Use It And Lose It!

Hi, my name is Clare. I'm 27, I work a boring office job, and lately, pounds are just creeping on. I'm pretty active, but I have a problem with portion sizes. I was a swimmer in high school and worked out like a maniac in college, and I haven't changed my eating habits to reflect my more sedentary life. I'd really like to get back to my pre-work world weight.

I was on Spark last summer, and I "wintered" pretty well here in Chicago. I'm back again - this time I'm trying to get into the best shape ever for...MY WEDDING! I'm getting married in October of '08.

Leave a message, I'd love to hear from you.

Fitness Minutes: 2,474

My Goals:
- Enter a 5K (strangely, I've never run a 5K)
- Enter another 10K.
- Fit into my college clothes!
- Have more energy.
- Make it to the gym.
- See stomach muscles. GRRRR!!
- Wake up ealier (to go to the gym in the mornings).

My Program:
I was on Spark last summer, and it was great for me - I lost 13 lbs! Over the winter, some weight has crept back. The biggest news for me is that I'm getting married in October, so I'd really like to be in tip top shape for the wedding (and the honeymoon!).

I'm still dealing with an injured knee, but I now have a gym in the basement of my building, so I have no excuse not to get those cardio minutes in.

Hey, glad you're back. I've made a new commitment recently too. So you are from the Chicago area? We are going up next month to watch my brother graduate from Navy Basic Training. It is up in Great Lakes...we are staying in Waukegan. Close to you?
