I am a work in progress. :)

Member Since: 1/29/2006

Fitness Minutes: 26,003

My Goals:
Lose the last 8-10 lbs

Increase muscle tone with CrossFit and lifting heavy

Continue my very active lifestyle (I am a spinning instructor and runner)

My Program:
I am following the Zone diet recommendations, tracking my food, and exercising for at least an hour 5-6 times a week.

My exercise is comprised of:

Spinning (Instructing), 60 minutes, 3x/week

Running 40-180 minutes, 2-3x/week

CrossFit or Lifting, 3-4x/week

Ab work for at least 10 minutes, 6x/week

Personal Information:
My name is Jennie. I'm 31, 5'2", and I live in Central CT with my husband, our cats, Bruno and Daisy, and our bird, Doughty.

I had much success on the Momentum plan at Weight Watchers (the reason for my very long hiatus here!). I lost 25 lbs on that program, and became a 'Lifetime' member! However, when they rolled out the new PointsPlus plan, I began gaining steadily. They have some work to do to make it work for those of us who are 'clean eaters' with less to lose.

Initially, I had planned on going back when they fixed the plan, but I have found my new home here to be a much better fit, so I have officially 'goodbye' to WW and 'Hello, again, old friend' to SparkPeople!

I am so close to my ultimate goal! I love the friends I've made so far, and I am sure SP can help me get there. :)

Other Information:
I generally like pretty simple things... Reading, kitting, embroidery, running, hitting the gym, movies with friends, walks with DH, the occasional party... The list goes on, but you get the idea.

    Sounds like the delicate balance got messed up. I am sorry about the surgery to recover from and now a cold. They sound so...trivial, but they can really be nasty sometimes. I am still hacking from one I had weeks ago! I hope you fell better soon.

    Good to see you back. How is the delicate balance going that you wrote about? Double tracking--I have major problems doing one tracking!! Could be one of the reasons I am not losing like I want to. But not gaining at least. I know there is a lot to learn and you really do burn a LOT of energy with all your fitness activities.

    I have often chosen last night's leftover dinner as breakfast because I do find non-breakfast food more palatable. Never occurred to me that I can continue that, I just need to be very aware of the food stats. Hope all is well!
