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 ...

Current Status:
BOSTONBLUESGIRL proud of myself that I snuck in a 30 min. strength training session at lunch because I have a concert I have to perform at tonight. I could have easily blown it off and done nothing, but I did it.

SparkPoints: 14,149

Fitness Minutes: 32,393

My Goals:
July 2014 Goals:

1) Complete the 35 Days Around the Charles Fitness Challenge (17 stamps on my fitness card by August 3, 2014)

2) Consistent strength training (3x/week). (Ongoing July 2014)



My Program:
1. Strength training (at least 120 mins/week)

2. Cardio/interval training, moderate-high intensity (at least 180 mins/week)

3. 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."

4. Read inspirational stories from other Spark members to stay motivated.

5. Blog about how my health/fitness journey is going.



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.

You are emoticon !! emoticon Thanks so much for that sweet comment! I needed that! I am too hard on myself sometimes even more so now because I use to work out 6 days a week, sometimes a back to back class/workout. I'm find it hard to do these days..even just 4 days. I really don't know what's wrong with me. I think I'm just tired of myself. I need to work on my own self love. :-) thanks again! emoticon

yeah! I love them on a good day! That and squats are my fave. Probably why I hurt my back. I went too heavy when I shouldn't have. But oh well! I am feeling better now and just trying not to overdo it and listen to my body. :)

Definitely! Stomach issues are the worst and really screw up your plans.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Hoping the 2 weeks of antibiotics does the trick. My own fault for waiting so long, kept thinking it was just allergies!
Have a great weekend!
