After seeing a picture of myself from a Christmas party in 2012, I panicked. I couldn't get over how bloated my face looked and the double chin - UGH. I joined SparkPeople the very day I saw that picture (after crying) because I realized you can either be upset about it or DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

Fitness Minutes: 20,346

My Goals:
Rewards:

[X] 10 lbs lost: Buy a new pair of shoes (found some running shoes I like)!

[x] 20 lbs lost: Have a pedicure (because Iím thinking my feet will need it) and a manicure.

[x] 30 lbs lost: New haircut (thinking long bob).

[ ] 100 lbs lost: Professional picture session with my favorite photographer!

My Program:
I have a base calorie goal of 1,328 - 1,678 per day, but that could change depending on how much I work out. And I plan to work out 180 minutes per week.

Monday: Cardio (30 min), Yoga (30 min)
Tuesday: Strength - legs (15-30 min)
Wednesday: Cardio (30 min), Strength - core (15-30 min)
Thursday: Strength - arms (15-30 min)
Saturday: Cardio/Strength - hiking, swimming, etc (30 min - 2 hours).

Personal Information:
My name is Cody, and I'm 26 years old. I'm from Alabama, and I work a job where I don't really move around very much (which makes the weight loss journey a little harder). I make up for it by working my butt off (I mean this literally) five days a week.

[ ] 2 weeks: Have an at-home spa day.

[ ] 4 months: Give myself a pedicure.

[ ] 5 months: Have a date night where I get all dressed up and we go somewhere special.
