It's a Wonderful Life!

Hello fellow Sparkers! I'm a 40something homeschooling mom of 4 kids and married for 23 yrs!
Thanks to SparkPeople, I achieved my weight loss goal from my "surprise" 40th birthday baby! I went from 159lbs to 135lbs! Then I set a new goal of 128 and reached that! WOOHOO!

I've established good fitness habits and SP helps to keep me motivated. I check in every day, regardless if I workout. Just being connected to SP keeps me conscious of being healthy.

Hello fellow Sparkers! I'm a 40something homeschooling mom of 4 kids and married for 23 yrs!
Thanks to SparkPeople, I achieved my weight loss goal from my "surprise" 40th birthday baby! I went from 159lbs to 135lbs! Then I set a new goal of 128 and reached that! WOOHOO!

I've established good fitness habits and SP helps to keep me motivated. I check in every day, regardless if I workout. Just being connected to SP keeps me conscious of being healthy.

My successful exercise methods for 2010 were Leslie Sansone DVDs, my awesome Precor 5.17I elliptical, and kayaking.

In 2011 I focused on toning DVDs like Jackie Warner and KCM and still worked my elliptical.

In 2012 I still used my elliptical and then we moved to Southern California and was lucky enough to be able to ride my bike to the beach!

2013 was a maintenance year and I didn't work out a lot but rather, lived a more active lifestyle. We biked a lot to the beach, walked the beach, and played a lot at the neighborhood park.

2014 was pretty crazy. We moved into a new house, sold our house in the Midwest, lots of life changes, and general business! The only exercise I consciously did was yoga on the beach! Awesome experience! It's my favorite workout of all time!

My goals are weight maintenance, toning up, and eating healthier.

I am in California. The username is from before we moved, about three years ago. I am in the San Jose area, though, a long way from Orange County. Our weather is pretty nice here too.

It is so great to meet another homeschooling, breastfeeding mom of 4. I have four girls ages 12, 9, 4 and 1. You are an inspiration to me! Congratulations on staying on track and meeting your goals.

Thank you for the spark goodie and the encouragement. I will try to do my best this week and get in some exercise. I was able to work out for a bit tonight. Although the baby did wake up and I came upstairs and found my dh and baby asleep on the couch. I told my dh that it is a big no no to sleep with the baby on the couch she could roll off the couch. So I was a bit annoyed. I will try to workout in the morn tomorrow when she goes to sleep for a nap. wish me luck. I was going to ask, are you the only lady running the bf team? the others haven't updated there status for ever... just wondering.
