Destiny Is Deafening

I'm a work in progress, a girl in the world trying to make sense of things, and someone who is learning a little more about herself each day. I just turned thirty-eight and decided that I wanted to be fit & healthy by forty!

This time I've got my sister joining me on the journey, so hopefully we will be able to get each other through the hard days and the moments of "but I don't wanna cook - let's get a pizza!"

December 2013: 3 months in and I'm still learning so much. Forty pounds down on my journey to fit by forty with a little more than 18 months to go. I can do this!

Grateful every day for all the people I've interacted with through SparkPeople and the encouragement and inspiration I receive on a daily basis.


January 2014: New year! Goal is to continue on this journey throughout 2014 and never forget how much Spark People helps me - on good and bad days! My goal for this year is to lose 90lbs, which averages out to about 7.5lbs a month.

February 2014: New month! January spent going around in circles between life/sickness/emotions...back on track now and it's time to just focus on today.

March 2014: Spring is around the corner. I keep reminding myself of that. Motivation has been hard to come by and I've been losing/gaining the same ten pounds recently. So back to the basics and going slow. I need to remember that I can do it. I want this.

I've got 540 days until my fortieth birthday and my goal is to be fit and healthy by that day!

**

Current NSV's (to remind myself on harder days)

-All my blood work has improved!
-I can fit into booths in restaurants!
-I keep shaving time off my mile!
-My clothes are big on me and I got to buy some new ones!
-I can hold plank position!
-People have said how proud they are of me of my hard work.
-I can climb stairs without getting winded and do it properly!

My Goals:
I want to lose weight and get healthy, learning not to give up when I hit a stumbling block.

I want to be able to fly on planes and ride roller-coasters without fear of not fitting.

I want to be able to sit in a chair and not worry I might break it.

I want to be able to wear a cute dress and heels.

I want to go out in public without the constant belief that everyone is staring.

My Program:
Working hard as a Dazzling Diamond!


Getting in at least 180 minutes of exercise a week as a DONE Girl!

Tracking all food and exercise - planning ahead as much as possible.

Bootcamp, Zumba, walking, yoga...assortment of dvds that I own. Plan to restart Jillian Michaels Body Revolution once my knee has completely healed (so many plyometric moves with her stuff)

Continue to deal with the emotional as well as the physical - like trying to understand the whys of things behind my actions.

Forgive myself for mistakes. Slip ups will happen - it does NOT have to define me or end this journey.

Think positive about myself and repeat my mantra "I am strong and I am capable."

Learn to push myself just a little further, but to also learn to listen to my body.

Personal Information:
I'm Mare from New Jersey - South Jersey, there's more Philly than New York in me. I work in non-profit, want to write a best-selling novel, and am learning that I can make my life whatever I want.

I'm a nerd who loves comic books (captain america!), reading, watching movies & good television and hanging out with friends. Love the Walking Dead and all things pop culture!

Can be reached at tommygirl828 (at) gmail (dot) com.

Also on facebook, tumblr, pinterest, twitter, & livejournal for those that play on social media!

Welcome new friends and support!

I love Rockin Body. It is really fun and you are really dancing..After doing it I can dance better than before and it also gives a great workout...calories burned close to Zumba numbers. Shaun T is great too...hes an encouraging trainer and he makes it fun. Give it a try. The Mark Move and Groove workout is the first one you should try and it's only 15 minutes. It will give you a good taste to see if you like it. :)

Just stopping by to wish my fellow Dazzling Diamond good luck in the Fall Fitness Frenzy Challenge. Shine bright and dazzle!

"Everyone wants to be a diamond, but very few are willing to get cut."

What are you willing to do to reach your goals?

emoticon I think that we are like stars. Something happens to burst us open; but when we burst open and think we are dying; were actually turning into a supernova. And then when we look at ourselves again, we see that were suddenly more beautiful than we ever were before!
