Mom of two working hard to look good!

I'm a thirty-something mom to two wonderful children, 6 and 3. I lost all the baby weight after my second child was born, but then it crept back on after he was weaned, leaving me at 135 pounds and feeling and looking fat. (135 pounds was what I weighed when I was 20 weeks pregnant with baby #1, as a frame of reference.)

When I was younger, I didn't eat well, but I was thin and fit. I lifted weights 3x per week, and danced 4x per week, so I could get away with soda and cheesesteaks ...

When I was younger, I didn't eat well, but I was thin and fit. I lifted weights 3x per week, and danced 4x per week, so I could get away with soda and cheesesteaks without it taking a toll on my appearance. As time passed...I wasn't working out as much, but my diet didn't improve, and it started to really show. One of my challenges is that I'm a working mom, so I have a hectic schedule that doesn't always allow time for a workout.

My goals were to get back to being in great shape, and this time to do it with a more grown-up and healthy diet. I started running and doing bodyweight exercises to get there in June 2008, and started the Turbulence Training program in October 2008. I've dropped 25 pounds in all, and over 10 inches. I'm not sure where it will go from here, but now my focus is on increasing my strength while maintaining or improving my body shape.

So I googled TT but I couldn't seem to get much info as it looks like it's something you have to pay for? I'll start a thread on the CC page...

Hi there - I saw you talking about turbulence training on the boards and was wondering what it is?

Welcome to the Chester County Team. I'm glad you found us. I'm sorry it took so long for me to welcome you . . . .busier than I though I would be. Congrats on the weight loss. It's also nice to see another local Dave Fan!! I use to listen to him on wcoj. I'm bummed I can't listen to wcoj, but glad I can still stream the show from dave's website. Happy Holiday!
