Hi there. I am Kat, a 34 year old mother of 2 great kids.
My DBF says I am having a mid-life crisis. Maybe he is right but that is ok as long as the changes I am making are for the better. Or for the fun of it (hair).
Home Body Fat Test from healthcentral.com

I am:
25.5% fat that equals (a "normal healthy Caucasian is 22%)
42.8 pounds of fat
125.2 pounds of muscle
I guess my bones, organs and fluids don't weigh anything.


8-10 pound Mini Challange

Must do all three EVERYDAY or have to restart the challange!

Drink half my weight in oz of water
Exercise for at least 30 minutes a day
Do 3 strength exercises everyday

9/3 Done / Done / Done



Marathon in a month: 8-25-9-24
26.2 Miles / 9.49 miles done 36%

marathon in a month: complete with 18 days to spare
75 Miles In May Complete! 100.53!!!!!!

100 Miles in June 100/76.52 - yeah not too happy about missing that goal. I will do better in July

100 Miles in July 100/105.06
My Ultimate Goal

Isn't that what we all want? I went a step further and made a list of the mini goals that will get me to the main goal. I have seen so many people on Spark use this and think about the sense of accomplishment they get when they can check one off. So here is my list. I deffinatly have put an emphasis on HEALTHY here because Happy is a little harder to define.

1. Educate myself about nutrition
2. Feed myself and the family "cleaner"
3. Plan complete menus not just dinner
4. Learn to really track my meals (umm hello Spark)
5. Eat more veges and fruit- working on it
6. Drink more water - DONE
7. Cut soda from my fridge - DONE
8. Cut soda from my life (no more grabbing one while out)- back sliding on this eeekkkk
9. Remember Green tea when I am looking for something other than water- Going well
10. Cut 1 cup of morning coffee.- Dont miss it
11. Cut all coffee (wahhh do I gotta???)
12. Finish C25K program
13. Run a 5K this year
14. Strength train at least 3 x week
15. Build up to walking 5+ miles on days I don't run
16. Go back to Flylady to get my house and life organized- back and I LOVE HER
17. Dont break the bank with my goals, learn to live on less.
19. Study for small business
20. Find balance in my life.

I think this is a good start. Some items will take time of course, what else do I have?

I have a lot of work to do.

    I found this poem and I thought you might like it emoticon

    Today You Can
    by Catherine Pulsifer

    Today you can choose to count your blessings
    or you can count your troubles.
    Today you can live each moment
    or you can put in time.
    Today you can take action towards your goals
    or you can procrastinate.
    Today you can plan for the future
    or you can regret the past.

    Today you can learn one new thing
    or you can stay the same.
    Today you can seek possibilities
    or you can overwhelm yourself with the impossible.

    Today you can continue to move forward
    or you can quit.
    Today you can take steps towards resolving your challenges
    or you can procrastinate.

    You see today the choices are up to you
    in deciding what you do today.
