The Last Beginning

Hey! I'm Neah and am Sparking from the beautiful Rose City... more commonly known as Portland Oregon. I have lived here for all 31 years of my life and absolutely love it.

My friends, family and doggy are pretty much the most important things in my life. I love them all and am incredibly lucky to have each and every one of them.

As for me, I love to read a good book (actual book... none of this eReader stuff), I am a big lover of music and love movies. I am also a ...
Hey! I'm Neah and am Sparking from the beautiful Rose City... more commonly known as Portland Oregon. I have lived here for all 31 years of my life and absolutely love it.

My friends, family and doggy are pretty much the most important things in my life. I love them all and am incredibly lucky to have each and every one of them.

As for me, I love to read a good book (actual book... none of this eReader stuff), I am a big lover of music and love movies. I am also a bit of a TV nerd. But it must be said that I am a giant Harry Potter nerd... shhh that's just between you and I. I am also a Portland Trail Blazers lover and Oregon Ducks Fanatic (even a season ticket holder).

As for Spark, well I joined at the end of 2011 but fizzled out shortly after that. Then I gave a half hearted attempt during the fall of 2012 but thought I had everything all figured out and that I didn't need Spark... which brings me to today. I have recommitted and am incredibly determined for this to be my last "start". I have learned that I can try all I want to do this alone and just "winging it", but I am more successful when I am honest about my goals, supported by those in my life, and regularly held accountable. SP is not only a way to do all of this, but also a valuable resource for information.
I am determined to make this change. And it will start here.

Member Since: 10/18/2011

SparkPoints: 4,721

Fitness Minutes: 1,515

My Goals:
After always holding myself to high expectations. I am trying something new. I am setting easier to reach goals. A nice healthy 2 lbs a week until I reach my goal weight. Another goal is to be more self forgiving. When those little mistakes happen, I will not dwell but instead work harder the next day.

**Short term goals**
- Break 250lbs
- Lose 20lbs
- 400 cardio minutes a month
- 400 strength training minutes a month


**Long term goals**
- Under 200lbs
~Lose 130 lbs
~Run a 10K (Specifically Race for the Cure in honor of my grandmother)
~Purchase a "little black dress"

My Program:
Now that I am starting completely fresh, I am going to incorporate the SP meal planner for the next 2 months. No more struggling to figure out what meals to make or trolling diet cookbooks... until I get a better handle on my diet I am going to be very organized and focused. As this becomes easier I will start to incorporate different meal ideas and resources... but for now... STICKING TO THE MENU PLANNER.

As for my fitness... due to an injury I am sidelined from running, zumba, elliptical and most of my other preferred types of cardio. So for now I will swim 30-45 minutes three days a week and strength train/physical therapy for 3 days a week. One day I will take off.

Personal Information:
A Portland Oregon Native. I'm an only child. My grandparents were the most inspirational people I have ever known. Purple and green are my favorite colors. I have an adorable pug and beagle (puggle) mix named Abby. I double majored in Marketing and Advertising in college. And I have done some amazing things and can't wait to do more!

Weekly weigh-in is two days away. Build those biceps by pushing away from the table...and the fridge...and the cupboards...and the pantry...and you get the idea....

"Above all else, do NOT quit! The universe always bows to persistence.
The empowering approach is to see your physical challenges as assets, because overcoming obstacles forces you to develop discipline, determination and character.
These traits will carry over to other areas of your life and make you a stronger person.
