true love, a love that most people don't get to experience in life. The glass is half full and each day is a gift. I love comedy & action movies, slapstick humor, good documentaries, the occasional chick flick & fairy tails.

I dislike douche bags that wear their sun visors backwards & upside down (which I assume in that case it would be a sun CATCHER???), people that sag their pants, misspelling words because it's "cool", litter bugs,

    LOL!!! I definitely need a kick in the patoot. I'm just getting back together. I had all kinds of crazy stuff this year but now that I'm back in school & getting myself together, I'm working on this again.
