*** ON A SPARK BREAK RIGHT NOW ***
** Still sparking it offline and promise to return! **


Hello! I'm a wife and stepmom of two living in upstate NY. I want to improve my overall health -- lose weight, sleep more, reduce stress, and be more active. I plan to try to conceive in the next year or two and would like to lose weight before I do in order to have a healthy pregnancy. This is not a short-term means to an end, though. This is a lifestyle change.

I have vowed to enjoy this journey, because if that's no fun it will make it that much harder to keep on it!

Everyday I am improving my health, my looks, and my well-being. I am getting stronger in every way.


"You show me somebody who likes to work out, I'm gonna show you a wierdo. But with that said, obviously, you have to do it... Your health is the platform for your entire life... and when you're not well you're not strong or well in any other aspect of your life." ~Jillian Michaels

"I particulary hate running -- my own private hell." ~Jillian Michaels

My Goals:
*Get my bike road-ready and get back to cycling
*Get healthy and drag my family along with me


My Program:
I've been incorporating small changes, a few at a time. My focus right now is on stress reduction, reducing portion sizes, keeping hydrated, and moving more!

I am not "on a diet" -- I enjoy delicious healthy food and do not feel deprived. The weight I have lost has come from making smarter and more mindful food choices and from increasing my physical activity.



Personal Information:
I love outdoor activities, especially hiking and cycling.

I walk almost everyday at my favorite park or sometimes at the track.

I love traveling, going to concerts, reading, knitting, and cooking.

    But if you still want to use your bike, here's what I use when the weather turns cold: http://www.kurtkinetic.com/ (bike trainer).

    It's great, because I just hook it up to my normal bike where ever I want and pedal away.

    Hi! I saw your post on the exercise thread in the Done Girls forum. Just wanted to mention that I use a stride cycle because of my limited space. Its a great way to go bicycling without the cost or clutter of a stationary bike!
