Be Fit to Live, Don't Live to be Fit

I'm a 41 year old mother of two in Sacramento, CA. I LOVE to strength train, and am learning to love to run.

Through weight training since 2007, I have lost about 50# without serious dieting. Now, I know I can't slack off, and if I want to get down to my goal, I am going to have to eat healthy. Consistently. THAT'S the HARDEST thing for me to do!

My Goals:
I WOULD like to say I want to do it to have more enery to play with my kids (done!) would like to say that I do it for my health (luckily, healthy!) Let's just say I'm VAIN and would like to wear jeans that fit my ass, and not my belly.

My Program:
I strength train at least 3x a week with my husband, and am running up to 5x a week.

Every so often, my friend Nigel (my trainer) will kick my butt with a workout, designed to up my anaerobic threshold, so I can run stronger.

Also am incorporating yoga 2x a week to counteract all the shortening of the muscles I do.



NOW, comes the hard part. Portion control. I love how this site not only lets me track calories, but carbs, fat, and protein (and anything else) as well!

Other Information:
I'm currently in Sacramento, married to my soulmate, Rob. We've got two fantabulous kids, Taylor & Logan.



Over the past three years, I've finally taken an interest in my health again. Other than Rob, my partner in crime is Nigel who acts as my carrot. After multiple trainers, he's the only one who has been able to keep me motivated top get stronger by not killing me in the process. Sometimes the going is slow, but I know I'm gonna stay this way because it is. I've found that being active again is good therapy, and having someone good to talk to is equally helpful.

I have been MIA for some time. Having a hard time working, kids, house, homework,bills, yada... yada... and still have time to come to the site and comment, track, etc... I was gungho the first two weeks and now, true to my pattern, I am tempted to leave it behind and turn back to my old ways. The honest truth. But, I am not judging myself (like I used to) so I think that is progress. I'll be back. I have to figure out how to balance it all. One interesting thing is I seem to have clarity, motivation, etc when I stay away from sugar (BUT IT'S SOOO HARD TO TOTALLY AVOID, ESPECIALLY W/KIDS!!!) so what I notice is when I get it back in my system, it's like my evil alter ego... I just start eating whatever I want, whenever I want and not always the best choices. I literally seem to change overnight in my thinking, energy, etc... hum...??? I am at a stage where understanding my patterns is helping me to try and break free of them, but sometimes, I think that's a mechanism too! How was your week???

I have done great. I have been doing Insanity with my 14 y/o. He helped me to push through it. I have completed two days now. I think I will be able to do this. I have eaten very well over the last week or so. Glad to hear the super bowl didn't kill you. If you fall off the horse you can always get back on. Good luck.
