2011: A Year of Change

Sept 2009 I made the leap and returned to school to become a Registered Nurse. It's an accelerated 20 month program so I've spent more time chained to a desk and in clinical than taking care of my health. Add to that, I emotionally snack, particularly when I'm stressed.

2010 was a year of health challenges: I was quite sick and injured.

So as I face the last 4 months of my program it's time to re-focus, get back to the baseline where I was. 2011 means starting ...

So as I face the last 4 months of my program it's time to re-focus, get back to the baseline where I was. 2011 means starting a new career, re-focussing on my health, and resuming the habits that helped me meet the success that I had a few years ago. So, I'm back!

Fitness Minutes: 8,165

My Goals:
My top Personal Goals for 2011:

1. Track daily even if I'm stressed, or don't meet my nutrition goals.

2. Figure out an exercise schedule and stick to it

3. Plan my meals ahead so that I'm not tempted to go crazy.

4. Run marathon #3.

5. Initial goal: Get back to my pre-nursing school weight and fitness

Long term goals, after I achieve #5:

6. Get my Body Percent Fat down to between 20-22%.

7. My final reward/goal is a professional photo shoot at my goal weight/health.

My Program:
I'm not following a specific 'diet' but I want to permanently change my eating habits. I'm trying to follow a balanced approach, healthy meals, cooking at home more. I need to work on my eating habits, to stop eating when I'm sad or stressed. Also I'm trying to incorporate more exercise in a fun way, and improve my running pace.

Personal Information:
When I started following this program properly I weighed in at 174.8 Ib in December, 2006. I didn't have a proper body percent fat measurement at the time, but I would guess that it was around maybe 36%.

This guess comes because now that I know my body percent fat I am assuming I have not lost lean muscle as I've lost weight.

March 28, 2007 Update:
CW: 153.2 Ib

Current Body Fat Percent: 29.7% (underwater weighing method)

Jan 1, 2008 -- 143 Ibs. Body Fat % unknown. To be tested soon.

Jan 1, 2011 -- TBD, Body Fat % Unknown.

Good to hear from you - how cool that you're in nursing school! Would be interested to hear how that came about when you have time to share!

Blessings

Way to go on the weight loss! I am doing great. So many changes in my life over the past few years. I still give out that running program you gave me to others. Since then I have done lots of 5k's and 10ks, two 1/2's and 2 triathlons. I love the tri's! Anyway, last year I became a certified personal trainer and love it. I have a few clients and teach a circuit class. Besides all of that - I am getting married in October! So that's my life - how about you? Are you still dancing alot?
