That's right, I'm getting married! The dude and I finally (oficially) decided to get hitched. Next October is probably the date (10.10.10), but he haven't really sat down with our Rabbi yet....

Every Tuesday evening the dude and I go ice skating for an hour at the gym. I've got 90 minute belly dancing classes I'm taking on Thursday nights and this weekend (2/15/09) I'm starting with a personal trainer on Sundays! Wow. I need to find my waist and loose my bat wings in a year so that I can do try on pretty dresses!

Inactive from April 2008 to late December 2008. That's 8 months of me being a lazy blob again.
It's now January 4th, 2009, and I'm starting over. The 10-15 pounds I lost using sparkpeople Feb-April 2008 are back and somehow duplicated themselves on my partner. We're getting "squishy" and just joined a gym to try and fix it!
My immediate goal is to not bake sweets anymore (I love to bake) and to do an exercise video and/or go to the gym 4 days per week.
I also am trying to do potion control of my lunches (and my partner's) by making bento boxes. Visit viola.eats on Flickr to see them.
-Eggs are my wonder food. They're so cheap!
-Doing some sort of exercise 4 days a week.
-Eat protein with every meal.
-Eat a veggie or fruit with every meal.
-Cut out the simple carbs, try and eat only whole grains.
-Eat healthier snacks (soy protein shake, yogurt, cheese stick, instead of muffins, cookies or a piece or pizza).
My name is Deena and I've lived all over. My mom is a US Diplomat and I've traveled a lot. I currently live in Boulder, CO with my boyfriend/domestic partner, he's great and thinks this site is a great idea too.
(June 2008 update- I have a REAL job as a paralegal now! No more crappy temp jobs, woohoo!)
I keep kosher at home and eat strictly vegetarian (including fish) when I go out. I'm also allergic to nuts, peanuts, chocolate, berries, most citrus fruits and some other non-edible things (i.e. drugs and flowers)

Things are going well...I haven't had a ton of time lately to blog or to drop a line. Looks like you're making great progress! Congratulations. It's a slow road for me, but I'm definitely making steps towards the right direction. I think it's time to blog.

hey! I havent checked my actual spark page in a while, I thought I would get an email or something to tell me that I had a comment, but nope, now I feel bad for such a late reply!
I do understand not being able to find people to committ with because of the lifestyle diffrences, people that have kids and are in there 20's really live a whole diffrent lifestyle than I do and face diffrent challenges--not that that is a bad thing just not really relateable for me.
I would love to get you as my "dieting buddy" (so to speak seeing as I dont feel like dieting I am just trying to loose weight in a healthy way) email me whenever and I will join one of your groups and we can chit chat on messege boards!
Spark mail me if you want I check that more frequently!

Well my schedule varies somewhat from week to week, and my work schedule doesn't usually go up until the Friday before the new week... but typically I try to make it to the gym here in Broomfield on Tues, Thur nights and Sat morning for Yoga (when my schedule permits). If I have a Tuesday off I go into Boulder for the Yoga class I met you at today.Besides that it's just whenever I get the chance before or after work.
I do have this coming Saturday off, and I do plan to be at the 10:30 Yoga class at the gym in Broomfield! Wanna join me?
