I don't update my main page or blogs as much as I should... But I still Spark mostly every day! Sparkpeople literally changed my life. My past is below this but these days I am living a healthy lifestyle with the help of Spark & exercising like a mofo... because I simply love it. I Bodyrock/HIIT/WarriorZ... those sort of things. I'd bodybuild if I had the free time but I don't. I work a lot, so fit in my fitness where and as often as I can! :)
Thanks for reading and stopping by my page!!

Determination is set...

I used to be slim and fit, growing up. I hit 18 and left school, got a car and discovered freedom, all of a sudden I didn't have any physical activity whatsoever in my life. I always ate what i wanted and when i wanted, and i didn't stop this habit. I piled on the weight and didn't even realise what I was doing. I didn't even realise i wasn't 'me' any more. By the time I was 22, i had been over 250lbs. I joined Spark in September 2009, whilst i was still 22. Since then, i haven't looked back!! I have remebered how much I love exercise and sports, and have been eating for my body, not for the taste of junk!!!

A year down the line I have reached my second goal weight here at Spark of 160lbs. I have reached a dress size I never thought i would ever see again. And I don't hide from cameras anymore!!

I got married on 25th September 2010, I had a while out of Spark, half Sparking and half doing what i wanted - now it's time to get back and have a fit and healthy married life, and Sparkling along the way!!

My Goals:
I finally reached my ultimate goal of 138lbs after many years of hard work, sweat, blood (or not so much blood ha) and tears... It took like 2 years to go between the 140s and 130s!!

To feel wonderful about myself, clothed or naked !

My Program:
I am eating how I should be and exercising atleast 3 times a week.

Tracking all of my foods and exercise.

I am having the odd treat and meals i enjoy but i am using my self CONTROL to know when to stop and know when enough is enough!!

Personal Information:
I'm one of the minority on SparkPeople from the UK! And the North West !

I love hardcore workouts.
I like to jump rope.
I love the challenge myself.

Other Information:
I never have the brainpower to think of things for this box... i like anything and everything really and am willing to try anything!

I am so laid back i'm horizontal.

    Hi Steph....Thank you so much for giving me such an insight on where I need to stand in this journey. Friends are (far in between) those we all once started with. I was just thinking to myself the other day...what happened? Then it hit me. Everyone moves on. If you can't beat them join them, and if you can't join them...BEAT EM at their own game. But this here is life, it's crazy, and I have to spark this thing someone with a filter system. I have to filter out the crazies and keep my eyes open on those who are going places in their journey. I know in time I will re-arrive at me.
    Thank you so much for commenting on my blog. Hugs!

    I played Ultimate - a sport using Frisbee disk. I usually get bruises when I don't catch the disk properly or when someone throws the disk at me at wrong place, wrong time, haha.

    Right now, I'm taking a break from any training, perhaps two weeks are enough.
