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: 55,510

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!

    someone gave me this tip for the feed: "At the bottom of the community feed, click on more. It comes up in a full window, and on the right are feed filters. Click on people I follow, then after that comes up, look at the top of the feed for a box under the title "make default filter". Check that and it should come up with the people you follow on the start page each time after that."

    they make it almost impossible to find, though

    Thanks for your comment on my "Seriously Struggling" blog.

    I haven't been very good at commenting on other people's blogs lately, but you're right, you and I have a lot in common emotionally. I'm still struggling a lot with the longing and loss of those who've exited my life this year, but I'm doing better on not translating it to food.

    Thanks for your blog comment, I think it WAS potato chip massacre week! lol

    That was crappy of your former SparkFriend. It's important to me to stick around here even though I made it to goal. I enjoy encouraging others and helps me continue to maintain!

    I'm not very hungry today either. I feel okay emotionally but maybe my body is subconsciously still glum.

    Thanks for your comment on my "insecurities" blog. You're absolutely right, we do have a lot of this crap in common. I can't pinpoint why the last few days would have summoned up such emotions but it seems I'm over this particular glumfest.

    I'm here for you, too, when you miss your dad. I know your dad would be proud of you, too. :)

    I truly appreciate your friendship and I love how you've blossomed in the last year!

    Thanks for your comment! It probably is my sinuses. Everything's drying out here. I'm just staying hydrated and I should probably use saline nasal spray like my doctor says all the time, haha.
