I joined Spark because I want to look and feel better. I'm determined to change my bad eating and health habits.
I'm newly single and I live in a fairly small town in Northern Manitoba. I work in the mining industry as an engineer in training. My favorite passtimes are fiber related - I knit and spin my own yarn. I like to belly dance and I'm trying to get into pilates to improve my muscle tone. I've also taken up running.

Goal 1: 10 lbs lost - met 07/17/2010
Reward - 8oz of merino cashmere fiber in colour 'Eggplant'

Goal 2: 20 lbs lost - met 09/05/2010
Reward - iPod touch

No longer obese and ran 5km (running only, no walking!) for the first time
Reward - 3.5oz of sparkly fingering weight yarn
This reward didn't actually turn out so I'm going to have to think of something.

Goal 3: 30 lbs lost - goal met 10/26/2010
Reward - Miche bag

Goal 4: 40 lbs lost - goal met 12/07/2010
Reward - maybe the large pile of clothes I bought myself? Or a massage?

Reward - sexy underwear

Ran my first 5K race - goal met 01/01/2011
Reward - lululemon sweat shirt

Goal 5: 50 lbs lost - goal met 01/25/2011
Reward - lululemon sweat shirt and yoga pants (in a size down)

Healthy BMI - goal met 02/08/2011

Goal 6: 60 lbs lost

My Goals:
I want to feel better about myself. I have 60 lbs to lose which seems like a lot right now but I'm trying to break it down into 10lb increments.
I've recently decided that I want to run a 5K (it might turn into a 10K) in the summer of 2011.

My Program:
Right now I'm just aiming to eat better and move more.
I've taken up running, I'm doing the 30DS and just trying to fuel my body with the best food I can find.

Personal Information:
Amanda from Northern Manitoba.

Other Information:
I love to read and I also knit and spin.

    How did your 5k go!? I would love to get to the point where running is an option for me. Maybe this Spring!

    Any way, congrats on getting into the running groove and running your first race! emoticon

    So another week has come and gone! There have been a few Christmas parties and still more to come! I have been to all the school concerts this week. I am not quite done my shopping, I think I have one more to go! I haven't wrapped a thing. I've been working late. Well I'm sure by now you get the message, I am really not making up excuses for not getting together with you before you left. I am terribly sorry emoticon
    Let me know as soon as you get back. There is always Ukrainian Christmas. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and time shared with your family. Do not get hurt skiing, but do look hot (you never know)!

    Have a Merry Christmas and I will see you when you get back! emoticon
