Me & Joe Don Rooney of Rascal Flatts - LUV him! <3
Yay! I did it! My first 1/2 Marathon finish!
Shared Fitness Tracker
Since discovering the Spark, I've accomplished some amazing things....I've become a runner...NEVER in a million years would I have thought I'd use that word to describe myself! I ran my first half marathon in January of 2009 and finished in less than 3 hours...an incredible feat for me...a runner with less than 6 months under my belt!
Since then, I've run several 5k's and I've cleaned up my diet somewhat, maintaining my weight, but not losing those last stubborn 20 pounds I really would like to lose.
In 2010, I have decided that I'm tossing the DIET mentality and really focusing on what I can do to fuel my body with the most unprocessed food possible, lots of water and very little junk. I also want to move in ways that I enjoy and that make me feel better about myself, relieve stress and get stronger and healthier.
I am a huge fan of country music. Rascal Flatts are my all time favorites....I've seen them more times than I can count...I guess you could officially call me obsessed. Haha!
Seriously, though...Their music inspires me everyday. I have been fortunate to meet them several times and they are the most amazing, down-to-earth guys you would ever want to meet. I've made some amazing friends through my love of their music as well. It's just all a good thing! :)
On April 1st, I will start the ChaLEAN Extreme program.
I am so excited to embark on this new challenge, and to see the results at the end of the 90 days.
During this time, I am going to commit 100% to the ChaLEAN program. If I feel I need extra cardio, I will add that in, but at this point, I am committing to ChaLean.
It is also my goal to further clean up my eating. I have come A LONG WAY....but there are always improvements that can be made and I'd like to reach for whole foods when I need a snack or to refuel more often than packaged easy, low calorie but less healthy alternatives.
I'm under 140 for the first time in FOREVER....now I want to kick it up a notch, get things tighter and firmer and get these last 15 pounds off once and for all.
I'd like to lose at least 21 pounds. My goal weight is 125, but I may lose more depending on how I feel at that weight. I also want to improve my overall fitness, so that I can enjoy activities with my kids and be a positive example for them.
As of April 2009,
I am refocusing my diet to keep with clean eating principles and portion control.
Workouts: Running 2-3x per week, Turbojam, Pilates videos and a little bit of ddr, figure skating or whatever will get me off my butt and moving in between runs!
I was born in Upstate NY but moved to Southwest Florida when I was a kid, and have lived here ever since.....so I'm pretty much a Florida girl.
I am a HUGE country music fan and I try to attend at least 1 Alan Jackson and 1 Rascal Flatts concert a year, or I go through withdrawals! lol! If I can get away with it, I attend MANY more than that, though.
I also love figure skating, but was only a spectator until I turned 40 and I finally took lessons. I fell in love the moment my blades hit the ice! I wish I could hit the rink more often...it's like therapy for me.

Happy Birthday to You!
Born today, September 8, you may carry on a volatile love-hate relationship with one particular endeavor throughout your lifetime, and this conflict is likely to shape your life and your character in ways that are virtually indelible, unchangeable and quite dramatic. The truth is that because of one or two remarkable talents, you will be drawn toward a particular line of work, and yet while you are toiling away in pursuit of success and the full development of those talents you may find that you do not like much of what comprises that very endeavor. This is something you must eventually work out -- or frustration may be a constant companion.
Despite appearances, you can be quite retiring at times, and indeed you may actually prefer your own company to the company of others -- even though you know very well how to put a smile on another's face and mix well in both personal and professional situations.
Todays Virgo Horoscope: The best thing you can do to further your own agenda is to keep things moving. Any unnecessary slowdown will only set you back.
Hope your day is wonderful!
