Today is day 1 of the rest of my life. I joined SP in 2012 bouncing from 180 to 160 but it seems like happy medium is 170. I don’t like any of those numbers. Today I wiped all of my about me and will reset everything here. Why? 1. I’m a full time wife, mother, and student. 2. My mom died a couple of months ago. 3. I have asthma and high cholesterol that is being managed my medication. 4. I have serious back issues that were exasperated when caring for my mom. 5. God is bigger than anything and I need to take control of my daily habits. I’m done with hurting. I’m done with not being able to do what I enjoy. I need to keep moving forward. Goals: See neurosurgeon. Get tested for allergies. Find a workable anti-inflammatory meal plan while I’m in college, and can be flexible for when I’m working. (And one flavorful for hubs) Loose 5 pounds a month. Not harsh myself. Here’s to the first day of the rest of my life.

Member Since: 5/10/2010

Fitness Minutes: 20,977

My Goals:
I'm 40 something and need to be in better condition and lower triglycerides.

Long term:
Get to 140 pounds by my birthday 2016. (see new goals under update)

Short term:
Eat healthier and track intake.
Spend more time being active a day, at least 10, and track it.

Feel and look healthier.
Lower cholesterol
Set a good example to my family.

My Program:
SparkPeople calorie intake guidelines.
Walk 5 miles or more a week.
Get out into the Red Rock/Sedona area of my neighborhood.
Be active, 10 minutes a day, doing whatever makes me happy.

Personal Information:
I live in Arizona now. Have been married since 1991 and have a son with autism.
I was homeschooling him and he's now in public school. That is an answer to my prayers and better for my health. He did not like going outside, and I LOVE going outside!
I work for God in everything I do and my health should not be left out!

Other Information:
Whew! My days are busy!

I read my Bible and find strength and encouragement in it. I have a bestie friend who has a heart condition and understands.

God bless you all! You CAN do this!

    Hi! I know you are probably very busy but I just wanted to tell you that I miss reading your posts. I hope your son is doing okay. My son has been going to special needs scouts and he is loving it. Last Thursday they went to the pool and he had alot of fun diving off the high board. It kind of scared me but he did fine. Take care and stop over on my page and say hey when you get a chance! God bless you! -Janel

    OMG....not been on SP for a bit....have been soooo swamped busy but still very active! Just not documenting as much. Kind of a test of sorts to see if i can still find success in just living and making good choices. I hope your new semester of school is going well. Miss you!!
