Working hard to maintain

When I graduated from college in 2005, I realized I had gained about 50 pounds since high school. I really wanted to get in shape and the first step was to diet and exercise. Between 2005 and 2007, I lost that 50 pounds!

Unfortunately I gained about 10 of that back after that point. Although I'm fairly certain most of the weight gain was muscle, I still don't have the definition in my legs that I used to have.

So now the goal is to keep off the weight and sculpt ...

My Goals:
Just trying to maintain.

You get credit for what you finish, not what you start.

My Program:
I am walking on my lunches and breaks at work (15 miles per week), biking, and running.

I should also make sure to do strength training 3 times a week, but I'm not so great at keeping up on that.

Personal Information:
I am from Hartland, WI and live now in Madison, WI where I graduated from college December 2005.

I now have a promising career as a Compliance Specialist for a TPA for FSAs.

I am a newly-wed to a man who I have been with for 4 years.

Other Information:
I am a huge fan of karaoke where I love to sing songs from self-confident women like Alanis Morissette, Evanescence, Shania Twain, and Carrie Underwood.

My favorite music to listen to is punk rock and my favorite band is Offspring. Nothing easier to work out to than a driving beat.

You should get yourself a pedometer, it's really motivating (I am kind of geeky and love gadgets like that... )

Thank you for your comment! I want you to know I didn't start with this confidence and enthusiasm - I built it up by starting with the Couch to 5K program, and then increasing my distance gradually. You could do it if you wanted to! GL with your goals! emoticon

Hi Kitten! Thanks so much for your comment, and you brought up a very interesting point! (One I may have to discuss further in another article, so thanks also for the inspiration! :) Your note that you are making money doing things you hate, but don't see yourself as good enough to be successful doing what you love is another VERY common obstacle for a lot of people. To that, it's not so much about being the best at something, or really even excellent at something. It's more about finding a way to leverage that joy in a way that can also bring you financial gain... and there is ALWAYS a way to do that if you look carefully! Which is not to say that it's all about the money, but hey, we can't get by without it right? I would also say that it's perfectly ok to make a living doing things that aren't necessarily the love of your life, as long as 1) they aren't actually DRAINING your energy, and 2) preferably, they should be LEADING you toward something that will bring you satisfaction. (I have a follow up article on that topic coming up in a couple days - stay tuned!) Have an awesome day, and I hope that your TRUE passion comes barrelling at you very soon!

Thanks so much! And you're totally right. If I wasn't exercising, I'd probably *really* be run into the ground. lol
