Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
In Feb. 2010 I stepped on the scale and saw something sooooo scary. My highest weight ever of 190 due to...well, just being lazy for a year!
I dropped down to 165 on SP then in Dec. 08 I was diagnosed with Graves Disease which is a thyroid condition (now in remission). But I did use the Graves as an excuse to stop working out and eat whatever I wanted. Bad idea.
With my thyroid under control, I'm diligent to working out again and tracking my food. I lost 30lbs since Feb 2010 and I'm now more interested in strengthening and toning. My husband and I are going to try for a little one later this year and I want to be strong and ready for the pregnancy.
I do a combo of kettlebell and strength training with a little cardio thrown in five days a week. Through learning about lifestyle change through SP, I mainly only drink water (plus two cups of joe in the a.m.) and eat pretty much all fresh and organic. I ran my first 5k this year and overall, while in my 30s, I'm probably in the best shape of my life!
To be strong and healthy and make ME my primary focus.
My workplace has implemented a wellness program that has given me a gym and a FREE personal trainer at my office to utilize during the week.
I'm currently doing a lot of kettlebell work, strengthtraining, toning and core work. I may get on the eliptical once a week for 30-45 mins or 10 mins here and there to finish out my workout.
When the weather is nice, I love hiking and taking my puppers out for walks.
I'm married to the love of my life, a firefighter. We've been together since 1998 and were married in 2002.
I have five, furry, four-legged kids who keep me very busy!
I'm a writer/PR specialist by trade and spent five of the best years of my life at Auburn University.
I love Auburn/College football and can talk a lot of smack about it.
I love reading, movies, Pop-Culture trivia, cooking, spending time with friends and family, the mountains, the beach, hunting, nature, a nice glass of wine, puppies, kittens, the smell of baking bread, cows, rain and a lot more.
I'm involved with my church, Destiny Christian Center, and work in the Youth Ministry.
