Getting back to basics like healthier food choices, plenty of water, and tracking food and fitness.

I'm trying to get back into a regular fitness routine. I'm starting with the 10 minute daily exercise challenge, using my elliptical or recumbent bike.
I also got hand weights and resistance bands for Christmas and I plan to put them to good use! I'll be focusing on core and upper body strength training to prepare the FIT challenge mud run!!!

I love to travel, cook, read, and crochet. I'm also in school, working towards a dual Master's in Nursing and Health Administration.



Other Information:
I've struggled with my weight for as long as I can remember and have tried every diet under the sun!! My weight has yo-yo'd from 135 - 235 since the birth of my youngest daughter 14 years ago. I am determined to conquer this demon!!
