I am using Spark to help me maintain a healthy lifestyle, AVOID the risks of osteoporosis for small-boned people like myself and stay fit for the LONG term so I can be an energetic grandma one day! I'm looking for workout buddies for mutual motivation and encouragement to do and track our fitness minutes at least FIVE days a week. If you're interested, add me as a friend so I can add you back for motivation and support! I focus on toning up and I would like to gain five pounds of muscle this year. Member of lifetime fitness.

My Goals:
Life is great!! I see things from a positive angle, I love people and I love myself too. My goals are to maintain an organized and healthy lifestyle both inside and outside, to be a blessing to others as best I can, to gain muscle mass/strength, improve posture, drink more water and maintain overall well being.

My Program:
I am doing yoga and strength exercises right now wit (no cardio or plyo or high impact for now as I recently had a baby). I have lost all my baby weight because I nursed for eight months (which burns 500 calories a day) so now I'm just working on toning up and increasing strength and flexibility and slowly adding stamina. I am currently holding off on high impact due to a strong vagal response (history of fainting / sudden loss of blood pressure). I have to build up my strength again and then slowly ease back into cardio. I would like to start cardio again in 2014. After two years of training in 2009-2010 I had gotten my stamina up in 2011 doing cardio. 2012 I spent the year pregnant and a brand new mom so I didn't do cardio then so I'm working back up slowly and steadily. My focus is HEALTH and simply feeling good and maintaining and adding lean ,uncle so that I can be strong for many more years to come and enjoy my children and eventually their children with a long healthy life :)

Interesting Quote: The hand that helps is holier than the lips that pray. (this was in my Franklin Covey planner this week!)

I Love: My absolutely amazing husband, my talented and funny kids, working out, writing, meditation and prayer, and listening to loud upbeat music while doing housework. I also find great joy in discovering other people's gifts and (gently) encouraging the use of those gifts. EVERYONE has something they do great and its wonderful when we are generous with our gifts, talents and abilities.

    I have to say that I really enjoy your blogs. I accidentally stumbled upon your Homebodys perfect weekend blog while doing a completely unrelated google search. So you are basically responsible for me finding the Spark site so I am very thankful for that! It's just what I need to jumpstart my weightloss journey. I look forward to reading more of your posts.

    I believe Gulf Beaches is today....I'm rooting for my friends, I did it last year and next week is the ING..Too soon now since I lost 2 months of training. I guess I'll have to check out some other.
    Gasparillia Long Distance in Tampa is in February....

    Thank you for the kick to get motivated. Another New Year and I sure needed that motivation. Been out of My Sunshine State and not use to cold freezing temps. Within 2 months of no running, I put on 12 pounds. Well, I did get out today and ran 2 miles. Not quite the 14 I am use to, but I will get back to it. Thanks again. I needed that.

    Oooh, a challenge! I love it and TOTALLY accept. It came at a perfect time, too! Today I was supposed to work out with my work out buddy (who has not worked out with me as of yet. Keeps cancelling on me!) but she cancelled again. I have my workout clothes with me, dinner in the crockpot, and I was going to just go home after work. But now that you've challenged me, I MUST go work out today! And get another 30 minutes in later this week.
    Thanks so much for the kick in the booty, and I will let you know at the end of the week how I do!
