BANANAFANNAH is a SparkPeople Motivator!
Hello my lovely Sparkies! My name is Nicole and I'm 28.
I joined SparkPeople because I want to turn my life around. I am now on my way to becoming a new, healthier me. It may have taken a couple tries, but I finally am BEYOND READY. All I can do is take it a day at a time and look forward to success :) I know I'll have roadblocks, but I just have to tell myself that nothing will stop me.
I don't want to be skinny (well.. it would be nice! lol), I just want to be happy. :)
Good luck to everyone in reaching their goals!
Learn the "Thriller" dance and manage to pull it off without all of the "jiggle".
Buy a super awesome pair of skinny jeans and feel comfortable in them.
Climb steps without feeling like death when I get to the top.
Eat more fruit.
Stop being in such a rush and eat some darn BREAKFAST in the morning!
BIKE, HIKE and just BE OUTDOORS! I definitely have to step it up when it comes to being active outdoors.
Ultimate Goal/Reward: No idea. Crazy right?! Lol. I just want to live!

Right now, my goal is to log at least an hour of fitness, 4 days a week. My current routine includes 15-20 minutes of warmup cardio, followed by a lifting routine (Ice Cream Fitness), finished with another 15-20 minutes of cardio. I do my lifting routine Mon, Wed, Friday and C25K + accessory work Tues, Thurs, Friday.
When I stick to this, and eat sensibly, it works! Surprise right? Haha.
I hope to add more outside activities eventually, but for now it's all about routine routine routine. I've got to STICK WITH IT!
I live in Northeast PA and work full time for a Law Enforcement Agency.
I am a fun-loving, outgoing girl who just wants to get healthy! I want to be that fit healthy girl I feel like I can be!
I'm always looking forward to meeting new people on Spark - So if you're browsing through, go ahead and add me!

Happy Belated Birthday, DONE GIRL
The Aries woman wanted to be like her Dad, so she loves to be outdoors. She probably was a "Tomboy" growing up but in most cases she didn't get the attention from her Dad that she wanted. So as an adult she can be much to overbearing for many men. She gets along with Gemini, Leo, Sagittarius, Libra and Aquarius. She needs to avoid Scorpio, because he MUST control any relationship he is in and he will not allow her to be in charge, so even though she thinks he is mysterious and she loves to "get the bad boy", she won't end up well with him. She often works in Psychology since she thinks she knows all the answers that others need, but is amazed when people aren't interested in taking her advice. She is a natural athlete and her weight issue is all of her own doing as she can be the leader of the gym.
In Aries, the Sun is highly action oriented. You like to do your thing, and you are opinionated and direct in doing it. Your Aries personality constantly wants to charge ahead, and insists on being the one who organizes, rather than ever allowing yourself to be led or organized by others. You have a hard time recognizing any point of view except your own. Highly action oriented, when an idea strikes you, you are off quickly to carry it out. Yet you are not so good in seeing projects through to a conclusion. Follow-up and finish work are not matters that suit your style. You constantly need new goals, new projects, and new challenges.
You are a quick learner and a self-starter; enthusiastic and curious. The main challenge for an Aries Sun sign native is the control of impulses. You must avoid scattering forces, for if you can learn to think before taking action, your energetic nature will enable you to do much. Natural impulsiveness and inability to listen to the advice of others sometimes involves you in difficulties. To succeed, you must learn to think everything through carefully before you proceed. Patience and the ability to plan are areas in which you may have to apply extra effort. You must reflect on the total effect of your actions to grow and progress in life.
You may have a sharp temper and a quick fuse as Aries is ruled by Mars, the planet associated with war and combat. Fortunately, you get over anger as quickly as it comes, and you never hold a grudge. You are neither devious nor subtle in your actions. Many Aries Sun natives are down right blunt. Only with concentration and attention can you ever acquire much diplomacy and tact.
With your natural Aries inclinations, you have a true adventurer's or pioneer's spirit; a longing for independence and a tendency to fancy yourself as a free soul. Born to lead, but not born to handle the mundane responsibility or bureaucratic red tape. When faced with complex details, you become very frustrated. Fully matured, your Aries spirit aspires to a gallant "never say die" attitude, and a willingness to take advantage of each new opportunity that comes along.
