Every day counts - Keep Smiling & Keep Sparking!

December 2014: I might join a DietBet. I am slipping, and I have no motivation! I need some kind of change!

November 2014: I walked 2 miles instead of running the 5K. It was cold, but it was nice to get outside! Then the month zipped by!

October 2014: Where did September go?! I have been doing Zumba once or twice a week. I have a 5K run next month, and I need to train more for it! Work and school have been so busy! I started tracking my food again to keep me on track! ...

August 2014: I need a change. I have been walking the dog two times a day, but I need more exercise. I am doing a 5K race 11/8, so I need to get my butt moving again!

July 2014: I started doing more exercise at home. I might join a gym with my boyfriend and neighbors soon!

April 2014: I am excited for the Spring 5% Challenge to start up this month!

March 2014: Work is so busy. I can't wait for the April 15th tax day to get here! I have been trying to walk more when the weather is nice!

February 2014: I have been working 10 hours days & Saturdays since the last week of Jan! I have been SUPER busy! I keep missing yoga class because it starts at 6 or 6:15 and I am not done work until 7 or later every work night! I am still watching my food the best I can! I miss Sparking more often!

January 2014: Work has been very busy with payroll taxes! The weather has been very cold and also wet so far this year! I need to prepare myself for the official busy tax season because it is approaching so fast!

December 2013: Life has been SO busy lately! I went away on vacation and gained 1.5 lbs in a week. I lost it already, and I am still trying to keep the weight off! I did not reach my goal weight yet, but I am trying. I started yoga again, and I am trying to fit it into my busy schedule! It will be better once the holidays are over. I missSparking!

November 2013: I want to hit 1,500 fitness minutes again this month. I also want to spend more time with my family and friends. Life is pretty good right now & I want to continue staying positive! I am still in two challenges! They are motivating me to keep making smart & healthy decisions!

October 2013: I am still focusing on exercise! cardio kickboxing twice a week and pilates once a week! I also want to cut back on over-eating and I want to add healthier snacks! The 5% Challenge starts 10/12. I want to give up french fries & tortilla chips for 8 weeks!!

September 2013: I am still focusing on my exercise this month. I want to get 1,500 fitness minutes this month! I would like to stay below 160 on the scale if possible. I have cardio kickboxing twice a week, pilates once a week, and I want to 5K train also! I have my next 5k on 10/26! I need to continue staying away from dairy per Dr orders. It is tough!

August 2013: Instead of focusing fully on the scale, I want to focus on my exercise. Kickboxing & 5K training are my main focus this month! I would like to do a 5K next month. I just need to sign up! I also want to track my food closely!

July 2013: I have been going to cardio kickboxing every week - it is the best workout I ever did! Hopefully I can get 1200 fitness minutes this month & stick to tracking my food. I would like to reach my goal weight by my 2nd Sparkversary (August 17th). If I don't make it, I won't be discouraged - but it would be nice!!!

June 2013: I am trying to schedule my exercise when I can! I can't believe June is here already! I don't have any 5K scheduled right now, and I need to restart my training. Hopefully I focus more on losing more weight instead of maintaining. I am glad I am not gaining a lot, but I would really like to reach my weight loss goal!

May 2013: I have a 5K on 5/12. I would like to go to Zumba at least twice this month! I keep to start doing more 5K training again! Eventually I want to set another weight-loss deadline, but I have so much else going on right now. I don't want to set a big goal like that and be disappointed. My big goal for May is - stay Happy & Positive!

April 2013: Instead of having a specific weight loss deadline this month, I want to focus more on me. I will keep tracking and exercising, but I want to do more for me. Eating healthy is important, but I won't get discouraged if I don't hit 155 by the end of this month!

March 2013: I just realized I didn't update my Sparkpage for Feb! I have been so busy with tax season. I am now 1 pound away from my healthy weight goal. I am 6 pounds away from losing 100 lbs! I missed my healthy weight goal - I wanted to get to 155 by Feb 28th, but I didn't make it! I don't have a set deadline yet, but I am hoping to be 155 by the end of April! I signed up for one 5K in April, and I would like to sign up for a few more. I am doing a few challenges, but I still feel like I Don't have enough time to Spark!

January 2013: I feel so far behind with Spark! I am still tracking most days, but I haven't had a ton of time to update my page. Sorry to everyone for not being able to comment as much as I used to! I miss all of you! Hopefully I get a set routine in once my late nights at work start up! I would like to be at 158lbs by the end of this month! and I need to restart my 5K training!!

