I started my journey in January 2006 before I learned about Sparkpeople. I gave up drinking soda in January, and joined SP in February. Then we joined the YMCA in February also and I reached my goal weight on 22 May 2006. I am mom to 3 and have been pretty active but just couldn't break the plateau of 150 until this year. My goal was 135, and my body decided to be 130~ Finally, I made it.

I have new goals to be a better runner. I want to improve my 5k race time. I am running ...

I have new goals to be a better runner. I want to improve my 5k race time. I am running a 10k in July 2007 for the first time ever. I am using the Jeff Galloway method to run more miles. Next year I will probably run a half marathon. I will not quit running just because I am pregnant, whenever that happens!
And I am on the track to improvement! And becoming a long distance runner!

****I took a hiatus from Spark and rejoined the Babyfit sister site because in September 2007 I became pregnant with baby #4! I kept my exercise routine, did strength training and Zumba through my whole pregnancy! In fact, I worked out 3 days before I had the baby! And I started working out again seriously at the Y about 11 days after she was born. Unfortunately even with working out I gained 50 pounds, which was more than I gained with my other 3 pregnancies. So I am starting over again and I have lost about 20lbs and have about 30 to go to get back to my goal of 130.****

My Goals:
To have more energy, be fit and healthy and strong! I hope to be that "hot mom"...being fit and healthy is important. (Hubby calls me his hot wife...but he always thought I was anyway!) To run a 5k in 28 minutes or less....to become a "long distance runner"

My Program:
Working out 3-4 times a week...cardio and strength training and drinking lots of water. I gave up drinking Coke in January 2006 and lost 10 pounds. We joined the YMCA in February and I started using the elliptical machines, my new best friend for cardio! I am now working towards running a 5k again, using the treadmill. My ultimate goal is to run a Half marathon again..and beat my last time by a longshot!!!

hello there!

welcome to the sparkpeople team "Burn 3500 calories a week". This is a great challenge bu i encourage you to think of it as "bonus". This is because losing weight is 80% diet and 20% exercise. some people find that when they exercise more they also eat better. there are countless beenfits of exercise (much beyond just burning calories) and i iinvite you to discover them as you amp up your exercise.

can't wait to see you on the boards!

Your team leader,
Kelly emoticon
