Since the end of Jan. 2011 I have been doing a total lifestyle change to include daily activities such as work outs, hobbies, and other interests that include physical activity. I am looking to lose weight to become healthy not because someone told me to or thinks I should. I am here for ME.

Member Since: 4/4/2011

Fitness Minutes: 53,199

My Goals:
To do an over all lifestyle change that will get me down to a healthy weight and help me maintain it.

General Goals
-Go to the art museums, festivals, and when the weather isnt bad spend time outside.
-Read more fiction. I tend to read a lot of non fiction, its time to imagine! (done - on going. For titles read "other info" down below! :D )
-Make friends and form meaningful relationships based on kindness, positivity, and mutual respect.
-Work on my shyness and social anxiety. :) (In progress.)

My Program:
-Working out for 30-45 minutes 4-5 days a week. Work outs vary from Qi Gong, Cardio, Strength Training, Zumba, Ballet Conditioning, Yoga and Kick Boxing. Lovin my Wii Fit but seriously looking forward to Biking and Hiking in the spring!
-Drinking plenty of water
-Attempting to get the sleep I need.
-Reducing stress through meditation, deep breathing, and focusing on the positive.

Personal Information:
I am a Master Herbalist and Small Business owner. :) I enjoy writing, reading, music, photography, photo editing, crafts, astronomy, collecting bento boxes and Blythe dolls, hiking, bike riding, walking, yoga, wii fit, chatting, and holistic living.

Because I own a small business I can make my own hours. I normally work 2nd shift and weekends with only 1 day off a week. That means my hours and days are way off from the norm. Due to that I find it hard to keep in touch with those in my life or even make new friends.

My Etsy Store: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheHollowGifts?r

Other Information:
Shy, kind, creative. Possibly too understanding for my own good. Ex glitter girl turned domesticated kitchen witch, book reading pagan. :)

I am a Highly Sensative Person- meaning sensative to light, sound, touch, smell, and others feelings. It can be frustrating at times to want to GO but be so easily overwhelmed by the things around me. Positive thinking and being in tune with my body helps me get by!

    I was here, left, and came back when I got serious, and I'm SOOO glad I did. You will be too! Stick around and come back every day!
    Hi! I just stopped on your page to say "HI" and welcome you to Spark. You're in the right place to reach your goals, but promise that you'll stop in every day and log your water, log your veggies and fruit, log your food, log your exercise, and read, and change your status, and post, and log your water, and write on someones page, and read some more, and blog, and log your water, and LEARN that you are not alone, and we're all right here with you! Did I mention that you should log your water?
    WHEW! Ok, I know you're overwhelmed getting to know this site, but use those buttons up there, especially the MY TRACKERS drop down list, and then either the START or MY SPARKPOINTS. Both of these helped me learn about the site, gain momentum and meet new friends.

    Speaking of meeting new friends, this place is like a cocktail party. If you stand in the corner, you won't have as much fun. Make eye contact (or in this place, leave a message on someone's page, or add your opinion to the bazillion conversations going on) to say HI, and you'll meet new friends quick. Oh, yeah, WRITE A BLOG TOO! The catchy title brings folks to your page and you'll meet new friends even faster!

    Coming here every day adds a great level of support and accountability. Explore, learn, and never be afraid to reach out for help. We're all in this together! Stop by at my page and introduce yourself around to some of my friends too! You'll be glad you did!

    Doing it together, success is inevitable!
