Time for a Healthy Change!

Hi everyone! Welcome to my SparkPage!

My name is Melissa. I am a lawyer with a busy life. I struggle with motivation to eat right and work out. I have an amazing fiance and want to work this body into better shape for the big wedding day!


Up until the last year or so I was blessed with a body that let me eat anything - but now I've realized I can't do that any longer! The pounds have appeared and it is time for a lifestyle change.

Hi Melissa, This is Sandie responding to your blog,Congrats on Law school!! It is hard to fit everything into a day,but it pays to get into some good time management habits.Especially since a career in LAw requires a lot of hours working! Just like in saving you want to pay yourself first,remember to also take care of yourself first. figure out how to be consistent in exercise,you will have a lot more energy,and feel better. I can relate to what you said about recommitment! It is easy at first but to maintain, hard!! life gets in the way.I will encourage you if you will encourage me! I am commiting to exercise daily and I am starting with body bootcamp,just finished day 3. We have similar goals so let's encourage each other to be fit by the fourth!! We can do it!!

Law school and healthy living his hard...but so worth it when you make the time. My best semester was my first one, when I was really trying to have a very strict routine that incorporated healthy eating, exercise, and studying. I lost 20 pounds and got my best grades (I'm in my last semester now)! Then I started getting friends, a boyfriend and social life at law school and it all went downhill again (grades and weight gain!) I'm back on track and I feel so much better when it comes time to do work, knowing that I have had a healthy day! You can do it!
