I've used Spark several times in the past with great results!

I'm hoping to make my time on SP this time a lifelong commitment of health and wellness rather than months of me fixing me only to fall off the wagon again!

Another big step in my journey? LOVING fitness and building muscle! I've really enjoyed added CrossFit, running, biking, rowing, Yoga and so much more to my life this time around!

Strange to say I've recently joined the elite club of people who can call themselves runners! I just ran my first 5k in December and my first 1/2 marathon in March! I'm running a race a month for the year of 2016.

Crossfit has become my saving grace. I love doing it, how it makes me feel AND how it makes me look. I'm strong now - which I NEVER used to be! And who doesn't like flexing their new found muscles all the time? (yes, I do it in the mirror - sorry - I'm proud!)

The me outside of my workouts? I'm a 31 year old Quality Consultant who works with medical devices. I'm happily married for just over a year now, and have a beautiful 7 year old step daughter. I love to read, cook, watch scary tv shows and movies and spending time with my friends. I throw darts, drink beer, love Steelers football and am amazingly good at Cards Against Humanity! I have a love for fresh local foods, am a supporter of small businesses and have been a vegetarian for 15+ years!

My Goals:
I've had the pleasure of reaching many past goals here on spark!

This time around - it's about fixing my lifestyle once again - and being happy with the process rather than the hard # results.

And it's about getting as FIT as possible. I'm looking to drop my body fat, increase my overall body structure and gain some good muscles!

My Program:
I stick to my 1200-1550 calories a day - staying strict with my meal tracker.

My focus this time around is more group activities, more time outside with the pups, and cooking healthy for more people in my life.

Personal Information:
I have a tattoo on my butt - is that personal enough? :-)

Other Information:
I ran and finished my first 1/2 marathon in March!

Time: 2 Hours, 32 minutes and 56 seconds.

Goal: To convince myself to run the mini heart again next March and shave those 2 minutes and 56 seconds off of my time!

    Congrats on your accomplishments!
    I was so excited to read your story. I too have found and fell in love with Crossfit. I had to begin at the Master's level (which is the lowest) but just got to Basics this week. It has taken me awhile because I started at 313 I am at 290lbs. It has been slow on the scale, but I am able to do things like run a 550 without stopping and do a burpee with my chest hitting the deck finally. I am still really slow and I am usually the last one to finish my workouts and I am the heaviest person there, but I am so full of confidence that I don't care. People there cheer me on no matter what. I have found a really great gym. I no longer say that I can't do I say...I am going to try. I maybe look at the scale every few weeks, but I am more interested in how many rounds I can achieve in an AMRAP.

    I can go on and on about this. But thanks for sharing with us.
