I've been seriously involved in fitness for 24 1/2 years. I've been a competitive bodybuilder/powerlifter and personal trainer and teach all types of group fitness. About 4 years ago my hands started to crack and bleed. Mostly the index and middle fingers on both hands. I've been a dog groomer and a volunteer at animal shelters for many, many years. So, when I went to several doctors, they told me that I was allergic. I ran a marathon in 2003 after recovering from an ear infection that was misdiagnosed as a brain tumor. I ran over 500 miles getting ready for it and I'm NOT a runner, but needed to celebrate not having a tumor. I did not loose even 1 lb.!!! I was 140# at that point. I am now 151# and have just recently been diagnosed with Thyroid disease. It turns out that that was the problem with my fingers all of those years. I am committed to the weight loss and feel in control. I like to be in control. For awhile, I felt that I wasn't. It felt like I was on a wild ride. But now with my thyroid medication leveled out and this wonderful Sparkpeople site, I know that I can reach my goals!!!!!!!!!

Member Since: 10/18/2006

Fitness Minutes: 0

My Goals:
I want to loose 16 pounds and get my energy level back up. I''m on synthroid.

My Program:
I do some type of exercise everyday. I''m not on a set schedule right now so I go by the "instinctive" method. I like to break up my workouts into a couple of muscle groups per day. Today was leg day. Leg press, abductor/adductor, hams, calves and step aerobics. I had to put together a routine to teach in the morning. It''s been over a year since I taught step...boy, are they in for a treat! While I''m at the gym, I''ll get a bench workout in and finish up with a bag workout later in the day.

Personal Information:
Originally from the East Coast, I''ve lived in all areas of the U.S. except the New England states. We lived in Ojai and Ventura, Santa Barbara area for almost 10 years. That was beautiul country. I enjoyed riding my motorcycle up into the Topa Topa Mountains and going to the very top and looking down.

Other Information:
I believe in the law of it out and you will be served back the same...
kindness to animals is priority on my list and it''s hard for me to watch the news because of so much abuse. I believe that we are where we are supposed to be at any given time, whether to help out or learn a lesson or teach a lesson...I pray often, every day. I try to surround myself with positive people. The Goodness of Life shines through.

    I am so sorry to hear about Amos, my heart goes out to you. We are living in a dog less home right now and I feel the pain that you are going through. All of my babies have crossed the rainbow bridge and have left us with broken hearts. I send out a great big hug to you and your family. emoticon emoticon

    Thank you so much for the Spark Goodie! I love your puppy-dog picture, they are so cute. How do you get all of them to stay still for a picture, I used to have to take one at a time, or deal with one dog looking off at Dad or the wind blowing, etc.

    Thanks again, and see you on the boards!
