I have been a regular on SP for 2 years now and LOVE it! I started homeschooling my 4 little girls this school year and must challenge myself, daily, as to how and where I am going to fit in exercise! I have lost 30lbs by making small goals and working towards them-nothing extreme-just simple fitness and nutrition goals. I have ran a 10k race & Half Marathon. I tell anyone who will listen how wonderful this site is!

***January 2011***
I choose to stay on track to lose weight. I joined sparkpeople July 2010 but did nothing with it. Kinda browsed the site with no goals in mind. I just wasn't ready. Finally in January 2011, I saw the bootcamp challenge and thought I would give it a try. I've been motivated ever since. Here I go. I am very excited to see what my potential is!
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
I LOVE CHALLENGES...

INSTEAD OF WONDERING WHEN YOUR NEXT VACATION IS, MAYBE YOU SHOULD SET UP A LIFE YOU DON'T NEED TO ESCAPE FROM.

YOUR CHILDREN WILL BECOME WHAT YOU ARE; SO BE WHAT YOU WANT THEM TO BE.

TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO HAVE A GOOD DAY.

WHEN YOU WANT SOMETHING YOU'VE NEVER HAD, YOU HAVE TO DO SOMETHING YOU'VE NEVER DONE.

MAKE EVERYDAY COUNT...LIVE PURPOSEFULLY, LIVE ENERGETICALLY, LIVE COMPLETELY.

DISCIPLINE IS REMEMBERING WHAT YOU WANT.

IF WE DEFEND OUR HABITS, WE HAVE NO INTENTION OF QUITTING THEM.

SUCCESS IS A JOURNEY, NOT A DESTINATION. FOCUS ON THE PROCESS.

SUCCESS IS THE SUM OF SMALL EFFORTS, REPEATED DAY IN AND DAY OUT.

BY EXERCISING PATIENCE WITH ALL PEOPLE, YOU ARE ALLOWING THEM TO BECOME BETTER AND TO LEARN ON THEIR OWN THROUGH GENTLE GUIDANCE.

There are only 2 times I have to work out-when I want to and when I don't want to

Personal Information:
I have 1 son who is my second born. His name is Evan. He passed away at 18 months and his death forever changed me. It was such a sad time for my family. My only strength was to turn to God. I have chosen to live this life I lead the best I know how. Happiness does not come easy for most but you can choose to wake up and have a good day. I choose to be positive for myself, my husband and my children.


Other Information:
We raise chickens for the healthy eggs and meat.

I want to say that all of you inspire me. You are part of my morning ritual which includes a cup of coffee while reading your pages. It's a great start to the day and gets me motivated to get my workouts in. THANK-YOU!!

I am a homeschooling, stay-at-home mom to 4. I love being outside with them. I hope to be a role model by trying to use the space around my home for activity.

    Thanks for the vote of confidence on my blog.
    Confidence is one things I've been lacking.

    Hi, girl! Thank you for commenting on my blog the other day. I've been meaning to get back to you ever since the day I read it but I've been really busy with many things. This was really one of the greatest and wisest comments I've read. And I wish you would have gone on and on about the subject of becoming the "who" instead of the "what" we've dreamed of. You're right, this is more important and we rarely change our minds on the kind of people we want to be. You always seem to have the right thing to say on any life subject. So, among the many things I'd like to be, I would also like to be a good friend of yours, if that's ok with you!

    How are you enjoying your fall in Alberta? How is homeschooling this year? I was just wondering, for how many years do you intend to homeschool? Can you do this until they get to college? Is this even an option at your educational system? Homeschooling is not an option for us here at any stage. Going to school is mandatory.
    I hope all is well for you and your family.
    Take care.

    thank you for your encouragement on my blog. The wedding is this weekend and my sister has called 3 times and it's only Tuesday! But I am back to tracking everything and I feel better, and stronger today.


    Thank you.

    Thanks for checking on me. I'm doing much better this weekend then I was a few days ago. It's amazing how much my attitude has changed just by getting in 2 runs this weekend. They weren't even great runs, but I really do feel more positive now. Hope I can stick with it! Hope you're having a great weekend! (((HUGS)))
