Here's To Health!

Hi, everyone. I am a blues singer from Boston, MA, and I'm grateful I get to do what I love...and be paid for it to boot! Music is my religion and the center of my world. It keeps me going on good days, bad days and in between. I can't imagine my life without it. I'm all about finding the right balance of good food, exercise, sleep, wellness and peace. I am here on SparkPeople so that I have a support system in place to help me focus on and achieve my goals, get encouragement, connect with ...

Fitness Minutes: 32,834

My Goals:
What I'm working toward now:

Getting into the "healthy" weight range for my height (I'm 5'3" so it's between 104-141 lbs).





My Program:
1. 300 or more mins. of exercise/week. Combo of strength training & cardio. Strength train 2-3 days/week; moderate-high intensity cardio at least 3 days/week.

2. Eat real food & choose the healthy route most of the time. Live the 80-20 rule: "Because while you should always aim to eat healthy most of the time, aiming for about 80% of the time gives you that wiggle room every sane person needs to still enjoy themselves."

3. Check in to SparkPeople each day & blog re: how things are going. This helps me stay accountable & get the encouragement I need.



Personal Information:
I'm a blues singer from Cambridge, MA. I am very lucky to be able to pursue my passion in life (music). I love to bike and I use my bike as my primary mode of transport. I enjoy good food/wine as well as cooking for friends and family. I believe in the law of attraction and that positivity attracts positive results. I consider myself a student in the school of life and enjoy learning something new each day.

Hiya,
I'm doing a 30 day plank challenge and recruiting partners. I'm only on Day 4, so plenty of time for us to kick ass on it together.
You can find it at 30dayfitnesschallenges.com

I hear you. I was thinking about a similar goal for when school starts. I can sit for hours and do homework because it literally takes 3-6 hour stretches to get anything of significance done most days, so one of my goals for the semester is to make sure I get up every hour and move around for a little bit. It also helps wake your mind up to get all the blood circulating again.

Romanian dead lifts were my favorite too for awhile. I found that I couldn't progress to as heavy a weight as I could with the classic dead lift, and that's become more important to me lately. The Romanian lift does just feel good to me though.
