Well, Hello!

My story thus far... I was very active in my youth, played sports, was concerned about my weight in the way most silly high school girls are, but was actually pretty slim, just curvy. As the time old tale goes, I gained weight in college. Still not horrible, just a little more plump. I had been in retail all of my working years...the kind that keeps you running around all day.

Well, Hello!

My story thus far... I was very active in my youth, played sports, was concerned about my weight in the way most silly high school girls are, but was actually pretty slim, just curvy. As the time old tale goes, I gained weight in college. Still not horrible, just a little more plump. I had been in retail all of my working years...the kind that keeps you running around all day. I bounced around from 120-140 for several years until I took my most recent position as a customer service rep at a healthcare facility. I sit at a desk pretty much all day. I packed on the pounds and at my heaviest was 180. The day I was closer to 200 than 100 was my breaking point. I've used other programs, but have not had as much success or support as I have found on Spark.

I'm interested in all sorts of movies, books, art, travel, blah, blah, blah.
I went to school for fashion merchandising/design. I want to get back into that line of work. I need something more creative than what I'm doing currently. Also, something that does not keep me dealing directly with public. I've just about had my fill, haha. I live in a rural area, so changing jobs, let alone trying to start a career, is a challenge.

Glad you stopped by and I hope we can encourage each other on this crazy ride!

It's so addictive I know! I cannot wait for school to let up so I can start going more than 3 times a week. I'm so proud that you're getting so strong! I PR'd this month in Double Unders. I did a whole 11 at once! :)

I get the whole "burnt out" feeling. Mine often stems from lack of results, but having a lot of success can still wear on someone because obviously a lot of work has gone into it to get the results! I hate that I tire of doing something I really enjoy-- and I DO enjoy working out. But sometimes I just want to come home and climb into bed.

I don't want to feel like each workout is absolutely imperative to me losing weight. I don't want to feel like if I do a low-impact or non-cardio-based exercise and burn 200 calories instead of 600 that it wasn't worth the workout. These thoughts all lead to getting burnt out...

Then, of course, I feel so horribly guilty when I don't workout.

Jeez, I exhausted myself just thinking and typing all of that. Stupid body. Stupid stressed brain...

But yay for sport bras and GREASE! Uh... not greasy sport bras...

It was more the quality of my 30min "workout" not the quantity. I was embarrassed because all I did was stroll on the treadmill feeling fowl when I know I should have smartened up & just did it right. Ah well, next time!

I was JUST telling someone about Thrive today!i saw her on Jon Stewart talking about it and I was like YES that is it! When did we start glorifying busy and giving up ourselves?! SO true! That is what I aspire to - not perfection, but thriving and being the best ME I can be however suits ME best, not what society thinks. Woo HOO!

Thanks for the blog love-- on BOTH of them! I laughed out loud on your "Treat" comment. I know, "holy moly" is pretty accurate!

Glad you got the Grease reference! WOO!
