Me and hubby at Adele's concert in Verona, Italy
Hi and welcome to my Spark page! My name is Andreja, I'm 31 years old and I live in Slovenia. I started my weight loss journey a few years ago when I found Sparkpeople "by accident", and it has been a great experience! Now, both my husband and I are Spark enthusiasts. I have lost a considerable amount of weight already, and I'm not giving up despite the struggles. I am getting rid of the excess weight for good! At the same time I am aware that this is not just about losing weight - it's also about feeling better about myself and most of all, being healthy. And it is a lifelong journey!
I'm always happy to make new friends, everything is so much easier with support from other people who are going through similar experiences - so please contact me if you want!
Cardio: workout videos 5 days per week; walking daily - 10,000 steps
Strength training twice per week
Tracking everything I eat, staying close to my calorie range
(5% Challenge commitment)
Eating within my calorie range (depends on my exercise, but it's quite small because I'm only 5'2); burning 3000cals a week with the help of workout videos (Turbo Jam, dance workouts and strength training); striving towards an overall healthy lifestyle with as little stress as possible.
I love reading (in different languages), Turbo Jam, walking...
Life is busy at the moment so I might dissapear for a while - but I always come back!

The truth is.. we hide because we want to be found.
We walk away to see who will follow.
We cry to see who will wipe away the tears,
and we let our hearts get broken to see who will come and fix them.

Just checking in to say hi & see how you're doing... I've been pretty good on the excercise so far this week but really do struggle a bit getting 6-8 glasses of water down. Oh well, keep at it I guess... Go dawggies!

I live by this credo:
Have a little laugh at life and look around you for happiness instead of sadness.
Laughter has always brought me out of unhappy situations.
Even in your darkest moment, you usually can find something
to laugh about if you try hard enough.
~ Red Skelton ~
Look around, smile, laugh, and have a Happy Day!!

Hi Andreja !! Thought I'd drop on by and see how you are doing? You are doing very well with ur exercise !! YEAH !!! CONGRATS hon !
I've started out well with Sat and Sun, today was less,,, I did NOT mean for it to be. I have a schedule,,, 30 mins in the AM, 30 in the afternoon and 30 in the evenings before 9. LOL I call MaryAnn at 9 and HARASS the CRAP OUT OF HER !! When I first joined she was one of the ones who helped me out. YO I was soo SCARED of this challenge !! How are you adjusting to it? She and I became friends through all the help I was asking of her. On my 2nd challenge they asked if anyone wanted to be the ML (I STILL INSIST it means "MOST LOVED" and not motivational leader) and I stepped upped. LOL I had NO CLUE what one did etc. Thankfully MaryAnn is an excellent leader and helped me. She's been here and for the past 2 yrs we've been TRYING HARD to have her back again. The first year I had a surgery which had gone all wrong !! The bone ended up infected in my foot. Than it was a nightmare,,, still not finished but ALMOST ! YEAH !! And she hurt her shoulder last year. She's dealing with that also as I do the foot. HOPEFULLY next year we can get together !! I live in Maine on the harbor near Portland which is the largest city north of Boston so there are a TON of things to do here. We LOVE taking the ferry for the sunset cruise. I can't remember if it happened when I went out with MaryAnn and her H,, often times we get caught in a thunder storm. Some get scared, I LOVE IT !! LIGHTING ALL AROUND US with thunder so LOUD you wonder if you'll ever hear again ! It's sooo MUCH FUN !!

Always remember that in 'Life', whatever we do,
we are never defeated, unless....we 'give up.'
When you feel like 'giving up', remember why you
held on for so long in the first place.
No matter how you feel, get up, dress up,
show up, and never 'give up'
Enjoy your Tuesday
