Note: I am taking the time to revamp this page of mine...I have some ideas that are cooking in the back of my head and I am going to challenge myself in the upcoming months to get ready for my HUGE 2009 challenge!!


I am a 31-year-old woman, mother to a 9-year-old son, and wife to an amazing man! I have a super stressful job that is very sedentary and it is time to figure out a way to lessen this stress to get rid of the padding on my HAS GOT TO GO!!

I label myself as outgoing, friendly, a good listener, but in the last few years I have found myself to withdraw a lot due to anxiety, embarrassment, and really not loving myself enough to stay out in "the real world."

My biggest goal is to get healthy for myself and for my family....the second biggest goal is to get healthy so I can have another clock is ticking off the wall and I really want this (as does my husband) but the only way we will allow it to happen is for me to get healthy so the complications are not there.

We are coming up on the last month of 2008....I plan to make some really good steps in this month to get myself completely geared and ready for the 2009 challenge I am putting upon myself. My problem is I do so good....then something clicks inside my head and stops me from doing so is a vicious cycle that needs to stop NOW.

My biggest obstacle is exercise...I do enjoy it but that is my big setback...I do so good then I fall out of the habit...I need to find a way to stay on the right path and to increase the exercise and strength training rather than yoyo back and forth from this all the time. I know I am a smart person...and I know that if I made exercise a HUGE part of my life the weight would shed right off....getting to the bottom of why I stop myself is what I need to overcome, and I will do just that.

What I will do the last month of 2008:

1. Begin my green tea challenge...I was doing really good and it felt awesome, I am trying to replace my diet soda with green tea...I seriously need to stick with this.

2. Baby steps exercise: Reunite myself with my bike...I feel so great when I jump on it and just go...I need to remember how I feel and do it no matter old friend told me a long time ago "Just 10 minutes....and see how you feel..." so I am going to do just that because I know I always end up doing more, it is that initial 10 minutes that I need to remind me that I like to exercise...then there is no turning back.

3. Bigger steps exercise: Get back into the walking...I love my DVD! It is a great workout, I sweat my butt off...why I stopped I don't know, but I am rounding the corner again...I am going to commit to AT LEAST doing this 2 times a week for starters, but my goal is 3 to 4 times a week before December is out so when January rolls around I am ready!

4. Water: Start drinking more water!! Seriously, how hard is it to pick up that know you don't mind it once you start...why do you stop yourself from starting all the time? I will get better with this during December 2008 so I am ready for 2009!!

5. Strengthening: I will start making it a point to do my strengthening exercises ROUTINELY.

6. Cooking: I am going to figure out some new recipes that will go a long way that are both healthy AND easy on the finances...times are rough, I need to make the best of this for our family.

There is a LOT more to come, but I believe these 6 points are a great start for "stepping stones" the remainder of 2008. I need to get these down before hitting 2009 because 2009 is going to be MY year! It is my turn to get healthier, happier, and more together for myself and for my family. I owe it to myself and family and I DESERVE IT :)

I am looking for friends along the way to help me on this challenging journey...thanks for checking out my page :)

    I'm here to make sure that you get whatever you need from us at Spark! I want you to know that I totally understand what you are going through. I was on such an awesome workout routine and then I got sick, and then I had to get stitches on my shin (no high impact for a couple weeks) and I'm just having a hard time getting back into it and I'm kicking myself for how much of what I used to do, I lost in that time period! BUT Strength is about standing up after falling, not about being scared to fall. We can do this. We know we can! Let me know when you need a hand to help you up and I'll do the same!

    Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
