THE WORLD IS MY PLAYGROUND!!

Hi all!

I'm "sillyrichie," and I'm 34 years old. I've struggled for a while with my weight (years actually), and now I am going to give up all of the excuses I've been hiding behind. It's time for a new start. Actually, after a breakup of a common-law relationship, and then marriage to my absolute soulmate (the one person I should have waited for), a new start would be a great idea!

I used to say I couldn't work out at all, even as my legs deteriorated to a point ...
Hi all!

I'm "sillyrichie," and I'm 34 years old. I've struggled for a while with my weight (years actually), and now I am going to give up all of the excuses I've been hiding behind. It's time for a new start. Actually, after a breakup of a common-law relationship, and then marriage to my absolute soulmate (the one person I should have waited for), a new start would be a great idea!

I used to say I couldn't work out at all, even as my legs deteriorated to a point where I couldn't walk anymore. So I have to relearn everything...how to eat, how to think, how to love life. It's coming a whole lot easier!

Basically I'm on here because I figure someone out there's had something similar and I like lending support as much as I need to be supported. Life's not ONLY what you take from it, it's what you give back! If you want to talk, please feel free to contact me and I'll write back!

SparkPoints: 13,250

Fitness Minutes: 12,938

My Goals:
Long term goal: to run the Boston Marathon in the next 4 years.

Smaller goals:
1. to fit my wedding dress by my vow renewal date (Oct 20!!).
2. to reach a healthy body weight.
3. To run a 5k by the end of November :)

My Program:
I've recently rediscovered how good water tastes with a little lemon juice in it! I've also been carefully measuring my portions and working out regularly.

My workout consists of running the C25K program (I'm currently restarting the program but REALLY trying to KILL it this time), and still can't believe the progress this program helps you make! On my off days I go for a long walk and do some strength training. One day, my "pipe dream" goal is to be able to run the training plan at the link below, but we'll see how well I do at C25K first :)

Personal Information:
My name is Richelle, and I'm very silly (hence "sillyrichie"). I take great pride in being silly because it is, I believe, what keeps me looking as young as I do! I am from Canada (born and raised in Manitoba), but I spent a good chunk of time in the Niagara region in/near New York state (and I still get homesick for it). I recently moved to Virginia to be with my amazing (and supportive) husband, and absolutely LOVE it!!!

Other Information:
I love to read, I love music, and I love to cook. I also love to give people things (even if all I give them is a smile, which is sometimes the biggest gift a person can receive). I thrive on being encouraging - if you need a cheerleader, I'm your girl!

So sorry to hear you've been struggling this week! Sometimes we have our down weeks, just remember to get back up. Hope things pick up for you again soon. You can do it!

Yep, I'm doing the Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving day - ACK! I'm really excited! Turning into a morning person eh? You'll get so much more done. I've been a morning person since I had kids... I guess kind of by default! Glad things are going well!
