Post-Nursing School Recovery

I've started and failed at so many diets over the years. This time, I'm looking to change my lifestyle. I believe this will result in the weight loss I'm looking for.
During the past 4 years I've been working on my BScN (Bachelor of Science in Nursing) at Trent University. It hasn't been easy but my degree is nearly done. Over this time I've watched my weight balloon over 35 pounds. I feel like it's time to lose this weight, claim my degree and move on with my life. Join me in my ...

No, I cannot commit to making it to the gym everyday. I have been making an effort to really increase my exercise for the past couple of months. You can check out my fitness trackers which are shared on my sparkpage to see what I usually do. I usually get in at least 2 good, long workouts a week and then try to fit in a few shorter workouts when I have the time. I was going to try for 5 days of exercise this week, but I don't think I'll quite make it. I'll probably only get 4, but we'll see if I can squeeze more exercise in somewhere.

Sometimes when you work out a lot, you don't see an initial weight loss. I was working out for a couple months before I started seeing any weight loss. I think part of it was that my body was building muscle during that time. At least, that's the best explanation I have heard.

I'm 5'7" and it means a lot to hear you say I look good. I am actually generally happy with my body, but I know I can do better for myself and I am dying to get into the healthy range of BMI. Even though, I do realize BMI is not really all that accurate. It would make me feel good, so I'm going for it. Another 10 pounds and I'd be into the upper end of the healthy range.

Sorry it's taken me a whille to get back to you. You left a message on my SparkPage asking me what vidoes that I use. In addition to the SparkPeople videos, I have these following videos:

* Walk the Walk (is a strength training workout)
* Bellydance Fitness for Beginners
* Dance fitness for Beginners
* Weight Watchers Ready, Set, Go
* Richard Simmons - Stretching to the Classics
* Great Body Series - Super Stomach, Dynamite Legs, Upper Body Beautiful

I also have a stretch band kit that came with a video, but I don't use the video part. Plus I have a mini trampoline that came with a video, but I no longer use the mini tram because I injured my knee and I can no longer take the stress of bouncing on it.

I just like a variety of videos because I tend to get bored easily otherwise.

Thanks for adding me as a friend and for your comment on my blog. Ordering water is a constant for me. Luckily for me, I don't even like soda so the only thing to avoid is alcohol and the more I read on sparkpeople about alcohol, the more I want to avoid it except on special occasions.
