I had a baby in December 2009 and then one in March 2015. Last time I lost the "baby fat", it took me two years and a PT and many, many hours at the gym, like at least two hours a day. This time, however, my time is more limited, and I want to focus on health instead of driving myself crazy trying to get to some fantasy body. Heck, I will settle for my pre-pregnancy weight at the rate I'm going.

I want to focus on healthy eating and keeping an organized, clean home for my children. I also plan on taking my children on regular outings. I won't be a gym rat, this go round, because I would rather spend time with my kids. But, I do plan to take up yoga again and maybe hit the gym two to three times a week or do something comparable, like take a morning walk.

My ultimate goals are to get back into healthy movement and continue to achieve healthy eating and exercise goals. Also, I need to get my knees back in shape, as post baby #2, I am struggling to climb stairs.

So, here's to a fresh start and a better, saner focus.

Fitness Minutes: 47,506

My Goals:
My goal is to develop a more compassionate, attainable health plan that won't have me camping out at the gym because I don't have time to do so. I also want to eat healthier without going on a diet. Also, I want to reduce work and teaching stress.

My Program:
My current post-pregnant sane program:

Monday: Insanity Workout (60 min) and Restorative Yoga (60 min).
Tuesdays: 7a.m. Walk 30 minutes minimum.
Wednesdays: Stretch out and rest.
Thursdays: Clean the house. Maybe go for an evening walk, 30 minutes.
Friday: 7a.m. Walk 30 minutes minimum.
Saturday: 7a.m. Walk 30 minutes minimum and Insanity Workout and Clean the House.
Sunday: 6a.m. Walk 30 minutes minimum *Get up at 6a.m., so you are not rushing like last time.

Daily Plan:

(1) Get up every hour and do 10 leg lifts or something.
(2) Track ALL food and drink.
(3) Walk 30 minutes minimum four times a week.
(4) Eat between 1600 and 1800 calories and revisit goal in August.

Personal Information:
I am happily married and have a lovely seven year old for a son and 28 month year old daughter. My husband is incredibly supportive and is encouraging my restart mode. Every restart mode.

I recently finished a collection of stories and am working on a novel.
