It sounds such a clichee but it is so true...I am a Spark member for some years now and each time I start, get on track, and then something happens and I get offline for months...and each time I start I am a little heavier than the last time. I am sad because I have this goal of feeling better, being slimmer and heathier for so many years and I just seem not to get on action and keep it going until I reach my goal.
So here I am again...another year gone by, another resolution ...the same one, actually. Will this time be different?

My Goals:
I want to be a healtier me, a more sportive one and much more energetic. As in the past years I gained and lost a lot of weight (approx. 13 kg fluctuation) my body resents the stress and my skin needs an equilibrated diet. My goal is to take care of my body, so I can enjoy a better life.
After days in the diet, my goals are also measurable:
*62 kg by the end of the year (and maintenance)
*5k run without jogging

My Program:

Personal Information:
I am 28 years old, live in Vienna together with my husband and try to learn German, :)
I like painting, dancing, singing, making photos - but unfortunately I am not good in any of them so I just consider them a hobby. Recently I started to plant flowers and tomatoes - keep your fingers crossed! :D


Update 29.12.2014: I am 32 years old, I have a 2 year old son and I want to do so many things in life I should start list them and tick them.

    Thank you for visiting my blog. I am sooooo glad you are feeling better today and are closer to you goal. Make a good weekend and reward yourself Monday morning. I've had a good week so I'm rewarding myself this evening by going to our local farmer's market. I plan to get fruit and veggies for the weekend to help me stay on my program. Let me know how it goes for you Monday. I know you will send me a great report. emoticon

    You are very welcome. I completely understand how you feel. I was at a plateau for 3.5 months earlier this year. I was following the program without cheating so it was very discouraging. Fortunately my sister, trainer, and SparkFriends helped me through it. Now I am 20 pounds lighter and experiencing much less pain.

    Remember even if the scales are not moving, improvement is happening on a cellular level. You immune system is getting stronger. You may be lossing fat but building muscle which doesn't show up on the scale. Try taking your measurements. Maybe you are sculting your body. Who cares what you weigh if you are the size you want to be.

    Try some interval training. That can really bust a plateau. I wasn't able to use it because of my arthritis, but is worked wonders for me in the past. Hang in there. emoticon emoticon

    Thanks so much for the blog comment! You are right a little change helps so much! I've decided to work this week and reflect on what is working and what is not working! Thanks for the advice and support!
