"We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same." Carlos Castenada

"We have no right to ask when a sorrow come "why did this happen to me?" unless we ask the same question for every joy that comes our way." Phillip E. Bernstein

Had you told me 4 years ago I would hike Half Dome I would have laughed at you, then cried. My mom delivered the news that her cancer had spread & the doctors could no longer "cherry pick" out tumors. In an effort to deal with what was ahead, I set off to draw strength from the beauty of the environment around me. The hike was brutal but I survived & went to face the reality that was before me with open eyes.

The quotes above were kept on my computer while my mom was dying in 2008... it made me realize that we have a choice to be strong or miserable. mom passed away September 11, 2008 & will always be my hero. I choose to be strong & hope you do too.

Always remember that you are not alone...anytime you feel lost (I have frequently lately) log on to SparkPeople!

I am a mom of one amazing 5 year old boy & I work full time as an administrative assistant for a medical diagnostics company.

Long story short I was not a fan of being pregnant and so I ate and ate and ate and when I was full I ate some more….I was 128 lb when I found out I was pregnant and 198 lb the day I had him. (Please tell me how it is fair that I have an almost 8 lb baby but only loose 3 lb before leaving the hospital?) It was a long 3 years to get the weight off but worth it for how much better I feel!

Sparkpeople is helping me heal....I hope it does the same for you.

    We definitely need to get together soon. Say Mimi's in Elk Grove? The men can handle the boys. I definitely need a virtual buddy too!

    I would highly recommend the Saturday AM bootcamp with Bryan. One thing I noticed that was not specific to any other class at our gym. People were swearing during the class and telling Bryan that he was "out of his freakin' mind". :)

    Now that is a sign of a great (Read: hard) class!

    p.s. I stopped counting after 200 crunches. (seriously)
