It is time to get this body in shape for once and for all. I did Weight Watchers in 2012-2013 and did very well, but didn't exercise much. During "maintenance" I put all but 10 lbs back on. So, now I have decided this absolutely has to be a lifestyle change forever!! No more goofing around. I am not a great lover of exercise but once I get into a routine and start feeling better about myself I will stick to it. The key is not missing a day of excuses.

I am definitely loving moving more.

Member Since: 1/20/2013

Fitness Minutes: 47,408

My Goals:
Make Health & Fitness and priority.

Run, or atleast jog, a 5k by June 2014.

Be the best Wife/Mom/Grandmom I can be.

Finish my BSN by 2020.

My Program:
I am just getting back into the swing of exercise (Dec 2013). I figured better to start before the new year rather than make it a resolution. My goal for right now is walking 7,000 steps a day (but am really averaging toward 10-11,000) and walking/jogging atleast 3 miles per day. I also do crunches, pushups, free weights, Slim in 6, and The Firm.

Personal Information:
My name is Alisa and I am from Maryland. I am 46 yo and have a daughter who gave me a handsome grandson almost two years ago. I work full time and go to school part time for my BSN. I am striving to be in the best shape possible to be an example to everyone I am close to at home and on SP.

Other Information:
I love to read mysteries and some romance, preferably with a mystery twist. I love many different authors; Tess Gerritsen, Lisa Gardner, some Nora Roberts, Mary Higgins Clark, Beverly Lewis and many more. I love to knit and crochet as it is very calming.

    Thanks for visiting my Sparkpage - it is such a small world. I grew up in Lutherville and went to Towson High School and had my baby at GBMC 39 years ago (and my sister was in the ICU at GBMC before she was transferred to hospice just this past September). I am actually an assistant professor at University of Maryland School of Nursing and I have taught in the BSN program there (now I'm teaching in the graduate program). Nursing was a second career for me and I just finished my PhD at age 57. So you will do just fine at nursing school. I will be here to offer you support as you go through the program.
