"Life is like a box of chocolates!"

When Forrest Gump said that line while sitting on a park bench, I thought the comment was loaded. Whenever my husband would buy me a box of chocolates, I delighted in biting into each one to savor the new treat hidden inside the chocolate shell. Some pieces were just plain yucky to me, but I made the commitment to eat it with that first bite, so with a grimace, I finished the piece and searched for the yummy one.

When Forrest Gump said that line while sitting on a park bench, I thought the comment was loaded. Whenever my husband would buy me a box of chocolates, I delighted in biting into each one to savor the new treat hidden inside the chocolate shell. Some pieces were just plain yucky to me, but I made the commitment to eat it with that first bite, so with a grimace, I finished the piece and searched for the yummy one. Sometimes I would go through about 2 or 3 questionable chocolates before I found the one that made me close my eyes with pleasure.


My weightloss journey has been like a box of chocolates. From being that skinny girl in class that no boy would look at to being that "cute" girl that could lose a few pounds. After some troubling relationships in my 20's, I turned to food for comfort. To combat the weight, I bit the gym chocolate. That piece was delightful and I eat that one often. I tried the Slim-fast chocolate and that one was tasty at first until I realized the results were not lasting. After a belly full of chocolates with names of diets and plans that were not beneficial for lasting results, I came across the nutrition chocolate. I had nibbled on this piece before, but I had forgotten what it looked like. Now I eat that one everyday.

As I move forward on my weighloss journey, I savor the fitness chocolates that help me so in the end the real chocolate I savor won't be so devasting to my goal.

By the way, dark chocolate is the healthier chocolate to delight in. lol

My Goals:
My goal is to stay healthy, get stronger, and to get to the end of my ticker. I have lost the baby weight. When I got to the weight I was when I met my husband, I was estatic. Now I'm smaller than that. But as I look at my ticker, I'm thinking it is time to loose the freshman 15. It's been 23 years since I was a freshman in college. I can actually do this. If I ramp up my program, I may do it before my 20 year class reunion in 2009. Hmmmm!

My short term goal is to run a 5K in the fall.

My Program:
Diet:
I stick to grilled, baked, and broiled chicken, turkey, and fish. Brown rice and steamed vegetables accompany my meals. 8+ glasses of water on top of other drinks (1% milk, coffee, tea). I don't deny myself a thing. If I have a craving, I satisfy it and move on. Moderation is key. I try to avoid processed foods, trans fats, "enriched" products, and anything fried.

Occasionally I count calories for 2 weeks to fine tune my diet.

Excercise:
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday
Running 3.5 miles
Bellydancing (30-60min)
Yoga
Strength Training

Saturday
Step (60 min)
Strength Training
Elliptical

Sunday
Elliptical
Strength Training class (60 min)
Spin (60 min)



Personal Information:
I'm a married SAHM of 2 boys under the age of 5 from Southern California. I'm a good 15 minutes away from the beach and 30 minutes from the mountains. I love working out in the morning while the household is asleep. That's my 100% alone time when I can pound the pavement, listen to my music, and plan my day. I love going to the gym. Before marriage and baby carriages, I was a 5-6 days a week gym rat. I could easily spend 2+ hours in the gym without a complaint.

"Beautiful Woman Award! Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out"
