Ready to Rock!

I FINALLY finished my Bachelor's Degree in December 2013. Yay! Now I have NO EXCUSES to get healthy and drop some weight.

I originally joined sparkpeople in June 2010, but have not kept up with it from lack of motivation. I have ...

I originally joined sparkpeople in June 2010, but have not kept up with it from lack of motivation. I have had some big life changes in this past year and figured that the new year is the perfect opportunity to change what I've wanted to change for a while- my weight and my overall health!

Fitness Minutes: 1,734

My Goals:
*big goal is 75 lbs... but I like to take baby steps. I have a reward system I am going to try below. Ultimately I am aiming for 50 lbs by Christmas, 2014.

*to make healthier choices in my eating habits and NOT stress eat

*to not rely on fast food just because of my schedule... I want to pack healthy lunches and snacks so I don't need to stop at fast food joints

*to feel comfortable in my own skin!

My Program:
I plan on getting another gym membership in the next week, and then working out 3-5 times a week.

I've been tracking my foods on the nutritiontracker, and logging my exercise as well.

I will be eating more fiber rich fruits, veggies, and whole grains.

Personal Information:
My cat, Darla, is amazing- she never judges me. :) My boyfriend, Landy, is pretty darn great, too.

I am 28, and am in retail jewelry sales. I love to read, cook, and be outside.

I'm a HUGE science nerd- I love all things that are science related- bacteria, viruses, parasites, oh my! :D

I like funny movies, good books, playing video games, and being outdoors when it's nice out.

Other Information:
my goal/reward system:

-5lbs: get manicure/pedicure

-10lbs: 2 new pairs of dress pants

-15lbs: trip to Omaha zoo

-20lbs: trip to Chicago Museum of Science and Industry

-30lbs: trip to Mall of America

-40lbs: trip to Las Vegas

Just cruising through leaving everyone with some motivational thoughts for today:

“To move head you need to believe in yourself . . . have conviction in your beliefs & the confidence to execute those beliefs.” ~ Adlin Sinclair

“Patience, persistence & perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success.” ~ Napoleon Hill

“Keep away from those who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you believe that you too can become great.” ~ Mark Twain

Beauty Lies in the Beholder's Eyes

So many beauties in this appealing world,
The true beauty lies in the beholder's eyes.
There is beauty in the child's innocence and in mother's love,
There is beauty in a friend's affection and in a tender heart.
There is beauty in a pretty smile and caring eyes,
There is beauty in the morning sun and a rainy day.
There is beauty in the flaky slow and a pleasant spring,
There is beauty in the milky moon and the graceful rivers.
There is beauty in a hard earned victory and a hopeful soul,
There is beauty in me and beauty in you.
So many beauties in this spectacular world and its dazzling life,
And the true beauty lies in the beholder's eyes.

Kavitha Krishnamurthy
