From now to then. Motivation!





This painting inspires me. She is strong, agile, graceful, expressive, and comfortable in her body.

Strong is the new skinny!

I am in the last few months of my 20's, and with a dim future of poor genetics and weight related illnesses, I have decided it's time to get in better shape. I used to be active, fit, and excited about life. 6 years ago I gained an excess of 75 pounds, and now feel like I am living in someone else's body. I want to get healthy, and begin enjoying life as I used to. This is my new beginning, my new outlook, and a journey to my new body.

Fitness Minutes: 1,411

My Goals:
My biggest goal is to change my lifestyle habits. I want to eat healthier food in proper portions. I want to exercise on a daily basis- and I want to WANT to do it. I want to feel good again- active, aware, agile. I want to be able to really feel my breath reach every capillary in my lungs- to feel my heart pumping and pure energy coursing through my veins.

My Program:
I am currently focusing on counting calories and getting exercise. I take notes everyday, and I am learning about nutrition and how to control what I eat. I am taking it slow to start, so as to not scare myself away from the progress I have made so far.

Personal Information:
I am driven and motivated, although I have a tendency to justify bad habits. I am finally holding myself accountable for my actions
(and inactions) and taking a step up to the plate to prove to myself that I am capable of finishing something I start, and also to have the body I have not been able to commit to until now.

HI! :) I live in Germany. I've been here for 3 years come March. It was a huge culture shock at first but I LOVE IT HERE. I do miss things like Halloween and Thanksgiving though. We typically don't have any Halloween activities either unless we plan them ourselves and invite the locals :) We have our own Thanksgiving with some of the boy's co-workers and they love it so it's kinda fun even if it's not so traditional :)

What brought you to Sweden? I've yet to make it that far north but I'd love to sometime :)

Red hair is such a pain in the bum but I couldn't have it any other way. I have had just about every color in the rainbow but I always come back to red.

Yes.. I might curl up in a ball too if I were in one of the zombie 5k's :) A year ago when I first saw video on the Tough Mudder I was like WOW!!! It would be soo awesome to one day be able to do a Tough Mudder. So sorry for this late response.. I haven't been able to get online much. I hope things are going well with you!
