Live with Intention...and Laughter

Hi! My name is Hollynn and I joined the Spark July 27, 2009 as part of my new "focus on positive things I can do" goal with hopes of finding support for weight loss. I have been heavy, thin and everything in between and would like to be HEALTHY. Thanks in advance for support!

Hi! My name is Hollynn and I joined the Spark July 27, 2009 as part of my new "focus on positive things I can do" goal with hopes of finding support for weight loss. I have been heavy, thin and everything in between and would like to be HEALTHY. Thanks in advance for support!

My first year on the Spark was amazing and I accomplished more than I would believe possible. In one year, I crossed over into Onederland, losing 95 lbs in total and completed a challenge to myself of exercising everday day for a year.

Shortly after completing my first triathlon, I found myself burned out and took a break from exercising. When I restarted, I was bursting with energy and wound up with a long and relatively debilitating case of Plantar fascists.

In October 2012, and for the second time in my life I had a "photo wake up call" It is time for me to dig my head out of the sand and become accountable to myself for who I want to live. I firmly believe we create our own destiny, and we are responsible for our own behavior. I choose to live a life full of intention and joy. October 9, 2012 - 234 lbs
Update May 2, 2013 -186lbs - 100lbs FINALLY!!!

We are who we choose to be. Live actively!



Achievements:
1. 1 year Sparkversary! - 95 lbs DONE!
2. Completing several 5K Races
Susan Komen Race for the Cure Pittsburgh (5/9/10)
Spirit & Breath 5K for Lung Cancer (7/3/30)
New Deal 5K & Festival, Arthurdale (7/10/10)
Race for a Reason, Debbie Green 5K (8/7/10)

3. Being voted a Spark Motivator (1/30/10)
4. Done Girl of the Day - 4/27/10 - love my done girls!
5. 365 Days of Consecutive Exercise (no less than 45 minutes a day for a full year) -July 25, 2010
6. Cycled the entire Greater Allegheny Passage (GAP) 150 miles from Pittsburgh PA to Cumberland MD in a weekend, July 16-18
7. Meeting a fellow Sparkie: Esther (Callikia) and her husband met us in Wheeling, WV for a race - we had a great time!
8. My first triathlon: August 28, 2010
9. Motivator of the Day - December 10, 2011!



Also I am the Leader of the 100 Day Challenge Team. I lost 40lbs in my challenge to myself to exercise EVERY day for 100 days...lost another 32 lbs in my 2nd 1oo consecutive days, and 23 more in the 3rd 100. I made it all the way to day 365 and now October9, 2012 I am starting it over again. Feel free to join me!

I truly believe that every positive choice you make changes your path in life.

Hey lady! Keeping our spark up right??? Has your knee healed all the way yet? I hope so, I know you like getting on your dangerous bike ;) As for the new photo...it wasn't just wet, it was 33 degrees! I have never had a race in the rain or in such freakin' cold weather, good thing it was only a 6K. I still don't like the new start page layout, it is so much easier to miss your recent blogs....I just noticed them so now I have to read them :) Keep your chin up.
