My name is Jenna and I just turned 31. I came to a few hard truths about myself recently, the main one being that I want to be healthier and feel comfortable and pretty in my own body again. I used to be thin years ago but due to inactivity and bad eating habits I slowly began gaining weight. I was also diagnosed as Bipolar years ago and the meds added to the weight gain. I've come to the point where there is no more looking back, no more waiting on the sidelines. If I want to lose weight and get into shape I have to take the bull by the horns and actually work for it. The only thing holding me back was myself and my fears. So look out world here I come!

Our lives are not determined by what happens to us but by how we react to what happens, not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life. A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes. It is a catalyst, a spark that creates extraordinary results. ~Anonymous

Fitness Minutes: 1,323

My Goals:
I want to lose at least two pounds a week. My goal is to workout no less than 5 days a week for 1 hour a day. My goal for calories is to burn at 2000.

My Program:
A friend of mine has decided to work out with me some. I work 40 minutes at least on the treadmill, 20 on the bike and as long as we can on the elyptical. Did I mention I suck at that last one?? We also stick in zumba workouts and the WII Fit Plus workouts to shake things up.

Personal Information:
My name is Jenna. I'm 31 and reside in Baton Rouge LA. I'm an artist and a writer. I love trying new things, I was even a stand up comic at one point. lol... I have an extreme passion for music, everything from classical to hard rock. Some of my fave bands are Papa Roach, Within Temptation, Kelly Clarkson, Taylor Swift, and anything 80's. My day isn't complete without me having a cd or the radio on. I'm also a huge movie buff. Comedies such as the Lethal Weapon series and horror like Nightmare on Elm Street (the original). I also love to read. I like old school Stephen KIng, Laurell K Hamilton and yes the Twilight series. My view on life is to live life to the fullest and be sure to smile and laugh at least once a day.

Other Information:
"Willpower is the key to success. Successful people strive no matter what they feel by applying their will to overcome apathy, doubt or fear." - Dan Millman

Change has a considerable psychological impact on the human mind. To the fearful it is threatening because it means that things may get worse. To the hopeful it is encouraging because things may get better. To the confident it is inspiring because the challenge exists to make things better. ~King Whitney jr

"I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together." ~Marilyn Monroe

    Sometimes you fall before you can fly.
    In my case I had to stumble in the dark,
    fall on my face, and get up again.
    Only to walk into a wall. emoticon
    emoticon Motivation is the Key! emoticon
    Keep Sparking! emoticon

    If you learn something with every fall. I must be getting really smart.
    I am on my way to success! emoticon

    emoticon Doing Great so far on the detox. I still have the demon come to me in the evening saying come on eat something. I am here. in your kitchen. come on. you can start again tomorrow. Well I am done listening to that demon. I enjoy getting up in the morning knowing that I said no to that Demon. Losing is not easy, anything worth really having is not easy. So I am saying NO NO NO! emoticon and feeling better about myself daily. that is a great reward the next reward is that I am wearing pants I could not wear a week ago. YEA! Keep Sparking and don't let that Demon win. You can do it. I know you can. Looking forward to a blouse that almost fits. Staying off the scale. till my detox is over. emoticon
