"If you're tired of starting over, STOP giving up."

A friend told me that quote after reading a blog I wrote about how I had been feeling like I always seem to be starting over and never really reaching my goals. The quote stuck with me. YES, I really needed to stop giving up on myself and start believe I can acheive this. I know I have the determination, drive and passion so no more excuses. Make it happen. I know I'm worth it! ~~~~~~~~~~~~

A little background..... My name is Jennifer and I live in sunny Florida (home of the puffy white clouds). I'm originally from Illinios (suburb of Chicago) but I have lived here for the last 16 years and I LOVE love LOVE it here! I have been with my husband Joe for 19 years and we have three amazing children ages 17, 13 and 6. I co-own a framing construction business with my husband and also work outside the home as an Office Manager for a construction company as well. I couldn't be happier with my life except for this weight issue. There is just too much of my life left to live and I don't plan on spending it like this. My goal is to shed 69.2 lbs. and go from 204.2 lbs. to 135 lbs. I am so glad for the continual support of SparkPeople and all the people who make it an amazing place to reach beyond yourself and find your dreams.

To all my Spark Friends...Join me on this journey, let's motivate & inspire each other. Add me, read my blogs, get to know me and I promise I will support you in return. We are SparkBuddies for life! This is OUR time, our year and most importantly our lives we are changing from this point on. It's ok even if you fall....just get back up ....you may fall 7 times but as long as you get up 8 that's all that matters. May we all kick a little booty during the process! We can rock this! :)

My Program:
DIET:
I am currently trying a clean eating diet of less processed foods and more plant based fruits & vegetables.

EXERCISE:
I aim for 5 days every week minimum. I run 4 times a week and bike ride another day. Working on strength training as I have planned on joining a local bootcamp class. I belong to a local runners group and sign up for many races including completing my first half marathon on 7/24/13. I have now run 4 half marathons and working on improving my PR time.

I also try to find things to do with my kids. We bike ride, play flag football, tag etc.

Personal Information:
I am.... scratch that... WAS a hibitual yo-yo dieter but I see things in myself this time around that I've never seen before. Who knew that I had this in me. Not givin' up this time a round. No way! It's just not an option. Who's with me????

Other Information:

you'll end up someplace else."

It felt pretty good to notice the difference in the legs and the form. The feeling of craziness it great, but at only a mile it's kinda like cheating with running only 10 minutes in the cold. I'm cool (no pun intended) with just a mile though. It was just more of a status check to see how I was running. It's going to be around zero again tonight or a little below so I'll do another mile again. The thing that sucked was I was over dressed. Two sweatshirts and a jacket are too much for me. That's just how I came home before the run so I just threw on the fleece mask and left. I'll forgo the jacket tonight for sure.
