Ready to Rock!

Hello there! I''m 29 and trying to lose some extra weight that has been accumulating now for a couple of years... I live in Iowa, have one cat, an amazingly patient man in my life, and work in a Nutritional testing lab. Interesting, yes? :) 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 had some big life ...

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 had some big life changes in this past year and figured that this year, since I turn the big 3-0, is the perfect opportunity to change what I''ve wanted to change for a while- my weight and my overall health!

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

-50lbs: book a tropical Puerto Rican vacation with my BF!

“Not to give up under any circumstances should be the motto of our life: we shall try again and again, and we are bound to succeed. There will be obstacles, but we have to defy them. So do not give up, do not give up!
Continue, continue! The goal is ahead of you. If you do not give up, you are bound to reach your destined goal.”
-Sri Chinmoy

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
