Me with my motivation! This was Mother's Day, 2009
This is my goal. I want to look like this again! (I'm the one standing, the other is my sis)
The love of my life! He encourages me every day and is so proud of me for taking this step!
I'm a 34 year old, mother of two, who is so TIRED of looking like a frump! My kids are at the age where having fun means being athletic, and I simply can't keep up. I'm ready for some big changes in my diet and exercise and can't wait to show my kids who rules the court in HORSE. Plus it would be nice to shop at any store I want again, rather than limiting myself to the plus size stores. Heck, I'd be happy in a 14!
In no particular order: To get healthy, lose weight, keep up with my (VERY) active children, to look good in a bikini again, to fit into my Calvin Kleins again, to be able to shop at any store I want, rather than the plus size stores, and to hike Half Dome Summer 2011
For right now:
- Limiting my caloric intake to no more than 1500cal/day
- Walking 10K steps/Day
- 30 minute Cardio/Calorie burn every morning
I live in Port Hueneme, CA. That's between Santa Barbara and Los Angeles, right on the coast. I grew up here, Virginia, Connecticut, and Chicago, and even spent some time NYC. Hobbies include: hiking, reading, quilting, singing, dancing (as soon as I'm fit enough to do it agan), and pretty much anything that gets me outside.
