The time is now...

So many best intentions and yet I am currently struggling with motivation. I contribute that to a bit more stress than usual and an inbalanced sleeping cycle. Need to re-energize!

Currently training with a women's walking to running group for a 5K race in October. I am thankful for the opportunity because it is a fitness goal that I am committed to.

My intention is to focus on being present and mindful. I do hope to have success.

Looking forward to ...

My Goals:
My ultimate goal is wellness (mind, body, spirit) and this is a journey I wish to begin.

I am a 31 year old woman and would like to lose 89 lbs by December 2011. I feel this will increase my energy level and allow me to participate fully in the activities I love to do such as hiking, tennis, dancing etc.

I am also on my journey to becoming a runner! I participated in my first 5K in June 2010 and my pace was14:41 mi/min. I am entering another 5K race in October and would like to improve my pace.



My Program:
Currently participating in a women's walking to running program that meets twice a week for the next 3 months. This program is helping me to train for my upcoming 5K in October 2010.

Also, focusing on walking/running 3-4 times a week for at least 30 minutes (8-10 miles per week).

In a couple of weeks, I will begin to journal my nutritional intake.

One day at a time.

Personal Information:
I am a PhD student and consultant in the field of leadership studies...and I love it! Energized by life, positivity, spirituality, music, learning, running and the healing arts.

That's so great! I'm super excited for you! I was really nervous to go through with the surgery at first but finally just decided to put everything in God's hands. Once I relinquished control, everything just sort of fell into place! It's all about having faith :-) I'll keep you in my prayers for sure!

And yes, I can't believe I'm moving to Atlanta so soon after having surgery! My new job is going to be extremely challenging so I'm praying for strength at the moment :-) I'm definitely going to need it! I'm driving down there in a week and a half!

Hey there! How are things going? Are you still planning to have the surgery? Let me know if you need to talk or have questions about what it's like on the other side! :-)

Thanks so much!

I'm excited for you! I was SO nervous about my surgery but am so thankful to have it behind me. You won't regret it! It's the best decision you can make for yourself! (at least, that's how I feel :-)). Good luck with everything and don't hesitate to reach out if you need anything or have questions. I found a lot of support here on Sparkpeople and that has made everything so much easier.
