I made it to the top of Half Dome in Yosemite last August. It was terrifying, but totally worth it!





Bootcamp is at 5:30am, which is too dark for pictures. Here's one from a Saturday workout!





First time I've ever felt good wearing a pair of skinny jeans! - 07/25/13



I have 18 pics in my gallery

Hi there! I'm Mel! :) I live in lovely, sunny SoCal, where I'm trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up. In the meantime, I'm taking care of my body and trying to get healthy. I'm new to the area and still haven't met a lot of people, but if anyone stumbles upon my page who's in the area and wants to get together, let me know!

I was a really active sparker from March-June 2011, but fell off the bandwagon. Since April 2013, I've been working to get back down there with the help of the 5% Challenges (Go Teddies!!) and my fitbit. Let's be Fitbit friends if you have one! (http://www.fitbit.com/user/227CVG)

On April 1st, 2013, at my highest weight ever (157.1lbs!), I decided that I needed to do something about this trend in the wrong direction. I want to be thin and fit and match the image I have of myself in my head!

I just realized that every year I have done one 5K even since I starting sparking. I did the Furry 5K in Seattle in 2011 and the Spartan Sprint in Malibu in Dec 2012. This year I'm going to try to do a Holiday 5K.

Ooops...total brain freeze..I have you totally confused with another mama....I just realized that this a.m. when she spark mailed me and asked if I realized she was my TWAS buddy? You must think I'm nuts...and yes...you would be correct I am.

Soooo hugs to you and forgive this little brain lapse...but I'm happy to have added you as a friend even so! emoticon emoticon emoticon
