Hello! Thank you so much for visiting my SparkPage. I turned 40 in 2009 so I want to make sure I'm as healthy as I can be. I need to make good food choices and exercise regularly.

Member Since: 5/5/2008

Fitness Minutes: 106,845

My Goals:
My goal is to get down to 140 pounds. I saved a pair of acid-washed jeans (circa 1988) and I would LOVE to get into them--not necessarily wear them in public--just to get into them would be awesome.

I've completed seven half-marathons and I'm going to complete my first full marathon on May 1, 2011 in Lincoln, NE.


My Program:
Regarding exercise--I find that I really have to change things up a bit every so often. If I get bored, I lose interest and don't do it. In 2008, I took four eight-week sessions of boot camp at my gym. That "sparked" my running passion and I love hot yoga and kettlebells. Not sure what's next!

I aim for eight glasses of water a day and at least five servings of fruits/vegetables, too.

    Hello my Sparkfriend!
    Sending this group note out to each one of my Sparkfriends that attended JASR 2012. Nancy did a fantastic job in the DailySpark blog recreating the great time everyone experienced! Not sure how I missed reading the upcoming 2012 event being discussed, but one thing for sure. I already marked it on my calendar so I can share in on the fun 2013, and every year after!!! WOO HOO!

    Hi Rhonda! Sorry I missed out on JASR 2012, but I WILL be there 2013!! I will be looking forward to seeing you again and giving you an extra hug for always commenting and encouraging me on my blogs and friend feeds!!

    I think I WILL stick with Anytime... once my health issues are resolved, I'll be happy to go to the gym again without unsupervised kids!!

    So sorry to hear about your injury. emoticon Hope you are able to run again soon. Have you been doing the hot yoga a lot?? It sure sounds like it would be nice in the winter (although it has been such a warm winter this year!! emoticon )

    The corn allergy is a pain. I think I will really be crying when corn on the cob season comes around!! If I avoid corn, popcorn, corn starch & corn meal, I seem to be okay. So far I haven't been affected by HFCS or dextrose or anything like that. I am trying to gradually cut all of it though (way hard!!)

    Thanks for checking in on me!! emoticon
