I am a 38 year old woman who has let years and pounds add up. I am finding a balance between whole foods/sorta paleo/nourishing traditions living, hiking, outdoor activities and reality of single parenting, working full time and having a life full of adventure!

Life seems to be changing drastically as I refigure out who I am. When I began Sparkpeople a year ago I was living in Arkansas, had a house full of foster children and my own children and was working towards my first 5K. July of this year my children were in a terrible accident which precipitated a huge change of events. Now, I am living back in Oregon, in a cottage by the sea and only have two children with me. Life has changed!

SO! I have joined the gym, I am going 5-6 days per week, spending a lot of time hiking outdoors, I am determined to get fit by FORTY! but Now... even more pressing... The love of my life is relocating from Arkansas to Oregon in March! I want many many wonderful years with him.... SO fitness has catapulted to the top of the priority list!

What a journey...

    On your status, I know that is where I fall short of but keep up the work and stay motivated and you will be okay. I have to get motivated with my exercise as well.

    Just checking in to see how you are doing. Saw your status and wasn't sure why a short walk was a bad idea. Take care.

    "Many things are simply not going to happen with just one, or three, or even a dozen attempts. Yet anything becomes possible with enough persistence.
    Keep going, and allow your efforts to build upon one another. Keep going, and transform the disappointments into achievements.
    You have what it takes to keep going, because all it ever takes is just one more step forward.
    Keep going, and work your way steadily to the richest rewards you can imagine."
    -- Ralph Marston
