WELCOME to my sparkpage!!!
I'm getting back into shape after having babies! I want to feel better, not so lethargic and sick! I'd love to be able to run again or at least keep up with my wonderfully energetic kids!
It's all about getting healthy, loving myself, and putting myself first so that I have enough to share with my family and friends!
Current goal: Right now just to get more than 4 hours of sleep a night!
Next goal: Get regular exercise.
"If you think you can't, then you're probably right!"
Let's change our minds!
My immediate goal is get active and eat better. I will make permanent, healthy changes.
Within the next year (by September, 2009) I will lose 40 lbs., look better, feel better, and have the energy I need to keep up with my kids!
1. Cardio workout 30-45 minutes, 6 times a week. That includes walking, running, stairs, aerobics, dancing, and yoga.
2. Strength train 90 minutes a week.
3. Eat 4-5 small, nutritious meals and drink at least 8 glasses h2o a day.
Includes lots of greens, flax, fiber, and small amounts of lean protein.
4. Meditate everyday even if it's for one minute.
5. Keep Balance!
6. Go bike riding as a family.
My rewards for goals met:
10 lbs. - new haircut
20 lbs. - new sneakers
25 lbs. - pedicure & new yoga mat
30 lbs. - new book
35 lbs. - massage
40 lbs. - new outfit, new hair color, and flowers!!!

Hello my friends.
IT's a BOY!!!!!
I know it has been 3 weeks since I have had my baby, and many of you are still waiting for me to announce what I had. I am sorry it has taken so long. For you see, there was some complications. Both baby Tristan and Amelia were in the hospital for several days.
Due to complications from delivery, my new son had aspirated some fluid and ended up with aspiration pneumonia and ARDS.
He was admitted to the NICU and was placed on c-pap until his was strong enough to breathe on his own.
The plan was for Tristan to stay on Antibiotics for 14-21 days!
Due to unfortunate events on July 5th, my Amelia, Who had a kidney transplant last year, developed a fever of 41 degrees Celsius (105.8 degrees Fahrenheit). Amelia was admitted to Primary Children's hospital on the 3rd floor. Due to the stress of having just given birth 4 days ago, and now having 2 children in the hospital, I was able to have both children moved to the same hospital.
Both Amelia and Tristan are doing well. Amelia was first placed on oral antibiotics and Tristan had a PICC line, in which I gave him two IV antibiotics every 6 hours.
I have posted a longer Blog, on my sparkpage, if you are interested, plus I have uploaded some great photos of Tristan and the rest of my children.
I hope things are going better for all of you!!

Thank you so much for your Thoughts and prayers for my Princess Amelia. She will be getting her Kidney transplant this Tuesday morning at about 08:00. The surgery for Amelia will be 3-4 hours long. The donor will start her surgery at 05:00, which will also be 3 hours long. The surgery for the Donor will be at the University of Utah hospital. Amelia’s surgery will be at Primary Children’s hospital. The buildings are connected.
I am very excited and nervous for the surgery. I know that she needs this surgery and it is a great sacrifice for the donor. But anytime Amelia needs surgery I get very nervous.
Amelia will be in the hospital for 3 week-ish. I will be updating daily what is going on with her on her carepage, (see my sparkpage) and I will update in a blog on my sparkpage when I can.
Thank you all for your support, thoughts and prayers. We really need them
