I'm a 37 year old mom of one with a family to take care of, a career I enjoy and ready to take it to the next step to care for myself!

Member Since: 9/27/2007

Fitness Minutes: 1,318

My Goals:
My goals have been evolving. I have been doing regular exercise for the past year, and while my waistline has shrunk what I seem to think is a minimal amount, my health has improved tenfold. I ran my first 5k this fall, ran a 4 mile race on Thanksgiving and my pulse has dropped from being in the mid 90's to a pretty steady low 70's. However...

My next goal is to look good at my parents renewal of vows in Vegas for their 30th wedding anniversary in March. I need to start doing SMART exercising and SMART eating to get to the next level.

My Program:
To take my healthy lifestyle to the next level, I need to start being smart (not impulsive) about my program. I want to keep up the 5 days a week of 30-45 minutes of cardio...but I want to start adding strength training to the mix. In addition to this, I want to start reading/learning what foods and fuels will help me facilitate the lifestyle I want. I'm not in this just to lose a million dollars...time and wisdom has shown me that there is a better way to do this and I need to have the reserve and strength to do it the right way and not fall back into starvation and excruciating exercise to accommodate a quick (but temporary) result.

Personal Information:
I'm a mom first and foremost. I spent time pretending to be the person I wanted my daughter to see me as, and slowly, I became that person. I'm also a (pseudo) housewife and a career lady. Jack of all trades. ;)

...but really, aren't we all? :)
