Hey everyone!

My name is Karen and I'm working on becoming as healthy as possible! I joined spark in April 2010, mainly as a way to track my workouts and read up on health articles. I totally didn't expect such a great support system as well! :)

I'm hitting this hard, now. I've been working out consistently, and since switching gyms in December 2010, I've worked out longer and harder. I'm finally getting my act together on eating, too. I was usually pretty good about making healthy choices, but now I'm ready to plan it out and try new things!

2012 is going to be the best year yet for all aspects of my life!

Member Since: 4/6/2010

Fitness Minutes: 25,370

My Goals:
i would like to ultimately drop a size or two in clothes, and hopefully lose 15-20 pounds.

in all honesty, though, just feeling healthy and making healthy choices is more important to me than size or weight!

My Program:
i'm starting to track my food intake (thanks to this site), and work out 4-5 times a week at the gym, taking classes in body pump, body jam, zumba, spin, body flow, yoga, water aerobics, etc (in addition to my regular workouts).

i also recently ran my first 5K! it's something i never really pictured myself doing until a few months ago. i'm going to try hard to keep my running up over the winter months.

i recently started doing some jillian michaels dvds to get my butt in gear!

Personal Information:
my name is karen and i live in madison, wi. send me a message or befriend me if you'd like to connect!

Other Information:
i love to tap dance, but rarely can find the place to do it. i have taken classes on and off, but they get pricey, and aren't always the level or style that fit my needs. it's frustrating, because it's a good workout and stress buster for me. maybe eventually, i'll find my tap dancing niche!
