I'm through with excuses. No one ever gets far with the easy road.

Member Since: 5/31/2009

Fitness Minutes: 12,656

My Goals:
My ultimate goal is around 175 pounds.

My closer goal is 225. My boyfriend and I plan to get engaged at that point.

I'd like to be able to run/jog a 5K, and regularly run/jog outside.

My Program:
Making all my meals at home; packing breakfast,lunch, and snacks when I have to be out long. Working to increase fresh produce in our cooking, and limit processed carbs; especially breads and pastas. I take my vitamins every day.

For fitness, I jog in-place at home with my boyfriend as my gym buddy. We try to do an hour on work nights, and 2 hours on days off. I also use a TotalGym and do calisthenics and yoga, as well as working with kettlebells and resistence-based tools like a Thighmaster. We are also beginning to use Bob Harper exercise videos and a an 80-lb punching bag.

Personal Information:
In this journey, I'm motivated by my boyfriend and my mother. We are all striving, not necessarily toward thinness or beauty; but for health. I hope to be able to get off of all the medications I am prescribed, and to feel stable and healthy in doing so. I am currently medicated for Bipolar Disorder, Sjogren's Disease (auto-immune), Fibromyalgia, PolyCystic Ovarian Syndrome, Panic Disorder, and chronic migraines. I do a lot of research, and hope to be able to solve all of my issues with a healthy lifestyle.

Other Information:
I've come to love outdoor activities, and hope to do a lot of hiking, rafting, and start a garden once the weather is proper.

    Karen R (ADALOUISE) from the Scarlet Dragons would like you to join her this month in the Breast Cancer Awareness Month Challenge! Breast cancer has touched the lives of so many of us, and we all know early detection is the key, whether male or female!

    So before you give the tatas a once-over, let’s get in a workout first! The exercises listed have a modifier with each, so you can join in at any fitness level! If there’s still something you are unable to do, please modify to meet your specific needs! The point isn’t to show your strength training prowess and be the best of the best. The point is to PARTICIPATE! Now let’s get a little hooter sweat going before we hop in the shower to do our self exams!

    S-50 SQUATS (50 Adductor/Abductors)

    E-50 FRONT JABS (50 Seated Biceps Curls)

    L- 30 LATERAL LUNGES (30 Seated Hip Extensions)

    F-30 FORWARD LUNGES (30 Squats, holding the back of a chair)

    E-50 JUMPING JACKS (50 Seated Jumping Jacks)

    X-30 PUSH UPS (30 Wall Pushups)

    A-30 ALTERNATING HAMSTRING CURLS (30 Standing Hip Flexion/Extension holding the back of a chair or wall)

    M-50 HIGH KNEE MARCH IN PLACE (50 Seated High Knee Marches)

    Do what you can, modify what you need to, but try your best, regardless of fitness level! If you’ve got a suggestion on an exercise you’d like to see incorporated into the challenges, please let us know!
