UPDATED SP NAME FROM WMUGRAD

"It may be alright to be content with what you have never with what you are."

You can succeed if nobody else believes it, but you will never succeed if you don't believe in yourself.
- William J. H. Boetcker

Fitness Minutes: 60,008

My Goals:

* Be proud of the success that I have made.
* Make healthy choices


My Program:
*Track weight every Friday.

*Tracking fitness and food everyday.
*10k steps minimum

* Daily activity/memory building with my girls
*Give myself "Me Time"
*Self- ACCEPTANCE! (most important)



Personal Information:
I am a 31 year old who is determined to get into shape and healthy. I started using Sparkpeople in 2008 when I was preparing for my wedding. In 2010 I buckled down and lost 30 lbs using Sparkpeople everyday. I tracked my food and fitness and was super excited and proud of my successes. Life and all of its celebrations and challenges happened, I fell off, lost my spark and honestly felt as if I could do this without this community. I gained and lost for many years.

I live in the Kalamazoo, MI area and married my best friend on Dec. 19th 2009. We had our first child in April 2015 and our second in October 2016. Now having two daughters of my own I feel like it is even more important that I learn to love my body in its stages and transitions. I am healthy but the weight and the tag along body image worries me about what I may model for my little ones. While the goal is to lose weight and feel good in my clothing, the overarching goal is to model health and living a positive life.


Other Information:
Pre-children I was running half marathons and cycling. Now I spend a lot of time gardening, walking and some riding sprinkled in. I am using fitbit to track my steps, I work on at the gym and at home (DVDS, weights, bands, and treadmill).

    Hi! Thanks for reaching out :) I've added you and would love to talk kiddos and postpartum exercise/weight loss! This community is truly inspiring and it's always great to have more friends -- virtual and otherwise. Wishing you a happy 4th! emoticon

    I thought about you during my last half marathon! More specifically I thought about how it would have paid off to have actually gone to my half marathon training class LOL. I remembered your blog about one of your final runs prior to your half marathon a while back and how awesome you felt! I hope you are doing well, and still running and such! I am just coming back to spark and hope to see you around!

    Hi Heather. Wanted to stop by to say hello and see how you've been. I've been struggling but I'm still hanging in there by rolling with the punches. I'm more determined than ever to do whatever's needed to be successful.

    Wishing you a wonderful week!
