I am 39 years old, married, and a SAH/homeschooling mom to two heathen boys, ages 15 years & 13 years old. Nowadays, I am actually setting goals for myself and working on becoming a healthier person.

Member Since: 7/25/2006

Fitness Minutes: 1,225

My Goals:
Ultimate Goal:
to be a healthy mama with a smokin' hot bod!

Short Term Goals:
To track my food every day and exercise 3x per week (at least), and drink ALL my H2O!

My Program:
Being aware of how much I am planning to eat (portion control), learning what it means to first of all have a normal calorie range, and secondly how to stay within it, and logging what I do eat.
I've tried a variety of ways to limit myself, and none of it has worked after I stopped logging into SP every day. Eating often and drinking a LOT of water will keep me from between-meal snacking (hopefully).

Fitness and exercise is such a challenge for me. I like doing yoga, pilates and bellybancing, and kids-yoga with the boys, but I often lack motivation, so if you are reading this, do me a favor and leave me a comment to remind me to get to it!

I am currently an orange belt in Shotokan Karate. I started in April 2012 as a white belt and will soon test for my green.
Mar 2012 - White belt
Jul 2012 - Wh/Stripe belt
Oct 2012 - Yellow Belt
Feb. 2013 - Orange belt
Oct. 2013 - Jan 2016

Other Information:
One of my biggest challenges right now is to stay MOTIVATED! Followed closely by being AWARE of food - how much, what kinds, what the nutritional content of each thing is.

One thing that is helping me is to drink a tall glass of water about 10 minutes before I eat.

Another thing that helps me, especially when eating out and dealing with large portions is to request that a carry-out box be brought with my food when ordering and I box half of my food to take home.
