Building a Healthy Lifestyle

I joined Spark in December 2009 and my main goal at that time was to take off 50 pounds for my wedding. In the months that followed, started to develop the skills needed to make a lifestyle change. I started making healthier choices and found a love for running (thanks to the wonderful C25K program). From the beginning of December '09 til the end of February '09, I lost 27.6 pounds.

Then in the beginning of March '09 I found out that I was pregnant, and sadly I went completely off track. I gained way too much weight, but can't even say exactly how much cuz I stopped weighing myself. Now that little Miss Zoey is here, I need to get back on track. I am now heavier than I was when I first joined Spark, but I know I can lose that weight plus more to get down to my goal weight.

My Goals:
I'm hoping to drop close to 50 pounds before my wedding. More importantly, I am trying to change the way I live and my lifestyle

Updated 3/4/10
Now I am looking to continue the healthy eating in order to have a healthy pregnancy. Then in November I'll get refocused on losing the weight

Updated 12/29/10
Okay Zoey is here and with her came a lot more weight than I wanted, so it's time to get focused and lose the 60 lbs I want to reach my goal weight.

Update 6/28/11
Once again I am trying to get back on track following Zoey's birth, 8 months ago. I'm trying to learn how to adjust my life to make time for all the things that I have to do and how to make that work with my diet and exercise routine.

My Program:
Right now my diet plan involves watching my calories mainly, while also trying to increase healthy proteins and reduce fat and sugar. I track every day and try to make good choices. I am also just finishing up the C25K program and will keep running in my workout routine. I go back on forth between cardio videos at home on off days, and also throw in some Wii Fit at times. Goal is to try to get back into my strength training routine as well.

Update 3/4/10
I plan on keeping all of those things going, but making some adjustments to my calorie intake, as well as not going all out with my running and cardio.

Update 12/29/10
I need to get back to tracking my food and making healthy choices. I'm trying to figure out a workout schedule that will work given the fact I am a working mom. Really want to get back to running and hoping to also do some P90X

Update 6/28/11
Back to basics. I am working on reducing calories and making healthier choices. Trying to

Personal Information:
My name is Kristin. I am originally from Utah/Colorado. I spent four years in California for grad school, and think of that as home (I think it's the sunny weather). I moved to PA four years ago for internship and then moved to Ohio in May 2010.

I am a clinical psychologist, so I am always talking to clients about making life changes, but I have had a hard time doing so myself.

I met my wonderful husband in July 2008 and we got married in May 2010. We welcomed our beautiful daughter, Zoey, in November 2010.

I know the major holidays pass with all the yummy foods and desserts and here comes Valentines days with all the CHOCOLATE!!! It should be illegal! LOL!
Stay strong, I know you can do it. While you are in line at the store you should read your phone or distract yourself so you aren't looking around at all the yummy candy at the register!

Hey! How are you? Thanks for stopping by my page! I have been tracking my food everyday. I hate seeing that I have been going over my calorie range. So seeing that helps to eat less. It have been getting better.
We are going to joining a gym here soon. We just have to come up with the start up fees.
We should check in with each other weekly and see how everything is going. What do you think? Maybe just give each other some motivation. Have you thought about doing the picture food blog? You did very good with that...
