It Ain't a "DIET" it's a LIFESTYLE!

I'm a professional vocalist and I was horrified when I saw a video clip of myself. I Looked 8 months pregnant- no KIDDING! It was the slap I needed to wake me up that not only have I let myself go- but I have been missing out on many things I used to really enjoy. So...I know it's gonna be a long up hill battle but I will go from 210 to 130! Excited to be looking at a new lifestyle...also excited to work my way BACK through my clothing from size 18 to size 6(REALLY looking forward to the money I can make selling the larger sizes on eBAY too! LOL)

SparkPoints: 28,632

Fitness Minutes: 26,722

My Goals:
Overall I want to lose 90 pounds! BUT- I also want to be able to do my favorite hikes(one of which is a mile straight down then back up again at better than 45 degrees- so you're literally climbing and rapelling at points. Hmmm...I also want to be able to incorporate choreography into my singing without having to gasp for breath...Oh an I am challenging my 73 year old dad to lose weight so I need to set a good example for him!

My Program:
10,000 steps per day
a minimum of 360 minutes of cardio per week
avg of 1200-1550 calories consumed per day:
50% from complex carb
25% from "healthy" fat and lean protein
CUTTING OUT PROCESSED FOOD AND CHEMICALS! ( with a few "treats" as an exception)

Personal Information:
I am from the south originally but 11 years ago I got married -now I live and work in San Jose. I'm 48 and am a professional vocalist! My name is Paula and my website is www.paulaharrismusic.com PLEASE feel free to stop by and say HI- you can also add your email t my mailing list if you wanna be updated whenever I am doing a show near you!

Other Information:
I have always been a slender person until i got married. My lifestyle changed significantly at that point. I was travelling because my then fiancee lived on the west coast and I on east so the time I spent exercising dwindled to nothing. I also stopped singing 3-6 mights a week(which burns off anywhere from 600-1000 calories a night) to spend time with him. On top of that my diet changed- I lived on salad and fish...My hubby, like most men is meat and potatos...so. One day i woke up and was literally double the woman I used to be. My hubby understands that I am getting fit and healthy again and he either eats what i cook now- or he fixes his own. Ya gotta do whatcha gotta do ya know?

Hi. It looks as though I never said thanks for the SparkGoodie you gave me welcoming my baby boy. So thank you very much.

Hi. Yes, I'm sill interested. Been very lonely in this group. I'm in a busy spot at work for a few days. Not getting much time to surf. I love the pictures on your page. Lovely!

I'm glad you are back!

You and I started with Spark in 2009. I am impressed with your progress and your cheerful outlook on your life. You have been a motivator for me to get back onto the SparkWagon. I have followed some of your Blogs for a while now but did not realize you were into music. I went to your Webpage and I was blown away with your music. I even sent your Website to a friend of mine with Rodeo Drive. I really enjoy the Blues.
Good luck with your nutrition plans and your music career.

Hey. It's great to see you back. I stop by periodically to see if you've posted anything new, and I obviously missed your status the other day, but I did see that you are down 1 pound.
