Hi there! Welcome to my SparkPage. I am a long-time (though sporadic) Spark member (over 6 years now). Spark helped me to shed 100 pounds... and though I've regained a little recently, I know that I have the tools I need to drop it again!

I'm working hard to become a fitter, healthier person. I'm focused on increasing my strength, stamina and abilities. The weight loss and size changes attendant to that are secondary in my eyes. I want to feel better, first; look better, second!

One of the things that I feel should be a part of everyone's journey is learning to love yourself, exactly as you are. You can desire to change (lose weight, get fit, be healthier or whatever!) and still love yourself. I think that may be the most important step on this journey!

"You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. YOU yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection." ~Buddha

Fitness goals:

- Complete 3 months of boot camp (DONE!)


My Program:
I will be doing boot camp again in the new year and running as the weather permits. I'll also be doing yoga.

I keep an eye on websites like LivingSocial and GroupOn to find deals on different types of fitness classes as well.



Personal Information:
I have the great fortune of being able to chase my dreams with the love of my life and partner in crime, Steve. We moved to Denver over Thanksgiving weekend 2011 and have been settling in and enjoying our new city! I'm 33 years old, no kids. I work full time at a bank. I also have primary responsibility for maintaining our home. I love our life together!!!


Other Information:
My big weight loss downfall is my love of food! I love all kinds of food - Thai, Indian, Sushi, Japanese, Vietnamese, Korean, Mexican, Greek... you name it, I love it!!

I also have a tendency to allow myself to get caught up in doing things with my friends and not making the gym and myself a priority. Finding that balance is something I'm working on right now.

    You commented on my blog about my Slimfast 321 plan. I use the program to get my hormones to level out and keep at a steady weightloss. I have done it in the past and lost 120 pounds. The key is the closer you get to goal you drop the shakes altogether, keeping on a consistant plan has done wonders for me in the past. I am going to keep track of points or calories the rest of my life and just like that the shakes are a tool to get there. Although I much prefer using Raw protein shake from Garden of life because it doesn't have additives and is Gluten, dairy, and vegan free.

    Thanks for stopping by my "cut the crap" blog! That's exactly what I was doing with my extra calories *cookie & candy time!* lol. Fruit is definitely an great alternative espcially since it's summer & most of the produce is way more yummy & fresh now!
