Enjoy the Ride

Hi, my name is Bonnie. This is my third time to join Spark People but I hadn't been on in a few years before joining this time. A little about me: I am 26 years old and just finished my last semester of online classes for the foreseeable future but will be looking into continuing my education later on so I can get a degree/certificate. I babysit my nephews, who just turned 3 and 2 years old last summer, for 4 days a week for a total of 45 hours while my brother works.

Hi, my name is Bonnie. This is my third time to join Spark People but I hadn't been on in a few years before joining this time. A little about me: I am 26 years old and just finished my last semester of online classes for the foreseeable future but will be looking into continuing my education later on so I can get a degree/certificate. I babysit my nephews, who just turned 3 and 2 years old last summer, for 4 days a week for a total of 45 hours while my brother works.

My exercise plan: I do Leslie Sansone's Walk Away the Pounds DVDs, walking videos from on demand, and either Biggest Loser Cardio Max DVD or kickboxing workouts. Now that the temperatures are rising a bit for spring, I am getting back out for walks and am enjoying every moment of it. Also, I can be active outdoors longer now because I'm stronger and have more energy than I did even last fall. So I'm reveling in that feeling!

My brother, nephews, and I live with my mom and stepdad in a small two bedroom house and it is very cramped. It can also be very stressful a lot of the time as I sleep in the living room. My sleep is interrupted pretty often and there is no such thing as privacy, but I try to keep my head up as much as I can.

Some of my 2014 achievements:

808 miles walked, indoors and outdoors
over 16,000 fitness minutes (in seven months)
60 pounds lost!
10 BMI points dropped
~~~~~~~~
Some of my goals:


WEIGHT:
Starting: 309.4

1st goal- 10.4 pounds, 299 by July 2, 2014 (reached June 25)

2nd goal- 30 pounds: 10% of remaining weight, 269 by October 15, 2014 (reached September 24)

3rd goal- 27 pounds: 10% of remaining weight, 242 by January 7, 2015 (reached January 28)

4th goal- 24 pounds: 10% of remaining weight, 218 by April 29, 2015

5th goal- 22 pounds: 10% of remaining weight, 196 by July 1, 2015
WILL BE UNDER 200 for the first time in at least 10 years!

Okay I'm so glad that you confirmed that it may have been the wind causing the back problems. I thought maybe I was crazy! lol
