Back To Slim

I don't update my main page or blogs as much as I should... But I still Spark mostly every day! Sparkpeople literally changed my life. My past is below this but these days I am living a healthy lifestyle with the help of Spark & exercising like a mofo... because I simply love it. I Bodyrock/HIIT/WarriorZ... those sort of things. I'd bodybuild if I had the free time but I don't. I work a lot, so fit in my fitness where and as often as I can! :)
Thanks for reading and stopping by my page!! ...

Determination is set...

I used to be slim and fit, growing up. I hit 18 and left school, got a car and discovered freedom, all of a sudden I didn't have any physical activity whatsoever in my life. I always ate what i wanted and when i wanted, and i didn't stop this habit. I piled on the weight and didn't even realise what I was doing. I didn't even realise i wasn't 'me' any more. By the time I was 22, i had been over 250lbs. I joined Spark in September 2009, whilst i was still 22. Since then, i haven't looked back!! I have remebered how much I love exercise and sports, and have been eating for my body, not for the taste of junk!!!

A year down the line I have reached my second goal weight here at Spark of 160lbs. I have reached a dress size I never thought i would ever see again. And I don't hide from cameras anymore!!

I got married on 25th September 2010, I had a while out of Spark, half Sparking and half doing what i wanted - now it's time to get back and have a fit and healthy married life, and Sparkling along the way!!

My Goals:
I finally reached my ultimate goal of 138lbs after many years of hard work, sweat, blood (or not so much blood ha) and tears... It took like 2 years to go between the 140s and 130s!!

To feel wonderful about myself, clothed or naked !


My Program:
I am eating how I should be and exercising atleast 3 times a week.

Tracking all of my foods and exercise.

I am having the odd treat and meals i enjoy but i am using my self CONTROL to know when to stop and know when enough is enough!!

Personal Information:
I'm one of the minority on SparkPeople from the UK! And the North West !

I love hardcore workouts.
I like to jump rope.
I love the challenge myself.

Other Information:
I never have the brainpower to think of things for this box... i like anything and everything really and am willing to try anything!

I am so laid back i'm horizontal.

Oh you absolutely have to try CrossFit! If nothing else, go for those of us who are too scared to even try the WODs. The only bad thing I've heard about it is pushing beginners in some of the wrong ways but that won't affect you.

Do it! Do it! Do it! (If you want to, that is, no peer pressure here :-) )
I don't think you really need to worry about cliques - it sounds like it's a tight-knit community but very friendly. This of course is only hearsay because I'm far too chicken to try it myself.

Re the glute exercises - apparently I have to be careful with squats and only do deep ones, because my thighs are so used to taking over. DId some really low ones in zumba today and my bum will be sore for days!

Every reputable CrossFit box will let you do a free trial/come in and watch, etc. I sure hope you try it. It's the best thing I ever did. The price is reasonable for the personal attention you get. It's basically small group training. Not all CFs have extras, but mine also offers yoga and some kind of aerial gymnastics stuff? I don't know what it is but it's free for members. And many others do a special class for Olympic lifting. And the community is just... I can't even explain how awesome everyone is, I was last today as usual and when I ran around the bend everyone was waiting for me at the door cheering my name. Unreal!!!

I read your last comment again and I just wanted to throw out there that if you'd be more comfortable in a women's class and they have it, then by all means try it, but CrossFit guys are cool. They are NOTHING like the jerkwads from high school gym class! It is NOT just women who cheer on the last to finish. EVERYONE does. And coming from me that is saying a whole lot, because I'm not a huge fan of the other gender. Trust me. (Bullying issues... from those jerkwad high school guys... still kinda can't stand men)

Anyway... yes. You should totally go. emoticon

Hah! 'Stuck in a toned and sexy unrelaxed position'! I'm not sure I can get into such positions in the first place! But I might have just discovered what the problem with my hips, thighs and butt is now so I've got something to work on (just blogged about it - sorry, nasty new habit of directing people to my blog, that you may have noticed elsewhere!)

Glad you're getting in some good workouts. I think I've given up the idea of consistency - I'm just going with 'Did I do something exercise-like today? Yep, good day then.' I think if you feel you've got something to fall off (like a rollercoaster or a wagon), it's just more depressing. Having said all that, good luck with getting back on whatever you want to get on! :-)
