I've always had such a love/hate relationship with my body. I dread talking or even thinking about my weight in a negative light, feeling like I'm buckling to societal pressure or just avoiding it because I feel like being a bigger girl is a large part of who I am. Now I just want to be healthy and I'm well on my way to it!

Member Since: 1/2/2010

Fitness Minutes: 535

My Goals:
Losing weight is important, but the amount of pounds I lose is negotiable. There's no magic number for me, I just want to feel healthy and get more toned and in shape.

I'd like to comfortably fit into clothes that I didn't have to buy @ a plus size store. .

I'd like to be able to reach my toes.

I'd like to run a 5K.

My Program:
Cardio 6-7 Days a week.

Strength training every other day and stretching everyday is a must.

Healthy common sense eating. Little to no sugar (maybe a bit of dark chocolate every now and then, but only a serving size worth). Nothing fried, greasy, fatty or over-processed. Veggies, fruits, legumes, whole grains. I'm a vegetarian, so this is pretty much my diet anyhow.

Personal Information:
I've been a bigger girl my whole life and I'm ready to make a change. My motivation is my family.

I recently met the love of my life and with a wedding and kids on the horizon, I want to be able to keep up with my loved ones and live to see my grandkids!

I live in MPLS, work out at the YWCA, am a FT grad student, a barista, an organizer, and volunteer @ my community library. Busy busy busy is how I like it.

Other Information:
For me, it's about how I FEEL and my health, rather than accepting socially constructed images of beauty. I just want to be confident, healthy, and strong.

    ¸´¸.•´¸.•*¨)¸¸.•´ ..•-~'¸.•*¨) Spark has a lot of great tools, and you will learn which ones work best for you. The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. I’ve been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success! emoticon emoticon ¸.•´ (¸.•´ ♥¸.•´¸¸.• (¸.•´ (¸.•*¨ (¸.¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.
