This was around the end of Sept 2013... visiting Mesa Verde with my honey and my Mama





Workshop over the summer 2013. Fun! Haha





Dec. '11 - One of the pictures that motivates me. Notice the hand-over-the-belly technique?

Life is About the Journey, Not the Destination

Hello!

I have been using SparkPeople since January '12, and I lost 50lbs in the first 5 months! Since then I have maintained at about 168-172. I would like to finally make it to my goal weight of 140-150, which doesn't sound so far away, but is somehow really tough! The most important part of the last year is getting to know my body and how to live a healthy lifestyle while still enjoying some candy every now and then.

Hello!

I have been using SparkPeople since January '12, and I lost 50lbs in the first 5 months! Since then I have maintained at about 168-172. I would like to finally make it to my goal weight of 140-150, which doesn't sound so far away, but is somehow really tough! The most important part of the last year is getting to know my body and how to live a healthy lifestyle while still enjoying some candy every now and then.

Before joining SparkPeople, I didn't have a clear direction of where my career was heading. I got a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature and Writing from The Evergreen State College (GO GEODUCKS!) and eventually ended up working as an English instructor at the local community college!!


Hobbies... reading, knitting, decoupage, disc golf, sewing, bird-watching, hiking, swimming, adventuring, yoga... I dunno, crafting and adventuring! =)


I wanted to also add a history so that I can look back and remind myself how far I've gone... My whole life I have struggled with weight. The heaviest I have weighed was '07 when I was around 250 or maybe 260. I have never paid much attention to weight, really. I was in an abusive relationship and felt terrible about myself. After ending that and getting out on my own I lost quite a lot of weight. When put to my own devices I usually have a healthy lifestyle. I'd say when I worked at Chaco Canyon, I was probably around 190 or 200lbs. Then I got with my beau and started eating more of what he eats (not very healthy, i assure you) and started playing more video games and after a year and a half went back up to 220lbs! I hated seeing that number. So I decided to just do it and not look back. I am happy and I want to be able to express that physically! I want to be able to move!
(1/28/2012 - 220lbs)
(2/19/2012 - 209.6lbs! Progress!)
(3/10/2012 - 200.6lbs! Go under 200 Go under 200...)
(4/1/2012 - 190lbs! Hey hey hey!!)
(4/26/2012 - 180lbs! =) Yay!)
(5/12-12/12 - BIG plateau... hanging out around 175lbs)
(2/1/13- 169.8! And I'm back in the game!)
(12/10/13 - A gain... 185lbs. How embarrassing.)
(1/1/14 - I am officially restarting at 193.8. That is the official number. Uhg. Okay, chin up, just run forward, don't look back! Continue healthy habits!)
(1/15/14 - 190.0! Aaah... the scale is going the right direction again, lol)

I can't say that I am ready for Insanity but we are definitely going to do it. I know I will have to modify but I plan on sticking it out til the end! I'm going to stick with eating healthy and have my shakeology once a day while doing it. It's going to be tough!
How are you doing? Doing anything new?

hey! I just now notice you left a comment on my page a few days ago! I don't know how I missed it. I am doing well. I just rejoined the gym today and started doing my C25K today also. I did really good with it and I actually enjoyed it! My friend and I are planning to start INSANITY right after Easter. We will have to do modifications of it but we are looking forward to doing it and we think that we will help keep each other accountable to actually finish it.
How are things going with you! Haven't talked to you in forever but I did see that you put on FB that you lost your phone. lol

I did all right thank you. It was a challenge but I actually stayed in calorie range. First time in close to forever. I got some of the dessert flavored gums and that helped take the edge off a little. emoticon emoticon emoticon

emoticon for the very sweet comment! I have actually been in a slump for the last couple of days. Yesterday and the day before I was feeling really off. I wasn't feeling good but I wasn't sick either. I couldn't pinpoint what was wrong. Yesterday was the worst. I didn't have energy to do anything. I couldn't even meet my daily steps goal. i didn't even get half in. And on tuesday I had a really bad migraine that was making me dizzy and sick to my stomach. I thought I was going to throw up from it but thankfully I didn't. So needless to say the last 3 days just haven't been good for me. I am feeling a lot better today. My stomach was a little weird when I woke up this morning but it is gone now. Hoping it will stay that way so I can get a good workout in when I get home. Need to start feeling better! My 21 day fix challenge starts on Monday and there is no way I am missing out on that! PAid too much for it and too excited for it!
It's not just your fault that we haven't talked much lately. I haven't exactly been doing a lot on the computer lately but I will definitely change that. Have to keep up with you! lol. I hope you have a great friday! TTYS!
