2017
Sparking since 2009! My journey here has seen many different nutrition and fitness programs and my weight and size has fluctuated up and down. As of right now, I'm just trying to be as healthy and fit as possible as I enter the last year of my 40's. I'm no longer looking to be a certain number on the scale, but aiming to look and feel fabulous and confident in my own skin. And to be strong and toned.
I love and enjoy fitness! I became a runner when I quit smoking in 2009. I have run numerous races including 2 Half Marathons. Currently I am easing back into running after being out 3 months with an injury.
I have really gotten into lifting weights consistently at the gym (Jim Stepponi programs). Lifting is teaching me patience, determination, discipline, and confidence. I'm excited to see where it takes me in 2017. Think *TRANSFORMATION*. That's the goal.

    Hey Lori! Happy weekend to you! So far it's raining when the weather channel said it wasn't going to, so I'm replanning my weekend lol. It's all good though!

    Okay, my #yearofstrongandbendy challenge. I hashtag that for you for a reason, I'll get to that in a sec. This is something that I followed Mellissa Hartwig, co-founder of Whole30, doing throughout 2016. It wasn't until my poor performance at the Vegas run that I accepted I need to do more than just run and strength train with weights. I also have a full-time, sit-down job, so my muscles get shortened more than lengthened most of the time. So I decided to do my own year of strong and bendy challenge. How I'm working this is I pick 3 yoga moves that are very challenging for me and put the effort in to be able to accomplish them at the level that I'm satisfied with, then move on to the next challenging move. This has brought a whole new world to me because I've never truly done any yoga before. So I'm stretching and lengthening places on my body that have not seen that kind of movement in ... well, like forever. I absolutely love this challenge, because I see improvement in all moves fairly quickly. So I know my body is loving it, too. I choose yoga moves that are things I've never done before, so it's always keeping me motivated to keep at it. I'm a bit competitive with myself lol.

    If you happen to be on Instagram, that is where the hashtag seems to come in most handy. She will post a move she is working on and hashtags it, so you can easily run the hashtag and pull up hundreds of examples of these moves to choose from, and for motivation. You can google the hashtag, too.

    I've become much more strong and bendy since starting in January. I was absolutely shocked to see how inflexible I actually was and really shed a lot of light with my leg issues. I've had no pain in that leg since doing this. Lightbulb moment there! For now my favorite challenge moves are the full cassel squat and I'm working hard on my wall planks. I'm trying to get to a full minute of holding that one. So far I'm up to 30 seconds! The third move is combined. I'm working on actually being able to do a decent push up lol, with up up down down, dolphin push ups and dolphin to down dog.

    Hope this answers your questions! Let me know if you have any more :) Have a great weekend, Lori!
