It's AWESOME! to be ME!

Update 8/17/14:
I'M BACK!!!! After a few tough personal years, I'm rejuvenated and bringing myself back to garner support from fellow sparkers. After my move in 2010, I made a best ditch effort to continue my fitness goals, but got sidetracked along the way. RI had many beautiful venues to keep me active, and I was honestly uninspired in my new home state.

I'M BACK!!!! After a few tough personal years, I'm rejuvenated and bringing myself back to garner support from fellow sparkers. After my move in 2010, I made a best ditch effort to continue my fitness goals, but got sidetracked along the way. RI had many beautiful venues to keep me active, and I was honestly uninspired in my new home state. Since moving, I did complete two half marathons early on, and recently (early this summer) completed the Insanity program....however, after completing it, I went on a fitness hiatus.

I am going back to my tried and true, Body For Life, regime. I find with my work schedule, this program is where I will see results. I believe the key is diet mainly, with a balance of weight training and cardio. But its such an easy program to follow when you prepare and organize...so, if you're on this program, or need or can lend support, send me a message.


Update: 12/29/11 -- I've been out of touch for quite some time. Since moving south, I've lost a bit of focus after finishing two half-marathons in April 2010. I still go to the gym, run, and try to eat decent, but still the weight is creeping on.

I figured if anyone can get me back on track...its ME! It has to be me, right? But, I've come back to SparkPeople for motivation.

I'm updated my goals to the right, and with a goal to keep me in line, I WILL be successful !!

Update: 9/1/10 -- Currently training for my 3rd triathlon on 10/2/10. I've slipped a bit since moving back to WV. A hip injury in April set me back about 5-6 weeks. I'm trying to get focused, get used to the miserable heat this summer, and do my best.

12/29/09: On January 4th, I will leave Rhode Island after 7 1/2 years of falling in love with the little state. Returning to my home state of West Virginia, I will begin a career I've dreamed of for many years. In the process of doing this, a total life change is coming about. I'm excited and ready to make it happen.

Thanks to all my spark buddies that inspire and encourage me along my path to adventure and fitness!!

My Program:
12/29/11: I've decided to go heavy....WHAT? yes! lifting heavy using the Jamie Eason LIVE FIT program.

Hey!

I missed your message!

I do not know about "killing" obstacles per se, I am hoping just to get over the 5 foot wall ;)

The group run sounds like fun. Do they do any other days than Wednesdays?

Hey Carol!

It's official, I am signed up too, 9AM preferred wave! It looks like it is going to be a great time. There is an indoor obstacle course gym in Providence (near Port of Providence) that I want to try out before race day, we should try it!

Also - I am thinking costume for sure...

Welcome Back!!

I work in MA on some days too - gotta love the traffic! I do not know about faster - I am SUPER uncoordinated! I can run but obstacles - you have no idea! I will make sure to sign up before the increase coming soon, it looks like a ton of fun!

I hope that you enjoy this 50 degree weather this weekend - I am thinking of going to the beach ;)

Now that you are back in RI we should get together sometime

Hey Carol!

I saw your comment today about the Warrior Dash on 5/7, I would be happy to do it! I have a marathon the following weekend in Maine but the weekend of the 7th would be good.

Are you back in RI to stay?
