Drink water, track food, move!

Hi. I'm Heather, a 36-year-old San Diego transplant. I've been on SparkPeople for a couple of years and have made some really great friends here.

Goals and hopes for myself in 2013:

* I'm going to run my first 10K and keep running 5Ks, which will help me reach my annual fitness minutes goal, too.

* I want to do more things that scare me. I had a couple of things on an adventure list for 2012, but I didn't do them. It's ON this year! Climbing Cowles ...
Hi. I'm Heather, a 36-year-old San Diego transplant. I've been on SparkPeople for a couple of years and have made some really great friends here.

Goals and hopes for myself in 2013:

* I'm going to run my first 10K and keep running 5Ks, which will help me reach my annual fitness minutes goal, too.

* I want to do more things that scare me. I had a couple of things on an adventure list for 2012, but I didn't do them. It's ON this year! Climbing Cowles Mountain in San Diego and taking a spin class - these two things scare the hell outta me, so I'm definitely doing them.

* I am determined to stop beating myself up. What good comes from it? I wouldn't talk that way to anyone else, so why is it OK to do that to myself? Sounds logical, but following up with action is tough. I consciously did this before and was amazed at how much better I felt.

* Taking care of my health is another big goal. I avoided doctors for years and let small problems grow larger. I don't have time and energy to waste, so I need to tackle health issues as they crop up. Tracking my food, drinking enough water, and eating fresh, beautiful foods will be my baseline for healthy living. If it's a habit, it takes very little work.

SparkPoints: 44,674

Fitness Minutes: 58,553

My Goals:
July 2013:
* 1,000+ fitness minutes
* 8 glasses of water a day
* Jump rope 1 min without stopping
* Track food and stick to my calorie range
* Be nicer to myself (and others!)

My Program:
I've backed off training for a 10K for now, but I want to run the Iron Girl 10K in December.

I've started doing a Kaia FIT workout 3 times a week, and I love how challenging it is. It's a bootcamp/Crossfit-type workout with lots of intervals and bodyweight work.

I'm gluten-free on the recommendation from a nutritionist, and it's working for me. I've finally started to lose weight and it has eliminated some embarrassing issues, as well.

I'm one big experiment lately!

Personal Information:
I live north of San Diego and I'm always up for a walk/hike/run in this gorgeous weather. If you're game, let me know!

Other Information:
When I run fast, even for just a few seconds, I feel like Wonder Woman. Any Prince song from back in the day can instantly improve my mood.

Thanks for the blog love and support. I have realized no one is ready for kids lol No matter how ready you are in your mind. I wasn't ready, little man wasn't planned, but you make the best of it. It is a whole set of challenges especially if you both work full time. I feel good for taking that first step b/c it's hard not to compare yourself to other moms sometimes.

Thanks for stopping by the old blog and showing my baby bear some love on his photo. Time flies! Thanks for the tip on doing body weight exercises. Man am I sore today lol I am sO out of shape. I walked tons during my pregnancy until the end, last 6 weeks when the doctor told me to take it easy. And now he's six months, you can imagine my body is like "Hey what's going on there!" I didn't get to workout today, but I did track my food. It's another small step in the right direction. I hope you had a wonderful day!
