Update January 4th, 2010

I have lost about 30 pounds so far! More importantly, I have more energy and I am really doing much better at managing my portions and eating foods that truly nourish my body. Finally, I am less than a month away from running my first 5K!! I run very slowly, but as a lifelong ¨runaphobic¨ I never thought I would get to a point where I could run 40 minutes straight! I will update after the race, but I´m hoping to make it in about 35 minutes. This year I hope ...

I have lost about 30 pounds so far! More importantly, I have more energy and I am really doing much better at managing my portions and eating foods that truly nourish my body. Finally, I am less than a month away from running my first 5K!! I run very slowly, but as a lifelong ¨runaphobic¨ I never thought I would get to a point where I could run 40 minutes straight! I will update after the race, but I´m hoping to make it in about 35 minutes. This year I hope to continue along my weight loss and fitness path. I am really enjoying learning how to live in a way that makes me feel and look great!

Original Info:
I have spent too many years acquiring bad eating habits and not exercising consistently. It has taking me a while to figure out that slowly but surely gaining weight over the past several years has led me to a point where I am not healthy. I am finally trying to fix these habits, so when I stumbled across SparkPeople it seemed like a good fit. The big things for me are eating healthy portions, especially when it comes to sweets, and exercising on a regular basis, not just every once in a while. No more excuses!

ah that was an awesome message!!!! thank you so much. yeah the trip was unbelievable. thought about christina and paige the whole time though - but it was good. there are really no words, but you captured it. it is unthinkable. i'm so glad i had the opportunity to do something like B&B to really savor every second out of being alive - and i did- and i learned so much. have you thought about doing it?? not sure how old you are now, but hey... could be a possibility!!!?

Are you kidding, I live to crack people up. I'm not funny at all in real life, so I need to get all the funny out here, on Spark.

Thanks for your comment on my blog! It's true, going somewhere I love does change my outlook. As for the mud, it is still here and shows no signs of drying up. We had a mix of rain and snow all day yesterday and more of the same is expected this week. We haven't had a mud season this sloppy in YEARS -- I have a feeling that what the rest of the country calls Spring won't arrive here until May, lol.
