Growing up and Getting Fit!

Hello Sparkfriends!

My name is Emily, and I am a Florida girl living in northern France with my husband. The climate difference is a big shock to my system, and I'm just now getting used to it. I used to be very active, but that's dwindled, since I work from home as a freelance writer and editor (I'm available for more work, if you have it!).

Hello Sparkfriends!

My name is Emily, and I am a Florida girl living in northern France with my husband. The climate difference is a big shock to my system, and I'm just now getting used to it. I used to be very active, but that's dwindled, since I work from home as a freelance writer and editor (I'm available for more work, if you have it!).

I finished high school at 125 lbs. I finished college at 145 lbs. Since then, my weight has fluctuated between 135-145. I am generally a healthy eater because I love vegetables and fruit, but since I've stopped exercising as much, my weight has crept up. My biggest challenge is to get off my bahonkie (my mother's word!) and get moving! In high school, I was incredibly active between marching band and soccer, as well as walking around on our huge campus. In college, I got less exercise, but still more than I do now. Since I'm now an adult, I need to take charge of my own health, which includes getting off my bahonkie and getting outdoors more.

My family has a history of heart disease, high cholesterol, obesity, and diabetes. Most of these are preventable, and I need to start now if I want to avoid them!

I am always looking for Sparkfriends and buddies. Feel free to send me a message!

Many thanks for your comment on my 'Royal Senlis' blog! I am happy you enjoyed Séraphine Louis' art. I love it too. You might enjoy the movie, if you ever have the opportunity to watch it.
To be honest, Paris doesn't have much little streets like this left at all, no... They were mostly distroyed by Baron Haussmann in the 19th century. There used to be lots before then, but they were seen as dangerous for civil war - wide avenues were easier to control.
I am sorry, I am being talkative! emoticon Have a lovely evening!

Northern France is so beautiful. I love Normandy and Brittany. I know what you mean about missing PB. We live in Brussels and I have to pick up a jar whenever I go to the American Store in Mons. And, yes, that and Reeses are a big no-no for me!

Congrats on being so close to your goal!
