My name's Maruca, I was born in 1984, I am Swiss (of Indian descent, adopted) and I am a partly self-employed/employed lanugage teacher. I am from a sporty and healthy family but my busy life and laziness gets the better of me at times...

Wintertime is always hard for me, fitness and mood wise. 2010 was the best year of my life so far as I can finally live of my job, I am getting a degree (with the Open University) and I found love. I also got into shape in spring, but I abandonned my routine way too fast.

Joining Sparkpeople I'd like to get all the help I can get to make 2011 the year I got fit.

When I exercised for a month straight last year I got highly addicted to it and I felt better than ever but life got busy (and wonderful). Now I want to learn to integrate fitness into my life properly...

A buddy with a similar goal (not really a weightloss but just making every-day life more active) would be welcome.

    Hi Maruca -- thanks for your great comment! I shared that with our entire team to motivate us.

    Please please please keep this up -- you are still near the beginning of this journey and there are so many great things ahead for you. Even when you have setbacks like we all do, just hop back on and get moving again. It's all part of the process.

    Thanks for being part of the SP family!

    Now don't be silly! I've been gone too, and I completely understand that sometimes life happens and the internet is left to its own devices. Don't worry about it!

    I am glad to hear that you've been good with your calories. Sometimes, workouts will just disappear from your schedule. Just make sure to get them back in there! I have been the opposite; bad with food, but good with the exercise. Now we are back to normal, which means normal food intake and such again. Hooray! I have missed homemade, healthy meals but when the stove isn't working and the casseroles are packed goodness only knows in which box, it gets tricky.

    Glad to have you back!
