Hi! My name is Heather. I am 39 years old and I refuse to let my past define me. I honestly haven't come up with a goal at this time, I'm just trying to convince myself that I really want/can do this.

Member Since: 7/24/2009

Fitness Minutes: 21,064

My Goals:
My SMART Long term goal:

Specific = lose weight
Measurable = 72 pounds
Achievable = No more than 2 pounds a week
Realistic = Absolutely, I've done it before
Timely = By February 2015

My short term goals:

-Increase my cardio to 30 minutes per day 5-7 days a week.
-Weigh in on Mondays.
-Be a happier overall person.

My Program:
Cardio = 21 minutes on my bike in 3 minute cycles.

-1st 2 minutes at my normal pace
-3rd minuted at at least 1 - 2 miles an hour faster than my normal pace.
-Do a core movement every 3 minutes. Only doing this up to the 12th minute, would like to do it all the way up through my entire workout.

-Every Sunday I add on 3 more minutes of cardio per day. I am working up to 30 minutes a day. When/if I hit a plateau I will start uping it again.

Personal Information:
I am from good old Indiana. In case you haven't heard, there's more than corn in Indiana. I have a beautiful baby boy who lights up my world. He is the reason I work so hard every single day.

Other Information:
When I wonder about what my life would be like if I was at my goal weight I imagine a strong and courageous woman who isn�t afraid to face the world. She laughs more. She smiles more. She rarely gets sick. She waves to people she doesn�t know. Her state of mind is a complete 180 degrees. She is energized and she feels like she could conquer or comfort the world. Her hair is shiny, her skin is supple. Her eyes glow with the joy of what life holds out to her. She has the power and the desire to reach out with both hands and take all that is precious from her heart and share it with the world. She has the ability to feel passion, to exude passion. Her mind reaches a clarity it has never had in all of its 36 (or 37�anyone know how old I am?) years. She is bold, she is beautiful, she is strong, she is ME!

    Thanks for your encouraging words on my latest blog. I am looking at the positives right now. I have only been gone a week from my "regular" 40 hour/week job and already I feel better and more relaxed. I never realized how much I hated that job until I didn't have it anymore.

    Bless you for your lovely comment. I could certainly do with a hug. X

    Yeah, I like (actually) being "tight" with my food. Not to the point where I feel deprived, but I do enjoy eating healthy, and there isn't really anything I don't allow. But when I tighten it up and cut out the stuff that doesn't have much of a nutritive value, well, it doesn't bother me, but it does help it not have so much power over me. Plus, my goal is to lose 6 pounds this month (now through the end of July) so I want to see if I can do it! I might not be able to, but heck, why not try?
