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!!

I love hardcore workouts.
I like to jump rope.
I love the challenge myself.

I am so laid back i'm horizontal.

Ok, so it may take me a whole week, but here I am asking again...? Don't make me come oop north and drag you there :-p

Do they use barbells in crossfit? I have a feeling they do, which is yet another reason they need to be there! Or you need to get one of your own to play with!

I just got my jelly legs from blogilates and now have jelly core from the same place! It doesn't take much really, I just don't push myself far enough that often.

Work's ok at the moment. I'm actually at my mum and dad's for a few days now, still working, but having a change of scene. Going through a bit of a bleugh period with what I want to do, but I'm still not complaining!

And again, how was crossfit?! I know I'm probably being annoying but I just have this feeling it'll be so you, so I'm dying to know if that's true! I feel so unfit in comparison - I finally achieved jelly legs yesterday but it's my (very) long term goal to get a really good PT. Someone needs to make me jelly-like more often!

I wouldn't exactly say there was any painting of the town on my birthday. I am a complete and utter lightweight these days: 1 cocktail and 1 glass of wine gave me a headache the next day (FFS!) Still, I'm cheap I suppose :-p

Thanks for liking my random theory! I had a lovely girly night out yesterday evening, which is weird because I'm not girly and neither are my friends. Fun though!

So how was crossfit?? Did you chicken out or did it blow your mind? We want details!

Yay! So glad you're feeling back on it! The crossfit will only add to that I'm sure. I kind of wish I had you around these parts to drag me along and make me try it, but I'm too much of a scaredy cat (among many other excuses!) You have to come and post a full report on here straight after.

Workouts these days are a bit of a mishmash. Recently moved from something small every weekday (+ saturday zumba) to something a little bigger 3 days a week (+ zumba) which I'm sure makes me do more overall. To be honest it's mainly blogilates because she really kicks my butt and I don't have to put much thought into the whole thing. Feeling really good at the moment and toning is still improving. I'm still on the road to that flat stomach - inching nearer!

This week's been exciting workwise - I've met loads of great people and have some exciting plans (which will take ages to appear of course!) for my business. Starting with finally hiring a web designer I think!

And the sun's out at last!! :-) !!
