Member Since: 6/25/2011

SparkPoints: 39,704

Fitness Minutes: 25,977

My Goals:
My goal is to be healthy, which includes stronger and slimmer than I am today. I want to be able to play with my children and in the future, my grand children.

My Program:
I plan to track everything that passes through my lips as well as all of my exercise. It is challenging. Right now my goal is 20 minutes of exercise 6-7 days a week, eating 1400-1600 calories a day.

Personal Information:
I was happily married with 2 dogs and between us, 5 children. November 27, 2013 my life changed drastically. My husband died unexpectedly. Now I have to learn how to live all over again.

Other Information:
My favorite exercises are Pilates, Elliptical, Stationary Bike, Weight Lifting and especially swimming and exercises in the pool. I would have loved to take long walks with my husband and dogs, but arthritis in both knees stopped me. Now I have replaced both knees and no longer have a husband to walk with.

Hi, I've come across your page today and have been reading your blogs and I'm sorry for your loss. Your blogs have me in tears at work. It's beautiful to read about they type of relationship you had with Ken and sad to read the pain you're going through and how you're trying to deal. I can't imagine life without my husband he is my rock. You are a strong woman. May you find the peace and strength you need to live life after Ken! *hugs*

"Above all else, do NOT quit! The universe always bows to persistence.
The empowering approach is to see your physical challenges as assets, because overcoming obstacles forces you to develop discipline, determination and character.
These traits will carry over to other areas of your life and make you a stronger person.
-Tom Venuto
