I'm a 40 year old real estate appraisal office manager with two daughters. In my pre-child life I was a reporter and a writer. I still fancy myself a writer, though I don't practice my craft as much as I should. I like to knit and make play dolls.

I have been a faithful sparker in the past but fell off the wagon when I started working again. When I turned 40 two months ago, I decided that this year I would focus on myself. I refuse to become diabetic (it runs in the family!). I refuse to feel bad about myself (as long as I know I'm doing what I can to be healthy, that's good enough for me!). And I want arms like Joan Jett.

I'm here at Sparkpeople to motivate myself to get back into a decent shape so I can fit in my jeans and lingerie. :)

Winter Goals...

1. Cardio three days a week.

2. Strength training three days a week .

3. Stop talking bad to myself in my head.

4. Be proud of how I look. Period.

5.Just do it!

6. Let it go at the end of the day!

7. Live succulently!

Member Since: 6/27/2008

Fitness Minutes: 2,036

My Goals:
I'd like to lose 25 pounds, wear smaller jeans and see a reduction in my blood sugar number, which is only slightly high. I DO NOT want to become thin again (I used to be)- I like my curves. :)

My Program:
I'm on the treadmill three or four days a week, but only for about 10 minutes. Then I spend the rest of my gym time working with kettlebells and bodyweight training. Stronger and healthier, that's all I want.

Personal Information:
I live in the foothills of the western North Carolina mountains. I'm truly Southern, born and bred. I'm a proud Carolina Gamecock alum.

Other Information:
I knit, read, write and make dolls. I like to talk and read. And I like having friends to talk back and forth with online. :)

    LOL! Have fun!

    Even if it does kick your butt from here to next Tuesday, just know that it does get easier! I tried a Cathe Step workout today that I have never done. I was pretty much left for dead but I loved every minute of it!
