Hello! I am a 39 year old mom of three teenage kiddos and I am wanting a change so I can live a long and healthy life. I have always tried to do this alone, so I looked through different blogs, communities, etc. that lead me to Spark People.

Since I have joined SparkPeople in January 2019 I have lost a total or 85 lbs. I am more than halfway to my ultimate goal weight. I have accomplished this by being consistent with my workouts, counting my calories, and participating in team challenges. I have met the most wonderful people and am hoping to keep meeting more.





Member Since: 1/30/2019

My Goals:
My goal is to make a lifestyle change. I am lucky enough that most of the "bad for you cravings" I do not possess. Not a fan of pasta, soda, or potatoes... but I love bread and anything that is salty and crunchy.. That will be the hardest to balance in my new lifestyle change.


My Program:
As a member of the 5% challenge I continue to stick to my journey for a healthier lifestyle change. I eat the highest nutritional foods with the lowest calorie buck. I don't like structured diets due to wanting to still enjoy food that would normally be restricted but in a healthy way that won't allow myself to dive back into an unhealthy pattern. If I don't learn how to incorporate some "bad" then how can I fully achieve the life I am hoping for after the weight loss!

I exercise 7 days a week. My plan goes like this:
Mon- 45 minutes ST
Tue- 30 + minutes cardio
Wed- 45 minutes ST
Thur - 30 + minutes cardio
Fri- 45 minutes ST
Sat - 30 + minutes cardio
Sun - clean, food prep, and new exercise (swimming, biking, jogging, etc)



Personal Information:
I work for a non-profit that provides service for developmentally disabled members of my community. Born and raised in Alaska, I enjoy the outdoor activities my beautiful state offers, mostly summer and fall, but winter is not too bad ;-)

    I know. I'm lazy. But I made myself a New Years resolution
    that I would write myself something really special,
    which means I have 'til December, right?
    ~Catherine O'Hara~

    I have no way of knowing how people really feel,
    but the vast majority of those I meet couldn't be nicer.
    Every once in a while someone barks at me.
    My New Year's resolution is not to bark back.

    Remember when we were young and wanted to stay up for New Year’s?
    Now we are old and all we want to do is sleep.

    An optimist stays up until midnight to see the New Year in.
    A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves.

    With only 10 Days left, we need to stop, take a deep breath, sit back,
    relax, and take a few minutes to read what a boy & girl want for Christmas.

    Darren remembers accompanying his father out shopping
    in the toy department of Macy's one Christmas Eve.
    Dad said, 'What a marvelous train set. I'll buy it.'
    The girl behind the counter looked pleased and murmured,
    'Great, I'm sure your son will really love it.'
    Dad replied with a glint in his eye, 'Maybe you're right. In that case I'll take two.'

    The Santa Claus at the shopping mall was very surprised when Emily,
    a young lady aged about 20 years old walked up and sat on his lap.
    Now, we all know that Santa doesn't usually take requests from adults,
    She smiled very nicely at him, so he asked her,
    'What do you want for Christmas?'
    'Something for my mother, please,' replied Emily sweetly.
    'Something for your mother? Well, that's very loving and thoughtful of you,'
    smiled Santa. 'What would you like me to bring her?
    Without turning a hair Emily answered quickly, 'A son-in-law.'

    What would YOU want for Christmas? Do you have it on YOUR list?
