Here we are 2013, I've been with Sparkpeople for almost 7 years. In 7 years I have made some amazing friends who are so supportive and loving. I have learned about nutrition and fitness. I challenged myself to accomplish several 5K & 10K races and also fund-raised for the Arthritis Society and completed the Toronto Waterfront 1/2 Marathon in 2009. After completing the 1/2 in 2009, I took a little break from running and when I attempted to train again, I was pushed to far to fast and end up injured. It took a long time to get my shins back to normal. As a result - I got lazy.
In the last few years I have focused more on my career than my health. Thankfully, this has been successful and my career is going where I planned.
So here I am ready to make changes. Not because it is New Years Day but because it's the right time.

    Thank you so much for the lovely comments on my page.
    Yes I am proud of myself. I am prouder that when I start to see myself back slide, I go ahead and try to pull my boot straps up again. It is harder, but it is worth it.
    Back to C1 with me this week.
