Sparking since 2009! My journey here has seen many different nutrition and fitness programs and my weight and size has fluctuated up and down. As of right now, I'm just trying to be as healthy and fit as possible as I enter the last year of my 40's. I'm no longer looking to be a certain number on the scale, but aiming to look and feel fabulous and confident in my own skin. And to be strong and toned.
I love and enjoy fitness! I became a runner when I quit smoking in 2009. I have run numerous races including 2 Half Marathons. Currently I am easing back into running after being out 3 months with an injury.
I have really gotten into lifting weights consistently at the gym (Jim Stepponi programs). Lifting is teaching me patience, determination, discipline, and confidence. I'm excited to see where it takes me in 2017. Think *TRANSFORMATION*. That's the goal.

    “Perseverance is everything. We all stumbled when we took our first steps yet we were running sooner than we realized, and then we couldn't stay still. Why stay still now?"
    ~ Rob Lian

    "I'm not old enough to play baseball or football. I'm not eight yet. My mom told me when you start baseball, you aren't going to be able to run that fast because you had an operation. I told Mom I wouldn't need to run that fast. When I play baseball, I'll just hit them out of the park. Then I'll be able to walk."
    ~ Edward J. McGrath, J

    I'm still chugging along too. Finished my 4th Ironman. #5 is in April. I'm back at SP for tracking. I've got to get the last pounds off and need to track to get it done. I can maintain without counting, but to lose I have to be so precise!
