About Me:

I'm discovering what it's like to completely change my lifestyle and become a healthier, happier, more active me.

The goals I'm working toward:

  • Being an average, healthy weight (65 lbs less than I am now)
  • Not allowing my weight hinder me from doing activities
  • Gaining confidence and happiness no matter what the scale says

I haven't felt comfortable with my weight since:

My driver's license lists that I'm 150. I got my license when I was 16.
I'm now 26. I think that was the last time I was comfortable with my weight.

My favorite healthy food:

Kashi cereal, broccoli, WHOLLY GUACAMOLE, Lime brown rice chips, grilled chicken, extra lean ground turkey soft tacos, nonfat Greek yogurt, cherry tomatoes, granny smith apples

My guiltiest pleasure:

Yogurt covered pretzels, maybe a diet soda once a week

I'm inspired to live a healthy life because:

I want to be able to offer my family, friends and maybe future spouse and possibly children the best me I can be. I need to take care of myself before I can fully take care of others. (and wearing a sexy dress probably could help in the future spouse department! :) )

Healthy habits that work for me:

  • Getting involved in group exercise classes @ the gym. (LOVE to Zumba!)
  • Being mindful of the importance of drinking water, and actually drinking LOTS
  • Cooking a lot of a healthy meals and having the leftovers available to eat for the rest of the week.
  • Grab an apple for my purse so when I get snacky I make a healthy choice

My favorite activity at the gym is:

Zumba, R.I.P.P.E.D., and my new love, SPIN class!!! And if there aren't any classes available, I enjoy the stairmaster, elliptical, arctrainer and treadmill (with an incline).

The accomplishments I'm most proud of:

  • Changing my view and emotions about food
  • Losing 17 pounds since joining the gym in March, 2011
  • Earning my B.A. in a field of study I'm passionate about
  • Trying new things on my own
