Lots of excuses later

Hi, I am Shannon. I am a stay at home mom and an at home medical transcriptionist. When I met my husband 12 years ago I was a size 2, and now a lot of excuses later I am a size 18, and unfortunately I can't use the excuse because I had kids (I actually lost weight when I was pregnant). My mom introduced me to Spark and now here I am actually starting to do something about my self esteem and my backside. I would love to find some friends that can help keep me moving.. :)

Update 03/2013- I have now met numerous goals that I had when I started here in 2010 including I have now completed 21 half marathons since March 2011 and I have also completed 2 full marathons.

I am constantly looking at different ways to challenge myself and ways to add fun to my work outs. I am in the best place of my life- not at my fitness goals yet- but honestly could care less as I am living a life that I never thought I would have had 2 years ago.

Thanks for asking. Things are going great over here. I just started training for a HM this fall. The balancing act between family and training should be just as hard as the training itself:)

How about you?

Happy Tuesday!

Thanks for the kind thoughts!

Things are fairly good here. Dog dug a hole and I fell in and pulled a muscle in my back, but other than that, things have been great!

Hope you are fine too and reaching new goals!
