Change is good!

I grew up always the skinny kid...even had the nickname 'boney butt' when I was little. By no means have I ever been really overweight...maybe by 20 pounds but by all appearances I am still 'tall and slender'. I have been on a health quest since September of 2011. While I have been a member since 2009, I was never consistent with my Spark time or my healthy choices. I got a little too comfortable being tall and slender and hiding those extra pounds with my height being 5'9" was easy. Then ...
I grew up always the skinny kid...even had the nickname 'boney butt' when I was little. By no means have I ever been really overweight...maybe by 20 pounds but by all appearances I am still 'tall and slender'. I have been on a health quest since September of 2011. While I have been a member since 2009, I was never consistent with my Spark time or my healthy choices. I got a little too comfortable being tall and slender and hiding those extra pounds with my height being 5'9" was easy. Then one day I noticed I had quite the muffin top and thunder thighs as well as back fat. Seeing my mom and sister struggle all the time with their weight I decided to do something before it got out of hand. So I kicked it into gear and started getting active and being mindful of what I put into my body. I love bread, pasta and sweets so those are my struggles. Thankfully I enjoy exercise and with the help of this site, I have come to discover and love certain fruits and veggies; something I was not a fan of before. This is my journey and thanks for choosing to be a part of it.

Member Since: 11/6/2009

SparkPoints: 31,086

Fitness Minutes: 18,637

My Goals:
Eat healthy and be active every day...out of habit, not necessity.

My Program:
I am always changing what I'm doing. I have become a regular runner...which translates into at least 3 miles a few days a week and the occasional 5k or mudrun. I enjoy anything aerobic/dance oriented and tae bo. Boot camp is great but my knee cannot take all of the high impact jumping with squats and lunges. I love strength training and have done the Jamie Eason LiveFit trainer...am looking for another ST program currently. Oh, and I have several videos at home...I tend to get bored doing the same workout every day.

Staying positive and keeping the Faith.

Personal Information:
Originally from South Texas, now living just outside of Fort Worth. New area, new people, new experiences.

Other Information:
I love a good underdog story.

Crime dramas and reality tv are my pass-time guilty pleasures.

Off again, on again reformed junk food junky.

Thanks so much for your encouragement on my heart broken blog. I will keep processing my feelings. I will keep building my foundation, so it is strong for the next relationship.
