Hi. I am Rachael. I live in south central PA. I have 2 adult sons who make me very proud and a beautiful baby granddaughter. I work with adults with intellectual disabilities. I am a state and local park junkie. I like to go sit on a bench and get lost looking at the lakes, the trees and nature within. For this reason it's hard for me to exercise at the parks I love to frequent. I have always wanted to hike and haven't done so since my kids were little. But as I lose weight and grow stronger, there is always that hope. I thoroughly enjoy going to the gym as I finally found a small gym this past year that is everything I have been looking for in a place to work out. Everyone there is so nice and helpful! Cooking has always been an issue for me and sometime I try recipes but mostly I stick to the basics. I hope to try the Spark recipes and learn some new things as time goes on.

Fitness Minutes: 3,274

My Goals:
I would like to lose weight, get more fit and enjoy my life today (not just after I lose the weight).

Learn to live (and eat) mindfully.

To track every day no matter what! I have learned this is the only way I will be successful

My Program:
Eat mostly whole foods and give up the processed stuff, using the Spark People tracker.
Drink more water and less diet coke and things with artificial sweeteners.
Go to the gym 4x a week, maybe going to the park to walk on nice days. Mix up my cardio with my weights which I love doing.
