Hungry Haggis

I'm 35, live in Scotland with my husband and our 12 year old daughter. I'm in my finalyear of a Psychology degree (late bloomer), I'm currently menopausal thanks to a hysterectomy a couple of years ago (yes I realise that's too much information), I think I absorb food via osmosis and then store it in my hips for when it's needed... which it never is. I'm incurably exercise shy and my self confidence is in the toilet. I have the sense of humour of an 8-year-old-boy and I really look forward to ...

I talk a lot, but anything I say is done with my tongue planted firmly in my cheek... Which kind of makes me hard to understand.

Fitness Minutes: 5,366

My Goals:
I want to be fit and healthy.

I want to look in the mirror and not panic that a fat stranger is in the house.

I'd like to join a cardio class and not be the most out of shape person in the room.

I want to run a 5k this year. COMPLETED JUNE 2011

I want to run a 10k this year. COMPLETED MAY 2011

I want to stay motivated to maintain a healthy lifestyle so that my family benefit from healthy eating as much as me.

I don't want this to be another fad that fizzles out the minute my stress levels rise.

My Program:
Follow a diet of 1,200 calories.

Eat vegetables and/or fruit with every meal.

Eat only wholemeal versions of carbohydrates.

Drink at least 2 litres of water a day, cut out all caffeine and alcohol.

Introduce exercise into my daily routine.



Personal Information:
My name's Heather and I have the most ridiculously perfect family on the planet. My husband and I have been together 18 years and he's still my knight in shining armour. Our 11 year old daughter is the perfect child. She's never misbehaved and is kind to a fault. My best friend is who I want to be when I grow up. I'm an exceptionally blessed human being.

Thanks so much for your kind words! I've had many ups and downs over the years, and I do my best to keep on going. That's why I love SparkPeople! Keeps me motivated with all the positive people.

Good to see you back on here again! You've done brilliantly with Lighterlife - maybe Spark can help you the rest of the way?!

And as for exercise, well, we have a couple of mountains to climb this year, don't we?!

My friends that I did the Thames Path Challenge with have decided that my challenge this year is to do the Three Peaks (just not in 24 hours like the challenge!). So, we can do Snowdon at Easter, Ben Nevis in August and Scafell Pike on a long weekend at some point!! What do you think?!

:o)

I am so glad you are back!!! I was away for most of last year and it wasn't a great year for me. A perfect reason to get back to Spark, right? Let's check in with each other regularly. I don't want you to slip away and I promise I will stick around this time too! emoticon emoticon
