Hi, I've been on SparkPeople for a few years off and on. I want to be healthy but I get busy, unmotivated and lose track of my goals. I am back again and am determined to stay focused this time. I am thankful for all of the motivation I find here in other SP members. Reading the Motivation Boards helps tremendously. I know we can all do this together!

Now that I'm 34, I want to be as healthy as possible. It's time to take control of my life and make this journey the best it can be!

I have a hard time staying on track because I don't have a goal weight. Please don't hate me. I thank my lucky stars every day that I have good metabolism. But I want to be a fitness fanatic. I want the physical and mental energy that exercise gives you. I want to be sculpted, toned, cut. I want to look like I work on my body like it's my occupation. I'd actually like to get certified as a personal trainer one day because I've been told I really inspire and motivate people (when I'm ON TRACK, that is).

This year has been the best yet for fitness. But I have a long way to go. I found out I love Zumba classes. Any other Zumba lovers out there?

I then discovered the Couch to 5K running program this year, found out I love running (a huge surprise to me), and I graduated. I ran in my first 5K on June 28 and it was an amazing experience. I want to keep running and do more 5K's and work up to a 10K.

I also discovered the 100 Pushups program (ask me for info). I have just begun that and can't wait to graduate.

I would love to find a workout buddy (or even a few) here. I need someone who has the same goals and a similar situation to mine. Ideally, I would like to find someone who I can keep in contact with via email and text messaging. We should hold each other accountable and check in daily with each other. Please help! :)
