My name is Jenna and I just turned 31. I came to a few hard truths about myself recently, the main one being that I want to be healthier and feel comfortable and pretty in my own body again. I used to be thin years ago but due to inactivity and bad eating habits I slowly began gaining weight. I was also diagnosed as Bipolar years ago and the meds added to the weight gain. I've come to the point where there is no more looking back, no more waiting on the sidelines. If I want to lose weight and get into shape I have to take the bull by the horns and actually work for it. The only thing holding me back was myself and my fears. So look out world here I come!

Our lives are not determined by what happens to us but by how we react to what happens, not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life. A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes. It is a catalyst, a spark that creates extraordinary results. ~Anonymous

Fitness Minutes: 1,323

My Goals:
I want to lose at least two pounds a week. My goal is to workout no less than 5 days a week for 1 hour a day. My goal for calories is to burn at 2000.

My Program:
A friend of mine has decided to work out with me some. I work 40 minutes at least on the treadmill, 20 on the bike and as long as we can on the elyptical. Did I mention I suck at that last one?? We also stick in zumba workouts and the WII Fit Plus workouts to shake things up.

Personal Information:
My name is Jenna. I'm 31 and reside in Baton Rouge LA. I'm an artist and a writer. I love trying new things, I was even a stand up comic at one point. lol... I have an extreme passion for music, everything from classical to hard rock. Some of my fave bands are Papa Roach, Within Temptation, Kelly Clarkson, Taylor Swift, and anything 80's. My day isn't complete without me having a cd or the radio on. I'm also a huge movie buff. Comedies such as the Lethal Weapon series and horror like Nightmare on Elm Street (the original). I also love to read. I like old school Stephen KIng, Laurell K Hamilton and yes the Twilight series. My view on life is to live life to the fullest and be sure to smile and laugh at least once a day.

Other Information:
"Willpower is the key to success. Successful people strive no matter what they feel by applying their will to overcome apathy, doubt or fear." - Dan Millman

Change has a considerable psychological impact on the human mind. To the fearful it is threatening because it means that things may get worse. To the hopeful it is encouraging because things may get better. To the confident it is inspiring because the challenge exists to make things better. ~King Whitney jr

"I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together." ~Marilyn Monroe

    The VERY First meteor shower of the year will begin tonight and will peak in the early hours of January 4th. The Quadrantids are well known for producing exceptionally bright meteors so don’t miss out. The will be visible from all around the world , but for the best view will be from the northern hemisphere.

    Have a wonderful Sparking Day! emoticon

    Hi - Just popping by to see how things are going with you.
    As a leader of the Inner Journey spark team I would like to encourage you to stop by the team page and check out the many team threads. Keeping active on a spark team is a great way to stay focused and on track for reaching your goals.
    With a new year about to begin it is also a wonderful opportunity to get out your journal and/or blog about your new (and/or old and updated) goals for 2013.
    Let's Make this Year a Year to Remember!!
