I'm a 40-year-old mother of two (a 9-year-old and a 7-year-old) and want to lose 10 pounds and live a more consistently healthy lifestyle. (Fitting into my old jeans won't hurt, either!)

I have always had a problem with yo-yoing between a healthy lifestyle and a very unhealthy lifestyle, so I want to create more balance and consistency in my life so I don't "fall off the wagon" during stressful times.

I read a really motivating comment the other day that people who successfully create a healthy life for themselves think of exercise as something that they MUST do, rather than something that they SHOULD to do. I want to make sure that I stay on track and prioritize my health and self-care, despite any obstacles or challenges.

I just recently took up running, and I'd love to speak with other runners. I'm also interested in finding online buddies to share my journey and provide inspiration to each other as we strive to meet our goals.

Fitness Minutes: 165

My Goals:
My goals are: to lose 5 more pounds by July 1, to run another 5K in the Fall (and run the entire thing this time!), and to continue to drink more water every day. Longer-term, I'd like to get down to 125 by the end of the year.

My Program:
10 minutes of walking with the kids every day, 2 30-min cardio sessions 2 days/week (running or other), strength training 2 x week, water every day. Long run once a week on Saturdays.

Personal Information:
My name is Lisa and I live in West Dundee, IL. I have two kids and work full-time as the owner of a web development firm. I am also a Stampin' Up demonstrator, but I mainly do that for fun and because I'm ADDICTED to stamping!

    HI my name is Lesa too, Welcome to Spark. I just rejoined last week. You seem to be in the same situation I am in. I want to loose about 15 lbs and get back into my size 7. I have been up and down for over 10 years now. I recently turned 40.. It was a difficult birthday. I put you on my spark page as a friend, so we can stay in touch. Good luck, Lesa
