I'm a 32 year old stay-at-home mom who needs some motivation to set a postive life style example for my kids. And honestly, I'm tired of looking in the mirror and not liking what I see. It is time for a serious change!

SparkPoints: 28,553

Fitness Minutes: 21,584

My Goals:
1. Set a positive example of fitness and healthy eating for my children.

2. Have a more positive view of my body image - for my own self-esteem as well as my children's

3. Hold myself accountable for everything I do right (and wrong!) by tracking my nutrition and fitness with SP.

4. Focus on inches lost, rather than numbers on the scale.

5. Keep up with my strengthening exercises and Yoga classes so my knee stays healty enough to continue my running program.

6. Do a minimum of 1000 fitness minutes every month

7. Run my first 10k race, April 29 2012! - DONE!!

My Program:
Fitness: Currently I'm running 1-2 days a week for 30-40 minutes, and doing Yolates 2x per week for 60min (love this for strength training!) I also do addtional ST and cardio at the gym 2-4 days a week.
I love tracking my fitness with the SP tracker - it's rewarding to see calories burned!

Food: Eight cups of water daily, I'm working my way up to 5+ servings of freggies. I track everything I eat with SP Nutrition Tracker. My daily goal is 1200-1400 calories, with emphasis on higher protein, low fat and healthy carbs.

Personal Information:
I'm a stay-at-home mom of two young children, living with them and my husband in beautiful British Columbia, Canada.

I am training for my first 10k, scheduled for April 15. If that goes well, I'll do another the following weekend. I'm gradually getting back to the gym and yoga, and am currently working up to being consistently active 5x per week for 30min.

Other Information:

The only place I know to enter calories burned is in the fitness goals and I only see a place to enter weekly amount burned. Am I looking in the wrong place?
