This is not about where I've been or what I've done wrong. It's about doing what's right and changing my habits to make a new and improved me! Here is a little about me:
Age 38
2 boys: age 17 and age 20

I had a car accident last year where I broke my hip, femur, both bones in lower leg, ankle, and foot in several places. I just had a surgery in April to remove the screws from my foot and have a pin my pinkie toe. I'm in physical therapy a few times a week. I have one more surgery at the end of this summer of 2016 to have the rod removed from my leg which they take out through the knee area so that won't feel too good. It's been a long road to recovery but slowly I'm getting better thanks to God for healing me quickly.

My hobbies:
Swimming, lifting weights, walking, spending time with family, listening to music (I think I'm a DJ lol), meeting new friends, reading, gardening, and I LOVE traveling. I've been to the Bahamas, Cali, Florida, Oregon, and Hawaii (plus other states not as cool lol). I love learning about other cultures! I love to cook and read about living a healthy lifestyle.

My past:

I grew up eating whatever I wanted. We never talked about nutrition. I was a sprinter and high jumper 7th-9th grade, and also did cheerleading in 9th grade. I hated the cheering part, I just wanted to do the flips and I was proud that I was strong and could hold up all the smaller girls. I used to be able to do 5 back handsprings in a row.

I played basketball with the boys, arm wrestled any and everyone, raced anyone on foot or in the pool, and when I wasn't in sports I LIVED at the swimming pool in the summer. I grew up in Indy but I don't plan on staying here. I've always wanted to move to the beach one day, my dream will come true!

I was 140lbs and a size 9/10 as far back as I remember. I was never skinny but just right. I was perfect for my height (5' 7"). Basically I gained all my weight while pregnant and never lost it. I stopped playing sports as I got older and the pounds just snuck up on me.

I'm working slowly to change and lose fat. If you are too, feel free to spark me or friend me so we can do this together! :)

    “This New Year”
    by Aleena

    emoticon emoticon

    Even during the worst of times
    When I feel the years go slipping by
    Life seems rife with possibilities
    When the New Year arrives.

    Buoyed by hope at the New Year coming
    I feel renewed and want to start living.
    This year I'll travel and see the sights,
    I'll be bold, I'll be courageous.

    I'll reach out and go beyond.
    I might even try being flirtatious!
    I'll be a new fish in a brand new pond.
    This new year I'll be brave and I'll be strong.

    Even though time does fly,
    I won't let this year be wasted.
    I'll look forward to new adventures
    And be open to opportunities I am graced with.

    I'll learn and laugh and have good times.
    I won't dwell on years gone by.
    I'll start each new morning a brand new way.
    I'll pretend it is New Year's Day!
