Law Student extraordinaire - but how do you develop balance and a healthy lifestyle when your focus is on your grades? Apparently with great difficulty! Law school has been tough on my body, but with one year left and a solid career ahead, I'm spending this summer and the coming school year to refocus.

Member Since: 4/8/2008

Fitness Minutes: 6,220

My Goals:
Summer Goal: Get back on the Spark track! Journal my nutrition and exercise daily.
Weight Goal: 195 by end of May
Fitness Goal: Get to a trainer by the end of May

My Program:
Nutrition: I try to be mindful of what, when and how much I eat. This means being aware of how many calories something is (for example, I had no idea that a Medium Frappucino from Starbucks has as many calories as a Small Banana Split Blizzard from Dairy Queen - over 400!!!). It also means thinking before I eat - am I hungry? why am I eating this? do I need a second helping? It also means allowing myself to splurge on the treats I like once in a while.

Fitness: Workout at least 3 times a week at the gym. Two of those days include about 30-45 minutes of weights. Each day has a minimum of 30 mins of cardio. I also try to workout once on the weekend. My main goal is to walk as much as possible: to work, to get groceries, to run errands.

Spirit: I work daily to remind myself that I deserve to be happy. I am trying to overcome self-doubt and depression with positive self-talk, a positive attitude and mindfulness. Of all the aspects of my program, this one is the hardest!

Personal Information:
My Top 10 Reasons to Lose Weight:
1) I want... to be the boss! I will not be a slave to bad habits or reflex!
2) I want... to run!
3) I want... to fit my skinny jeans! And maybe turn them into my fat jeans...
4) I want... to live a long long life - it's going to be a good one, I know it!
5) I want... to be my own inspiration!
6) I want... to be able to wear the clothes I love! (Being a slave to fashion is pretty hard when the fashions don't fit)
7) I want... to see what my husband sees.
8) I want... to love myself as much as I love other important people in my life.
9) I want... to say YES to a bikini!
10) I want... to show the world that I am DYNAMITE!

    Happy Birthday to You!!

    Born Feb. 10, you may have to grow out of a profound insecurity in order to grow into the confident and able individual the stars have fashioned on this date. Once you do, however, you can enjoy a long and fruitful career -- and the kind of success in your personal relationships that is forbidden one who remains under the control of the kind of self-doubt from which you are likely to suffer when young. The world can be your oyster, but you have to be brave enough to give it a try and develop a taste for it, surely.

    Once you come into your own, you can make a name for yourself that will be long-remembered and much admired. What is most remarkable, however, is that you will ultimately use the leverage your success affords you to help others, teach others, and work tirelessly for others.

    Hope your day was wonderful!
