If You're Here to Pass Judgement: Go Elsewhere!

Hi! My name is Sheena and I've been sparking for over five years! I've updated my profile numerous times, and once again, it's time for change. Thanks to sparkpeople, I no longer "diet," I can easily track my nutrition in my head, and my fitness levels are higher than at any point in my entire life. I'm happy and I'm healthy and if you are here to pass judgement: go elsewhere! You can't shake this happy/healthy glow I've found, so take your bad attitude and go try and bring down someone else. ...
Hi! My name is Sheena and I've been sparking for over five years! I've updated my profile numerous times, and once again, it's time for change. Thanks to sparkpeople, I no longer "diet," I can easily track my nutrition in my head, and my fitness levels are higher than at any point in my entire life. I'm happy and I'm healthy and if you are here to pass judgement: go elsewhere! You can't shake this happy/healthy glow I've found, so take your bad attitude and go try and bring down someone else.

I'm a full-time waitress/law student. I work long shifts running my rear-end-off (quite literally, my yoga booty won't come back!) I've had to up my calorie in-take in order to keep with my high-paced lifestyle, so if you find my meals are too high-cal for you, there are two options: up your fitness level or go find someone else's posts to follow! I aim to feed my body healthy/delicious things, but I do have one major downfall: caffeine/sugary drinks. People LOVE to point out that I would be so much better off it I kicked my habit (one a day) but I am completely unapologetic. I drink one soda a day. My nutrition logs are open. Get over it! I don't like diet soda, I won't drink diet sodas (unless in case of emergency) I NEED my one coke a day and you can't convince me otherwise! LOL. SO THERE. HI! My name is sheena and I'm a coke-head. No one is perfect! Get over yourself!

As a five-year-plus Sparker, I remember this used to be a mentally fit place as well, meaning members embraced each other, as we ARE, not as the perfect image we DESIRE ourselves to be. Lately, with the increase on the social graph, I've found a lot more negative energy floating around sparkpeople. I've noticed more of people trying to convince people they should feel apologetic for their decisions. Well, I say... be un-apologetically you! If you like to a have sweet-treat a day, but otherwise you meet your goals and keep it in balance... go for it! If you fall off the wagon, I'm here for you. If you binge for a week, even if you struggle with an ED.... I'm here to listen and I'm not here to judge!

I've struggled a lot in my life.... with people who think I should be ashamed of my choices... and I could never be happy with myself until one day I REALIZED... HELLO! I am me in spite of what others might think, if I feel fit/healthy/happy and my body/mind/soul reflect this inner peace... who cares what anyone else thinks!! Embrace yourself, the good, the bad, the ugly. Be kind and be gentle with yourself. It took me nearly 26 years to find this peace for myself, and I'm afraid some never find it at all!

SparkPoints: 13,751

Fitness Minutes: 16,631

My Goals:
My number one goal is to maintain the healthy/happy/fit lifestyle that I have achieved with the help of Sparkpeople.

My Program:
My nutrition program is all about moderation. Nothing is off limits, as long as I control my portions!

My exercise program is very intense. I strength train for 1 hour 3-4x/week and do some form of cardio almost every day. I love aerobics, dancing when no one is watching, lots and lots of yoga and pilates. I love beachbody DVDS! I collect the ones I can afford! :) Chalene is my hero!

Personal Information:
I'm an Alabama baby born and bred, but I love to travel. I study foreign languages (french and spanish) I've spent most of my adult life muddling through academia, finally settling into a program in contract law. I'm in my senior year of my undergraduate degree in acquisition and contract law/management and I hope to get into law school after graduation. I live a fast-paced lifestyle and can't sit still for ten minutes! I used to do a lot of volunteer work, but I've had to cut back on activities. However, after school, I would like to afford more time to helping others.

Other Information:
I love music and dancing. I play guitar and piano... drums, bass, mandolin, you name it! I'm also newly-wed to my childhood best friend and I've honestly never been so happy. We love to travel and go on hiking trips often. He is definitely my better half! However, cooking for both of our tastes is our only marital challenge. :) He's learning that vegetables aren't scary! And I'm learning to relax and have honest to goodness ice-cream every once in a while!

Hi, I had to visit your page after reading your gripe about the well-intentioned (but unnecessary) advice to watch your bread intake. hehe I "get" that you need lots of calories to fuel your workouts. Extreme calorie restriction + heavy workouts = disaster. After five years on Spark People, it sounds like you know what to do. :)

I want to share a link to Go Kaleo's FB page. She lost about 80 lbs and is now lean & strong. She consumes roughly 3000 calories a day. She believes in "eating the food" to fuel your workouts. Check out her page. https://www.facebook.com/gokaleo

Sorry to offend you -- I was only repeating an article that I read "yesterday" right here on Spark People.

I look at SP as a place to live and learn. If I mentioned to someone an item that I eat and they knew it was high in fat, calories or something, I would be happy they told me. I certainly don't claim to know everything, and again, I apologize if it struck you the wrong way..

I was reading over your suggestions for breakfast, and I just wondered if you realized how high in calories a "few" slices of raisin bread could be? Each slice is 140 calories, so if you're planning on eating more than two slices you could be eating a lot more calories than you suspect.
