I am so proud of myself for killing that intermediate flow class. All that anxiety was for nothing.
Hi Lovely Friends!
In 2012 I was 207lbs & I had the realization that I needed to make a change.I found Spark & I tracked, ate within my ranges, made it priority to work out harder than ever and 50lbs came off & have stayed off. Currently I am still not 100% at my "goal weight", but I have come to reflect on those years & I realized, although I lost that weight, I was the most stressed out,obsessive and unhappy while dieting.
I am resetting my life. I have achieved so many other life goals during that time and am so proud of myself. However,I can thank that time for introducing me to things I never thought in a million years I could do. I am a runner,a cyclist, a boot camper, a yogi and have found peace through meditation. I have explored and learned so much about my body and how it works physically,mentally and nutritionally. I have a great basis now to propel my new direction into better overall health. Life is too short to beat yourself up over calories and whether or not you worked out enough to burn said calories. If being active results in losing weight so be it but the scale won't control me anymore, my happiness will.
To be the happiest & healthiest I can be.
I ride my bike to work during the summer months.
I am currently practicing hot yoga in many disciplines & am working on inversions such as headstands & arm balances.I try to go as many times a week as my schedule permits and through that also developing a meditation practice.
I run outdoors whenever the opportunity arises (usually depends on the weather as I do live in Canada)
At the gym I like to do interval training on the treadmill, elliptical and some rowing then usually some strength training. Just to mix it up I also do home workouts like anything Jillian Michels and P90X.
+ any other physical activity like walking, swimming...
My name is Kira, I'm 5'3 & 32 years old.I live downtown Toronto, Canada with my boyfriend & fur babies.
I'm an Optician & work in a very busy downtown Optical store with dreams of having my own in the near future.

Oh, I definitely am concerned with being able to push myself if I'm doing the "home gym" thing. I'm taking pointers/advice from peeps, and am going to do it even when I don't want to so I can build a habit. Here's hoping!

We do need "me" time. I find that people spend so much time caring for everyone else, work, children, jobs, other friends and family, that they forget all about themselves. Then we just can't figure out why we're tired, and don't really feel that great. I think your confidence takes a hit because of it as well. We forget that we're just as important as everyone else!

I'm glad I'm not the only person who loves being alone! I'm determined to find my motivation again.... it was there before, it's just misplaced!

Definitely not as a surprise!! It happened again last night!! Oh my goodness, I thought I would die. At least this time, I considered it a possibility. From now on, I will just adjust my expectations, haha!

See, you get me, haha! I mean, I love her tons, but damn.
Heels are pretty to look at, but that's as far as it goes for me personally. My back and feet can't take it at all! I don't know how some people can walk around all day in a 6" heel, and still be functional. They're amazing.
