Mama Wants Her Body Back!

Howdy!

My name is Desiree! I am a 36 year old girl from the Napa Valley. I have always been active, fit and healthy... and for the most part, haven't complained too much about my body. Over the years, I have been able to maintain my figure by running and riding horses. And then... I got preggers! I had a beautiful baby girl in August of 2009 and joined Spark People about a month later, determined to lose every single pound I had gained during my pregnancy. I went from a fit 127lbs ...

Over the years, I have been able to maintain my figure by running and riding horses. And then... I got preggers! I had a beautiful baby girl in August of 2009 and joined Spark People about a month later, determined to lose every single pound I had gained during my pregnancy. I went from a fit 127lbs to a whopping 173lbs (YIKES!) by the end of my pregnancy! After having my daughter, I came to Spark (weighing 158lbs) in hopes of finding the support I needed to get my body back. And not only have I almost reached my goal (Go, ME!), but I have made some truly amazing friends who have been here for me every step of the way. This journey would not have been possible or HALF as much fun without them!

Today, I am back down to a size 2/4 and I'm continually working to lose those last few pesky pounds that seem to be hanging on for dear life (stubborn little things, aren't they?). I'm excited to be here and I look forward to many more days of sparkin'!

SparkPoints: 20,963

Fitness Minutes: 23,038

My Goals:
Get back into shape after having a baby (and gaining 45 lbs!), maintain a healthy diet (increase my protein and fresh veggie intake!) and ultimately feel great about my body again!

My Program:
I'm sticking to the same fitness plan I followed pre-pregnancy. I'll be hitting the gym for some weight training, elliptical and spinning. And I LOVE anything outdoors... Horseback riding, running, bicycling, walking and hiking!

As far as food, I love it! And I'm Italian so I'm all about the carbs... But I don't tend to do well when I have to follow a strict diet, so I will basically be eating what I want while focusing on healthy foods and WATER, WATER, WATER!

Personal Information:
I'm a lucky girl! Married the love of my life in '08 and had a perfect baby girl in '09. We have a wild mustang named Trigger and a German shorthaired pointer named Wiley... LIFE IS GOOD!

Other Information:
Useless information... I have a serious talent for Guitar Hero. No joke. I ROCK at guitar, vocals AND drums. It's a gift - I can't help it. : )

I have a weakness for Coach bags, designer jeans and Taco Bell...

I love me some country music! Twang!

I am a huge fan of The Amazing Race and Dancing with the Stars. Dirty Jobs and Cash Cab, too! And I love my RFD channel and PBR (bull riding, NOT the beer). Someday, I'm going to live on a ranch in Montana. I just have to convince my hubby first... Annnd... win the lottery! : )

I found out the Jockey Club has a Thoroughbred Incentive Program (TIP) to recognize ex race horses in new careers. I successfully got his lip tattoo verified this morning! They sponsor classes and trophies at some shows. Not that we're ready to show yet!

It's SO wonderful that you have the opportunity to work with horses. They are the most amazing animals. So smart, so kind. I feel connected to them spiritually. Horses were something that I had to say goodbye to because of my divorce. I knew I loved them but never realized quite how much. I'm so happy for you. And jealouse ;) Thanks for the shoes ;)

Very nice of MTKRITTER!

I did my ST this morning, whoot... I was in a sour mood yesterday cause I felt lumpy and scale was 4# over where I want to be. this morning was much better feeling and scale was down a pound. I'm also coming up on TOM so I'm sure that is part of it, but usually I don't feel lumpy!

Have to figure out something for tomorrow morning. Hopefully the ice on the driveway will melt today so I can get in a run!

have a great day!

Hey girl! Glad to see you back more on the site! My running groups seem to be really motivational. Runner Girl United, Rookie Runners, Jeff Galloway and Half Marathon.
