STOP making excuses and START making changes!!

*Update* 5-30-11
I'm back on Spark (5-6 weeks in now), and recommitting myself to changing my life. I seem to come here in one year cycles and do well for 2-3 months, then disappear back into my old ways again. I am BREAKING the cycle!! I know I can't do it alone, and this time around my husband has really been working on his health too so that really encourages me to keep going at it, but I could always use some backup...so if you're game I'd love to be friends! :) Best wishes to all of ...

*from April 2009* -

The time has come for a new beginning. The start of a healthy life where I don't feel ashamed of my body, where I don't eat to satisfy my emotions, and where I don't count household chores as actual exercise. This is it - this is me saving myself. =)

~*~ FINDING HEALTHY ~*~

There will be days when I try
and days when I fail
but I'll measure my success
by the times I prevail
when I'm tired and weak
I'll make myself strong
through determination and hope
I'll keep pushing on
when the last mile seems lonely
or like it will never end
I'll remember where I started
& how impossible it seemed to begin
my feet will pound harder
my strides will grow long
& I'll know in this moment
I'm where I belong
one step closer to finding
all I'm meant to be
healthy and happy
and beautifully ME

Fitness Minutes: 5,601

My Goals:
~*~May 2011~*~
To get healthy first and foremost.

To shed the unwanted lbs - looking to hit and maintain in the 140s, once I get there that goal may change, but that's my overall aim at this time.

Conquer my bad eating habits and learn to appreciate healthier food options.

Lower my cholesterol!! Eek! :(

Work diligently on my ability to jog so that I can run a 5k sometime next year.

My Program:
I'm having issues with my eating, so for now I am trying to focus on getting my water in and eating more fruits and veggies as well as staying within my calorie goals each day - sometimes I bomb, but I keep trying, and I know I'll get it eventually. Afterall, I didn't become an emotional eater with bad snacking habits overnight, so it will take time to repair the damage and change my way of thinking.

As for exercise, I am doing cardio at least 5x a week and strength training 2-3x a week. I plan to add some yoga in eventually to try to work on flexibility. :)
