Hi there! I'm 28 years old and doing what I can to live an extraordinary life. 2010 is the year I decided to get back into the shape I wanted after having made varying amounts of progress during the past 5 years. I lost about 60 pounds through the course of the year, going from a size 20 to a size 6.

I'm currently working toward getting into what I consider peak physical condition (and in size 4 jeans now, I think I'm probably getting close), with more focus on body fat percentage than on pounds.

My Goals:
I'm working to get into what I consider my peak physical condition, after taking it easier during the holidays to give my metabolism a break. I've dropped the holiday weight plus a couple more pounds, and I'm into my size 4 goal jeans as of the last week of March. I'm now focused more on body fat percentage than weight, since BMI is now wildly inaccurate for me. I'm currently at about 25-26%, and I'd like to get down to about 20-22%.

My Program:
When people ask me what I've done to lose the weight, my answer is always simple: "Eat better; eat less; exercise more."

I try to stick to all-natural and organic foods as much as I can, and I try to eat a balanced diet while sticking to my calorie range.

I do a lot of different forms of exercise so I don't get bored. My go-to workouts are all of Jillian Michaels' DVDs, Bob Harpers DVDs, P90X, running and hot yoga.

    Thanks for your awesome advice about NaNo - really looking forward to the adventure and getting to know the peeps on the team better!

    Not sure what route I'll take, but am actually taking a class at our university extension that's based around NaNo (starts before and ends after), so hopefully they'll have some good tips about outlining too.
