New Year's morning at my friend's house, about 7.30am... I hadn't slept.





This is the closest I could find to a full body shot!





I've tried before to photograph myself juggling, and it's never worked. So, a different approach ;-)



I have 5 pics in my gallery

Can't start a fire without a spark

I'm a university student from New Zealand and the reason I am doing this is probably the same as most of you who will read this; I want to give myself the opportunity to experience my life to it's fullest extent. I have realized that I am young and the thing I will regret the most when I am older is wasting these years by putting off the chance to live a healthy lifestyle.

I'm keen to meet some dedicated buddies who want to lose roughly the same amount as I do and want to keep in ...
I'm a university student from New Zealand and the reason I am doing this is probably the same as most of you who will read this; I want to give myself the opportunity to experience my life to it's fullest extent. I have realized that I am young and the thing I will regret the most when I am older is wasting these years by putting off the chance to live a healthy lifestyle.

I'm keen to meet some dedicated buddies who want to lose roughly the same amount as I do and want to keep in touch and share motivation.

To anyone who has trouble keeping themselves motivated, especially when hard work isn't yielding many results, I URGE you to have a look at this website. It's a virtual ride/run/walk across America. Each time you exercise, you log your km/miles and it shows you where you are on the map. You get a little map with your progress line on it, a picture of what you would see at that point running/biking down the road, it's really fun! And it is often the sole reason I get on my bike some days. I just really want to get to the next state! It's a really solid progress marker, when you think about it; you CAN'T run/bike across the whole of the United States and not see any results!! :-)
The website is http://exercise.lbl.gov

My Goals:
I want to spend 2010 reaching my goal weight, and the rest of my life enjoying it.

And a mini-goal I have at the moment is; become more active in the Sparkpeople community. If people more involved really do lose more weight, I want in on that!

I've seen some people listing their goals along with the rewards they'll give themselves once they reach them... what a great idea!! Here are mine (these have changed slightly since I first wrote them):

-----
Now: 96kg/211lbs

At 93kg/205lbs: REACHED! Bought 'The Spark'. January 9th 2011.

At 90kg/198lbs: REACHED! January 30th 2011. But can't afford the reward. I guess I owe me a new comfy bike seat. Doesn't matter, the real reward is knowing I'm gonna win!

At 87kg/191lbs: REACHED! January 24th 2013. Take all my new favorite recipes from Pinterest and have them printed into my own healthy cookbook! Working on the design currently ;-)

At 85kg/187lbs: Cool new case/skin for my iPhone.

My Program:
My program involves staying within my nutrition goals, and playing Wii Fit every day, which will hopefully equal making a habit out of healthy choices and learning to love exercise!

Pisces is the most difficult sign since she is all things to all people.
In Pisces, the Sun is sensitive and idealistic. You are "tuned in" to your environment, and aware of everything happening in your world, and to everyone around you. Pisces is the dream sign of the zodiac. You may be one of the true dreamers of the world, often getting caught up in impractical plans and ideas. You absorb the ideas and the mental outlook of those around you, for better or for worse. The decisions that you make may be workable, if sometimes emotional and erratic. Often these decisions are made on hunches and feelings with little or no foundation in fact. Creative, spiritual and often a bit mystical, you can be impractical and illogical.

You're a moody and introspective person, and it's hard for others to understand you. It may be hard for you to understand yourself sometimes. Your temperament varies from being optimistic to being acutely pessimistic.
Although you may be very shy and unassuming, you care deeply about your stature and succeeding in your endeavors. You may feel vulnerable and anxious when you are unsure of your status and circumstances. You have a deeply hidden inner pride and when this is attacked in any way, you react emotionally.
Compassionate, tolerant, kind, and loving, you are easily influenced by others because you don't want to hurt anyone. Always charming and likable, you are good to those in distress. You are as fond of animals as you are people. You are sympathetic to the world's unfortunate, including every stray animal and helpless soul you meet. You are more concerned with others' well-being than your own, and you want to save people from themselves. You are easily taken in by a hard-luck story and often leave yourself open to be used. You are always there with a shoulder to cry on for your friends in need. Frequently people take advantage of this compassionate nature.

If you are a typical Pisces, you're likely to suffer from an inferiority complex. You probably lack an adequate sense of self-confidence, as you are so very sensitive, shy and introspective. You never feel that you do enough, so you often overwork, putting stress on your physical body. In your quiet way, you accomplish much. Having a natural tendency to become a workaholic, you must have a generous amount of escape time, preferably with total solitude.
Pisces, more than any other sign, draws strength or weakness from the rest of the horoscope. The nature of Pisces is very adaptable and pliable. You may have to fight for a sense of stability and to resist the impulses of the moment. emoticon
