JAMIRBLAZE's SparkPage

Professional in my late 20's who once weighed over 250lbs at the end of high school and am now at my goal weight of 140lbs. I wish that I could say that there has been a slow steady decline, but it's taken a decade or more to take it off. Lost 40lbs without really trying in college, and then really started to try to get healthy in graduate school in 2007. Some ups and downs since then, but I've been committed to steady, slow loss since 2012, and have made some real lifestyle and mindset ...

SparkPoints: 52,632

Fitness Minutes: 28,746

My Goals:
Maintenance within 5lbs +/- of 140lbs.

Fitness Goals
-Sub-25 minute 5k
-Complete half marathon (hopefully sub 2:45)
-ST two times per week
-Try new things

My Program:
Run 3 times per week, ST two times per week and HIIT and walks thrown in to round it out.

I cook and plan all of my meals during the weekends, so not wanting to cook/laziness is never a factor in making a bad choice. Also, I make foods that I like to eat (I'm a bit of a foodie) which makes it easier to chose what I have at home over a greasy drive-thru disaster.

Personal Information:
I'm a native Floridian and reside in central Florida though I did a three winter stint in Chicago. Miami grad - go 'Canes, - knitter, football and hockey fan, cook/baker.

Thanks for the advice on the HIIT YouTube channel! I'm still sore from yesterday's workout and need to keep at it, and it's good to know that it worked for you! It worked for me a few years back but it can be hard for me to stick with because, ugh...burpees suck! :)

Thanks for your comments on my half training (or lack thereof). I went ahead and bit the bullet and made an appointment--the earliest is the end of the week, so there'll be time to give it a chance to get better from 'home' treatment'. I've rehabbed other knee injuries before, but this is my 'good knee' and it took me by surprise. Will have to look into the KT tape--thanks! Have a good weekend ;-).
