On my 47th birthday, I made a commitment to give myself the gift of a new body. Starting with a total of fifty pounds total to lose, I made it to the halfway point on June 25, 2010. I am working towards being a vibrant, active, fit, and inspiring mom to my 7 year old daughter, and an energetic and sexy wife to my husband!

Two of my passions in life are my family, and my music. I am a singer/songwriter of "Posi" or positive music, a new, emerging genre of music of which I'm a huge fan. Search for "The JaJa's" on facebook and friend me for free streaming!

My third and most recent passion in life is ROLLERSKATING! Yes, you heard it right! My daughter and I signed up for skating lessons together (see pic at left). Did you know you can burn 700-1500 calories per session? We are having a blast. I'm learning how to skate backwards!!!

Anyway, enough about me! Thanks for stopping by, please check out my blogs, would love to see your comments on any criss-cross effects you've seen pop up in your life from reading The Spark, and don't be surprised if your story inspires a song!!!
