Working Towards a Fit Future!

When my husband and I blended our families a few years back, it wasn't like the Brady Bunch. It was seriously stressful, and I ate to "soothe" myself. This, coupled with work issues and other overwhelming life changes the past couple of years have lead me to where I am now: worn down, and close to 100 lbs. overweight. I had lost 80 lbs right before we met, and now I'm bigger than I've ever been!
This is not where I want to be right now. I want to go have fun with my kids, try new ...
When my husband and I blended our families a few years back, it wasn't like the Brady Bunch. It was seriously stressful, and I ate to "soothe" myself.

I had lost 80 lbs right before we met, and now I'm bigger than I've ever been!
This is not where I want to be right now. I want to go have fun with my kids, try new things, heck- not being afraid of falling through our trampoline would be a start!
I might not be able to control all the situations that happen around me, but I do have the ability to control my weight, and my health as well (up to a point, anyway). I need to stop being afraid and take action!

My Goals:
-Lose 10 lbs. -completed 6/12/14
-Lose 25 lbs.
-Zipline!
-Lose 50 lbs.
-Use the trampoline safely with my kids
-Lose 75 lbs.
-Run a 5k by April of 2015.
-Lose 100 lbs, make goal weight!



My Program:
I have gone from being pretty much sedintary to walking 2-3 miles every other night at work. On the nights in between, I follow one of several low impact kickboxing or cardio videos. On my days off, I either take the kids swimming, or do the same videos I use at work (Beachbodymom on Youtube is awesome!).
I am also eating a primarily clean diet, and cook 95% of my families meals myself. Before, we were eating out (mostly fast food) at least 3-4 times a week. I have more energy, am sleeping better, and am losing weight!

Personal Information:
I love to go camping with my family. I also used to hike quite a bit, until I put on all this weight! I'm working on walking longer distances now, and would like to start a Couch25k program sometime in the near future.
I love to read, really enjoy crafting and spending time with my family- including my pug, Mimi!
I'm proficient in ASL, American Sign Language and love Deaf culture. I'm a 911 dispatcher and former EMT, so I naturally gravitate towards a career that serves others.

Hey you! I noticed you had an issue while out walking. Is it one you can blog about? Blogging is a great way to get feed back and advice. Someone might be able to help you get past it.

Take care!

YOU ROCK!!!

Thank you for your comment on my blog. I am getting used to having no hair but it's just really strange and chilly.

Anyhow ! The sun is back & congrats on your workouts of the week end =)
