2014 - A Year of Ups & Downs

Updated 10/30/2014

This year I hoped for a year of peace, a year to settle in to new lifestyles and relationships - but I also hoped to return to a physically healthier me, the me that I was in 2012.

Once again, I am re-setting my goals. I will always be the person who lost almost 140 lbs within approximately 1.5 years. I will also be the person that gained back all of those pounds (and more) through a series of bad choices, compounded by too many hours of work and far ...

This year I hoped for a year of peace, a year to settle in to new lifestyles and relationships - but I also hoped to return to a physically healthier me, the me that I was in 2012.

Once again, I am re-setting my goals. I will always be the person who lost almost 140 lbs within approximately 1.5 years. I will also be the person that gained back all of those pounds (and more) through a series of bad choices, compounded by too many hours of work and far too few hours of exercise and sleep. Loss of a family member with the resulting comfort eating was a huge factor in 2013. This year, taking on the full-time care of my mom has put a crimp into the time and energy that I have to exercise and focus on healthy eating.

Here are the plans I have for the rest of this year:

1. Restart my walking and strength training routines.

2. Train to do the LR half marathon in March 2015.

3. Focus on my Scottie every moment that I can.

4. Find a better balance between work, family and my own well-being.

Member Since: 6/11/2010

SparkPoints: 33,473

Fitness Minutes: 26,930

My Goals:
Get back into my ST routine

Be a group leader at the runners clinic this year

Begin training for my first full marathon

Get back into a good eating groove

Start cooking more our meals and having the leftovers for lunches.

My Program:
Drink at least 8 glasses of water daily

Walk/run at least 5 days per week

Strength training 1 or 2 days per week

Personal Information:
I am 47 years old.

I am married to a wonderful man since Aug. 10, 2013. Our only "kids" are our pets.

I work in the IT department of a large hospital chain.

My fitness journey:
At the beginning of 2010, I weighed 356. My doctor put me on Metformin because my A1C was high, then I had to have surgery to remove my gallbladder. I actually lost 26 lbs without even trying - I think because of the new medication and changes in my digestive process after the gallbladder removal.

At that point, I decided to capitalize on the unexpected weight loss and see if a little effort could help me lose even more. On June 11, 2010, I joined SparkPeople to help me track my food and my exercise.

At the end of 2012, I was at my lowest weight - exercising regularly, eating right most of the time. At that point, a major work project started taking over my life and I started my online dating journey. Diet and exercise kinda fell by the wayside for many months -

Other Information:
I like to read, watch movies and TV, play hidden object computer games and EAT!

One of my favorite movies is "The Princess Bride".

I very much enjoy British humor, especially Monty Python.

I love dogs and cats and critters of all kinds.

Here's to us.
Here's to ordering a salad when you really want a burger.
Here's to making an ass out of yourself in combat cardio class.
Here's to drinking more water than you thought was possible.
Here's to 5 more minutes on the elliptical.
Here's to working out twice as much as your skinny friend.
Here's to saying see you later to the old you
& falling in love with the new, improved, healthier you,
The you that you really are,
The you that you are becoming.
Here's to looking in the mirror or jumping on the scale
Seeing no changes
BUT
Putting on your Nike's & hitting the gym anyways.
Here's to carrots & shin splints & sweatshirts & perseverance
& sore muscles & stinky socks & 7am Yoga class
&falling down & getting back up.
And here's to doing it all again tomorrow.
- - Unknown - -

Here's to a fearless February!
I'm rooting for YOU:)
Stay Positive,

Jes
