My spark journey...
I have been a member of spark people since April 2009 - since then I have managed to lose 25 lbs (my start weight was 167lbs) with the help of lots of exercise and a healthy nutritional intake.

I love the spark community and am thankful to all the friends I have made here who have helped me along this journey with their advice, encouragement and motivation.

My plan for 2019 is to reduce weight by at least 14lbs- with the help of spark people and my fellow cloverleaf 5% challenge team members. The weight has been creeping up gradually over the past year!!

Member Since: 4/22/2009

Fitness Minutes: 118,486

My Goals:
To lose 5% of current weight over the next 8 weeks

To stick to a structured plan.

To become more toned.

My Program:

Walk at least 30 minutes on 6 days per week.

Eat more fruit and vegetables - 3-5 portions per day.
Eat less chocolate!

Personal Information:
I am 49, married and have 2 boys aged 17 and 14.
We live in a village in Derbyshire, UK. There is a windmill in our village!
We adopted Kiba from the RSPCA 2 years ago - he helps me with my daily exercise! We have been finding more places not too far away to take him on longer walks.

Other Information:
I love reading both paperbacks and my kindle. I enjoy taking part in a reading challenge on Goodreads called Around the Year in 52 books which encourages you to choose a book from a different genre each week.
I have been a member of a 'rock choir' for 3 years now - it is a great way to meet and make new friends. Last year we recorded some songs at the famous Abbey road studios in London! In March we took part in a workshop learning the harmonies for Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen which was great fun!

I rejoined the national trust last year and have enjoyed visiting historic houses.
