Back to Basics!!! I lost about 35 puonds in 2007 and I have been struggling a lot with injuries and a busy schedule. I am going to refocus as much as I can for 2012 before it starts. I will schedule time for myself to workout as well as continue in my skating. I want to have the energy I need to do everything I want. I don't want to be so tired at the end of the day that I can barely stay awake.

I am married and have 4 kids and a grandson. I am very active in skating and scouts. I have one daughter off at college and two still in High School. I am focusing on me and my goals and my family is very supportive but I need to remember to focus on me so I can be here for them.
