SparkPoints: 30,377

Fitness Minutes: 36,167

My Goals:
My goal is to reach 135lbs. The last time I was at that weight, I had so much more energy. I'm going to college now and plan to look for a new career in the next few years. No one wants to hire someone who is unhealthy. I need to be at my best for me and my family.

My Program:
So far, I've learned to track my calories in, which is great. I also walk on my treadmill 30 minutes everyday and stretch afterward. I am learning to incorporate strength training into my week. And the daily challenges from the groups help keep up the motivation to try something new.

Personal Information:
Grew up in Biloxi, Ms. in a real cajun family. Food was an important part of family gatherings and some of my fondest memories are of being in the kitchen with my grandmother and great-aunt.

Other Information:

Thanks for commenting on my blog about comfort food. I hope the procedure went well and is healing properly. I'm sure that I would do exactly the same thing you have done if for some reason I couldn't exercise. Hopefully you will be back at full strength very soon. emoticon

I believe there were 13 seasons of Morse, starting in 1987. Some years, though, there were only 1 or 2 episodes, others had 3, 4 or 5 episodes.

The Inspector Morse books are great too, if you have a library nearby.

Hello Jujuelliott,,,, Just a note to thank you for your kind comments,,,,,,,, I hope that the pain that you are feeling is lessening,,,,,, there is a light at the end of the tunnel.......... the pain I was feeling was because I am going through a divorce after 23 years of marriage and 3 kids........ really is a kick in the ass,,,,,,,, but realizing that it is just time that I take care of me and create the life that I want.....for myself and my children. Life just brings changes and we have to "go with the flow" sometimes. Thank you for remembering me and for the encouraging words.......... Hope you are feeling better emoticon

PS. Thank you so much for the goodie,,,,,, yes Life is something to celebrate!

I can relate. We had to get rid of our second car and cable to be able to afford the eat as clean as we do and we still have to buy some things from the grocery store because we run out of money towards the end of the month. I know I will definitely have to ease up on my rules come winter. Good luck to you. Sounds like you are on the right path :)
