"My health is my Number One Priority. I truly love my body."

I'm a 42 year old woman in Lincoln NE and am newly single again! I have a dog named Max and have been back in my hometown for about 3 years now.

Since starting SparkPeople, I quit my office job of 11 years, cashed out my retirement (at the height of the market, apparently!), attended Life Coaching school, voluntarily didn't work for a year (it took THAT long to decompress)!

I'm a 42 year old woman in Lincoln NE and am newly single again! I have a dog named Max and have been back in my hometown for about 3 years now.

Since starting SparkPeople, I quit my office job of 11 years, cashed out my retirement (at the height of the market, apparently!), attended Life Coaching school, voluntarily didn't work for a year (it took THAT long to decompress)!

After moving back home, I again started to feel the pressure to work so I could take over my Mom's house payment. So I got a job across the street at the grocery store and although I just wanted a no-stress job making donuts in the morning, I somehow got sucked into managing the bakery & deli. After 6 long long months of 50+ hour weeks in a Romper Room atmosphere and endless drive-thru meals, I quit.

I'm definitely learning from my mistakes!

I now work at Barnes and Noble full time at the Nook counter! I love standing and talking to people all day and actually like my job for the first time in YEARS.

Now that I'm happy again, it's time to pick up the pieces and start taking care of ME again!

We've decided that it's best if I take some time off again to get re-centered. This allows us to save big bucks on food while switching to more whole foods and satisfying meals and spend less time in restaurants and fast food places! Not to mention that the dog misses me terribly. =)


I owe it to myself to have complete Freedom!

Freedom to wear what I want -- Bikini, skirts, shorts!

Freedom to go where I want -- The beach, reunions, anywhere!

Freedom to do what I want -- Bike through rural Italy, Move to France, whatever!

SWATKITTY Yesterday was a pretty full, emotional day! The Balyeats were in town and Brian met them for the first time. It was also Ian's birthday, so we had cake and ice cream along with Easter candy.
