My name is Athena, and I am a student and Stay-At-Home-Mom of 2 children (and 2 beagles!). My oldest is 8, a boy and my second is 5 and a half, a girl. :) I love just about anything to do with music and am studying music theory and eventually composition in college.
I believe in maintaining a healthy body and mind and have been trying to do so. I spent the majority of 2009 on this site and despite incredible effort, I only lost 6 lbs and then regained it over Oct-Jan when I took time ...

I believe in maintaining a healthy body and mind and have been trying to do so. I spent the majority of 2009 on this site and despite incredible effort, I only lost 6 lbs and then regained it over Oct-Jan when I took time off of my routine because of illness that just wouldn't go away. I read The Spark in February 2010 and made a renewed effort. During 2010 I lost 22 lbs, and made it back to the top of my healthy BMI!! :)
Unfortunately, this summer (2011) I mysteriously put on 8 pounds in a month and was gradually gaining more until I hit 12.5 lbs back up. :( I am now working hard toward lowering that, but I only seem to be able to maintain. However I have focused on weight training more than cardio since going back, which is probably why I'm not losing much. I *have* gotten significantly stronger, and I love it!

I eventually want to get back to a size 10 jeans and be *strong* again. Whatever weight I am at that point will be fine. haha Then I'll have to figure out how to maintain that strength without spending all day and night in the gym. :P

I saw that you posted on the Virtual Training page on spark that you were running a 12k on May 1st. Are you running in Bloomsday? If so, I am as well! I can't wait. What are you using for your training plan?
