Just do it!

My name is Jackie, and I'm becoming TERRIFICLY FIT!

Like many of you, I have a complicated story that's resulted in joining SparkPeople to regain my health, my energy, and my life.

It took 3 years after I first joined SparkPeople in May 2008 to FINALLY reach my first weight loss goal. I'm proud to share that of June 27, 2011, I lost 41lbs, which was my first milestone. And as of February 2012, I officially lost 50lbs. Woohoo!! Now to work on the last 10 or so!

As for other happenings in my life, I spent a few years working as a health educator in community clinics for the homeless, immigrants, and low income. This was my passion for a long time and what I went to graduate school for. But then 2011 brought about a BIG change in my life, as I just up and sold everything I owned to move to Lima, Peru! It didn't quite work out, but I gave it my best shot for a year and now have returned to San Diego, California to recuperate and regroup.

Follow along on my journeys as I follow my heart...and my brain!

I CAN and WILL be happy and healthy no matter what challenges I face.

JUST DO IT!

Fitness Minutes: 57,874

My Goals:
My overall objective is to stay healthy and fit the rest of my life.

I'm working on:
- losing the jiggly flab, and
- becoming stronger.

Just do it!

My Program:
I walk and take public transportation every day, as well as try to run 2-3 times per week. I have to admit my nutrition regimen is not the best since I moved to Lima, but the fresh food and lack of preservatives definitely helps with weight loss.

Personal Information:
Originally from Fredericksburg, Virginia, I've lived on both the East and West Coasts. As of April 2011, I've jumped ship for Lima, Peru to challenge myself by living in a completely different culture. It's a true challenge, that's for sure!

Other Information:
Love love love making pottery, kayaking, exploring Mexican art, preparing healthy meals, swimming, researching genealogy, practicing medical anthropology, and brainstorming travel plans.
