MANY MANY things have changed in my life over these last few years I have been away, some good, some not so great, but I take ALL these things as lessons learned and grow stronger every day! :) I have met a man I love dearly (yes, that is a bit of an explanation you will have to check into my blog for details.) I have grown and changed immeasurably. My confidence is at a peak right now even though my weight is not NEAR where I want it to be! I am a much better person than I was a few years ago, as I have undergone some DRASTIC life changes. I am ready to jump on the crazy train and make my way back to where I want to be physically,mentally and strenghth-wise. :)

I am making SP a part of my life until my very last breath, I have decided on this.
SP has changed me in so many ways, it is just unimaginable what this place can do for a person.
This page constantly forces me to take a deeper look within myself at my accomplishments so far mentally and what I want for my future.
Life is definitely a rollercoaster and I will enjoy the ride every minute!:D

My Goals:
To live conscious of what I am doing to my body and what is going in it and the fact that my son will be my "MIRROR" so I have to live healthy every day.:)

My Program:
All the little things in life!
Everything is something in this journey.

Walking, healthy eating, pushups, situps, jumping jacks, jump rope.

I also see my doctor and nutritionist regularly to make sure that I am keeping myself on track health-wise. I TRY to make sure I am writing down everything I eat in my food journal, it's hard some days, but, I notice I do better and better when I keep remembering to write it all down. I also keep a rather consistent blog here to help me deal with anything that is on my mind.

Personal Information:
My name is Leanna. Born Sept. 10, 1981.
If there is anything that you don't know about me from looking at my page and you are curious to know, you may find your answer in my blog, if you do not, please ask away!:D I'm not very shy!:D

Other Information:
Anything is attainable, you just have to want it bad enough!:D

    HI! So I set my new goal. Do you think I can lose 100 in 1 year? That is what my goal is. If I don't reach it, I am ok with that, but I would like to get close. I have three days a week of strength training, then five days a week of cardio, where I switch between walking and dancing (I am trying to learn how to dance again.... damn you chemotherapy!). Right now I am 43% of the way, and the year is only 41% done. Yay mathematics! Breakfast time now. Just thought I would update you on the awesome!

    I figured out the ticker thing! Woohoo! So, I have been kinda sad lately because the awesome amount of weight I lost the last few weeks has not continued into this week. However, I think I am starting to build muscle, which could be the reason for this. If not, I will be even more sad! I also have been sent on a mission from my boss and a co-worker of mine that I have to spend 20 minutes a day doing nothing.... and I have to attempt meditation every day too. They are worried about my stress, and they think once I get that under control then this whole weight loss thing will go smoother for me. Maybe you could try it too!

    Wow. Today's workout was rough! Holy cow. I am doing two videos (I alternate which ones I feel like doing all the time) for cardio, and then one strength training one, and uff da.... it has tired me out like it never has before! What a way to start my week four! Hey... how did you get the weight tracker on your page? I was trying to find how to do that... and I can't find it.... and I would like one.

    I find that I don't really feel accomplished in this game unless I see the numbers on the scale go down. I feel better, stronger, skinnier even, but unless I see the numbers drop, I really don't feel accomplished.

    PS- Yes, Alex has grown into quite the amazing little boy. He is helping a lot with this particular journey, much like he has with everything else that has happened since he was born.

    I don't really drink a lot of soda, but when I do its usually Dr. Pepper Ten or Diet Pepsi O. I mostly carry around my water bottle. For breakfast (after cardio), I usually have a thing of Yoplait light with my vitamin, and I work at the Cheese Corner (we have one in La Crosse now), so its easy for me to eat healthy there (salad, or just a simple turkey sandwich... we have 500 club options!).

    I also found that having the apps on my phone (the daily tracker and the recipes) makes it so much easier! That and, chasing after a 5 year old, it all helps!

    So far, it has just been a battle of making me think differently. Making me realize I have the time to make these changes... I have the time to devote to myself and my own well being.
