"I'm not pregnant, just fat."

"Be inefficient." --My Aunt

I'm a 30-something mom of two, who has always lived an active lifestyle... until having kids. My mother was diagnosed with weight-related Type II diabetes, and with a family history, I want to avoid her fate, and set a healthy example for my kids.

I feel better. I look better. I AM better.

And I'm only getting started.

This is the window to my life. Join me on my journey to a better ME.

SparkPoints: 57,421

Fitness Minutes: 14,252

My Goals:
I want to teach my daughters to be healthy, active, and live well. Not just fad diet or not pay attention. I want to be healthy, I want to live long, I want to live strong. I want to lose my weight and feel great, and I want to do it RIGHT, so it sticks.

Right now, I'm restarting my strength training program, shelving my running goals for now, and focusing more on my bike and riding goals.

My Program:
Right now, I'm not tracking my nutrition. Over the past two years, I've been making healthy lifestyle changes that have added up to easy maintenance, but my physical program has fallen by the wayside.

So I'm getting back to basics, shelving my running goals and swapping them for my bike and riding goals. I want a solid, full-body strength program of low reps, high weights, and regular (FUN!) outdoor cardio.

School's out for summer, and I want to incorporate active fun with my girls before they venture off into the wide world of Kindergarten and 2nd grade!

Personal Information:
I live in Macon, GA, with my husband and two daughters (5 and 7). I am the Lead Forums Moderator for the Office of Letters and Light out of Berkeley, CA, the sponsors of NaNoWriMo. I never thought I would be a fitness nut, but I'm a total gym rat, love to exercise, and love the feeling I get. I used to suffer from severe depression, triggered by a year-long bout of post-partum depression, but getting fit and losing some weight has helped beat it back into remission.

Other Information:
I love to write, try new things, and get obsessed easily with things I get into, like this whole fitness thing. My husband teases me and calls me a fitness addict.

I hope he's right.

I live for my girls, and they're the whole reason I'm doing all of this, but I've found that it is good for ME, too. If I'm not healthy, they won't be, either!

Years ago, when I was in my forties, someone asked me if I was pregnant--(AND I WASN'T) I should have started a 'weight-loss' journey THEN!!!!

Seeing your page is giving me my motivation back after having a baby! I'm finally ready to commit to exercising. I enjoyed seeing your before and after pics. Any new ones?

Thanks for the blog comment! I think you may be onto something with the sodium suggestion: When I checked my report for the day before my sodium was up. I just need to stick with it and see what next week brings!
