Working to change my attitudes about exercise, eating, and my outlook on life in general. I have become a firm believer that "thoughts become things"

Member Since: 1/8/2007

Fitness Minutes: 35,710

My Goals:
Ultimate Goal:
Complete half marathon on 11/3/12 in 2 hrs. 10 min.
Weigh 145 lbs by 1/1/2013

Short-term Weight Goals:
Weigh 160 by 10/6/12

Weigh 150 by 12/15/12

My Program:
How I'll get there - food:
Stay within 1200-1550 calorie range 6 of 7 days/week
(which means track calorie intake at least 6x/week)
Eat at least one serving of fruits/veggies each day

How I'll get there - exercise:
(track every workout on SparkPeople)
Follow Blue Mile training program, running at least 3x/week (T/W/F/Sa)
Long run EVERY Saturday
Swim 2x/week (M/W)
Bike 1x/week
Yoga 2x/week (M/R)
Pilates 2x/week (T/Su)
Take one day OFF and do nothing 1x/week!

Stretch 1x/day
Get up each hour during the workday
Drink at least 8 glasses water/day

Personal Information:
In the past 5 years, I've changed jobs twice, gotten married, moved twice, adopted 2 dogs, bought a house, bought a car, and well, that isn't the least of it! I'm learning that life is always changing - you have to make time for what's important. I enjoy being active, exercising, shopping, wine, friends, and I love SparkPeople! I completed my first sprint triathlon this year, too!

Other Information:
Favorite Quotes:

"You get credit for what you finish, not for what you start."

"Think highly of yourself because the world takes you at your own estimate."

"Pain is temporary. Pride is forever."
