Hi, I'm Christy. I'm 27 and live in VA. I've been on Spark since October 2011, but have not been as committed as I'd like to be. I'm working on making healthy eating and exercise into a habit. I ran my first half marathon last spring and am looking to find a weekly workout routine where I won't get bored. I am highly motivated by beating my own PRs, so my rewards are all based on fitness accomplishments.

Hi, I'm Christy. I'm 27 and live in VA. I've been on Spark since October 2011, but have not been as committed as I'd like to be. I'm working on making healthy eating and exercise into a habit. I ran my first half marathon last spring and am looking to find a weekly workout routine where I won't get bored. I am highly motivated by beating my own PRs, so my rewards are all based on fitness accomplishments.

Goals:
**15 minutes a day exercise streak- May (reward- new sports bra!)
**Do 50 consecutive pushups (Reward- use my massage gift certificate)


Previous goals: (It helps to see these and see how far I've come, especially when I need motivation!)
Without stopping...
**Run 1 mile- Accomplished 6.18.12!
**Run 2 miles (Reward- new running shorts): Accomplished 7.3.12!
**Run 3 miles (Reward- new hiking shorts): Accomplished 9.2.12!
**Run 4 miles (Reward- jeans- $3 at the thrift store!): Accomplished 9.8.12!
**Run 5 miles- (Reward- ??)Accomplished 9.30.12!

Happy Tuesday : )!

Hope your week is off to a good start now that you are back home! Congrats again on such a successful trip ; )
I love that you used the word enlightened to discribe how you felt doing a fasted workout lol! For other reasons I am loving that word right now : D
So happy you gave it a try! Takes so much out of us mentally just to try something like that doesn't it? Thanks for thinking of me : )
I still do all my cardio and most of my workouts fasted! Never thought it would be this way but it is just a habit now! Crazy when it use to be so hard to just get two or three in a week! ( it use to be a weekly goal in 2012) didn't make it most of the time lol. But obviously it has gotten a lot easier to do.
You should check out more of the podcast on that website I shared in the keep calm and love your body blog! Really good info on things like running with or without food before and how to fuel up for and during races : )!

Have a great week!

Only you & one other person said they've heard of a float. How weird! If you decide to do it you'll have to let me know how it goes.

"BEAUTIFUL WOMAN AWARD"

You are the recipient of the Beautiful Woman Award!!

Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the page of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out!

Again, Congratulations Beautiful!

Again, thanks for your support and great advice on my blog! I wasn't able to have a tide-me-over snack, but I did munch on an apple instead of cakes during class, and then came directly home and did both a cardio and strength video. It's actually a nice alternative to watching TV in the evenings!

Thank you so much for your support on here! I felt like I needed to share those photos, because my page really only reflects my past successes, but not where I am right now. I am hopeful that this point system will really help me to keep making some good decisions so I can get my weight back down to a healthy place, and improve my fitness. I also wanted to thank you because a long, long time ago you recommended a website for fitness videos and when sparkpeople wouldn't play any videos for me today, I remembered that suggestion! That kept me on track and I'm so glad. I just wish I could think of a good reward...
