getting stoked for SUP!

I am so proud of myself for killing that intermediate flow class. All that anxiety was for nothing.

Hi Lovely Friends!

In 2012 I was 207lbs & I had the realization that I needed to make a change.I found Spark & I tracked, ate within my ranges, made it priority to work out harder than ever and 50lbs came off & have stayed off. Currently I am still not 100% at my "goal weight", but I have come to reflect on those years & I realized, although I lost that weight, I was the most stressed out,obsessive and unhappy while dieting.
I am resetting my life. I have achieved so many other life goals during that time and am so proud of myself. However,I can thank that time for introducing me to things I never thought in a million years I could do. I am a runner,a cyclist, a boot camper, a yogi and have found peace through meditation. I have explored and learned so much about my body and how it works physically,mentally and nutritionally. I have a great basis now to propel my new direction into better overall health & fitness. Life is too short to beat yourself up over calories and whether or not you worked out enough to burn said calories. If being active results in losing weight so be it but the scale won't control me anymore, my happiness will.

    So I just read your comment on "Obligatory Blog" & the line that resonated with you, I thought wow, who wrote that? I wrote that! LOL.

    Archery tag sounds like a blast! So freaking cool! I need to get involved with something fun & active like this. Of course, in my rural area I may have to organize something fun like that...

    Btw what's up with us & bread? Don't be scared of bread. Oprah loves bread. She eats it everyday. I heard her say so. Bread just wants to hang & be friends. Its not looking for commitment. It doesn't want to have little bread babies with you. Idk what any of this means. Maybe I should not drink wine everyday ;p

    What? 1200 cals? I never understood how someone could eat so little (of course I can but.. it just sounds so little food!). My breakfast only are around 5-600 calories! I have a 18--1900 daily calories diet and it works just fine. I'm not hungry and I am losing weight. Eating too little may hurt your weightloss though. You can adjust it manually on SP.

    I'm glad you mustered the courage to sign up to that gym! It's sure cheap so if you don't like it, it's not a lot of money!
    It's the first day of TOM, so feeling a bit blah and you know, just cranky. Got a call from a angry citizen (I work for city hall and do customer service) who was yelling... I almost had to hang up lol
    But it's all good, we're visiting an appartment tonight (my bf and I are moving in together in July) and from the look of the photos, that could be the ONE! And we're going to watch the University improvisation league tonight and than tomorrow, it's snow shoeing and sliding. So, my schedule is a bit packed but nothing planned Sunday!
    Hope you are having a great day!
    What's in for the weekend?
