I'm Mindy and I live in Georgia. I am currently engaged to the love of my life, Brandon. We've been together for seven years. I am majoring in Early Childhood Education and enjoy spending time with family. My ultimate goal is to be at my suggested healthy weight range; however, baby steps are the only way, right?!
This is my journey and a new chapter in my life...I am going to do this once and for all! :) After so many fails...the time is now.
My workouts consist of cardio/walking/running. I go to the gym throughout the week, as well as work out inside my home. I am engaging in major portion control to lead a healthier life. After all, this isn't just a temporary thing; this is for life!
Feel free to follow my journey. I am going to start my blog back up soon.
My main goals and aspirations are to become a healthier person and to continue losing the remainder of my "extra" weight, until I reach my overall achievement of 120lbs!
Staying active in the SP forums!
Intense cardio 6x (days) a week, light cardio on 7th.
Portion control during all meals, always!
Keeping "snacking" to a minimum of 2x a day, if any.
8+ glasses of water a day.
Absolutely no junk food, fast food, fried foods, or sodas.

It does sound like you have a lot going on, but hopefully you can spend a few minutes here to track your nutrition and or track your fitness.
Plus, if you can, try to post a little on your Spark Teams as that helps to keep you motivated.
Best of luck to you.
