Hi all. I am "new," but not new to spark. This is my 2nd time around. I thought I could make it out in the real world alone, but alas I decided I needed you guys more than I thought. I still have a long way to go in my quest to be the healthiest me I can be.
I joined Spark when my husband was deployed in 2009. I started woring out when my kids went to bed and was able to lose 50 pounds. Eventually I started hiring someone to come out to watch the kids for me time and my me time started becoming work out time. I started running. I always thought I hated running before Spark, but I soon found that running on the open pavement was time that I could be free in my own mind, it is truly a liberating experience. It wasn't too log before I decided to challenge myself to run long distances and and became a three time half marathon runner (and here I thought I hated running before Spark when being a slug seemed like a good idea)!
When my husband returned home in 2010, home demands were too much and I thought I could do it on my own so I gave up Spark and started gaining weight. After gaining about 20 pounds back, I started working out and eating right and geting back to my Spark habits here lately.
Last night checking my email I had an advertisment from Spark in my email. I took that as a sign to rejoin Spark. So here I am again.
So this is who I am:
I am a mom of two adopted kiddos. I have a four year old daughter named Alaina and a five year old son named Aaron. Aaron started Kindergarten this year (yeah)!!!! As I mentioned earlier, I am a military wife. My husband is in the Army National Guard and is currently on Active Orders locally for the time being. I work full time fas an "Office Coordinator" (glorified title for a secretray with better pay) for a busy department in a Hospital. And as I mentioned beforehand I really enjoy running (sometimes I just have to kick myself in the keister to remind myself that I like it)!
