Well, I started last year out right! I ended up losing 36 pounds between January and July. But after summer I got into a slump. I was in a relationship that I wasn't happy in and I again turned towards food. I gained about 15lbs of that back :(
It's now April and I can honestly say that I am in a great relationship with a man that I love. I am looking forward to moving into my new house and start to cook meals and getting back into working out. I'm hoping that SparkPeople will help me achieve my goals again!

Well, it's been a month since my last blog and I have to say that I am happy with the way things are going!!
I joined a local gym a little over a month ago with a friend of mine. She was a member before me and told me to join so we could work-out together. Well, needless to say, I am now addicted to spin class!! It is so rewarding! I feel so alive and vibrant afterwards!! And did you know you can burn up to 800 calories in one class!!
I do have my cheats days when I don't work-out or watch what I eat, but those days are happening less and less! I even just went on vacation to my hometown and managed to lose weight!
The only down side in my journey, so far, is my boyfriend's lack of motivation to join me! He compliments me on my transformation, but has not wanted to start his own! It's a little discouraging but I have gotten to the point where I am a little more selfish with my work-out time and my eating habits. I don't let him talk me out of it!!
Well, better get back to work:) Ta-ta til next time!

Whew...it has been a while since I have been on here, but it is not because I am slacking! It's mainly because I am working a lot and trying to squeeze in exercise every day! It's very tiring!!
Well, I joined the Las Vegas Athletic Club and so far I love it! One of my good girlfriends convinced me to join after telling me that she goes to spin class on Wednesday and Friday mornings. I decided to try it by myself first, so I wouldn't make a fool of myself in front her, and boy did I hurt afterwards! But after doing it gain a few more times I have found that I love it! It's so invigorating and motivating! And you can push yourself as much or as little as you want! I am now trying to do it at least 3-4 times a week, depending on my schedule.
In addition to exercise, I have been trying to make a lot more meals at home now! Fresh fruits and vegetables are staple, along with chicken and fish. And now I have no problem telling my boyfriend that certain places and foods are not in my "diet." He is now adjusting more to my eating habits!
I really want to try and lose another 5-10lbs by the beginning of April, since I am going home to visit friends at that time. They have not seen me in over a year! Better watch out ladies:)

I know that it has been a while since my last blog and at that time I was ready to give up! But then something switched in me! I stopped giving in to everyone else's food suggestions and stuck to my own. I finally got the courage to tell my boyfriend "no" when he would suggest a place that I knew there wouldn't be any healthy options for me. I started cooking my side dishes. While others would have french fries or scalloped potatoes I was having brown rice and vegetables. Every day I would wake up and before even deciding what to do for the day I would work out!
Well, long story short I have lost over 10 lbs in the last 3 weeks. This is not starving myself or killing myself at the gym! I am doing 20-45min of intense kickboxing a day and eating anywhere from 1000-1200 calories. I am eating a lot of fish, chicken , whole grains and vegetables! I am loving the fact that I am finally learning self-control! I was able to go to McDonalds and get a side salad with a filet-o-fish sandwich with no cheese! And I was satisfied!
Couldn't be happier right now! Sending love to all my supporters!!
