Running towards the woman I was always meant to be...

I was brought here as a way to help put the pieces of life back together and so far so good. Life is good now and I couldn't be happier with it. Looking for support, to give support and share in the goals and dreams with others here on this great site. Feel free to friend me here :)

My Goals:
My goals are to create the healthiest version of myself physically, spiritually and emotionally.
I would like to be able to motivate and teach others what a healthy lifestyle can do for not only your body, but your emotional health as well. It has been a while since I've updated my goals here. After losing my sister in August of 2018, the grief I've been working through has kept many goals from being completed. I'm working through it the best I can. I'm feeling stronger now, and am branching out into newer areas of creativity in my life. Hiking has become my cherished love, running is starting to happen more and more again, yoga saves me

I've discovered a love for making videos of my hikes. As I work through my creative processes, and all of the learning curves, I hope to share these with my fellow sparkers and maybe inspire someone, in some way.

- Complete the 75 Hard Challenge
- Complete the Cold Shower Challenge

My Program:
My nutrition program is still eating unprocessed, "real" food. This has helped my weight and running tremendously. I've learned to love food in its natural state and am having a great time using new spices to up some flavors.

Personal Information:
My name is Brenda, I'm 51 years old, I'm blessed with two children ages 30 and 25. I have two beautiful grandchildren, who have taught me what is most precious in life. Love. I love healthy living and strive to live it every day. I love to run and hike!

    I just read your blog about the journey. You really expressed how many of us feel and thank you for telling us how you change your mind set. I too found that I needed to change the way I think about things in order to succeed. Good luck on your journey.

    Just stopping by to say hello and to encourage you to keep moving towards your goals, Sparkfriend! Even baby steps add up if you take enough of them...and of course, you know you're worth the effort, right? I'm rooting for you!

    "The first step to living the life you want is leaving the life you don't want.
    Taking the first step forward is always the hardest.
    But then each step forward gets easier and easier.
    Each step forward gets you closer and closer until eventually, what had once been invisible starts to be visible.
    And what had once felt impossible starts to feel possible."
