My oldest son is in the army with a wife and baby girl & my youngest is a senior in high school & about to enter the marines. I weighed 197 when I joined the gym in April of 2013... A weight I haven't been since I was pregnant with the afore mentioned youngest child!
My 1st goal was to get down to 177- the weight I was when I found out I was pregnant with him. Next goal was to drop below 170- I haven't been in the 160's since I found out I was pregnant with my second child. Next goal is to break past 160 into the 150's. ultimately I'd love to be 150 but for now I'll take one goal at a time.
I have missed about 4 months of workout time due to a cancer scare. I could not work out at all while going through the testing/biposy processes but everything came back negative and I was healthy and go to go... then I got pneumonia! It's hard to exert yourself when climbing the stairs gets you winded. I've been slowly getting back to the gym and slowly working up to my old routine. PATIENCE!!!

My Goals:
My small goal is to get back on track. I've been going through a cancer scare for a couple of months but all the tests came back negative so I'm back on track. I'll be back to the gym by Monday (Jan 6th)
Overall? I want to be able to wear a bathing suit without a T shirt over it. I want to wear shorts without worrying about "rolls" and "bulging". I want to climb a mountain without being more winded then the heavy smokers I climb with. I want to FEEL as beautiful as my husband THINKS I am.

My Program:
I go to the gym every week day. I use the cardio room- elliptical, treadmill etc. Since I'm laid off for the winter I've taken spin classes during the day and have become addicted! I'd love to add in some yoga but my gym charges extra for that. I also do weight training but I know I don't do enough of it.

Personal Information:
I'm the mother of 3 boys, 33 chickens, 3 dogs, 2 cats & 2 turtles.
My husband and I are the curators of an old historic farm that is owned by the state of MA
My oldest son is in the army and so I've become an "Army Mom". That same son also has a wife and they recently had a BEAUTIFUL little girl named Jayde Khaleesi McIvor so I'm a new grandmother! Apparently the only thing tougher then a soldier is the woman who raised him. Better start living up to that since my youngest is joining the Marines!

Other Information:
My husband and I have been chosen by the state of Massachusetts to be the curators of the Harlow Farmhouse in south Plymouth. We even have our own website:
