Fit for Life

I am Grateful for a full, rich and Blessed life!

My husband and I have been gifted with the presence of two beautiful grand-nieces and now a grand-nephew. Great incentive to stay healthy!

I started Spark in June of 2007 (at my sister's suggestion), restarted a few times and finally became 'serious' two years later after receiving my before photo. I met goal weight in late December 2009 and as incentive and reward went to Barbados with friends. (It is so wonderful NOT ...

My husband and I have been gifted with the presence of two beautiful grand-nieces and now a grand-nephew. Great incentive to stay healthy!

I started Spark in June of 2007 (at my sister's suggestion), restarted a few times and finally became 'serious' two years later after receiving my before photo. I met goal weight in late December 2009 and as incentive and reward went to Barbados with friends. (It is so wonderful NOT having to try on bathing suits...)

I continued to lose weight, partially because I couldn't figure how to reset the nutrition tracker, partly because I increased my exercise and partly because I was not yet comfortable with my body. I lost 10 more pounds over the next 3 months, for a total of 35 pounds and settled into my 'home shape.'

I celebrated a year anniversary of my before picture 5/24/10. Since that time I've fluctuated a few pounds and maintained a healthy BMI of 19-20.

I've found great friends with amazing stories, drive, determination and accomplishments on this site, and am honored to share in their victories and setbacks however small or large.

My goal is to be 'Fit for Life', so while I remain committed to healthy eating and exercise, I've expanded my horizons to include meditation. I am thoroughly enjoying my new journey, my new friends and my new adventure into blogging.

I hope all who visit my spark page, will find this site as rewarding as I have.

Update 01.30.12: I am starting on a new fat loss and muscle gain journey and shedding 10 'holiday' pounds.

Update 03.20.12: I am ThanksGiving for the miracles in my life as I continue on my healthy journey.

Update 07.03,14: Getting the Spark back - 5 more pounds and much muscle to go...

Update 04.25.15: At home weight and settling in.

Hi, thanks for reading my blog about the recipes.

Can't wait to get more bananas to have this treat again.

Appreciate the pineapple idea for my smoothie for sweetness but, sadly, it is one of many fruits I'm unable to eat due to allergies and sensitivities. Blueberries it is, daily.

Totally with you on THIS point: small changes, consistently made over time... DO work! And I know that sugar and starch are problems for me, which is something Berkeley touts... but I'm not ready to go "whole Primarian" with her.

FYI, I started adding the flax and chia seeds to breakfast again, trying to keep myself closer to center of goal range, and trying to get to the point where I'm not as likely to have "binge-like" make up eating from having undereaten.

Hope you're having a good day... heading out to clear walks soon, as it seems to have reached the day's high, and will be dropping steadily per the weather site.
