Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
I'm a 44-year old wife and mother to 13-year old boy/girl twins. I've struggled with my weight all of my life but I have finally found a plan to get healthy that works for me and has become a way of life. I'm a low carb eater and a runner. I am training for my first half-marathon in September 2014. I am getting stronger, healthier, and slimmer every day!
I started at 294 pounds in January of 2013 and my goal is 130-140 pounds. I try to worry less about the scale though and more about how I feel and look.
I am a low carb eater. I generally try to stay under 1700 calories per day but don't stress about it much as long as my carbs stay around 20 grams per day.
I run every other day (I have become an avid runner!)
On my non-run days, I do long walks.
I get at least 10,000 steps every day, without fail, no exceptions!!!
I also do short abs and arms workouts every other day.
I have become a fitness junkie!
I love to share with others more details about my program, especially how I went from a 1,000 step per day, almost totally sedentary lifestyle, to a fitness addict. Feel free to message me for more info!
I am a native Texan currently living in Tulsa, Oklahoma. In December of this year I will be moving back to East Texas (Canton/Tyler area).
I'm a nut about soccer (especially American soccer, MLS. FC Dallas is my team)!
I love to read, sci-fi and non-fiction.

Happy Birthday, DONE GIRL
Aries is a hard sign for a woman to be since she wants to lead and in our culture, some don't take well to that idea. Thus she can be labelled "bossy". (Think Lucy in Peanuts.) The Aries woman wanted to be like her father, so she loves the outdoors. She has to be careful of head injuries and accidents as she will rush in without thinking and she loves to take chances. She hates to be bored. She gets along well with Sagittarius, Libra, Gemini, Leo, and Aquarius.
In Aries, the Sun is highly action oriented. You like to do your thing, and you are opinionated and direct in doing it. Your Aries personality constantly wants to charge ahead, and insists on being the one who organizes, rather than ever allowing yourself to be led or organized by others. You have a hard time recognizing any point of view except your own. Highly action oriented, when an idea strikes you, you are off quickly to carry it out. Yet you are not so good in seeing projects through to a conclusion. Follow-up and finish work are not matters that suit your style. You constantly need new goals, new projects, and new challenges.
You are a quick learner and a self-starter; enthusiastic and curious. The main challenge for an Aries Sun sign native is the control of impulses. You must avoid scattering forces, for if you can learn to think before taking action, your energetic nature will enable you to do much. Natural impulsiveness and inability to listen to the advice of others sometimes involves you in difficulties. To succeed, you must learn to think everything through carefully before you proceed. Patience and the ability to plan are areas in which you may have to apply extra effort. You must reflect on the total effect of your actions to grow and progress in life.
You may have a sharp temper and a quick fuse as Aries is ruled by Mars, the planet associated with war and combat. Fortunately, you get over anger as quickly as it comes, and you never hold a grudge. You are neither devious nor subtle in your actions. Many Aries Sun natives are down right blunt. Only with concentration and attention can you ever acquire much diplomacy and tact.
With your natural Aries inclinations, you have a true adventurer's or pioneer's spirit; a longing for independence and a tendency to fancy yourself as a free soul. Born to lead, but not born to handle the mundane responsibility or bureaucratic red tape. When faced with complex details, you become very frustrated. Fully matured, your Aries spirit aspires to a gallant "never say die" attitude, and a willingness to take advantage of each new opportunity that comes along.
