Howdy there!
My name is Natalie and I'm so grateful to be motivated by this awesome life-bettering tool. I am trying to bring more balance into my life and be more holistic about healthy living instead of having an all-at once or nothing approach.
I think it is so wonderful that we are all individuals, but united in our positivity and helping each other succeed. Sparkpeople has given me such encouragement on tough days. Thanks for joining me in this amazing quest! I welcome new friends with open arms.

Member Since: 9/4/2010

Fitness Minutes: 1,528

My Goals:
Someday I would love to teach yoga classes for recreation. My general weight loss goal is to lose 36 pounds by September 2011.

-Enter in my foods eaten daily
-Exercise 30 minutes 3x a week (at least)
-Eat 1450-1600 cals daily
-Consume more water
-Keep a positive attitude about my body
-Become more accepting of myself and less critical of so-called imperfections
-To be a good support system for my Sparkfriends

My Program:
I am measuring my food whenever possible and entering what I eat in the MyNutrition app. I am trying to drink less energy drinks (I'm a student, it's hard!)and consume less high calorie beverages. My goal is 20 minutes of exercise every day, carrying snacks with me when I go places.

Personal Information:
Originally I'm from Washington state. I watch a lot of movies in my free time and love to read a good book when I can gather enough patience to sit still.

My favorite books that I've recently read are: "America the Beautiful" by Moon Unit Zappa, and "The Pleasure of my Company" by Steve Martin.

Fave movies watched within the last month: "Fire" by Deepa Mehta and "Harry Brown" starring Michael Caine.

Fave exercise DVD's: Yoga Zone series, Jillian Michael's 30 day shred and Yoga Meltdown

A side note:Resisting the temptation of Indian food requires much willpower.

Other Information:
My favorite quotes: "Be the change you wish to see in the world"-Gandhi

"Men are born to succeed, not fail."-Henry David Thoreau

"If they can make penicillin out of moldy bread, they can sure make something out of you." (when I mention this quote, I imagine it is being spoken to me, and don't mean to offend anyone)
-Muhammed Ali

"People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness. Just because they're not on your road doesn't mean they've gotten lost. "
-Dalai Lama

    Just wanted to stop by and see how your doing. Hope your life is wonderful and hope to see you on here soon. Thank you so much for the support this past winter. I was going through an extreme anxiety period and could bring myself to say it then. Your kind words were close to my heart and inspirational to me. emoticon

    Beautiful Woman Award!!! emoticon
    Once you've been given this award for a first time, you should paste it on the wall of 8 women who deserve it! If you receive some in return, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out and don't you want your lady sparkfriends to feel beautiful today?

    So what are you waiting for? Pass on the award and share the joy!
