I just turned 50 in 2018. It's important to me to look at 50 as "the half-way point" and be healthy into my golden years. I would love to have a toned body and to be in the best shape of my life, continuing onward. My goal right now is not only weight loss, but to keep maintaining this as a lifestyle.

I fractured my ankle Nov. 2010, and learned during the time I was in crutches that I previously took walking/running and fitness for granted. I now have a new outlook on life.

I love the outdoors. I don't want to ever stop getting outside on my two feet and want to keep enjoying the scenery.

As of June, 2017- instead of my regular strength training at the gym, I've joined a CrossFit gym with my husband. So far, so good!! I really enjoy the combo of strength, agility, endurance and also the variety of workouts. I'm on my way to being in the best shape of my life!!!

I also love to hike, bike, swim and run when I get the chance to.

I love cooking and eating delicious healthy meals, which can be a setback for me because I just enjoy the good taste of my own creations. Even though I eat clean (no junk food for me, I'm over it!) I still tend to indulge a bit with my portions so I'm working on that. I also love wine (and beer and cocktails), so I have to be mindful of how it affects my health and weight loss, and keep it to a minimum.

Everything is a work in progress!! And I believe I will reach my goals eventually. I'm feeling great, getting stronger too, and that's the most important thing.


Member Since: 6/1/2010

Fitness Minutes: 110,351

My Goals:
Being physically strong and toned.

Having lots of fun while exercising and eating well.

Go down 4-5 dress sizes. Be able to wear cute clothes again! Ultimate goal: wearing a bikini on the beach and feeling great about it!!


My Program:
Doing fun activities like hiking in the local hills, bicycling, running, swimming, hilly neighborhood walks. Crossfit class 3 days/week.

Being mindful of what I eat (portion size, learning to eat slower, paying attention to balancing meals) every day.

For a while now, I eat clean, meaning I focus upon eating 'real' food and I cook for myself most of the time. I am not a sweet tooth, either!

I'm learning how IMPORTANT it is to stay consistent, keep going, never quit, and keep pushing it a little harder over time. And keep smiling and laughing through it all!!!



Personal Information:
Born and raised in Southern California.
I work in the movie industry as a visual effects digital artist.

I love to cook delicious healthy meals!


Other Information:
Some things about me:

*Happily married to a man I adore and look forward to growing old with.

*I love connecting with good people, and I love music, art, painting, working out, swimming, cooking, bettering myself spiritually, hiking, camping, sailing, travel/exploring, learning, cafes and wineries.

*I tend to work long hours but love what I do; I think that it is very important to pursue your dreams and goals.

    Today is cloudy, but should be dry. Tomorrow another storm will pass through. I will try and work more with my potted plants today if they aren't too soggy lol. Or at least mentally come up with a design for the front yard plant wise. Keep your rain boots handy! emoticon

    I read where the lower desert had a few flowers, or foliage, starting to pop up as well. 2015 we had a lot of wildflowers. Plenty in Quartz Hills. That's where I took the pictures of Sarge and Alice. I have a blog about it, but you would have to do some searching lol.
