My name is Ally (or Elphy). I'm 25 and live in Central New York with my fiance, Dan.

I've struggled most of my life with my weight, consciously and subconsciously. I've made some good and some very bad decisions over the past years on how to lose weight. I thought in order to be attractive I needed to be skin and bones, now I realize a woman who is fit and healthy is much more attractive.

I no longer desire for my fitness activities to cause my weight to go down. I want to see the numbers go down because I know that will mean less body fat. My main goal changes often, but currently I want to get a lower body fat percentage and start to see some more defined muscle.

February 2012: My current aspiration is to be a Spartan!
My fiance, my best friend, and I created a team for the Spartan Sprint in June and all of us are training in our own ways to become Spartans.

June 2012: We are Spartans! Completed our first Spartan Sprint this month and it was awesome! The hardest and greatest thing I've ever done. We finished in 2 hours and 44 minutes. I was totally dragging and dying. New goal: Finish the Sprint next year in under 2 hours! Training begins immediately!

Member Since: 8/9/2011

Fitness Minutes: 8,953

My Goals:
My goal now to get under 130lbs and maintain it. My weight lately likes to hover between 130-135. I'd like to see it hover in the 120's. =-P I want to see more lean muscle on my body and start seeing more definition.

I'm 5'2 so I think that would be a good range. I dont want to do any extreme dieting, I just want to be fit and healthy. =-D

My Program:
Drinking lots and lots of water, less soda, being more active/practicing yoga, and watching what I eat.

Now the boy wants to get in shape too! So we'll be doing some videos and running together.

Im currently doing a lot of the Supreme 90 Day videos. I start a month of crossfit on July 9th, wish me luck, Im scared!

Personal Information:
So my name is Ally, I'm also known to go by Elphy (which is my main character name in any video game I play). I'm 25 living in central NY with my fiance, Dan.
We are getting married in the fall of 2013!

Other Information:
I'm a geek. I used to play a ton of World of Warcraft but have recently unsubscribed and am currently playing Tera online! and I love it!

    Thanks for the comment on my blog! In addition to my regular training, my parents have a farm that has some major hills, so I will be doing some practicing there. Running the hills, carrying a log, climbing hay bales, and whatever else I can mimic from the course. Not the electricity though. I will only need to do that once!

    You'll have to wait til September now, the Warrior Dash in London has been cancelled! I'm so gutted! I don't know why yet though.

    I think I'd still like the controller better lol

    My only fear with starting to play another MMO is getting so addicted to it that it'll interfere with my workouts. I was so addicted to WoW and it helped me gain a lot of weight and lose a lot of sleep. So for now I'll say I probably won't be playing Tera at all :(

    Hey thanks for telling me about Tera! I used to play WoW and a small part of me misses it, but what they've done to the game makes it suck now (in my opinion.) I was trying the Tera beta out tonight and I kind of like it. I think it would be much nicer to play with a controller instead of the keyboard though.
