I'm an Army Wife and proudly stand by my husband..
I just spent the last two years dedicating myself to something I never knew would happen in my life: a college education. I am now the proud owner of three bachelors degrees: Summe Cum Ladde * and associates degree with honor. I finished it all in two in a half years, and worked full time as well. Oh, and I also managed to find the time to get my license as a Nationally Registered EMT.
So..now that all of that is out of the way it's time to get back to me. Through the years I have battled a great deal of weight gain from either poor habits, or bad luck in the health department. I had just about lost all of the weight gain from the second of three thyroid malfunctions, and there I found myself again. Sadly, I am nearing my heaviest weight and not only does it make me unhappy, but scares me as well. I lied to myself about how out of shape and how heavy I really was, but now that I have time there is no denying it.
I am in a sense a medical nightmare (leaking heart valves, thyroid issues, asthma, undiagnosed auto-immune issues) and have no time for extra weight....so here is my attempt to start living my life right, getting back into shape, and eventually with that the pounds will come back off too. I don't focus on the number on the scale.. it really means nothing to me. I want muscle, strength, endurance...and more than anything I want to be in shape, and active again. I miss the days of waiting for everyone else b/c they couldn't keep up with me. When I get there.. I know that pair of jeans and dress will look better as well.
I really don't have specifics in mind. I want to fit into a smaller pair of jeans, but don't focus on a certain number.. I just want to put on a pair, and feel sexy and confident.
I don't have a certain number on the scale that I think I HAVE to see. I was 150 before, and I think I actually look better than I did then b/c of the muscle.
I do have the goal to run. I love running, and getting it all out...but I am bad at distance so yeah, eventually I want to be able to say I ran an entire 5k.
I want to eat healthier, and put less junk in my body.
I want to feel confident, strong, and energetic.
I would also really like to stop being referred to as the girl with the pretty face. We ALLL know what that means.
Hit the gym 5 times a week, for 2 hours a day when possible..
Mixing cardio, strength training and even some classes such as Yoga and Dance Blast for fun.
I love working out...so just having fun is good for me.
I am trying to cut back on the junk, and start eating more healthy foods.
Just an FYI: Without ME it's just Aweso :) I mean, after all I am the awesomesauce.
