Striving for the best version of Me

July-
All the changes in my life are really starting to pay off. Last summer I weighed in at 165- my highest ever weight. This summer I hopped on the scale to see 140!
I attribute a lot of this to going to the gym and making those smart and healthy decisions, but the major factor was breaking free from a lot of stress I was carrying around.
I am spending a lot of time outside, walking the dogs, tanning, and just feeling inspired by my surroundings.
I don't count ...

I don't count calories anymore, but I've settled into a comfortable routine of measuring out portions (:
I try to keep at least one kind of fruit in the house and incorporate it into my first meal of the day, everyday. Starting the day out right really makes a difference!

My goals for this month are focused primarily on other aspects of my life, but I'd still like to share them with you (:
* Find my own apartment
* Find a second job to finish out summer
* Get my own vehicle
* Stay positive, and wish the past farewell with a smile (:
* Keep writing and staying inspired
* Keep making healthy food decisions
* Get outside as much as possible!

P.S. I'm always looking for positive, motivating spark members to be friends with! Most of my real world friends and family do not know about my goals. I love this site because there are so many encouraging people on it! :)

The Zumba Exhilarate DVDs are awesome. The Zumba game for Wii Fit is also good!

Thanks for commenting on my blog! Haha the nurses told me if I don't pig out and keep exercising I should be fine while on the pill. I think I was just freaking out about everything that night.

The baked apple sounds amazing and the banana Chocolate chip muffins would be awesome for breakfast! I'm trying to do carbs in the morning rather than night time since I don't do much after a work out at night... Darn lifestyle changes but it's been a 6 days for no soda and I'm feeling great! More energy but I've also been working out! My buddy bailed on me too so I'll stick to my iPod and just push through it. Thanks for the recipe idea I never gave it a thought!

Hey thanks for the comment! I'll be one to help if you want it! My biggest downfall is sweets... it's like I have ZERO will power and I need to since I wont reach my goals if I don't... Not sure how to gain it without support. And weekends are a killer too... I'm a snacker and during the week I'm fine since I sit on my butt in front of sparkpeople all day long... So glad were friends and are able to vent/motivate back and forth. I'm going to workout yet again tonight and I'm going to drag a friend with me so i can push myself a little further. Thanks again!
