Hello my lovely Sparkies! My name is Nicole and I'm 28.

I joined SparkPeople because I want to turn my life around. I am now on my way to becoming a new, healthier me. It may have taken a couple tries, but I finally am BEYOND READY. All I can do is take it a day at a time and look forward to success :) I know I'll have roadblocks, but I just have to tell myself that nothing will stop me.

I don't want to be skinny (well.. it would be nice! lol), I just want to be happy. :)

Good luck to everyone in reaching their goals!

Fitness Minutes: 53,496

My Goals:
Learn the "Thriller" dance and manage to pull it off without all of the "jiggle".

Buy a super awesome pair of skinny jeans and feel comfortable in them.

Climb steps without feeling like death when I get to the top.

Eat more fruit.

Stop being in such a rush and eat some darn BREAKFAST in the morning!

BIKE, HIKE and just BE OUTDOORS! I definitely have to step it up when it comes to being active outdoors.

Ultimate Goal/Reward: No idea. Crazy right?! Lol. I just want to live!

My Program:
Nothing too fancy!

Right now, my goal is to log at least an hour of fitness, 4 days a week. My current routine includes 15-20 minutes of warmup cardio, followed by a lifting routine (Ice Cream Fitness), finished with another 15-20 minutes of cardio. I do my lifting routine Mon, Wed, Friday and C25K + accessory work Tues, Thurs, Friday.

When I stick to this, and eat sensibly, it works! Surprise right? Haha.

I hope to add more outside activities eventually, but for now it's all about routine routine routine. I've got to STICK WITH IT!

Personal Information:
I live in Northeast PA and work full time for a Law Enforcement Agency.

I am a fun-loving, outgoing girl who just wants to get healthy! I want to be that fit healthy girl I feel like I can be!

Other Information:
I'm always looking forward to meeting new people on Spark - So if you're browsing through, go ahead and add me!

    Anatomy of a True Friend

    Will always see you for the way you really are, your true self.

    Will always have them open to listen.

    To always tell you the truth and give their opinions, tell you when you mess up or do something good.

    Will offer when you need one to cry on and will be your strength when you find it hard to carry yourself. Will always let you lean on them.

    To love you for who you are and not judge. Will always have a place there for you.

    To hold yours when you need a little guidance, to lend when you need help, and to help you up when you may fall.

    Will always make you feel comfortable in them and to offer hugs when you need one. Will try to warm when you are cold.

    To walk with you throughout your life and be the best friend they can be.
