I'm choosing to move forward without forgetting where I've come from. It's not always easy, but it's certainly worth the effort.

"Running is a great sport because anybody can do it. Being a runner is hardcore because most people will not take the time or effort."

I've been a part of SparkPeople for one year. Or should I say, SparkPeople has been a part of ME for one year. The year was going to pass, with or without me doing anything to improve my life. I'm glad I decided to do something about it, and I'm uber-glad I was introduced to SparkPeople one year ago today.

I'm celebrating life. I'm celebrating sweat and muscle, and Anjou pears and Quinoa, and acceleration gliders and 30/30 run/walk/run intervals, and clothes that fit and an attitude full of goof and sass.
Let's do this thing - together!

Hi. My name is Candy, and I'm 42 y/o at the time of this writing. I'm bound and determined to kick fat's *ss off my body and reclaim it as my own. My body, that is.. not the fat. This is for me. Onward...

Sweat is the cologne of accomplishment.
Heywood Broun

Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.

Personal Information:
I was born and raised in W.Va., and moved to Portland, OR, in May of 2006.

I've been married 4 years to my fabulous husband Bill, and have one daughter, two step-daughters, three almost-sons-in-law, and three step-grandkids! And three lhasa apsos who are my babies.

I've been involved in helping others almost my entire adult life, in one way or another.

I have a sharp sense of humor, use my sarcasm a bit too much sometimes, and love a good hard, bring tears to your eyes laugh.

I started volunteering at the Oregon Humane Society in June 2012. This is some of the most fulfilling work I've done in my life and now I finally know what I want to be if/when I ever grow up - an advocate for companion animals.
