One. Day. At. A. Time.

Member Since: 2/20/2008

Fitness Minutes: 38,544

My Goals:
Looking to drop significant weight by eating healthy and getting active, but not to be consumed by the process. I just want it to be part of my lifestyle without having to talk about it all the time.

My Program:
I have adopted many of the measures recommended by Dr. Yoni Freedhoff in "The Diet Fix." Eating within an hour of waking (though truth be told I've tweaked that just a bit due to trying to get in my exercise in the am), eating every 2.5 to 3.5 hours, at least 20 g protein for all 3 meals, at least 10 g. protein for snacks. These high protein meals and snacks are not quite as easy as I thought they would be, especially the snacks. Working my way through!!

As of July 19, 2014, have committed to at least 10 minutes of fitness a day. I am really doing more like 20-30 minutes, but I have committed to at least 10 to keep myself from dropping off the fitness train for long periods of time.

Committing to something I think of as "me" time daily. It can be as simple as doing my 10 minutes, taking a few minutes to read, or an all out shopping spree, but I recognize how important it is for me to take care of me, and to do something that is only for me. every day.

Personal Information:
I am a lifelong resident of a community north of Boston, Massachusetts. I am married and we have a 12-year old son who keeps us hopping. I work full-time and am very involved in my son's activities, and wouldn't have it any other way!!

It has been a very challenging last 18 months for my family. We have suffered through some sickness and some death. It has taken its toll on all of us, but specifically, speaking for myself, I have to admit I feel somewhat defeated, it seems like every time I'm getting ready to take a step forward, something happens to suck me back into the vortex of negativity.

Other Information:
Love sports of all kinds, but most especially whatever team my son is currently playing on. I am a proud Baseball Mom and Hockey Mom.

    Isaac was talking positively about the dress clothes today. Said he over reacted Saturday and understands why it is asked by the coach. Whew!

    April...she was already on thin ice at school. Their fall back from the beginning was "she's a foster kid" BUT she's been with this family since she was little so it's more like she's an adopted child at this point. However, how many negative marks does one kid have to get?! I forwarded another message to the principal today from yet another girl. Crazy.

    Well Tina.... I'm sure you guys are happy today! 9 to 33 in the early 4th quarter. I say NE should be able to beat Atlanta though in the big game. The loss of Bell early on did not help matters for Steelers at all, but your team is covering my guys very well.
