Sixth Time's A Charm

I'm Shay, back to Spark for the sixth time. I do the same thing, time and time again: lose the weight then just go back to my old, lazy ways. Of course I know what is going to happen! Why do I continue to do this to myself? Because it's just 'easier' I guess?

I'm still in search of making it an entire year with seeing my goals through. Basically, getting to maintenance and sticking with it. And the thing is, I love to cook, and love to cook healthy! I also really do love running, ...
I'm Shay, back to Spark for the sixth time. I do the same thing, time and time again: lose the weight then just go back to my old, lazy ways. Of course I know what is going to happen! Why do I continue to do this to myself? Because it's just 'easier' I guess?

I'm still in search of making it an entire year with seeing my goals through. Basically, getting to maintenance and sticking with it. And the thing is, I love to cook, and love to cook healthy! I also really do love running, especially when it's outside in the summertime. I truly enjoy these things, and they're two of the most important components of this whole process.

So I'm back, admitting my failures again, restarting that weight ticker, yet again..each time my start weight a little higher than the year previous. It's ok. I'm thankful for a very forgiving body..but I do realize it won't always be this way. I'm about to turn 30, and I know that as we get older, weight is harder and harder to lose.

Here's to making this year MY year! The start of the permanent healthy, slimmer me!

SparkPoints: 11,902

Fitness Minutes: 17,980

My Goals:
Beat my original 5k time - 27:40

Run a Warrior Dash

Comfortably be a size 6-8

Not stop my regimen once I reach my goal weight (like I always do). Instead, I need to create a realistic maintenance program of diet and exercise.

My Program:
Do as much home cooking and experimenting with different proteins and veggies as I can.

Gym 4-5 days a week. Run a minimum of 4 miles on the treadmill, or do half treadmill half elliptical. I also use 5lb weights at home for arm toning.

Videos I enjoy:
Debbie Siebers' Cardio Core (from the Slim Series)
Denise Austin 3 Week Boot Camp
Biggest Loser Cardio Max
TurboFire
Brazil Butt Lift


Other Information:
I enjoy writing in my free time, as well as being an avid reader and crossword puzzle-doer. I have a weakness for a good beer or glass of wine, working on keeping those consumed in moderation!

I own and run a residential cleaning business.

Hi there, Shay! I just added you and feel free to add me back. I would love to know all your tricks of the cooking trade. Go ahead and SP message me sometime, when you have time. I need to trick my dh in thinking that some of my dishes are full-fat, because that's the way he likes them. I'm so afraid to make things full-fat, because I'll eat way too much of it. I feel that if I have the calorie and fat grams down alot, then I can have a little more! emoticon

Hey, just stopped by to let you know that I made the cauliflower sauce. OMG! Why did I not know about this until now. I took some of the base sauce and added some parmesan and part skim mozzarella to make an alfredo/cheese sauce with some whole wheat linguine. My eight year old LOVED it and ate two helpings! Thanks so much for the idea.

Hey!!! Yes I had twin boys on January 9th, thank you. Now I am back to SP to try losing the rest of the baby weight and get my body back in shape for bikini season. Glad to see you're back doing the same.