December 2012: I can't believe it is December already! I have a Jingle Bell 5K run 12/8! I don't feel ready for it at all! I am part of the Sparking as a Team December Challenge. I also joined the Jolly Holiday Challenge. The first weigh-in is 12/10. I created an ultimate goal deadline... I would like to be at 155lbs by March 1, 2013. That will be 95 pounds lost! If I lose 3 pounds each month until March 1st, I will reach it! I hope to be 161 by the end of this month!

November 16, 2012: Thank you to everyone! I am now a Spark Motivator! WooHoo! The Fall Challenge ends Dec 1st! I have lost 86.2 pounds so far. I will need to get to 162.5 to reach my 5% goal weight! I was sick the first two weeks of the month, and I still haven't been doing as much exercise as I hoped! I need to keep pushing to lose another 1.5 lbs by 12/1!!!!

Fall 5% Challenge Update: I did not meet the 5%! But I did get 4.5% I can't wait for the Winter 5% Challenge!

October 2012: The Fall 5% Challenge started Oct 6th! Gooo Firecrackers!! I reached my mini-goal for September - I am now at 170lbs! 80 lbs gone! For October, I really need to push hard to lose weight for the 8 week Fall challenge. I would like to lose 5 pounds this month! I really need to make big changes to accomplish this! I have my 2nd 5K on 10/13. Hopefully I can get under 37 minutes!

September 2012: I lost 75lbs so far. I am starting a little early on this month - but I am super excited about it! I reached my mini-goal for August & I lost 75 lbs so far. I have one yoga & 3 zumba classes done so far. I feel great! I finally feel motivated enough to workout. I want to start 5K training this month. I have my first walk Sept 22nd, it is for Cystic Fibrosis. My Sept mini-goal is to lose 3 pounds. If I do that, I will have 78 pounds lost. I can't wait! Sept update: I did it!

August 2012: I have been maintaining the past few weeks instead of losing. I am going to make weekly goals to try and motivate myself more. This month marks my one year at Spark!!! I lost 72 pounds so far. I want to be at the 75 lbs lost mark by September this year. I KNOW I can do it - and I will!!!

July 2012: I lost 70 lbs so far. I feel closer to my healthy weight - but I still have a long way to go! I have been making mini-goals for myself so I get more exercise. I haven't been this skinny since 2006!

June 2012: I lost 69 lbs so far. I played tennis once this month & have been doing more walking here & there. I just need to stick with it more!

May 2012: Quick Update - finally lost 65 pounds! I want to get pictures.. soon enough I will get some (hopefully). I will update more when I get the chance. I am GOING to start working out soon!!!!

April 2012 It has been a while since I updated my spark info. I have been working a lot. I definitely need to get back on track. I reached my first big goal a while ago. I wanted to lose 50 lbs, and I did that! I have lost 62 lbs so far. But I only lost 4 pounds total in the month of March and April combined. I need to start working out again. I need to stop having so many cheat days! I am not regaining, but I also do not want to maintain where I am at now. I want to lose more!!! I WILL do it!

Jan 2012 I just looked at my original introduction from August when I started here. It said I want to look better for my wedding. Although this is true, so much has changed since then. I lost a lot of weight so far, and I almost reached my wedding loss goal of losing 50 lbs before Oct 2012. I almost feel really stupid for wanting to look better just because I am getting married. I now want to be a better person. I am dedicated to becoming healthier. I want to be stronger physically, emotionally, and mentally! This is my weight loss Journey, but it is also much more than that!

SparkPoints: 64,591

Fitness Minutes: 26,563

My Goals:
I want to be healthier, stronger, skinnier, and more confident in myself! My reward system is not just to celebrate my weight loss. It is about making goals, dedicating myself, and celebrating ME! I don't give myself enough credit, and I should! I would like to be at 155lbs by March 1, 2013! I also want to complete a 5K in under 30 minutes - no deadline yet!

My Program:
I have been focusing on tracking food since August when I started on Spark. I keep putting off exercising- but I AM going to do more soon! I go on walks when I can! I have cut out most red meat because of how fattening it can be. I try to avoid fatty, greasy, and fried foods when I can because of their unhealthy nature & also because I had my gallbladder out!

Personal Information:
I grew up in Pennsylvania, and I am still here! I am 29 and very dedicated to myself now. I used to be very shy and kept everything to myself. I am still shy, but I am more open now when I need to be! Instead of hiding myself, I am doing my best to do what I want with my life!

emoticon The Motivator of the Day.

I'm sure it is cold in Pennsylvania today. I always want to go on a vacation and see the state. When I was in high school, I got a college catalog for Westminster College in New Wilmington, Pa and thought about going to school there. (I lived in Illinois). It was a beautiful campus and a lovely Presbyterian school. My father thought it was to far away.
