I'm a TRANSFORMER

1/02/2012 - A new year!
I left my spark behind a bit in 2011, but this year I have a new mantra and a new attitude and my goal is to keep it going.


4/18/2011 - I'm coming off 6-weeks on unemployement with the realization that during that time I sat around and snacked way too much. Today, I weighed myself for the first time in a long time and I have gone back into 160ville.

4/18/2011 - I'm coming off 6-weeks on unemployement with the realization that during that time I sat around and snacked way too much. Today, I weighed myself for the first time in a long time and I have gone back into 160ville.

But I know that I can get back and even exceed where I was before. I've come from the 180s, so I know that I can reclaim positive momentum. I just need to DO IT!

I'm married and have two daughters (16 & 11) and I want to be an example. There is a lot I dream of us doing a lot of activities together, but I need to be in better shape for that to happen. The excuses need to go.


I don't want to forget how it felt to write:
So, I'm yet to be the runner I aspire to be BUT I'm a better runner than I've ever been.

I don't have a flat tummy BUT I've discovered my collar bones.

I don't always order the healthiest thing on the menu BUT I no longer make my choices blind.

I'm not going to be on the cover of a magazine BUT I'm starting to think that maybe I look good in certain clothes.

I don't always roll out of bed and throw on my sneakers BUT my sneakers are not collecting dust.

I haven't developed an ego BUT I am proud!

"My boss told me that the shape of my face is changing. I think the shape of my soul is changing. "

"Also thanks to my fellow "sparkers" the word 5K left my mouth yesterday. Who knew that would ever happen??"
