In case you are wondering why I picked the nickname OMsome, my real name is Olga M. and I wanted my nickname to sound like awesome, to motivate myself. I joined Spark People 4 years ago, this website helped me reaching my goal for the year 2007.
However, I am now back to same point, actually at much much lower point. Last 2 years were very stressful with lots of changes in my life: Married, unplanned move, lost family members, finished my Ph.D. and more ... As a consequence I did not only gained weight , my self-esteem and mental health also suffered with it.
After a long period of denial about my situation, I am currently undergoing treatment for my depression.
It is time to care of my physical health too.

Maximum weight in 2011: 190 lbs, 86 kgs :-(

Re-starting my SP life!

My Goals:
To regain my mental and physical health by taking care of my body and mind.

My first goal is to get back to a healthy BMI. After reaching that goal I am planning to move forward and tune my body to my dream body. Nonetheless, I will be happy just to achieve the first goal.

My Program:
My daily challenge:

- Plan my meals and workouts.

- Read 1 article about self-motivation or self-esteem.

My weekly challenge:

- Write down a work plan with goals I want to achieve for this week.
- Weight and measure.
- Ask for help at least to 1 person.
- Do something for someone else.
- Look back, reward good behavior, see what I have to improve.
- Relax, let it go but do not give in.

My weekly cardio workout:

- Zumba : Mondays, Fridays; 30 to 50 minues sessions

- Jogging: Tuesdays, Thrusdays and Saturdays; 40 to 50 minutes. Goal: run 5 miles without stopping by the end of 2011.

- Wednesdays: Hip hop and kickboxing; 30 minutes each.

My weekly strength training:

    I absolutely loved your blog and decided I needed a friend like you. I love the beaming smile on your face at your latest progress. Way to go!

    I see you are on the I Need Sleep team. How is that coming along? You do need restful sleep to be healthy on a lot of levels. I've saved some of SparkPeople's experts articles on how to get better sleep on my SparkPage. Check out my blog about Sleep Hygiene.

    Let me know if there is any way I can help.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! I like your image of thinking about push-ups as the "monsters in the closet"!
