Yes I'm Back, Back Again

Ok, I'm back - again. My goals are to lose weight and overall feel better, as I continue my PhD program and gear up for making babies later this year!

My Goals:
I started this in February, 2006 and I'm on my way to having a stronger, healthier body. I can see the muscles! Overall, I want to be healthier and fitter and fit back into the clothes that I wore in college. I weigh myself occasionally, but hope to gain muscle mass as well as get in better cardio shape, so I am paying more attention to the way I feel and my clothes fit rather than solely relying on the scale.

And...I've recently decided that I want to run a 5K sometime in the future (and I've never been a runner)

My Program:
Eating healthier and smaller portions; cardio and strength training 4 times a week; mixing it up so I don't get bored.

Personal Information:
29 years old, New York transplant living in Florida. Love the sun, miss the city!

Other Information:
Recent newlywed (married August 2005) and current PhD student in Public Health.

I came across your comment on the grad student's science geek thread, and found my way to your page:) You're a PhD student in public health, in florida, you say?? Are you at USF? I'm heading back to school for a master's in public health, and choosing between USF (closer to home, half the cost) and Emory (more highly ranked, and in Atlanta, where there's lots of opportunity in public health, but soooo expensive!). Any advice for me? :)

Hi! I'm sorry it took me so long to respond!! My heart is definitely in health behavior, but i want to be able to influence more systemic/organization level decisions that build healthier environments and reinforce/enable healthy choices. I'm really interested in ANYTHING that will promote healthy lifestyles and chronic disease prevention (esp. obesity). How about you, what is your primary interest w/ children?

I actually don't like it too least so far. I mean it is fun on the weekends but everything else about my life is different. I would do anything to be back in FL right now.

Wow, we are like the exact opposites...I grew up in FL and just moved to NYC. I miss Florida so much and we have made plans to move back next summer.

Also, I just got married August 12 and love married life. anyways, good luck in losing weight. I know I am really committed to losing this last 10 lbs.!
