I am currently a 50 year old divorced mom, daughter of Christ. 4 kids, 3 cats, 2 rats, 1 dog, and one guinea pig. I have compulsive need to be a peace-keeper, which is not an easy job. I am warrior currently fighting the battle of the bulge (I may be losing), the aging process (I may be winning) and a teenage daughter (I AM winning...she just doesn't know it). I hope that not only my successes but my failures as well, will inspire, encourage, and motivate others on their journey. For anyone that would like to continue this journey together after SparkPeople vanishes, you can find me on Instagram @ReneeVH2020.

Fitness Minutes: 125,344

My Goals:
I want to be physically fit, and feel good about about myself. I told my doctor I'd love to be the weight I was in H.S., but that is probably unrealsistic. She said, "You can do anything you set your mind to." And she's right.


My Program:
Elimating all those simple carbs, watching my portion sizes, eating every few hours to keep the metabolism up and drinking plenty of water. And don't forget about getting active. I'm aiming for at least 150 minutes of cardio per week. I don't hate exercise, but cardio feels best when it's over. I'm also doing strength training cause I love muscular legs, and for a woman my size, I have really poor upper body strenghth. That needs to change!



Personal Information:


I live in hot and humid Miami, and working out from May-October is absolutely dreadful.

I spent a ton of money earning a degree in Fine Art, and wound up becoming a housewife. No regrets...my kids hand in incredible-looking projects...so it paid off.


Other Information:
I love cooking (which is how I got fat) and photography. Too busy to do much else. Some day, I would love to paint again.

    I just read your profile info. You're 50!? You look super amazing. I thought you were 40 or younger! Your skin looks perfect. You don't even have one wrinkle. You look so young and fresh. Just wanted to tell you that...๐Ÿ™‚

    emoticon emoticon FOR MOTHER'S DAY~~JUST A MOM emoticon emoticon

    She cant stand it when people say, "You're JUST a mom?"
    Yes, she is JUST A MOM!!
    That makes her an alarm clock, cook, maid, waitress,
    teacher, nurse, referee, handyman, security officer,
    photographer, counselor, chauffeur, event planner,
    hairdresser, personal assistant, & an ATM machine.
    She scares away the boogieman. She doesn't get paid holidays,
    sick pay or days off. She works DAY & NIGHT.
    She's on call 24/7 for the rest of her life.
    She's 'JUST A MOM'!!!
    She is a Mom to someone or to many and she would
    do ANYTHING on this planet for them!
    She's..... 'JUST A MOM"!!.

    emoticon emoticon emoticon HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all the MOTHER'S,
    the Mother's you have, and all the Mother's you know! emoticon emoticon emoticon
