"I make sure I eat well without depriving myself of the things that I love. Everything in moderation." --Kate Hudson

"All revolutions are impossible until they happen--then they become inevitable."

I have been on this extraordinary journey for three years now, and in that time have had many ups and downs, many successes and failures, and learned many lessons that I will never forget. I lost 91 pounds, which at the time felt like nothing, and then depression and addictive desire set in, which I did not know how to accept and manage at the time, and this led to a slow spiral that unfolded into an entire year of regaining 30 pounds. I found myself battling binge eating constantly and the harder I tried to conquer it, the worse it became! This led me searching for alternative answers than what I was getting in therapy, from nutritionists, and from all of the traditional advice about how to deal with binging and the addictive desire to overeat. I discovered that if I was going to change my behaviour, I had to change my thinking because thought is what powers behaviour. Now it's my choice whether I go on binging or eat a bit less.

Fitness Minutes: 57,479

My Goals:
To have fun! Staying motivated and doing what I can when I can. Practicing mindfulness and good nutritional habits while staying active. Drinking more water, try to get more than 4 cups a day! NO negative self talk! Lose 1/2 to 1 pound a week and exercise 5 days a week. Eat more fruits and vegetables, at least 3 servings/day.

Weekly Activity & Nutrition Goals:

Activity Minutes: 150
Calories Burned Through Exercise: 1500
Calories Consumed Weekly Limit: 12,600
Miles Walked: 21
Weight Goal: 0.5-1 lb a week


My Program:
I use my Fitbit and Sparkcoach together to help me achieve the best results. I track my food, fitness, and sleep, and I also have a MyHydrate bottle that tracks my water. My program is pretty simple, I basically count calories and eat in moderation, endeavour to be more active, stay hydrated, make healthy choices, and stay positive.



Personal Information:
I'm from Wisconsin. I'm a Buddhist. I have a wonderful son and fluffy Pomeranian and in my spare time I enjoy reading, writing, cooking, gardening, makeup, and every so often a British comedy.


Other Information:
I'm challenging myself to commit to my Fitbit & Spark for the next year so feel free to follow along with me as I will be blogging about it every day! I've set some activity & nutrition goals along with working on practical life skills and it's time to get to my goal range of 144-154!
