Reclaiming My LIFE!!

So I joined SparkPeople in late February 2009, at 184 pounds. This was following an illness where I had lost over 15 pounds in a month. My goal was to reach 150...and with diet and exercise, I reached 149 pounds in August 2009! The lowest I ever hit was 147. And I looked and felt GREAT!

Well, life is still good. Better than good, in fact. I now have a house, two dogs, and a life - a great one, with a wonderful man that recently asked me to marry him! My jewelry business has taken ...

Well, life is still good. Better than good, in fact. I now have a house, two dogs, and a life - a great one, with a wonderful man that recently asked me to marry him! My jewelry business has taken off and I quit my fulltime job to work it, leaving me time to do the things I love. I spend lots of time with friends and family, work hard but still have time to play, and I love my life. Except that as I got happier, I stopped focusing on things like my fitness and nutrition. And guess what - those size 14s I gave away? I need them again. Which does NOT make me happy! Over the last year I have lost 20 pounds twice, and gained it back twice. I would like to get back to the healthy lifestyle I lived when I was single, as well as prepare our house to be healthy when the kids come in a few years and life REALLY gets crazy!

And, let's be honest. I want to look gorgeous in my wedding dress....and I don't want to order a size 20.

My Goals:
1. Get back to eating healthily on a regular basis.

2. Lose the 45 pounds that crept back up after 3 short years.

3. Learn how to cook a variety of healthy recipes so that we can have family dinners without gaining weight.

4. Get my strength and muscle tone back to where it was in 2009.

5. Learn how to not beat myself up when I have setbacks.

6. Wear the wedding dress of my dreams in 2012.

My Program:
1. Work out at least 4 times a week, targeting specific muscle groups each time.

2. Stay within a caloric range conducive to weight loss, with 1 day off per week to keep myself sane and my body guessing.

3. Try at least one we healthy recipe per week to expand my culinary skills...

4. Incorporate as many fresh vegetables and fruits as possible into our daily diet.

5. Plan as many meals in advance as possible, and when going out with friends determine what I will order ahead of time whenever possible so as not to derail the work I am doing.

ps. Saw your comment about pumpkin bagels...did you know that if you ask them to, Einstein will scoop out the middle of your bagel for you? Cuts your carbs in half, and I honestly didn't miss the middle section.

Food & Wine was awesome...and as usual, I ate WAY too much food, none of which was even remotely healthy. I'll be paying for it for the next three weeks, but it was worth it. You and the future hubs should think about coming down for it one of these years - you'd probably love it!

I know, it looks like I'm portioning out a serving of Oxycodon or something...LOL. I'm just horrible about forgetting to take them, so if I log them in SP, I tend to remember to actually take them. Same with the suppliments.

As for the slowcooker, I have a bunch of good, reasonably healthy recipes, if you're interested in them. We use our 1-2 times a week and it's AWESOME, especially if I can make enough to cover at least 1-2 lunches in addition to dinner. If you want them, let me know and I'll PM them to you on FB.
