Time To Reboot

I am a stay at home mom with a wonderful husband and two awesome kids. My weight has always been a struggle for me as long as I can remember. I want to finally kick my weight problem in the rear end and move on to finally finding inner peace and happiness with myself. Since starting Spark it has been such a wonderful experience and I enjoy taking advantage of all it has to offer. Not only does it give you a diet, a workout plan, but support from the nicest people you'll ever meet!!! It is ...

Just changed page title, because I am tired of being overweight!!!! I am feeling great with the changes so far...and I am going to enjoy the rest of my 30's...though I will be 39 in February. Here's to a rockin' future!!!!

April 5th-Ok...time to get back on track!!! I have been derailed by health issues that caused me to have setbacks in my weight loss and running. But today is the day I reset my tracker to zero!!! I gained 5lbs in the six weeks I was out of commission and it's time to get my tracker moving again!!!! I am motivated and ready to go!!!! I had to do it to get real with myself and to start moving forward once again!!!

May 18th, 2011...moving in the right direction. Going to run the Princess Half Marathon for my 40th birthday in February. Is there a better way to celebrate?!?!?

May 21st, 2012...celebrated my 40th running the Princess Half Marathon in Disney World with my Twinnie Kathleen0222!!!! The most amazing experience...and best way to enter my 40's!!! Now I'm working towards my next half marathon...the Hershey Half Marathon where we will run for chocolate!!!! Hence the name!!!

August 30, 2013...I have had so much success on this site. But really fallen off track. Time to regroup and get back on track. I want to have that confident happy feeling again.

Hi Shani!! So happy to see you! I thought of you during my training for the half, and all the running you were always doing! And I remember cheering you on for your Disney half!
Anyway, it was great. The best experience ever in regard to fitness. I got to run with my BF here on Spark (much like you, it was meeting my twinie for the first time!!). That made the entire thing even more exciting! She really helped me through all my training and running next to her was the best!
The HM was in Indianapolis. It's a big deal there too...called the Mini Indy. We chose this spot because it was a half way point for us to meet...she's in Missouri, and of course you know I'm in Pittsburgh.
I won't ramble on about it...even though I could...and just refer you to my SP blog I wrote about it. Check it out when you have time. It has pics from the event too!

So what is new with you? How are the kids? I see from that new pic your son has really sprouted!! My gosh, and he looks just like your DH. And your daughter looks just like you! I hope they are well.
My kids are doing great and growing like weeds too! Little Carly is just about 18 months now, and I think she's going to be tall...at least she is now for her age! LOL! Emily will be a senior this year and Preston will be starting school. Chad is in the middle school for another 2 years yet. Time sure does fly by, doesn't it? Especially thinking about us meeting on here...it's been nearly 4 years! I still think of you when we go play tennis...which hasn't been often enough lately. Have you played recently? emoticon

Alright, I better stop now, LOL! Take care and do keep in touch! Check out my blog - I'm so excited for you to see it.
