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.

Right now, I'm starting a 15 minutes of daily exercise streak! My previous 10 minutes of daily exercise streak died after 225 days. I'm hoping to make it until the end of May and then, who knows!


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!
**Run 6 miles (Reward- Sign up for my 1st 1/2 Marathon- April 14, 2013!)- Accomplished 10.11.12!

1) I followed the pita bread recipe from smitten kitchen: http://smittenkitchen.com/blog/2009/03/pit
a-bread/

2) To be honest, I'm just trying to think positive. Without going into too much detail... There have been some unnecessary stressors in my life over the past year or 2 that I have determined was a result of having negative thoughts run the show. When I was able to stand back and reflect on the situation, i realized that I was displaying a person that I didn't like nor believe it. The first step I took was blocking out when someone started to be negative (I have a coworker who just tends to find the negative and bad in just about everything). Next, I started to be mindful of my thought process. Every single time that I would go into a negative thought rant, I would FORCE myself to look at the positive (ie. Negative: stress and uncertainty at work; positive: I have a job, medical insurance, and people who give me challenging projects to grow myself).

I'm hoping to take this new found positivity into the new year as I am a FIRM believer that you get from the universe what you put out. And... it takes a lot less energy to be happy than to be mad or depressed, especially if they are things that you can't control. emoticon

Thanks for stopping by to comment on my blogs!

I hope you get tons of motivation from your new hr monitor ; )! It can be very motivating to see good numbers.

I need to step up my efforts and get myself as motivated as I was during that time you just mentioned between holidays! You are so right I was very determined at that time. Not easy getting 100% back in that mind set for some reason but I know that is what I need!

Let's make it a great week! emoticon

Thanks for your comments on my blog! Great ideas; the bf did suggest bringing the cat to his parent's house, but they have a dog and I'm not sure that would go over well. But maybe my parents will be gracious and watch the cat and I can still take a little break and go up there. And yes, I think trying to get even small workouts in will be key!

Thanks again for your comments, and happy holidays! emoticon

p.s. for the record, I have not had pepper jelly and wheat thins in I don't know how long! But I appreciate that you know what my guilty triggers are lol

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Yes, you *MUST* find the sugar cookie tea. I'll be honest though-- i've only been able to find it at Target so far. And yes, Maurice's is a chain. It's kinda one of those hidden gem stores... not a lot of people know about it, but once you do... you're hooked!! LOL!!! www.maurices.com emoticon
