getting stoked for SUP!

I am so proud of myself for killing that intermediate flow class. All that anxiety was for nothing.

Hi Lovely Friends!

I am resetting my life.

In 2012 I was 207lbs & I had the realization that I needed to make a change.I found Spark & I tracked, ate within my ranges, made it priority to work out harder than ever and 50lbs came off over a year span. I maintained for a couple years & a bit but then in 2015/2016 I got cocky.I thought that while I was slowly drifting back into old habits & not gaining substantially that I was forward to now,2 & a bit years later & I've let myself get back up to 200lbs.

I have achieved so many other life goals during that time and am so proud of myself. However,I can thank that time for introducing me to things I never thought in a million years I could do. I am a runner,a cyclist, a boot camper, a yogi and have found peace through meditation. I have explored and learned so much about my body and how it works physically,mentally and nutritionally. I have a great basis now to propel my new direction into better overall health & fitness.

My Goals:
To be the happiest & healthiest I can be.

My Program:
Right now just trying to be active/workout consistently as well as eat smaller well balanced portions and for me eating clean gluten free works best (how I lost 50lbs before).
**I have been experimenting with iifym (macros) since beginning of 2017 with little success due to inconsistency. Also joined a beginners gym/lifting program (Feb 2018) with the same macro ladies group so we'll just see where this goes....trying to find the consistency I had back in 2012-2014 is my main goal.

    Hey there Kira.
    Thank you for your message - I know how easy it is to lose focus! Tracking is one of those healthy habits that keep us on track. I'm trying to get back to it too.
    Let's have a great 2018 and keep doing our best each & every day.
    Peace xo

    Thanks Kira for your kind comment on my blog 'Whole30 - Day 2'. Yes, it's proving to be a bit of a challenge to get used to it but I feel it's necessary. Hunger was msotly in check yesterday so I hope it stays the same.
    Have a great weekend & keep sparking!

    I hate the thought of counting my whole life. However, that being said, I might rather keep track of one number instead of what I'm counting now. It sounds like their point system is much improved from when I tried it previously... I think, about 15 years ago, haha!

    Hey! Thanks for the protein recommendations! Also, I feel the same way deep down about the keto diet. It works for a lot of people so I've been tempted, but I've always said do what works for the long haul. I know it would be temporary, and then my results might be as well. If I tried it, I'd have to learn how to safely reverse out of it. I'm currently watching my macros and each day making changes when I can to get back to a better balance. Which is part of the reason why I'm giving protein powder a go because a huge issue with meeting my macros before was the meat. I like it, but easily get tired of so much of it. I like that you mentioned the reverse macros. I tried that before and it worked well when I was going to the gym.
