I have reset my spark information numerous times. In the past, I have relied on motivation to carry me through. Motivation doesn''t last. You need determination to succeed. Which means pushing yourself through even when you don''t want to. This time around, I am going to utilize more of the SparkPeople features (including blogging more) and I will work on not making excuses. After all, my three boys are watching me and learning from me daily. What am I teaching them about determination and self discipline if I don't follow through? Plus, now they enjoy exercising with me. Its becoming a fun family activity. I need to continue, to succeed because they enjoy spending this time with me and I want to enjoy it for as long as I can.

My Goals:
My goal is to get healthy. I want to lose enough weight to wear normal clothes. Right now, I wear 24 in pants, I'd like to get to a 15 or smaller. I also want to rid myself of back and hip pain. I don't really care if my pounds drop, as long as I am healthy and in less pain.

My Program:
I am trying to create healthy habits. Its challenging and its all I can focus on at the moment.

Personal Information:
I am from a small town in Indiana. I am 38 years old, mother to a rambunctious 8 year old, an energetic 4 year old, and a wild 2 year old. I am trying to be a good mom, as well as trying to become a published author. I am a radio broadcast journalist, currently working as the News Director for a local radio station.

Other Information:
I like to read. I love reading fantasy, horror, mystery and even some drama. Pretty much anything but romance.
