When everything feels like an uphill struggle, just think of the view from the top.

When you see a person on a mountain top, just remember they did not fall there!

"If hungry ain't the problem, food won't fix it. Sucks...but it's true." (Well said, CARTOONB)

Thanks SparkPeople for getting me off the endless yo-yo rollercoaster. 8+ years and counting.

I started my SparkJourney in March 2007 when I was 10 lbs away from my goal weight.

Thanks SparkPeople for getting me off the endless yo-yo rollercoaster. 8+ years and counting.

I started my SparkJourney in March 2007 when I was 10 lbs away from my goal weight.

Prior to finding SP I had lost 30 lbs doing WW online but was unable to lose the last 10.

After 6 years of fine-tuning, trial and error I finally reached my ultimate weight goal in early 2013, and am now maintaining within a +/- 3% radius.

I'm hanging out and hanging in, still fine-tuning as I go. Maintenance does not mean you have it all figured out...

In the spring of 2012 I rediscovered hiking. It has become my passion. Okay, I'm obsessed. There is peace on the trail. It soothes my soul. And it builds some really mean leg muscle :)

Fitness Minutes: 73,266

My Goals:
1. Better nutrition: More veggies, more fruit, more whole foods, more water. It continues to be a challenge.

2. Improving my strength, endurance, and flexibility with continued regular workouts.

3. Achieving balance: Mind, body, and soul.

My Program:
1. Nutrition:
Focus will be on HYDRATION.
I'm terrible with water. Goal is 40 oz. a day. That's 5 cups. Even I should be able to do this.

2. Fitness:
Love to hike. You'll find me on the trail somewhere every weekend.

My favorite workout during the week is Zumba and/or kickboxing.

I also enjoy yoga to balance it all out.

3. Balance:
Aiming for at least 7 hours of sleep every night.

When are you flying to Frankfurt? I'm flying there in 10 days [Sept 9] from LAX on Lufthansa - I'd love to hear more about your plans. I'll be posting a couple of blogs to let people know what I'm planning, just in case someone from SP is going to be in the same place at the same time ;-)

Whether we run into each other in Germany or not, have a safe flight!!

“CHANGE: Don’t just talk about it, go out there and do it.
Don’t just meditate about it, go out there and create it.
Don’t just pray about it, go out there and take action; participate in the answering of your own prayer.
If you want change, get out there and live it."
-Steve Maraboli

Mesa Verde in Colorado was amazing... we enjoyed the trip a lot and Colorado is a great state... Maybe next time we will hit California... who knows. Have a good day!
