Drink water, track food, move!

Hi. I'm Heather, a 36-year-old San Diego transplant. I've been on SparkPeople for a couple of years and have made some really great friends here.

Goals and hopes for myself in 2013:

* I'm going to run my first 10K and keep running 5Ks, which will help me reach my annual fitness minutes goal, too.

* I want to do more things that scare me. I had a couple of things on an adventure list for 2012, but I didn't do them. It's ON this year! Climbing Cowles ...
Hi. I'm Heather, a 36-year-old San Diego transplant. I've been on SparkPeople for a couple of years and have made some really great friends here.

Goals and hopes for myself in 2013:

* I'm going to run my first 10K and keep running 5Ks, which will help me reach my annual fitness minutes goal, too.

* I want to do more things that scare me. I had a couple of things on an adventure list for 2012, but I didn't do them. It's ON this year! Climbing Cowles Mountain in San Diego and taking a spin class - these two things scare the hell outta me, so I'm definitely doing them.

* I am determined to stop beating myself up. What good comes from it? I wouldn't talk that way to anyone else, so why is it OK to do that to myself? Sounds logical, but following up with action is tough. I consciously did this before and was amazed at how much better I felt.

* Taking care of my health is another big goal. I avoided doctors for years and let small problems grow larger. I don't have time and energy to waste, so I need to tackle health issues as they crop up. Tracking my food, drinking enough water, and eating fresh, beautiful foods will be my baseline for healthy living. If it's a habit, it takes very little work.

SparkPoints: 43,066

Fitness Minutes: 51,934

My Goals:
July 2013:
* 1,000+ fitness minutes
* 8 glasses of water a day
* Jump rope 1 min without stopping
* Track food and stick to my calorie range
* Be nicer to myself (and others!)

My Program:
I've backed off training for a 10K for now, but I want to run the Iron Girl 10K in December.

I've started doing a Kaia FIT workout 3 times a week, and I love how challenging it is. It's a bootcamp/Crossfit-type workout with lots of intervals and bodyweight work.

I'm gluten-free on the recommendation from a nutritionist, and it's working for me. I've finally started to lose weight and it has eliminated some embarrassing issues, as well.

I'm one big experiment lately!

Personal Information:
I live north of San Diego and I'm always up for a walk/hike/run in this gorgeous weather. If you're game, let me know!

Other Information:
When I run fast, even for just a few seconds, I feel like Wonder Woman. Any Prince song from back in the day can instantly improve my mood.

No alcohol, no sugar and no caffeine?

What if a dressing or tomato sauce or bread has sugar in it. Does it count? Or are we talking about added sugar like sweetened drinks (starbucks for sure)?

How are you defining it?
