Hi, I'm Hope and I've come to Spark People to help myself get over the hump I've been hurdling for the past few month. Earlier this year I lost 54 pounds and now I'm ready to get to my goal weight. I feel amazing now so I'm so excited to get back into my exercise and socializing routine, finish school and get my business started.

Member Since: 10/23/2013

Fitness Minutes: 625

My Goals:
I've been gentle with myself during the holidays and my goal is to maintain my weight loss until after January 1, 2014.
In January I will be renewing my membership at the aquatic center near my home and begin walking up there and swimming at least 3 times a week. Tomorrow morning I am getting up early to do the chair workouts on sp, writing in my journal, meditating and then I'll get ready for work, I'll be prepared for a wonderful, motivated day.

My Program:
I am going to do the 12 minute core workout here on spark people as well as the 9 minute workout, at least once a day but I would like to do it twice a day.
I am going to start going to the aquatic center to swim 3 times a week and to also participate in Thai Fusion twice a week. I will be walking to the aquatic center and home each time I go there.
I'm going to get back on the healthy vegan wagon and stop drinking caffeine and sugar. I am also going to continue to drink kefir water every day and will increase that to several times a day after my grains multiply enough.

Personal Information:
My chosen name is Hope Follows because I am all about Hope and Hope Follows me where ever I go.
I live in the beautiful pacific northwest and am almost finished with my training to help others find their self-love and live their best life.
I am working on developing my website and will have more time to actively blog on my site and here at Spark People. My web address is: www.hopefollowsalifetime.com I only have a few blogs posted but would love to have you check out what I have begun.

Other Information:
One of my favorite quotes is "life is all about the journey, not the destination" Enjoy your life every day and if you would like encouragement about living your best life, I'm your gal.

    ""DON'T QUIT""

    When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
    When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
    When the funds are low, and the debts are high,
    And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
    When care is pressing you down a bit,
    Rest if you must, but don't you quit.

    Life is queer with its twists and turns,
    As everyone of us sometimes learns,
    And many a failure turns about,
    When he might have won, had he stuck it out:
    Don't give up though the pace seems slow,
    You may succeed with another blow.

    Success is failure, turned inside out,
    The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
    And you can never tell how close you are,
    It maybe near, when it seems so far.
    So stick to the fight, when you're hardest hit,
    It's when things seem worse, that you must not quit.
