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.

    Well, I have done it!!! And I pushed myself to go as far as I could. I did 2.75 miles in 29 minutes! No record breaker but it got me going and it was great. Got some aggression out of my system in the process!!!

    And I think I inspired another parent to start. She also had been putting off getting started and after seeing me she is going to go for a run first thing tomorrow! We really underestimate the power we have to influence others, even across the oceans! Thanks again. Now I just have to keep it up!

    Not on an actual "team" yet....gotta pass testing before we can be drafted. So I probably won't be able to play in a real bout for about 3 months. But we do scrimmages sometimes on Sundays in SLO at Santa Rosa Park! :D I hope to be in one of those SOON!! LOL! FINGERS CROSSED
    So...... My League is Central Coast Roller Derby
