November 2013 - Back on Spark!

Well here I am on spark people again. Looking at the picture to the left I wish I hadn't left myself go. I was so close to all of my goals. And then love happened.....I never realized how much a relationship can change your outlook. When someone is constantly telling you that you are beautiful it is hard to take a step back and see what is happening. Truth: I am right back where I started almost 3 years ago. I got a huge wake up when the scale told me ...
November 2013 - Back on Spark!

Well here I am on spark people again. Looking at the picture to the left I wish I hadn't left myself go. I was so close to all of my goals. And then love happened.....I never realized how much a relationship can change your outlook. When someone is constantly telling you that you are beautiful it is hard to take a step back and see what is happening. Truth: I am right back where I started almost 3 years ago. I got a huge wake up when the scale told me that I am dangerously close to my "never again" weight. Something about seeing the big 2-0-0 on the scale terrifies me.

So the pressure is officially on, and I'm laying it all out. Coming back to spark people to make it happen like I did last time. I know I can do it and have all the motivation in the world.
GOALS:
- Lose 27 pounds before the marathon in March
- Keep exercising to the best of my ability during March recovery
- Lose a total of 53 pounds before my wedding in October
- Be in the best shape of my life at the wedding to be ready for the AFTER (new goals in mind for 2015 that have to do with two little feet and don't involve running)


--------Original Bio-------

Hello there~ I am Katie (or Salina, I get called both). I work as my own business doing marketing for small businesses in the Buffalo area (ktcreativity.com). I love music, yoga, reading, dancing and a bunch of other things. I currently live in Hamburg, NY with my beautiful Great Pyrenees Crescent, my foster failure pup Vader, in our lovely NEW house together. I have a pretty extensive running resume including several marathons, triathlons, an ultra, and the Goofy Challenge. However I still see myself to be EXTREMELY lazy and have a hard time getting going.

I am lucky to finally have found the support I needed in my life. I have turned my once doubting mother into a runner and met the most amazing man ever (who also happens to be a runner). I expect some big life changes are on the horizon but can always guarantee I will be running and working towards staying healthy.

You're right - until you run the marathon that you've set your heart on (and running the distance in practice just isn't the same), sometimes you just can't move on.

Enjoy the process (again!) and then get ready for the ride of your life -
You know you're going to love it (except for the "ouch-ouch-ouch" parts)...
