December 2012. My hair is getting longer.





May 2014 - I ran my very first Color Run 5K! It was fantastic :D





Instead of cake and ice cream for my birthday, we went to a Moroccan tea shop. It was amazing!



I have 9 pics in my gallery

For Me, For Life

In the past few years, I've gained and lost the same 15 pounds. I spend months focused and consistent with my fitness only to run into some work scheduling that keeps me from working out for a few days. I'd lose my momentum and go back to how things were before.

I'm reigniting my spark, starting over with the small goals. This time I've only gained three pounds back from my lowest in years, but it's still a work in progress. I'm not giving up.

Fitness Minutes: 9,589

My Goals:
I'm working on my overall goal in 5lb increments. Overall, my goal is 125.

Concurrent with my weight goals, I'm working on living each day with gratitude and mindfulness. It's easy for me to get lost in the hustle and bustle of the day and forget to live.

My Program:
Diet: vegetarian with one free day two or three times a month. No carbonated drinks, very limited alcohol and sugar.

Fitness: daily jogging (30 minutes or 3 miles, whichever is greater), yoga three nights a week, with a push-up/sit-up/stretch routine before I go to bed each night. Hiking when I can make time and a walks when the weather is too nice to stay indoors :)

Hi! I loved your comments on Coach Nicole's blog entry about "extreme" workouts. She doesn't seem to understand that there are people here who have achieved their primary goal of losing weight and attaining a basic level of fitness who now are striving to become athletes (and therefore train like athletes). I wish there were more articles on this site aimed at various levels of fitness.

I've been out for a bit, but wanted to stop by and say hi, I loved your I AM blog post, very inspired; needed that!
I am intrigued by this "hooping" looks like a good workout, based on your GIMP illustration.

I'll have to look for BullDog sauce. If they don't have it around me I'm sure I can find it down in Chinatown in NYC. And we have that tea shop in our mall so I'm definitely getting some Snow White! I have a couple of their flavors and you're right, expensive but amazing.

Everything is easier when your friends have your back!
