I'm looking forward to enjoying my life as a "normal-sized" person. I won't fret in amusement park waiting lines wondering if I'll fit in the roller coaster restraints anymore! There are so many things I want to do. Most of them require a healthy, fit body. I'm working on the "fit" body now.

My #1 goal is achieving a black belt in martial arts (karate) - almost there!

Member Since: 5/4/2010

Fitness Minutes: 6,058

My Goals:
1. I want to lose weight before my daughter's wedding in June. I'm almost there! YAY!

2. I want to have some fun now that my kids are out of High School. In order to have good adventures, I will need good health.

3. I am working to achieve my black belt in martial arts, which also requires a certain level of fitness I believe can be achieved by implementing a total wellness approach, like I've found on SP.

My Program:
1. Staying within my recommended nutritional limits (caloric and otherwise).

2. Building / maintaining muscle through regular exercise.

3. Staying motivated to meet goals and keeping a positive outlook.

4. Taking time out in the day just for me.

Personal Information:
I am the mom of 3 wonderful Black Belts! All are in college, and on the "right track" so to speak.

I plan to set smaller, short-term goals this year, working toward a healthier lifestyle, instead of worrying so much about the scale.

I love outdoor activities in the warmer months. Winter can't go by quickly enough for me!

Other Information:
I will live my own life, and live it well. I will neither fear fate, nor bend to its whims. Today is my future; circumstance is now my tool, it is no longer my excuse.

    I didn't know you were a singer, that's wonderful! My mother and daughter are both singers. Some how I got skipped, lol, and make more joyful noises than anything else, lolololo. Amazing, I'm sure you sounded A-mazing! Thank you for your lovely and thoughtful comments on my blogs too esp. about the praying. It's funny since I've requested that prayer, God has me "fiercely" resting in him. Almost like he's resting me up for a big feast or something. Wouldn't that be great! I rest, then get an opportunity to minister to a butt load of people soon. Hee, hee...we'll see, all I so clearly hear him saying right now is rest. So off to the pool with a shivermetimber's I suppose, lol. You have an amazing weekend dear, filled with love, joy and hope to overflow! You're the BEST! BIG HUGS!
