Hi! My name is Jennifer. I have reduced my weight and feel fantastic. I strive (and most times am able) to eat clean with wholesome organic foods, except on rare occasion. My family and I spend a lot of our free time at our athletic club doing various activities. I really enjoy all the friendliness and support here on SparkPeople. Thanks for spreading the Spark!


Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
-Matthew 6:34

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great. -Mark Twain

If you think you can, or you think you cannot, you will always be right. -Henry Ford

There are some people who live in a dream world, and there are some who face reality; and then there are those who turn one into the other. -Douglas Everett

I hold it true that thoughts are things;
They're endowed with bodies and breath and wings;
And that we send them forth to fill
The world with good results, or ill.
That which we call our secret thought
Speeds forth to earth's remotest spot,
Leaving its blessings or its woes
Like tracks behind it as it goes.
We build our future thought by thought,
For good or ill, yet know it not.
Yet, so the universe was wrought.
Thought is another name for fate;
Choose, then, thy destiny and wait,
For love brings love and hate brings hate. -Henry Van Dyke

Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination are omnipotent. The slogan 'press on' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race. - Calvin Coolidge

Fitness Minutes: 5,444

My Goals:
I need to stick to my calorie range. The working out isn't the problem, it's keeping myself from snacking. I have a sweet tooth and that is always a challenge.

I have strayed from strength training and need to set up a program for at least 2 days a week. I also have gotten back into doing an hour a week of yoga and strive to stick with it.

I also need to tune up my bike because fall is perfect bike riding weather.

My Program:
Currently I am doing crosstraining 3 times a week:
I do intervals on the treadmill usually walking at 4.2, then 2 mins running at 6.6, then 1 min walk. Repeat for 1 mile.
Then I switch to the elliptical and do a mile of hills at level 15.
Then I do 3 miles of hills on the recumbent bike at level 15.
I have been doing two days per week of spinning in a class at my gym. I got a new kid's yoga DVD and my daughter and I are getting a kick out of that.
On the weekend I try to do something fun for exercise, like bike riding, hiking, or yoga.

Personal Information:
I live in Sacramento, CA, USA. I have been married to a great guy for 8 years, and we have a beautiful 4 y.o. daughter. I work as a financial analyst for the State of CA.

Other Information:
I am in my mid-30's, and 5'10" tall. I love movies, music, surfing the Net. I also hike, play disc golf, regular golf, swim, do yoga, spin class and outdoor bicycling. When I bike I pull another 50 lbs behind me (daughter in a trailer) so it is quite a workout!
