Well, I did not make my fit for 40 goal when I originally joined at age 38! LIFE HAPPENED! We moved to Germany, my husband went on his 5th deployment only 3 weeks after arriving in Germany and he came home with his PTSD worse than ever. Now we are back in Pennsylvania, he is pending a medical retirement from the Army and after a year of turmoil and all the side effects of PTSD we are trying to get to our "new normal" life. So...I am back on Spark! I did great on here before and don't knwo why I stopped loggin in. I am commited and this is what keeps me on track so here it goes...2013 is my year!

Fitness Minutes: 7,486

My Goals:
My goals are:
1. To get my resting heart rate 20 points lower, it has been high for some reason and it concerns me because my Dad died of heart disease.
2. I want to be in the top 10 for exercise minutes for November and December 2010 in a fitness group.
3.To leave for Germany in June 2011 at my goal weight!

My Program:
1. Staying focused on Spark with help me bring down my HR. It will be a combination of eating and exercising to achieve this.
2. I added a fitness tracker to my goals of doing an extra 60 mintes of walking everyday no matter what I did that day for exercise to achieve max points in fitness group.
3. Work hard and make wise choices to achieve my goal weight!

I have been overweight for quite a few years now and am commited to getting healthy. I did have a lapband surgery in Feb 2010 and have had success with it, but it is a tool to lose weight and I stopped my routine over the summer and my feet got stuck in the mud! Time to reclaim my motivation and RUN with it!
