In Search of Balance

I started on SparkPeople in February of 2008 because I wanted to be a part of a community that supported my goals to look and feel better, and I wanted the accountability and measurement tools that SparkPeople offers.

I reached my goal and maintained it for a while, lost my ground when I clerked in the summer of 2010 and made it all the way back to my goal for my wedding on 1/1/11

I reached my goal and maintained it for a while, lost my ground when I clerked in the summer of 2010 and made it all the way back to my goal for my wedding on 1/1/11

I really love to "dine" and took some trips after I finnished the bar exam that included some really delicious food. I've also been put on some medicine that seems to be slowing my metabolism. I am now more than 10 pounds away from my goal weight and have started working a desk job with really long hours that don't really allow me to exercise or be as active as I would really like. I am working to change my perspective so that exercise can be relief from my stress rather than add to it, and I'm trying to be healthy. I want to feel good about my body again, but more than that I want to feel good.

Fitness Minutes: 38,709

My Goals:
I like to call my work out and nutrition goals my "Hot Body Plan."

I want to regain the body I had at my wedding and find a healthy balance of working out, eating well and enjoying life.

I want a tone hot body that I am confident will carry me though life's adventures.

I want to eat smart but allow myself to enjoy the declious delights of life.



My Program:
I'm watching my calories being careful to balance the not as healthy meals with declious salads and fresh fruit. I am trying to get protein in every meal.

I am trying to get cardio in 4 days a week. I do a Zumba class on Saturday mornings and any other time I can fit it in. I am trying to fit in one or two more exercises but things that I find fun or recreational, rather than just trying to get the highest calorie burn.

Personal Information:
I am a third year attorney for a small office of a large firm in Houston, Texas. I am very active in my church, and madly in love with my amazing husband.


Other Information:
I believe that Jesus is my Lord and savior and that the gospel is the answer to every question.

I'm an avid reader, a world traveler and I love good food, good company, and good fun!

The current diagnosis is Indeterminate colitis. It is pretty much what the doctor said before that I show signs of Crohn's and Ulcerative Colitis and the tests can't determine if it is one or the other. About 10-15% of people with an IBD are diagnosed with Indeterminate colitis and about 50% of those eventually are diagnosed with either Crohn's or UC. My doctor still thinks it's most likely Crohn's and is treating me accordingly. He upped my current meds and so far the only side effect is that I am feeling better emoticon

Now that I'm over the initial pissed off part of this diagnosis I am ready to deal with it and get better. The faster I get better the sooner I can start having my red wine again!

How have you been? Do you have pictures from your wonderful vacation a little while ago?

Thanks for the sweet words and prayers. I know it can be controlled and there are periods of remission but I have to just get there. I am doing a lot of research on how to kick this disease's but and I am ready to do it emoticon

You are such a beautiful girl! Keep your focus on the bigger picture, not the little details that get in the way sometimes.
