Well this is the first post of hopefully many. I found Spark two days ago while reading an article on people.com about weight loss. I thought to myself "caitlin you should check this out. if it looks legit you should try it." well here i am! this website is AMAZING! its similar to the weightwatchers site, but free, and i just feel like there's more here than on that site. weightwatchers has worked for me in the past. so lets see how this goes!
i'm not much of a dieter. i love food. i'll be the first to admit it. i unwind after a long day of work by coming home and cooking a wonderful dinner for my boyfriend and i. so its tough for me to do a diet like jenny craig where i have to eat bland food that just doesn't excite me. with this i can eat what i want (to a point) and still feel good about myself. now i don't neccessarily have a problem with weight, but my boyfriend and i moved to NH at the end of summer this year and we don't really know many people yet, so we got in the habit of coming home from work and sitting down to watch a movie or play video games to pass the time. thus... weight was gained. when it was warmer we went on a few walks a week through our adorable new town. but as you might've guessed, it gets cold up here in the north country pretty early. i love the cold, i'm a skier, but when its in the 20's after work and i'm stressed out it was tough to get the motivation to go for a walk. well, ski season is here and i have a season pass so i'll be doing that at least twice a week. in the summer i'm VERY active. we go on hikes almost every day and just love being outdoors. so getting back on track with fitness shouldn't be too tough.
the tough part will be food. i watch julie & julia and wish i was either one. i want to go to culinary school. i love cooking. so my challange for this new year will be to learn how to make yummy food while cutting calories and fat. an exciting prospect if you ask me. we'll see how it goes.
anyhoo... on to this evening. i'll be working till 5 today (LOVE how i can blog at work right now) then i'm heading to gunstock to get my season pass. after that i'm heading home to work out while my wonderful boyfriend makes me dinner (he cooks once in a blue moon. awesome cook, but he knows how i love to cook so he stays away from the kitchen unless he's cleaning it lol). then we'll hang out and watch the ball drop. tomorrow... SKIING!!! can't wait.
anyhoo... happy new year everyone. i hope your evenings will be wonderful!
