Back To Slim

I don't update my main page or blogs as much as I should... But I still Spark mostly every day! Sparkpeople literally changed my life. My past is below this but these days I am living a healthy lifestyle with the help of Spark & exercising like a mofo... because I simply love it. I Bodyrock/HIIT/WarriorZ... those sort of things. I'd bodybuild if I had the free time but I don't. I work a lot, so fit in my fitness where and as often as I can! :)
Thanks for reading and stopping by my page!! ...

Determination is set...

I used to be slim and fit, growing up. I hit 18 and left school, got a car and discovered freedom, all of a sudden I didn't have any physical activity whatsoever in my life. I always ate what i wanted and when i wanted, and i didn't stop this habit. I piled on the weight and didn't even realise what I was doing. I didn't even realise i wasn't 'me' any more. By the time I was 22, i had been over 250lbs. I joined Spark in September 2009, whilst i was still 22. Since then, i haven't looked back!! I have remebered how much I love exercise and sports, and have been eating for my body, not for the taste of junk!!!

A year down the line I have reached my second goal weight here at Spark of 160lbs. I have reached a dress size I never thought i would ever see again. And I don't hide from cameras anymore!!

I got married on 25th September 2010, I had a while out of Spark, half Sparking and half doing what i wanted - now it's time to get back and have a fit and healthy married life, and Sparkling along the way!!

Actually P has family nearish to Glasgow but it's new city to both of us. Just feels like the right kind of place (and yep, it does seem pretty similar to Liverpool!) - right size, right shape, as it were.

I would be tempted to tour the world, but I'm pretty nervous about nomadic working in this country first! If all goes well, I might pop across to Europe too, but I just have no idea what the next few months hold - currently exciting, but I'm sure will get scary when the homeless reality hits!

I hope you do pick up blogging again. If I were you I'd just jump right in and not try to catch anyone up - it gets far too daunting that way :-)

Think I've pretty much given up on any decent exercise for now. Feels like everything is conspiring against me, and having a fresh start on the horizon (where a gym and PT WILL happen), kind of means I can put it all off until then, doesn't it?! :-)

OOOOOOH!!!! That's such exciting news!! Congraluations!! emoticon emoticon

That's so amazing to come as a surprise, though I know it's something you were thinking of at some point. You're going to be supermom (yes, the american spelling an' all!) I hope you feel really well through it - you're obviously in great shape. Can imagine you might get a bit frustrated at not being able to push yourself though :-)

Can't remember how much I said before, but my move north will be very north indeed...beyond you...to Glasgow! We had a minitrip there so I could at least see the city and I really liked it. There are still a few up-in-the air elements but we've handed in our 2 month notice here, so we'll be moving no matter what.

I definitely still need a holiday but I think I need to learn a thing or two from you on that front. You always seem to be going away :-) I can't see it fitting in for a while, but if I end up homeless for a bit (entirely possible) I might tour the country and visit friends, and maybe, maybe go abroad. I think I have too many options as a freelancer!

Will you blog on here about how things progress for you? I'm fascinated by how it happens differently for different people and how they keep up with health and fitness. Aaand I'm a nosy parker too!

You are the recipient of the Beautiful Woman Award!! emoticon emoticon

Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the page of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out! emoticon

Again, Congratulations

Hey, thanks for the nudge! Hope your busyness is good busyness, and I'm looking forward to that CF report!

Things just ticking along round here really, not much to blog about (ok, there probably is but I've de-prioritised blogging on here to keep some sanity in my life!) BIggest fitness news is that I've decide to get a PT at some point. Could do with some in-person backside kicks to make me work a bit harder. Will have to wait for a bit more money to come in from various jobs, but I'm thinking mid-summer maybe? I may (will!) hate being shouted at though!

Trying to get back to blogging on my website too. I find it so frustrating that I get all stiff on there, but can just write like me on here! More coming soon though, and hopefully sounding a little better. I should probably blog on here again for practice.

Hope you're having a lovely Sunday! x
