Im tired of sneaky people and sneaky diets. I want truth and honesty and accountability.

This is my best friend and running partner.

Im Kelley. Im nearly 42, clinging to 41 ;p I live in Columbus OH.
I love travel and animals and mostly Art.
I teach high school Art. Presently Im running a community quilting project.
Im mostly a drawing artist but have taken to computer arts recently.

I adore my children, 11 and 5.
I dont spend much time with friends other then online, my work and my family fill all my life.

I bought a treadmill that rocks this planet and have been busy tracking my walk/running. I hope if you are a visitor you will leave a message her or on my quilting page:)

I smoked for 25 years and quit cold turkey a little over 2 years ago. Ive NEVER regretted quitting and can do SO much more.
I dont do drugs but occassionaly drink. I used to drink a lot more but dont like hangovers or how bad my body feels afterward. Takes too long to feel good again. I do like the high of running so thats my new thing.

I started menopause 2 1/2 years ago, really early but it has turned out to be an important instigator and motivator for changing my lifestyle.
please leave a note to say hey!

Fitness Minutes: 120

My Goals:
Daily running of 30-45 min.

Daily cals of only 1200 - 1500. (rough)

Be kind to a colleague I cant stand.

My Program:
Ive had insomnia for a few weeks so I want to use that to my advantadge to get walking at 5am everyday.
I pack a lunch so thats not a prob. Its the home time after work that kills me.

Personal Information:
Ive had some tough life issues with a few people I trusted in the last 3-4 years: friends, neighbors, colleagues, and family. Im admit that im learning how to trust again. Im learning to have less faith in others and more in myself and my husband & kids. Im also learning to walk away while not accepting their baggage or blame.

Other Information:

    Hi Kelley! Just wanted to stop by and see how you were doing. Just remember, the weight didn't come on over night so it's going to take time to get it off. I have faith you can do this!!!!!

    I wanted to welcome you to WWW...their challenges have a lot to do to keep you occupied and fit. I enjoy it even if it was my first week last week. I hope to see you in the challenges.

    Great to meet someone from my 'hood'! :) Thanks for becoming my friend. I look forward to keeping in touch. Keep in mind that I'm a 40 year old with a 6 month old. Meaning - I have no idea what I'm in for and moving slow most days! :) I try to keep up with the rest of the world.

    Welcome to spark!

    I keep telling myself that they're not hot flashes; they're power surges. Either way, it's the pits, isn't it?

    I'm glad that you're turning over a new life as you're aging. (And "aging" is not a bad thing--it's much better than the alternative.) The best is yet to come.
