I'm a 34 year old SAHM to two young children. I am a pretty healthy person and exercise regularly. Last year I was part of a 12 person 200 mile, overnight relay team and I loved it! In 2012, I am hoping to run my first half marathon and complete my first sprint triathlon.

I'm a 34 year old SAHM to two young children. I am a pretty healthy person and exercise regularly. Last year I was part of a 12 person 200 mile, overnight relay team and I loved it! In 2012, I am hoping to run my first half marathon and complete my first sprint triathlon.

My husband and I make efforts to eat clean. I really enjoy eating that way, but have lacked consistency. I really struggle with the idea that I am "dieting", and it naturally makes me want to rebel. My biggest struggle with healthy eating is that for some reason I feel like I can sneak/cheat during the day when I am home with the kids and since other adults don't see me, it doesn't "count". How dumb is that?

Last year I lost 17lbs eating clean and exercising. I went from 178 to 161lbs and I felt great. Then last summer I temporarily moved out of state with my two kids (without my husband) to sell our old home. It was extremely stressful and since I didn't have a full kitchen, we ate convenience foods for the first time in a LONG time. I gained back almost all of the weight in a very short period of time. It has made me angry because I worked so hard and now am almost back at the beginning.

My goals are to have a body I feel proud of, the make clean eating a lifestyle and to be healthy and strong so that I can do the things I love to do!

My Goals:
Goals:
* Training for my first half marathon in February! First sprint triathlon in June! Second 200 mile overnight relay in July!
* Clean eating as a habit, not a "diet"
* Conquering weight loss obstacles!

My Program:
I love working out, so the hardest part for me is finding the time. Having two young children, one of whom is not in school yet, makes it difficult.

I eat clean (or try to)!

Hello, I just read your profile, and I saw your list of the obsticles you have. Mine are EXACTLY the same, it was like I could have written that myself.

Anyway, good luck with your goals. :) emoticon

Hi there! I just saw your post on Mommy to Wowwy so I checked out your page. You have a beautiful family! I wish you the best on your goals. I really like that you have the obstacles to weight loss listed in your signature--I can totally relate to all of them (maybe the pop/desserts one the most!!). Hope to see you around the site! You can do it!!

Hi! We've had similar experience as far as children goes. My daughter was born May 16, 2006 and my son Sept 5, 2007. Saw you in October 2007 mommies and thought I would say, 'hi'. Oh, and I was a sugar junkie too ;-)
