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!
