I'm the owner of All Points Fitness Studio in Mandeville, LA where I teach belly dance, bellyfit, Zumba, boot camp classes, and do personal training. I'm usually found at the studio or out for a run...training for one race or another, usually half marathon.
Despite the fact that I work out for a living, some health problems got my weight back up there and has me feeling pretty down about it. I've got about 30 lbs to lose to get back down to my fighting weight :)
To put the hurt on the male of the species! LOL
Seriously, my goal weight is 105 (I''m SHORT!)
I've had some health issues over the last few years and wound up on some meds that made me gain 20 lbs in one month alone. Argh! Now that I'm off them, I'm trying to get this weight off again!
My current goals are:
To lose 10 lbs by the end of April
To have lost 20 lbs by the end of May
To have lost 30 lbs by the end of June
To have lost all 43 lbs and hit my goal by August 1st!
I''m more of an exerciser than a dieter...I eat pretty healthy to begin with.
I eat mostly organic food (I''m not a total nazi about it but I''m pretty bad) and I''m a vegan, although not a strict one (I have an occassional hankering for a big old steak!).
For exercise: I belly dance...a lot. LOL I teach and perform professionally so I dance at least a few hours every day. I'm a Zumba instructor and teach classes at least 5 days a week. I also teach boot camp style fitness classes as well as conditioning classes. I'm running about 10 miles a week at the moment but working on upping that as a prep for my third half marathon. I'm also training for the Spartan Sprint, an obstacle race.
Let's see...I''m from the New Orleans area.
I am the proud owner of All Points Fitness Studio in Mandeville, LA. My studio offers Belly Dance, Zumba, Conditioning, Personal Training, Yoga, Pilates, and much more!
I'm a professional Belly Dancer and perform and teach internationally. I was a full time professional belly dancer for 3 years until I opened All Points Fitness Studio in March 2011.
I'm a single Mom to a fabulous 6 year old who loves to run with me...we just ran his very first 5k race together a few weeks ago! My ex husband is a marathoner and does ultra triathlons, so my little man has fitness in his genes :)
I LOVE to run. Yes, I'm one of those nutty people who actually LOVES running. Its the only time I truly get to myself!
I love to cook and I live to dance! I''ve been known to shimmy while I vaccuum or do a turkish step into the next room!

Stopping by to say Hi from the fibro friends team. Anything you can think of or need or want just ask as we are a work in progress. Fibro is painful but doesn't need to be devastating. Support helps that alot. So post often so we can get to know you and help in any way we can
