A new me

2013- I have been on spark two years now, I was a pound away from my goal weight of 135 and than somehow managed to gain 9 pounds and now im at 145. After the initial joy at the loss, the real learning came when I had to figure out how to KEEP it off. I refuse to go backwards so I am moving forward...and this year I WILL get to my goal. And I WILL keep it off. That means no more "relaxing" my good habits, it's a lifestyle change nothing less. I have the tools, I know the what I need to do. I ...

Goals for 2013:

This is the year I turn 40! I want to be my best yet! There is no reason I cannot be my happiest, healthiest self and show that getting older doesn't have to be a scary unhappy event. I want to use this as an opportunity to challenge my self.

I am still shooting for my goal of 135 but along the way I want to FEEL my best, aswell as look it. This means, exercise- even when I don't want to. Eating whole foods. Eating mindfully. Stopping myself BEFORE I reach for the donut and imagining how yucky I'll feel AFTER I eat it. Eating balanced, drinking my Matcha tea, eating my greens and limiting anything processed. Using all the tools I have....

I also want to take better care of myself this year. More. Massages, more spa days. More yoga and stretching. My job wears my body out and I know I need to honor that better. I want to work on ways to get more natural energy and use that to stay clean, tidy and organized so I can keep a sense of calm and not

My Program:
My job hours are so chaotic I cannot make an exact schedule, BUT I can commit to getting to the gym whenever there is a chance. I can commit to walking every day I don't work with my boys. I can commit to doing workouts at home after my kids are asleep. My focus is on Zumba, running, pilates and yoga.

Personal Information:
I am a 39 year old hairdresser living in Oregon. I have been married to my husband for eight years and have two precious boys ages three and five. One way to describe me is I almost never get bored and I find life exciting! I love to read and will research whatever I'm currently interested in
for hours! I am a true "foodie" who enjoys cooking and using food as medicine. I shoot for a diet of whole foods and REAL food. I am interested in traveling, and personal growth of ALL types...constantly looking for easy to be a better me

Thanks for your comments on my page. I am in this struggle right along with you. I too wish I didn't care so much about food. I KNOW there are people in the world, to whom food is not that important. But to me, food is way too important. I think about breakfast when I get up in the morning, then all day I am anticipating my next meal. If I'm eating a snack, I know how much I have and if I set it aside somewhere and lose track of it, I KNOW I have more to eat and don't rest until I find the rest of it sitting on the kitchen counter or table somewhere. You are so right--none of us are alone in this struggle. I wonder if we should even think of it as deprivation, giving up those treats every day. You know there are movie and TV stars out there, who have to eat wisely every day. Are you like me....do you watch TV shows and see these skinny women eating things that you can't eat and think to yourself, "Bet they don't eat that stuff in REAL life." Because you know in order to maintain their impossibly tiny size, they can't eat anything--hardly! And I bet they don't consider it deprivation. I wonder if we got to that point, where we looked at our way of eating as normal and not as constantly being deprived of this treat or that one, it might get easier? That would be nice.
