Getting Real

For three years, I was an attorney in state government, but left my job because of my chronic migraines. Now I'm focusing my energy on my blog, Somebody Heal Me, and on trying to make the best of my situation.

SparkPoints: 2,582

Fitness Minutes: 1,575

My Goals:
I'm working to lose weight, better manage my type 2 diabetes and maximize my fertility.

My Program:
The biggest change I'm making is to cut way, way back on drinking soda. Believe it or not, but I've been drinking regular soda even though I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes about four years ago. It has been much easier than I thought it would be and has helped me increase my water intake.

I'm watching my calories, fat and carbs and exercising at least four times a week. I like yoga, Just Dance for Wii, Zumba, the Leslie Sansone walking videos & walking my dog around the neighborhood.

Personal Information:
I live in Lawrence, Kansas, with my husband of 9 years, Cliff, and our dog Maisy and cat Felix.

Other Information:
I love, love, love to read. I'm also really into blogging, knitting, movies, reality TV, my pets & hubby.

I'm a college football fanatic and I love college basketball, too.

I'm way into politics. I love The Daily Show, Real Time with Bill Maher, and The Rachel Maddow Show. I'm very liberal, but also very accepting of different points of view. I have to be - I live in Kansas!

Hi Ruth. Glad to have you on the Spark Power team.
emoticon on kicking the soda. I use to drink a 6 pack a day of the diet soda when I was working but not any more. I might have one if I go out to eat but usually I'll take one of those Drink mix sticks and add it to a glass of water.
Keep up the good work on getting healthy!!
Jan
