Update: January 2014
Life is a journey, I have always said this. My journey this year includes a few simple goals. I say simple, but I don't really mean it. Play in Vegas this year (I couldn't play last year). Get back to my pre injury weight (almost there) and maintain it. And last but certainly not least, figure out my life. Oh, that's all, lol. Join me, follow me, let me follow you. Please be a part of my journey :)

Today (July 2012) I am very close to my goal weight and maintaining, yay me!

Whatever curve ball life throws at you, SparkPeople is a great place to be! I am having ACL (knee) surgery in a week and with the help of my Spriends, I will hit this one out of the ball park!

Came to Spark in 2011, just to lose a few pounds and be proactive about my health. I learned to eat healthier, try new activities and lean on new friends for support.

    School has been a nice change of pace for us, though we feel blessed to be able to do it full time while still getting a salary and getting tuition covered too. After the last tour in Iraq, grad school has been a great time to reconnect with the family, get back into shape (and healthier) and invest in my education/qualification.

    Are you thinking about going back to school? If so, in what?

    Thank you for supporting me on my running blog! Running is something I've always hated because people just told me to run - not HOW to run. It's still not my favorite but I'm getting there. :)

    Thank you for your comments on my blog entry. You had a good suggestion, I have been able to do that in the past and will work to create more opportunities like that for her. Thanks!

    Thanks for your comment on my doggies in the pool picture! I will admit that the hair in the pool filter is a steep price to pay, but we do have one that won't go in the pool, she just runs around the dek barking her head off at them!

    Have a great day!
