Hello 2013!

“Today is the first day of the rest of your life.”



For the past two years I've placed my health on the back burner. I'm a work-a-holic that never makes time for the gym. I broke my leg, leading to a long recovery time and many months on the couch. I also recently realized that the sudden death of a close friend has led me to do some serious emotional eating as a coping mechanism.

I'm finally at a point where I feel like I have all of the motivation ...

I'm finally at a point where I feel like I have all of the motivation and support I need to move past the roadblocks and challenges from the past few years. I can't wait to get back into shape and I'm excited to do it along with everyone else on SP!

My Program:
I'm not so great at counting calories or having a set schedule for working out.

However, I have a friend who recently started the 5:2 diet and I think it might work for me.

I'm reading the book tonight and talked to a dietician about it. If there are any other 5:2 followers out there, let me know!

My program is:
1) Follow the 5:2 Diet
2) Walk or Run at least 5 miles a week
3) incorporate at least 5 minutes of calisthenics or weight training into my schedule each day






Other Information:
I'm a dog lover, painter, always looking for a good book, fanatic about college sports, and love, love, love to travel!

How you doing Oh Quiet One???? 2 more days!!! I'm staying the same, still struggling, trying to make good choices, frustrated by no feel of change BUT hanging in. Need a new plan for March- inspiration accepted.

Hi! Glad you liked the rewards idea! To tell the truth, i saw it on lots of different people's profiles and decided to copy it. I feel that breaking up my weight loss into manageable mini goals and then getting rewards every time i reach a goal would keep me motivated.

P.S.
Your dog is adorable!
