my favorite sort of day
Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
june 2013: Progress report = progress! i train about 6 times a week, which, paired with conscious eating, has lead to results. i can see my abs now and my weight lifting is improving every week. better yet, i've got loads of energy in general, and my favourite jeans fit like a glove! see my blog from this month for more info about what exactly i've been doing. i'm on my way.
april 2013: i fell off the wagon for a while there around Christmas and i really sabotaged all of my efforts that i'd accomplished before coming to sydney, which means that i am back to 160, which i have been at for so much of my adult life. i'm quite fit at the moment though: i do at least 3 strength training sessions a week with different personal trainers (the perks of having worked at a gym and making friends) and i run at least twice a week. I stand all day for work too. i have decided yet again to not diet, simply to mindfully eat, and that is helping heaps in my mentality towards food. i'm going to attempt to get as fit as possible before i go back home to california, so i'll let y'all know how it goes! Peace!
august 2012: i haven't been this weight since i was a sophomore in high school! something clicked and i do really well when i just remember that food is fuel. i don't track very often because i have found that the more i think about eating, the more i want to eat. so, i really evaluate what i have eaten so far whenever i eat and work in that way. i am 145 and i was 165 a year and a half ago. i hope i can keep this off! if i keep going to the lowest i would ever want to experience, then i am halfway there. i feel so grateful, always, that i have a body that functions well for the most part and that i have been able to make strides toward my goals. thanks all!
march 2012: lately i have really gotten on board with my nutrition program. i eat between 1200 and 1500 calories a day: i eat at least 27 grams of fiber, at least 60 grams of protein, etc. it's working out pretty well but it takes a lot of planning. i feel better!
december 2011: again, i am starting again. i am a locavore and eating foods based on what is great for me health wise; i just need to not eat so much! today is a new day and tomorrow will be too: on and on and on. i will like a healthy lifestyle forever because i want to live!
april 2008: first month of sparkpeople. i want to make my existence the best i can. i know that by getting healthy, more quality moments will be available to me. i like my life and i want to continue it to my utmost.
i have always been sporadic about my healthy habits. i am looking to sparkpeople to help me stay on track and do better than i have in the past. i know i can do this, i just need to stay focused and not get disheartened. i have still been missing the mark. my goals are all about not missing it anymore and getting my butt in gear.
we can do this! good luck everyone!
a. eat a balanced diet
b. exercise regularly and have fun doing it
c. enjoy my body more
d. get back to a healthy range as a result of the above things
1. think before i eat
2. get on sparkpeople and talk about how it's going
3. exercise! if i can, one hour a day
4. can trim but not majorly cut my hair until i feel comfortable with my body again (135 lbs?)
i know that the key to happiness is loving the moment and finding ways to retain that. i am working on achieving this mindset. i accept that there are bad days but i want to keep myself grounded in the potential for the good, and getting healthy is one of those goods for me.
i also love movies! old and new.

Bowing in gratitude for your support and compassion, girl! Argh! "nutrition and consistency"...seem to be my Achilles heel, much of the reason I'm feeling down. But thanks to a New Day, turning the computer on to your encouragement, and my unwillingness to give up...I'm going to start over today, once again.
