The Work-Free Zone

Tuesday, October 15, 2013

Soooo in case anyone has been wondering about the reason for my spark-aitus ( spark people hiatus lol) it's mostly due to the crazy job I started last October.
6 days a week I do marketing and educating for a certain Chiropractic company. Yes...I said company. 56 clinics and growing. In the midst of saving lives thru chiropractic care I have lost my personal life. Well, most of it. Most of my week I'm living and breathing all things chiropractic with corporate nazis governing my every move! Don't get me wrong, I enjoy the mission of my job but being puppeted by a corporation is less than ideal. All you corporate sell outs know what I mean! You do 90% of the work while they pay you a quarter of a percent of what you bring in for the company? A simple nod will do. I feel you.

So I've decided that I'm choosing spark as my work free zone in an effort to gain some of my identity back! I'm excited to lose the 5 pounds I let form on my ass from all the time I decided wine was a better stress relief than working out this past year. I'm going to touch up my roots that I let grow out while I tried to catch up on sleep and I'm finally gonna let my hair grow out instead of cutting it and using the excuse that I have no time to style it! I'm going to stop changing myself for my job.

This is my work free zone. I'm reclaiming my identity. No corporations allowed.

  Good luck! It is tough, having a job where you're expected to have no life outside of work. Been there, it's miserable. It's a great plan, doing some things for yourself! :)

    emoticon Don't let the scale get you down. You can still lose inches on your waist, hips, legs, arms, etc...even if you don't lose an ounce.

    Yay! I have been on a scale plateau, too, but Crossfit is definitely making a difference in other ways.

Day 20...JEANS CHALLENGE!!!

Monday, September 10, 2012

So I've been hovering between a 4 and a 6 now for a few months and I'm ready to make a decision... 4 it is! So since I've thrown my scale out, have begun to get a handle on emotional eating, and have started to learn how to eat for the condition i deal with (hypoglycemia) I feel like I'm ready to make the next step. I've purchased a pair of 4's that are snuuuuggg! I have tried on a few 4's that fit just fine but these ones i had to squeeze into. I've seen a few people on here do this before and I think it's a stellar idea! So here are my Day 1 pics...
Front View...eeeesssh!


Side View


Back View



So riiiiiiiiiippp! Band aid is off! I feel like some real progress is gonna be made! I'm excited to see what changes are made week to week :)


Here's to the more comfortable size 4 ME!

    i did the same exact thing today. I wont tell you the size I had on but I had a full muffin top...i didn't have the courage to post the pic. I just want to be able to fit in my jeans comfy again so that is my goal. I'm going to try them on again in 30 days. Keep in touch...i'm curious as to how fast you will see your results.
