so i just noticed it's been FOREVER since i last posted a blog. i apologize. lol.
i recently volunteered to participate in an event, which i happen to think is a really important one. on october 14th, i will be walking in the 2012 Walk to End Alzheimer's in Hartford, CT. i'm determined to hit (hopefully, exceed) my fundraising goal, but i need a little help. so far, i've emailed my friends, co-workers, old co-workers, family... and idk if people think that they have to donate $20 or something, but they DON'T! if all you can donate is $1 or $5, that's helpful! it's for a great cause. Alzheimer's Disease research and awareness is so important!
if you're interested in making a donation to this great cause, please visit the link below.

hello sparkers ;)
haven't posted a blog in a longggg time. sorry bout that. lol. hmm..where to start?! well, when i started the new job in august, i managed to put on 5 lbs. in the first month transitioning into my new role at work.. soon after, i met a guy at work, started dating him (big mistake: never date someone that works in your building again, wendi!) and i just ended it last sunday. he treated me better than any man has, but i found our focus on our health was very different (i make mine a top priority; enough said) and i couldn't see us working out long term. so, that was tough, but better for me in the long run. so.. in the time i was dating him, his eating habits wore off on me and i become lazy, and ate fast food and cookies and ended up putting on more weight. so i decided that i had had enough, and got back on my grind. i'm at 155/156 right now and working hard to lose the weight and get down to a feel good weight. i'm eating clean and hittin the gym hard and feeling a lot more like myself again. i am starting to see my definition coming back and i can feel changes happening in my body and i know in the next 2 months, i'll be back to where i want to be. i keep thinking bout spring/summer.. can't wait!!! i plan on having a killer bod this summer. you know what i noticed that i'm going to try REALLY hard to make sure doesn't happen again this year?? every year since i've lost the weight, i put on the same 15 lbs between september and december. every year. and it is so frustrating to have to work so hard to lose the same 15 lbs every year!! so this year, i plan on getting more fit than i ever have, and come september, kick it up a notch! really get super focused. act like i have a beach to be strutting in december, because i can't gain 15 lbs every winter. it's not okay with me. it's embarrassing, and angers me. so yea, it's always good when you can take a step back and notice a pattern of your actions... so that's my plan! stay consistent - year round! also, i'm really trying to not focus on the number on the scale so much because it's more about how i feel and look.. but anyway, yea, just wanted to touch base with you all and let you know i'm here... working hard and taking care of myself!! hope you all are doing well!

been a while since i blogged here, so i just wanted to tell you all that the new job is going great, i am still working out and eating right... gotta stay on track through the upcoming months.. it's always the toughest time of the year... i hate winter with a passion lol however, the fall weather is perfect weather for working out :) i'll post some new pics soon.. i'm actually on vacation until monday, so plenty of time to focus on myself and staying motivated. my goal throughout winter is to no maitain between 140 and 145. i don't want to be any heavier than 145 the entire winter. that way, when spring hits, it'll take no time to get super lean for summer! look at me, already thinking bout next summer lol. this weekend i have a wedding on BOTH saturday and sunday to attend. craziness!!! anyway, i've gotta get some things done. hope all of you are doing well!!!

forgive me for neglecting you, sparkies!!! i've been livin the good life! got word last wednesday that i got the job! i start this upcoming monday!!! i will have a new schedule: M-F 10:30-7, a new commute, a new building, new coworkers, new tasks to handle, and a 20% increase in pay. VERY EXCITED! once again, my persistence pays off! i got declined after my first interview because they went with someone with more experience with higher wealth clients, but this time.. i got it ;) during training (which is 5 weeks) i will have to work 830-5... that's gonna be rough on me. it will interfere with my current gym schedule, so i'll have to figure something out. this month i've been hitting the beach a lot, relaxing, and enjoying life. really feelin thankful for all the little things. so thankful for beautiful weather. this month i've also said yes to treats more than any month this year. so yea, that's going to stop because i'm not trying to go backwards when i'm clearly moving forward!!! lol i'm feeling a little emotional about today being my last day in my current position. i've worked in this building for over 4 years, made the same commute, had the same schedule/routine, i know my job like the back of my hand.. i'm great at what i do, and today will be my last time walking in and out of there.. crazy how time just flies. i've had some small promotions in this building, but this is a pretty big change that i'm about to make. not really nervous about the job, but i can get a lil anxious when it comes to changes, especially when i over-think things.. just trying to have faith that everything will be good, and i'll adapt well, and that this "training" schedule doesn't mess me up too much lol. anyway, i've gotta get ready for work... just wanted to check in and let you all know what's been goin on here.. thank you all for your kindness and continued support! you guys are the BESTEST!! :) who's ready for august!!??!?!

so i just would like to share how exciting it is to see my thighs getting smaller and my buns getting tigher!!! very exciting! i'm working so hard on transforming my lower body and it's working.. makes me wonder how good i can make them look, which only motivates me more! i'm feelin really positive about my fitness right now.. also, i randomly decided to do somethin different for cardio yesterday and so i got on the treadmill and i was like, hmm... it's been a long time since i ran (like 8 mths or something) and so i was like.. you have to run a mile straight without stopping in under 10 min.. and i DID! i was pretty impressed, especially because about 2 minutes in, i got this cramp in my side.. and i wanted to stop, but i told myself to keep going and i'm very stubborn, so i did, i kept goin! and then.. i did it again today! felt good to run. didn't think i'd ever hear myself say that, but it makes me feel lean and alive.. my blood pumping hard through out my body.. good feelin LOL anyway, i also have an interview on wednesday (my day off) at noon time, for that position that i didn't get the last time i interviewed for it back in may.. hoping this interview brings a job offer! i already have a new outfit from express all picked out that i plan on rockin.. i'm feeling very confident. not cocky. just like, if they can't see what an asset i would be, then that's on them. lol. and then after the interview i have a dentist appt which i'm kinda bummin about but whatever, it is what it is... not gonna stress it. (trying not to, anyway lol) but yea, just wanted to share all this with all of you.. hope you have a great, productive week... time to kick it into gear..almost half way done july already! gotta stay on point!
