Hi. I guess this is my way of doing something for myself. I'm a Mom of 4 kids and my health and well being sometimes gets left by the curb. I'm hoping that this helps me to remember to take care of me too.

Had my 4th baby on 11/9/11. I still have work to do on my body to get back to where I was. I want to feel good about myself again. I'm committed and know with the help of Spark People and my spark friends that I can do this.

Getting myself back up to running ...

Getting myself back up to running a 5k...or more. It's challenging finding the time with the 4 kids, but it comes down to making it important enough that I can't not do it...just like eating, brushing your teeth, showers, sleep.

Almost to goal weight, so I'm going to kick it in high gear and get there...and maybe beyond. ;)

My Goals:
I need to lose my pregnancy weight. I'll start with that. Once I get there, my goal will change. I found a lot of inspiration on SP showing me what I can achieve, and I have future plans for that.

My Program:
Before the 4th baby: 40 min a day of combination of strength and cardio. Usually a Jillian dvd and a P90X or 20 min on threadmill at 5% incline.
-watching sugar, fat, and calorie intake
-incorporating foods with high fiber and protein

After having baby, I didn't exercise much. Now I'm training for a 5k, and doing some strength training.

Personal Information:
I'm a stay at home mom with 4 busy kids (ages 9, 6, 4, and 18 months). I have a great husband that works hard to provide for our family.

Other Information:
Nothing tastes as good as living healthily and happily feels.--Jillian Michaels

Being Fit Is Hard...
CHOOSE YOUR HARD!

Its hard to beat a person that never gives up.

Dont be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

Well your kind of all over the board with our macros... but in my opinion way too low in cals and carbs for the activity you listed... Not sure what time you workout so cant really judge your post workout meal. I will say the scale can fluctuate anywhere from 3-5lbs in a 24 hr period due to a multitude of things such as water intake, sodium intake, hormones, emotions, etc...etc... so the fact remains if you really want this to be a healthy journey for yourself you better find an alternative way of tracking your progress because a scale is one of the worse ways to go about it. Your too emotionally attached to the number on that scale, why let it ruin your day when its truly not representative of your progress.

Oh, your little girl is precious and I love the name. But I'm a little biased, since it's the same as my little girl! =)

Don't be too hard on yourself about not losing any weight. You're only 8 weeks post-partum and you have 3 other kids to take care of along with your newborn. Give yourself a little time to get into a new groove and everything will fall into place. You've done it 3 times before and you'll do it again.
