Hi there! I'm Catrina, 40 years old and single mom of two crazy but loveable teens.

I've been overweight my entire life. Okay, for as long as I can remember. When I was a toddler I was a normal weight but that didn't last past the age of 5. I grew up in a very emotionally distraught household and was always my mom's eating partner.

I've been put on diets since I was 7. I quit dieting once I moved out of my mom's house and had a brief period where I actually looked as ...
Hi there! I'm Catrina, 40 years old and single mom of two crazy but loveable teens.

I've been overweight my entire life. Okay, for as long as I can remember. When I was a toddler I was a normal weight but that didn't last past the age of 5. I grew up in a very emotionally distraught household and was always my mom's eating partner.

I've been put on diets since I was 7. I quit dieting once I moved out of my mom's house and had a brief period where I actually looked as good as I felt, or maybe it was that I felt as good as I looked.

I've reached a point in my life where I'm ready to let all the negativity from past go. I'm moving on and upward(or downward in this case!).

I'm a DONE Girl!!!

*I'm done feeling like less of a person because there is more of me.
*I'm done hiding behind my fat.
*I'm done making excuses for why I can't.
*I'm done letting my past dictate my future.
*I'm done listening to the voices of my past tell me I'm not ever going to accomplish anything.
*I'm done comparing myself to others and not doing my best because it may not be as good as someone else.
*I'm done thinking I'm not worth it.
*I'm done not feeling like myself.
*I'm DONE not giving my all.
*I'm DONE not letting myself SHINE!!!

SparkPoints: 27,128

Fitness Minutes: 22,589

My Goals:
My long term goal is to lose 200 pounds.

My short term goals are pretty basic right now:

1) Drink 8 glasses of water a day

2) Increase the amount of fruits and vegetables I eat on a daily basis

3) exercise daily , continue to increase amount of time

4) Log in daily and track food, water and exercise.


My Program:
For exercise, I am working on increasing the amount of time I do cardio. I was using the WATP video's but for some reason those just aren't doing it for me right now. I am making sure that I get in at least 10 minutes of exercise 5x a week and I'm still going strong with my strength training.

For my eating I am working on changing my eating habits. Learning more about why I turn to food, catching myself before I do and then doing something to distract myself and increasing the variety of fruits and vegetables I eat.

Personal Information:
I love to read and knit.

There are days when I'd love to sell my kids to gypsies even though I love them dearly.

I have the world's craziest cat who thinks my cheeks are a source of nutrition.

I'm stuck somewhere between a nerd and a geek.

I have an inner diva who doesn't get to come out and play quite as often as she should.



Other Information:
When you stand still, you reject the struggle, and you refuse to grow. Ultimately you reject fulfillment, happiness, the dance for joy and everything else that is eternally good. ~Mathew Kelly
