Coming Around Again...

07162014
I'm starting again. I am back at 262lbs. I'm 5'9, so it's pretty curvy, but I could shed a bit of that. Just getting down to 200 by the beginning of '15 would be nice. Maybe get to 190-185 by 38 (I'll be 37 in a little over a week.)

I have a lot of goals, actually. I guess I just need to take my time with them. I thought I should push myself more, get to 200 in a few months rather than a year. I realize, often, that I need to make changes that will stick and ...

I have a lot of goals, actually. I guess I just need to take my time with them. I thought I should push myself more, get to 200 in a few months rather than a year. I realize, often, that I need to make changes that will stick and that doesn't happen when I want it to, it happens when I "Get It." I'll get it when I can be consistent. I can be consistent when I consider myself more often.

I'm sure there are those of you who understand what I mean. I will try to grow more consistent and consider myself more often over the next year. I hope to stick to my goals more and get out of the 200's by the time I'm 38. We'll have to see. I am, as usual, optimistic.


Current Status:
SWIMMING_GLEE has been virtually unable to stop eating, today. I think I know that means... A Change a-Comin! (Cycle, food plan or fitness. could be either or all.)

SparkPoints: 4,528

Fitness Minutes: 1,303

My Goals:
1: reclaim sense of self-esteem and discipline
2: to stick with a fitness regimen for longer than a month. Minimum 10 mins, 5x a week.
3: learn to make meals for myself (Not necessarily cook, if I can get away with it.)
4: Improve mental health and function. Working with Affirmations, journaling - or Blogging, here, and overall mental fitness activity daily.
5: Shed 50-75 pounds with a focus on cardio activity as well as trimming up my midsection.
Never had kids, but somehow have the bulge.

My Program:
My work out regimen basically goes with my work schedule. I'm very into Bodyweight workouts including, but not limited to, Pilates. I'm a fan of 10Min workouts, but the following layout is often more intensive.
*M: Upper body
*W: Core
*Th: Upper Body
*F: Lower Body.
I walk about 3 miles a night, four nights a week for my job and have been doing what I can to make it a real workout.

As many quick/easy recipes as I can get from SparkPeople, focusing on no-cook breakfast and lunches.
gluten-free - if I can hack it. I am also looking to minimize, if not eliminate, fast food.
But, making more of my own meals will be a great start!

Affirmations and journaling along with mental fitness activity such as vocabulary building.

Personal Information:
36 Y/o Polyamorous Leo Woman in Rhode Island. Been the "Big Girl" most of my life - not only curvy but TALL. Get some cardio fitness through a job in Security, two hour-long patrols a night, four nights a week, including a flight of stairs.

Other Information:
My primary Partner, Beppo71 has slimmed down quite a bit through his work and ease of kitchenry and food. I've always been intimidated by certain foods and the kitchen, in general. It's a process for me and I am also working to overcome a lazy streak the length and breadth of California.
