Hi everyone. I am German girl currently living in the UK with my English husband and black lazy rescue cat Jenny.
I'm a freelance seamstress specialising in vintage inspired clothing that I either design myself or make from original patterns.
I am also a runner, walker, hiker and cyclist and enjoy being active outdoors.
I have given up diets an calorie counting and aim for healthy eating and giving my body what it needs plus the occasional treats. This works pretty well as my body rewards me with running faster and longer every week. I can't sit still anymore and therefore wont.

Member Since: 2/4/2011

Fitness Minutes: 4,648

My Goals:
Running a half marathon race in October 2011. I have conquered the distance in a training session with my husband the other week and feel now ready to race. In fact, I can't wait.
Goal time is under 2 hours. Watch this space!!!!


My Program:
I run A LOT!!! I try to aim for at least 5 times a week varying my runs from sprint sessions to short runs to long and slow and anything in the middle. It seems to work. I do not follow a particular plan. I listen to my body and when it wants to run fast I make sure it does. Sometimes it just doesn't want to run at all, then I go and take it for ice cream. I deserve it, my body deserves it. I love my body!!! It does great things. I also do strength training 3-4 times a week for 15-20 min.
I have not joined a gym and don't think I ever will again. I spend a lot of money on gyms in the past and never went. My gym is the great outdoors, a fitness mat and some free weights.



Personal Information:
28 years old
married to a wonderful husband (who is very fit...due to his job... so I need to keep up with him)
loves vintage clothing, vintage lifestyle
is a seamstress, making vintage inspired clothes (just in case you are interested in that sort of thing)
loves cats, travelling, movies, hiking, cooking and entertaining, enjoys life


Other Information:
Anything else you would like to tell people. Could include things like your favorite books or movies, a quote, anything.

    Congrats on taking the next step to reaching a healthier you by getting active with SparkPeople - it's a great community, wonderful resources and fantastic support.

    Please check out the SparkTeams - I think you will find a lot of others 'just like you' there. You can choose SparkTeams by age group, lifestyle or interests, geographic location or several other ways - some of the teams you might like include the Official 10-minute Daily Exercise Streak Challenge, Starting Over Weekly Mini-Challenge Team, 10k Steps A Day and Motivation & Positive Attitude Plan but there are so many to choose from, you can have a great time looking for the ones that seem to fit you best! In fact, I suggest joining more than one group, post your intro there and write blogs as often as you can - you will find tons of friends and support that way, I promise!!

    In my experience, SparkPeople is like a emoticon in some ways - it's lots of fun and easy to make friends because we're all in this together. I like the way a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE is emphasized instead of a 'quick fix wonder diet' so it's good for people wanting to lose weight, maintain a previous loss, get healthier, improve fitness and many other goals - it's about waaaaaay more than 'just' losing weight so you have definitely come to the right place!

    If you ever need any help using features of the site, there are tutorial videos under the HELP section that can show you how to use the features of the site. You can also find them on the START page and several other places on the site.

    If you haven't already discovered The Spark book and/or the SparkDiet linked at the bottom of the START page, check them out - the program is simple but extremely effective. There is a TON of information on this site - so much it might even seem overwhelming but fortunately we don't have to 'digest' everything at once! The FastBreak program is a good way to start.

    emoticon

    Another nice thing about SparkPeople is that we have permission to be human - we don't have to change everything at once or be in a hurry to reach our goals. Take a few baby steps and then a few more and before you know it, you'll have completed a long journey - I hope you enjoy this community as much as I do - it teaches us how to make positive lifetime changes because that's the only thing that will work over time!

    Change is here in 2011.

    Not only are your eating habits going to change, your LIFE is going to change.
    Your self esteem is going to go up. You will be more motivated and your numbers are going to go down, down, down.
