In late April '08, I turned a corner. After doing nothing to get back into shape after the birth of my son 3.5 years before, my weight had crept up OVER my full pregnancy weight. It was time for a change! My challenges have included more action and less talk (except to send friends to SparkPeople!), getting more than my avg of 4-5 hrs sleep, drinking more than my avg 2 cups water per day, my eating schedule and portioning, and getting more exercise. As I began this project, I typically ate next to nothing all day then had a huge dinner ~11:00 at night. We also ate out often, eating too high-fat then and too much as well (To-go box? What's that?). I was really unfit and got winded doing the slightest bit of exercise, such as climbing a flight of stairs. My metabolism went through the floor due to low caloric intake during the day, and little exercise, water and sleep. I needed a major overhaul to kick start it again--harder after 40! Lower body "went" first, but as I started this I was nothin' but pudge all over. It was hard to believe I was in a bikini 4 summers before. I wanted to feel good about being back in a one-piece!

Fitness Minutes: 4,263

My Goals:
1) I'd be thrilled to be no more than 3 lbs above target (haven't been at target since college).
2) To at least triple my daily water, protein and fiber consumption and sleep--to quick taking years off my life!

My Program:
I've always eaten fairly nutritiously (whole/clean, almost veg), but I've slipped a little and need to get back on track. Major shifts include: *Portion control. *Eating small meals throughout the day. *Exercise at least 3x/week through better prioritizing. *In bed before midnight.

    Hey there,
    thank you so much for commenting on my blog - I appreciate you taking the time to read my mumblings! :)
    You totally caught me off guard whenit comes to fat-burning zones...and you may actually be on to something! I am not familiar at all, but I will definitely look it up and add it to my schedule - it may be that frustrating missing link.
    As for strength training, I neglecte to write it in the blog, but I do an approximatly fiteen minute program every two days, have been doing it from almost the start. It has bee so good for me already - It improves my mood and I have actually started to see difference in my body, too.
    Thank you so much for taking the time, again. I appreciate the help.
    ***Edit*** just noticed your ticker....Congrats!!! You are almost there!!!!!
