Running in Vegas...

"Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far they can go."
I am a mother of four little punks :o). The last two, who are currently 3 & 4, helped (never-mind the crappy food and lack of exercise) to send my weight over the edge for a few years. Along with a bundle of stress and an ill, but vivacious, little girl, here I am today. I have two brothers and a Mom and Dad who are my best friends, besides my husband and kids, of course.
I am a stay-at-home Mom who loves her family and loves her life! Sappy, but true, most days :o). I am a former aerobics instructor who recently started teaching classes again. My little independent aerobics business is called Pioneer Fitness, hence my name on Spark-people. I am currently "slowly" working at finishing a degree in elementary education and also obtaining my certifications as a personal trainer. I coach various sports and referee basketball, part-time.
I have goals for my own fitness and health that I am working to achieve. I am fit but not skinny, and that is okay with me. Skinny used to be my goal, not anymore. My goal now is achieving exceptional overall health and fitness. I am green and getting greener all of the time. I love organics and making my own household cleaners and beauty products. I have a stellar Mom and Dad who taught me how to be green before green was cool. I like to craft, especially jewelry and essential oil soy candle making. I'm a jack of all trades and a master of NONE. I will try anything once, but I might not finish. I enjoy cooking, especially making over not-so-healthy recipes to be dreamy well rounded creations.
I am 100% country girl: I like to fly fish, hunt, and hike! I love being around family and friends. I married a cowboy who is a superintendent of a small school. He also shoes horses and coaches football and wrestling. I went from growing up in a relatively populated area in Indiana to living in the middle of Montana where there are more cows than people. I miss the trees, but not the traffic and crowds.
I also enjoy gardening, but my gardens are never that great, maybe I should learn to weed. I like all sports, working out and wasting away hours surfing the net for useful and sometimes useless info. I am an independent woman who lives a simple yet dreamy quiet life, and I am blessed. I love spending time with my husband and kids, even though they can all be pain in the butts a lot of the time :o). My kids are the cutest kids in the world, even when they are talking back. Now you know everything about me, even if you didn't want to know it. Nah, you probably stopped reading four paragraphs ago and I don't blame you. Did I mention I don't get out much.
Anyway, enough about me, for now anyway. I hope to gain some friends that share a common goal and I wish you all the best of luck in 2011!!! That's all.
Stay healthy and fit forever and ever and ever!
Keep fresh salsa, hummus, and cut up veggies in my fridge all of the time. Why, because it's good.
Write a book about my sassy and wild cowgirl daughters.
Live without regret.
Smile, a lot.
Eating more protein, fiber and fresh fruits and veggies.
Eat all-natural, homemade and green foods without preservatives, etc...
Working out 5 times a week at least. Vary it up!
Strength training at least 3 times per week.
Drink more water!
Nothing white and nothing refined, period...
Work: Part-time as a referee/coach and aerobics instructor and full-time as a wife and Mom.
I love the Biggest Loser Reality show...it motivates me to see how far those folks have come!
I like to read healthy articles every night and in the morning, it helps me to stay on track!

Hey babe! Thanks for the goodie! You were right on the money about needing some new workout clothes. =) Mine are literally falling off of me. lol When I tried running on the treadmill a couple of days ago I had to stop because my pants would have been around my knees. So I am long over due for a pair apparently...=) How are things going with you? Did you get to go skiing?

I hope you had a great day skiing! We should try to get together and ski some day....?
I've been busy and haven't had time to write my blog...sorry! Hopefully by the weekend I'll get to it. This exercising, preparing food, and cleaning the house takes a lot of time. Especially my spark time, ding dang!
