Looking Ahead to a Healthy Life

I lost 33 pounds in 2011 with SparkPeople, but I struggle the last half of the year, EVERY year. The last five or six months of the year are my busiest months for work, so I quit working out and I always cave with lots of holiday food temptation. Luckily, using what I learned from SP, I have kept my weight gains to a manageable amount. I struggle much more with maintenance than actually losing weight.

I lost 33 pounds in 2011 with SparkPeople, but I struggle the last half of the year, EVERY year. The last five or six months of the year are my busiest months for work, so I quit working out and I always cave with lots of holiday food temptation. Luckily, using what I learned from SP, I have kept my weight gains to a manageable amount. I struggle much more with maintenance than actually losing weight. I am starting 2014 over the "overweight" line for my BMI and working hard to get back down and retrain my brain to maintain better. I am already registered for my second Dirty Girl Mud Run in June, so as soon as the weather gets nicer, I will be strapping my running shoes on again. Can't wait!

My overall 2014 goal is to get my weight down to around 115-120# and do a better job of maintaining that through the fall and holidays. I want to break the cycle of needing to lose these same 10-20 pounds at the start of every year!

My Goals:
This is my fourth year with SparkPeople. I had great success losing 30+ pounds in 2011 and am working to build strength and tone up a bit. The joy for me is challenging myself to be a better person and has little to do with reaching a number on the scale. Any weight I lose along the way is icing on the cake!

My Program:
I currently rotate between Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred, NMTZ and BFBM circuit training almost every day of the week. In addition, I hop on our gazelle when I can. I am always looking for new workouts online to try: yoga, pilates, bookcamps, C25K... there are so many FREE resources out there!

Personal Information:
My husband and I live in Pittsburgh with our two cats.
(Go Steelers!)

I am a graphic designer working from home doing freelance for some great companies - mainly nonprofit organizations and educational institutions.

Other Information:

GLOW & STEADY..........NOT the bronzing stuff!!! The tubes look alike, so be extra careful, especially if buying 3. The bronzing stuff is too orange for me, but looks GREAT after a day or two at the beach.

I've got my spring pedicure ready to go too.....bring on the flip flops!
Enjoy!
