down to 115 - yay!
my little guy's first day of preschool
I'm a Level 33 mommy (read the webcomic Dominic Deegan for the reference) of an adorable toddler. I'm a lot of things; friendly, weird, fantasy fiction lover, wife, woman...my fitness story starts when I got pregnant... I gained just the right amount for being pregnant...
then I drew the short straw and developed postpartum depression which put me on what I call my "anxiety diet" which ravaged my appetite, among other things, while on its warpath and dropped me down to about 120way too fast (I'm just guessing based on how my clothes fit), so...after some big life changes, including my slow recovery (which I'm still in), my appetite returned and I went back up to 140. Now I'm trying to get back down to a healthy weight the healthy way.
I haven't struggled with my weight all my life, but I found other outlets for my stresses, and anxiety. So I thought losing, or starting by losing 20 pounds would be no sweat. Losing the max of 2 pounds per week, I'd be done in 2 & 1/2 months...Yeah, that didn't happen.
The first five were the hardest to lose and keep off. Then I joined Spark's Bootcamp Challenge. Again, didn't lose as much as I wanted, but broke past the first five and kept going. All the while learning about...well, everything. So I was tiptoeing around the 119/120/121 mark recently, and realized I'd gotten stuck in a rut of sorts. Not a huge, long plateau, but for me, annoying. I also ate the same things (except dinner) every day and tried to do tons of cardio to get rid of everything. Then my little person turned three. My sister-in-law made cupcakes (she's also trying and succeeding in getting rid of extra, unhealthy weight as well). I was kinda active, but not nearly as much as I'd been, and my food tracker made my cringe, though I was within all my limits. And (gasp!), I actually lost a pound! How can this be? I'd tried some new stuff for lunch. So I tried again the next day, and even went so far as to have the last cupcake. Still within my range and the next morning (gasp!), I'd lost another pound! Holy crap! So one more pound and I'll be down to what I weighed when I started college.
Haven't weight that SINCE college so it'll feel nice. I also know I'm healthier, and I'm slowly losing the paunch at my stomach. I want to get more physical strength all over, and want to be able to at least see my abdominals. Not looking for a six-pack, but a little definition would be nice. It'll tell me I'm healthy and strong. That and having the arm muscle definition would be awesome!-
Reach weight of 115, improve my physical strength and flexibility
Using the trackers to see how everything's connected; Cardio: Lots of it! :P Jump roping, Tae Bo, Powerstrike; Strength: SparkPeople toning videos
