Anna's Spark Page

Spark People.com is one of the best discovery in my life! I have lost 29 lbs, toned my tush and other areas of my body that needed less excess fat, learned to eat healthy and gained a tremendous amount of friends, confidence, and support!

I totally recommend this site to anyone, fit and unfit, healthy or unhealthy, abled or disabled. There is so much information in one place that it's amazing.

SparkPoints: 102,350

Fitness Minutes: 78,744

My Goals:
Short Term Goals for 2 months or Mar 30:
1. Increase elliptical efficiency from 849 calories in 85 min. to 870.
2. Decrease my cardio time from 120 to 85 to burn 1000 cals.
3. Increase my resistance weight from 15 lbs to 18 lbs. and resistance bands to heavy or maximum.
4. Eat a larger lunch by adding almonds or yogurt at noon or add an afternoon snack.

Long Term Goals for 6 months or July 31: 1: Decrease my overall fitness time from 2-3 hrs to 2 hrs.
2. Decrease Cardio time from 200-120 min. to 60-85 min. by adding HIITS at 5-10 min intervals.
3. Increase my resistance weight from 15 lbs to 20 for dumb bells and use maximum resistance bands.
4. Integrate Medicine Ball work out into my proram. Convert 1/2 a session per week to do yoga or pilates.
5. Decrease Overall fitness days from 7 to 6 to allow one day of rest per week or one day just to do yoga/pilates.
6. Improve my daily calorie distribution with breakfast at 30%, lunch

My Program:
I am not getting any younger and the demands of my job as an OT will not get any easier so I will increase my overall strength. Develop a better ratio of cardi, strengthening and stretching to meet this objective. I will continue to improve my eating habits. I want to eat bigger meals at breakfast and lunch daily, which is a big change for me. I consume about 200 calories in the morning and at noon. The remainder of my food consumed is in the evening.

I have spent many years doing heavy cardio and very little strengthening and stretching. I will exercise daily with a better ratio of weight training with the maximum resistance on my elliptical for 80-100 min. My weight training will be increased from 60-100 min and stretch 10 to 15 min.

Personal Information:
I live in Lexington, KY with my best friend/husband and our amazing daughter. I work as occupational therapist with plans to take a Director of Rehab position. I love God, my family, the patients I treat and SP!

Other Information:
My hobby is fitness, restoring Vintage Barbies, reading, sailing, scuba diving and skiing. I love to travel and read when I have the time.

I try to keep up with politics and world affairs.

Thank you Anna, for your sweet message on my page. I have chronic pain, so it's tough, but I do my best to get through it. I'm on strong meds. to help me, but there's still pain, just like my Rheumatoligist told me would happen. There isn't a cure for Rheumatoid Arthritis, just ways to cope and the meds. do a good job at slowing the progression of the disease and sometimes even put it in remission. Now that would be nice, but I'm not holding my breath for it! Every day I'm just so thankful to be as good as I am. Without these meds., I'd be pretty much in bed, writhing with pain. Thankful? Oh yes, I am! I can tell you horror stories of what I was like before being diagnosed and therefore, before meds.! I truly am sorry for your pain, but I know that you're strong and endure it too. Must love and hugs to you, Karen

ps...........I hope that you have a great hump day too!!

Thanks Anna! I try to get around as good as I can. I know it's not near enuf though, but I keep at it. Little by little, one way or another, I'll lose this weight, but not the easiest this way. I'm persevering!! I hope that you have a good weekend too!!

I've been having a pretty pain-free week-end. I have a brace on my bad knee and that sure helps along with the Cortisone shot. I took two 15+ min. walks today to track and that felt pretty good without much pain! I'm resting my knee now. I hope that you have a great week ahead too and look out August......here we come!! emoticon I really need to get serious. Today's been good! emoticon
