She got both feet on the ground
And she's burning it down
She got her head in the clouds
And she's not backing down
From March to May of 2014 I didn't work out and gained back 50 lbs of the 80 pounds that I had previously lost. In June, I got back on track and I'm back down to where I was before I put all that weight back on. Only THIS time, I'm still going strong and more determined than ever to reach my wildest dream goals.
Back to square one. Okay not square ONE, maybe square 3 lol Gained. a lot. Time to get with it n stick with it!
So far, so good! Been maintaining the success I've had but now.. Really want to push the rest of the way to make it to my goal weight. It sure is a long way from my all time high of 260 or even when I first signed up on sparkpeople in the 230's. I'm proud of my accomplishments and know I've got it in me to make it to my goal and get in the best shape of my life
Give em hell, turn their heads
Gonna live life 'til we're dead.
Give me scars, give me pain
Then they'll say to me, say to me, say to me
There goes the fighter, there goes the fighter
Here comes the fighter
That's what they'll say to me, say to me, say to me,
This one's a fighter
I started down this journey once before thinking that the "ah ha" moment had hit me. I did well and lost 40 lbs at my lowest. It seems as though I've been going through these 6 month up and down cycles so my very first goal no matter how slowly it comes off ... Is to be able to look back once I reach my goal and say I stuck with it! Little ups and downs, good days and bad days... Sure, they're to be expected but to go 6 months without I'm caring about my body and health is not acceptable. Here's to never ending up back in the 230's again!
My ultimate goals are to weigh 135 lbs and/or 15% body fat and run a 5k in under 30 min
^like 6 years old but still true :-)
I eat clean and healthy real food.. kind of primal/paleo based but with my own modifications to make it a suitable lifestyle change for myself.
My current excercise program is running, Camp gladiator bootcamp from 10/13/2014 to 11/15/2014. I'm on day 52 of 83 days of Jamie Eason's Livefit strength training/lifting program on bodyspace and I love to dance so I take all kinds of zumba and hip hop classes throughout the week.
Call it what you want, just remember... obsessed is a word the lazy use to describe the dedicated. ;-D

There's an inner beauty about a woman who believes in herself and knows she's capable of the extraordinary.
A beauty in the determination of a woman who dances to the beat of her own drum regardless of the obstacles in her path.
The beauty of a woman whose strength and courage comes in loving and being loved.. unconditionally.
So keep believing, keep dancing, keep singing the song in your heart and most of all.. keep being your beautiful self, sis!

There will be days when you feel like giving up... don't.
There will be days when you feel like you don't have what it takes... you do!
There will be days when everything seems to be falling apart... it won't!
Things will work out in the end,
and those will be the days that you'll look back and say,
"I'm glad I never gave up!"
Have a great Spring and stay Sparked!

"I have come to accept the feeling of not knowing where I am going. And I have trained myself to love it. Because it is only when we are suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight, that we force our wings to unravel and alas begin our flight. And as we fly, we still may not know where we are going to. But the miracle is in the unfolding of the wings. You may not know where you're going, but you know that so long as you spread your wings, the winds will carry you." — C. JoyBell C.
Have an awesome day!
