After a little less than a year, with the help of my Spark friends and Jenny Craig, I lost the 52 pounds I'd wanted gone baby gone! Now I have the challenge of maintaining, of making healthy habits a lifestyle change instead of just a fad diet. It's a challenge, but I'm working on it, and one thing I've learned is that I can do it if I put my mind to it!

Member Since: 3/25/2008

Fitness Minutes: 36,462

My Goals:
Maintain, maintain, maintain - and make sure it's part of my life. I also need to incorporate exercise as a normal part of my day.

My life schedule has altered dramatically - I watch my young niece and nephew during the day and work retail at night, so I get little sleep and little time to exercise. I'm working on carving out time to handle the chores (laundry, dishes, etc.) while also getting time for what i enjoy (computer time, television and reading time) and time to exercise and plan my day. I'm definitely learning the value of nap time!

My Program:
I still talk to my awesome Jenny Craig consultant, although we speak once a month now instead of every week. I still order JC food now and again, because I like the food, and they have some great options for people with little time.

Personal Information:
My name's Katreniah (big surprise - I love my name, so I'm also using it as my handle). I love reading and television, and I'm a huge fan of multitasking. For example, I love hula hooping while I watch some of my programs. I highly recommend the exercise. I currently live in Maryland but was born in Virginia. I've also lived in Ohio (for about 2 years of college), New York City, and Anchorage, AK. I love to travel and do it as much as I can.

Other Information:
I currently live with my sister and help her and my brother-in-law with the kids. It's been a win-win situation all 'round.

    re: stand-up desk...

    I've worked in a few offices that have the design I posted on the Community Feed page. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this desk! It easily adjusts to any height. The office I worked in this week had a mat (kind of like the ones you put in front of your sink at home) to provide some cushion to what is basically a concrete floor.
    The company that I work for is now only offering this type of desk to new locations/office upgrades.
    The downside for some is a lack of storage space, but it's easy to add a credenza with additional storage areas when needed. I actually kind of like the lack of storage...discourages hoarding, which I see in some locations (I am recently semi-retired; now I fill in as needed for people on vacation/sick leave).

    Edited to add - comfortable shoes??? I pretty much only wear flats or low heels these days. Today I am wearing some low heeled boots. Dressy enough for work; comfortable enough to climb my daily 25 flights of stairs & walk the dog this morning before work
