Explore. Dream. Discover.

The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
Lao Tzu


My body is beginning to win!

I'm a little teapot- short and stout!

I am a photographer with a B.A in Psychology. The love of my life, Andy, and I own a wedding photography business. I speak some Spanish- we had the opportunity to live and study in Spain and LOVED IT. I am interested in ballet, all kinds of music, becoming a competitive runner, and more than my mind can think ...

My body is beginning to win!

I'm a little teapot- short and stout!

I am a photographer with a B.A in Psychology. The love of my life, Andy, and I own a wedding photography business. I speak some Spanish- we had the opportunity to live and study in Spain and LOVED IT. I am interested in ballet, all kinds of music, becoming a competitive runner, and more than my mind can think of right now.


I am DONE DONE DONE:
Being the fat sister

Being the fat daughter

Being the fat girlfriend and mother

Being unable to wear anything I want

Being uncomfortable in my own skin

Being unhappy during summer months wishing I had lost the weight before then

Waiting for my life to start

Waiting for things to change! (They certainly don't on their own!)


-----------------------------

Random things:

1. I broke my pelvis snowboarding when I was 19.
2. I visit NYC at least once a year with Andy for our anniversary.
3. I am a great baker.
4. I tell people I look like a VS model under my clothes.
5. I am 27 as of January 2011, ahh!
6. www.facebook.com/normandashley

-----------------------------
One of my biggest inspirations is my boyfriend Andy. He ran a marathon and is constantly undertaking new challenges and accomplishing things.

I know that I need to take control of my life, and SP is helping me do that.

I like making new friends.

I want to be motivated by people on here and I like to think I help motivate others.

I think about the not so distant future and think about today and how the choices I am making now will affect the future.

I KNOW that I can do this. And do this I will.

SW=198
GW=135 or less (135 is the high end of healthy...)

Gold medals don't make champions . . . hard work does.

SparkPoints: 6,809

Fitness Minutes: 4,792

My Goals:
1. I want to complete a 10K in March 2011




2. I want to wear a bikini in June 2011



3. I want to be a role model for my two sons.



4. I want to be dead sexy, always.

My Program:
1. I am sticking to my calorie budget (1200-1550), I do this by measuring out food and calculating calories BEFORE I eat it. We do the majority of cooking at home.

2. I am getting exercise at least 3 days a week, but working on 5 days a week.

3. I am using a HR monitor (Polar HR monitor) to monitor my HR and calorie expenditure while I exercise. I love this because I know exactly how much energy I am expending during workouts- I got my HR monitor on ebay (brand new) for much cheaper than you can find at a sporting goods store.

Personal Information:
I'm 5'3, but some times stretch to 5'4. (well that's what my drivers license says!) I am the tallest girl in my family. My mom and sister are thin and fit and for some reason can do that naturally.

I am starting all of this at 198, and hope to be between 110-135 by the end of it.

I love to read, write, sing, make up my own raps, draw, paint. I own a photography business and love photo-journalism.

Other Information:
You just gotta ignite the light

And let it shine

Just own the night

Like the Fourth of July



Cause baby you're a firework

Come on show 'em what your worth

Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"

As you shoot across the sky-y-y

~Katy Perry
