Since turning 30, I've noticed a major dip in my energy levels so I'm here to change that and give the energizer bunny a run for his money.

You can probably tell from my blog entries that I like... no LOVE food! There's nothing quite as calming to me as the simple act of chopping an onion. Cooking is my zen. I don't believe in extreme low fat/ no fat anything. I do believe in "everything in moderation."

I also believe that anything worth having is worth working your butt off for.... Including health and that is why I'm here!

For 2012:

More energy! I'd like to eventually build up to 60 minutes of cardio 6 days a week and 20 minutes of strength training 4 days a week.

Run my first 5k (in 25 minutes)

Increase my overall strength

My Program:
A mishmash of the following:

My Elliptical (Pro Form XP 520 Razor)


Weight training


Tracking what I eat

I'm still working out a set plan but the basics are I am shooting for 6 days of of at least 30 minutes of cardio and at least 3 days of some kind of strength training.

Got a suggestion for me? I'd love to hear it! I'm new to strength training and need all the help I can get!
