Heather's Hopes

Update: As 2015 is drawing to a close, I have decided that authentic truth is where my freedom lies - I've gained 30lbs in the last 16 months. I'm ready to begin this journey again.


My commitment is:
1. I will exercise a minimum of 10 mins every day
2. I will track my calories and stay within my Sparktracker range
3. I will track my Fitness minutes on my Spark tracker
4. I will exercise daily to reach 2000 monthly fitness mins.

6. I will drink 15 cups min of water a day.
7. I will eat 5+ servings of freggies everyday.
8. I will strength train 3 days a week
9. I will be kind as opposed to down on myself
10. I will laugh more than cry
11. I will eat more non-labeled than labeled foods
12. I will run 1,000 miles this year.


I joined SparkPeople in April 2009 with the hopes of losing 9 lbs. I ended up losing 20 lbs and finding a whole new me. A me I never knew existed. A me that loves to exercise, especially running; a me who loves to eat healthy; a me who loves to celebrate the life God has given me. I developed an entirely new, HEALTHY lifestyle and I absolutely love it.
Here on Spark I have found the inspiration, encouragement, motivation and friendship to continue on my journey to a healthy, fit, happy life.
And it is a journey, full of ups and downs, good days & bad days, but forever moving forward. I will never go back to the way I led my life before. This is MY life and I am going to LIVE and enjoy it.
