My yiayia & I at the beach in 2010. One of the very few pics of me in a bathing suit.

January 30, 2012 - Currently I am 32 yrs old and it has been 2 years since I have been on SparkPeople. Life got very busy once I split with my ex. I moved into my parents house to save for a home of my own and I started to finally get back to the me I was back 9 years ago. They say people put on weight when they are happy.. I sure did take that to heart. I have put on about 10-15 pounds since 2010 and I have gained a few inches as well; which is why I need to take them all off. Another reason is that this summer I have a few vacations in the works (one is a cruise to the Bahamas!) and I'd like to be able to wear a bikni and look toned. These cottage cheese thights I've had since I was 12 (yes really, stupid genetics) have got to go. I've been through quite a lot in the last few years and this time, this year, I want to concentrate on me. Making me better inside and on the outside. So instead of Happy New Year. it's Happy ME Year.
November 30, 2010 - So much has changed since I last posted an update. On the good side.. Not only did I buy, but I also actually wore 2 different bikini's this past summer. Granted I wasn't as toned as I wanted to be, but for the first time in at least 20 years I felt comfortable in my own skin and body. It was a wonderful feeling and I can't wait to see what it will feel like when I actually am toned. I might never want to come off the beach! The awful thing that happend was that my relationship with my boyfriend of almost 9 years came to an crashing end. It wasn't.. and still isn't.. easy, but I am getting through each day with the hope that there is a reason to all of this. In 16 days I am turning 30.. yes the big 3-0! I am not at all ready for that. In order to try and cope with not only hitting a big milestone, but also being single for the first time in almost a decade, I decided to join a gym. Not only did I do that, but also got a personal trainer! Hopefully that means that will I tone and maintain my current weight, but also by next summer I will not only feel comfortable in my bathing suit, I will look great in it too!
February 18, 2010 - Well it's been almost 2 years since I made my last update. It's now time to not only tone up, but to re-lose the weight I put on in the last few months. In ten months I'l be 30. Yes, the big 3-0. I don't know if I am ready for that or not. My goal is to turn 30 looking hotter then I did in my 20's and healthier then I ever was. I also want to be able to wear my new bathing suit (that I never got to wear last year and would not fit into it now!) this summer and not look like I was stuffed into it. So 2 big goals. I have 4 months till bathing suit season and while that sounds far away, it will be here before we know it. Can I do this? I guess I'll find out.
- New Goal: Sept 2008- To keep my weigh down this winter and tone up. I have a dress that my mom bought in Greece about 35 years ago and it never fit me until this year. Since I didn't get to wear it this summer, I want to be able to wear it next.
Hello! I joined Sparkpeople back in February 2007, but I didn't stick with it. This time I am determined to make myself healthy. With some hard work, some humor and lots of good thoughts I can do exactly what I want.
* To work out more often
* Scale down on the carbs
* Eat more veggies and fruit
* Less sweets
* Use exercise to de-stress
*To prove to myself that if I can do this, I can do anything
I'm starting out fresh again for 2012 and while I have kept some of my original weight off, I need to tone and tighten. Since it's currently winter and cold out, I am riding a excercise bike in the house along with doing some pilates. I plan to start doing Tae-Bo again and as soon as summer hits, I will be outside walking.
I'm 32, half Greek, and the rest is a mix of Scottish, French, and Scandinavian. Currently I live in Metro Detroit MI, but I wouldn't mind moving to a warmer state! I work full time for a title company and I usually enjoy it, although it can be very stressful some days. I was recently promoted to office manager in 2013 too!
I love to read, and try to do it as often as I can. I love anything from the 1930's and 1940's, especially movies and music from that era. I enjoy almost every type of music though and I listen to constantly. I am laid back, but tend to be very OCD at times. I usually can find humor in almost anything and I love to make people laugh.

People come and people go,
In and out of your life and so,
When one shines bright among the rest,
And is there when needed, you're truly blessed.
That is how I see you, friend of mine,
And why I'm sending this Valentine.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I've tried other shakes and they left an after taste. These shakes are working out like I hoped they would and they taste pretty good. I really look forward to having them on a daily basis. I'm hoping if anything that the Jill Michaels cleanse & burn will at least give me more energy and it's only 14 days. I'm going to start it soon.
