Change moves in misterious ways

It has been a hectic year. It brought a lot of new things in my life and took many things away from me. Some of the losses were long awaited, others I still mourne. All of them had a role to play in an inner change that I have come to cherish.

To put a long story short within this year I got a new job and then went back to my old job as a freelance translator, so I am now officially a moolighter. I have less free time but enjoy the free time I have a lot more than before.

To put a long story short within this year I got a new job and then went back to my old job as a freelance translator, so I am now officially a moolighter. I have less free time but enjoy the free time I have a lot more than before.

In my personal life I had come very close to despair. The despair that I will never find someone and start a family. Then against all hope and logic I found love in the most ulikely guy. It was a relationship full of promise that fell apart in a very painful way. It brought down my walls, it tore me to pieces, made me face truths about myself that I had been denying forever. It burned me to the ground and against all odds left me full of hope, stronger that before and with an unexpected gift of understanding, motivation and love that I had never though I would feel.

I have been on SparkPeople for 7 years with varying success until I hit an all time high in my weight this spring. 110 kilos which is more that 240 lb. This time around I am putting an end to the diet rollercoaster because I finally see both a reason and a way to do it.

Fitness Minutes: 24,229

My Goals:
I am aiming to be 92 kg 207 lb by New Year and 80 kg or 176 lb by my next birthday on 28 August 2014. After that I will try for 70-75 kg or 155-165 lb and set my goals according to the situation.

I am trying to do this in a healthy, reasonable and sustainable way.

My Program:
I watch my calories keep in check where they come from. My goal is to have 30% of calories comming from fat, 25-30% comming from protein and some 40-45 comming from carbs. I'm currently strugling with low fat intake but hope to tweak things soon.

I have started strength training with some cardio and for the first time in my life am following instructor directions. Can't wait to see how different that will be from having no clue what I'm doing in the gym.

Personal Information:
I'm Bulgarian Living in Sofia Bulgaria. My job keeps me glued infront of a computer screen during the day and my second job as a freelance translator does the same some 4 nights a week. I try to make the rest of the time count.

Other Information:
I adore cooking and here is another profile to prove it: http://www.recipezaar.com/member/70536

And this is my blog in Bulgarian http://anelianadieta.blogspot.com/
