I changed my Profile name from LADILADIDA to THE HINKS to reflect the new focus in my life as a performing artist in my voice and piano duo with my husband.

Every day forward I put my personal health, wellness and joyful pursuit of my best life to the forefront.

I have lost 80 lbs in the past and maintained that weight loss for 3 years. Injury due to over zealousness and a focus on other aspects of my life led me back to my current weight and measurements. I navigate this journey with most of the knowledge, wisdom and power necessary to accomplish my goals and maintain a healthy lifestyle going forward. The rest that I don't know will be a new exploration from this new me I present to the world daily.

Starting Simple:
ITrack Nutrition
I Drink Water.

I Meditate.

I Enjoy the Outdoors.
I Share the Experience with Others.
I Sleep Well.
I Measure Progress.
I Adjust as Needed.
I Continue Reaping the Benefits Forever.

    Hey, thanks so much for your comment, I almost started crying when I read it, but in a good way. Things did get better, at least a little. I read some inspirational blogs and remembered that post about that sparkpeople member who didn't budge from 160 but went from a size 12 to a 6. I tried to just eat when I was hungry today. I went to my friday night gym date with myself and was able to do all the hard moves and jump like I could pre-c-section. Thanks for being there. The night is always darkest before the dawn, right? Most of all, thank you for saying that I am worth something because I am me, not because of all the things I'm supposed to do or take care of. I need to remember that more.

    Thank you so much for your comments and support. After I wrote that blog I just felt so at peace. It's like I finally turned this huge corner in my life. Last night I went through all the arias that I know and picked out a soprano list and a mezzo list that I felt good about and I think I can do right now as I am. I start practicing tomorrow! You are also so right about singing because you love it and not to be somebody. That's what I've so been struggling with. I will probably still struggle with some part of that always, but I think it will be a lot better now.

    Thank you for your suggestion of seeking out a yoga teacher. That's a great idea. I've been taking a class on how our thoughts create our reality and I've been looking into the energy of the body and this fits right in line with what you are saying. Hope you had a fun vacation!
