Starting today...things are going to change!

My name is Melissa and I am back and ready to work!

I just had my second child (baby boy, Samuel) on July 10, 2009. We had some major complications/4 week early delivery and a lot of stress. Although now we are healthy happy and thriving! I also have a 3 year old daughter (Gabrielle) and am married to a very loving husband (Matt). I am here to lose 30-40 lbs of pregnancy/stress related FAT!

Let the fun begin!!

Wow! I don't even remember writing that last comment! It's ok that you didn't reply. No biggie! Sure, we can still be buddies. Can always use more people to keep me accountable.

Not too much has changed since I last wrote this, though I have lost a bit more weight, but mostly I've been holding steady, which seems to suit me fine these days. My DH and I are going to start trying for our first baby next month so we're really excited about that! :) Anyway, thanks for the message!

Hello! I saw that you were looking for a buddy and so am I, so I thought I'd drop a quick line to see if you still wanted one. I'm formerly from MN, but now living in the UK with my British husband. I don't have any kids yet, but I want to be in my best shape before I do start trying for one (hopefully later this year). Anyway, good luck with all your goals! emoticon

I wanted to make sure you see this post, so I'm re-posting it here, too. Just delete it, if you want, after you read it. God bless you, may He grant you GREAT success - yes, may He make all of your efforts VERY successful!!!


Bump UP your calories to 1650 and break them down into 6-8 small meals throughout the day. The more physically active you are, the more calories your body needs. Make your biggest meal breakfast. If that means switching it up from breakfast foods to something heartier like a meal you'd normally have at lunch or dinner, DO IT. Then make your next biggest meal your lunch, and your smallest meal your dinner. Don't eat ANYTHING after dinner. Dinner should be the meal with the fewest carbs; breakfast should have the most. Your best breakfast is going to be loaded with high fiber foods (like whole wheat toast - Ezekiel bread is AMAZING!!!) and high protein (hard boiled egg - quick and easy, and tasty, too!). Always make sure you have more protein with every meal than you do carbs. Drink water, water, water, and more water with a side helping of water. The more water you drink, the less your body holds on to as water weight.

When you do your training for your 5k, add strength training. Start with hand weights and you'll be amazed at how quickly you turn your weight loss around. If you don't have hand weights, grab some cans of veggies from the pantry. You can do this while you're running or in addition to running. All it takes is a few minutes a day to do 2-3 reps of various exercises. If all you're doing every day is running, your body is already used to that exercise and you need to do something called "muscle confusion", which is to switch up exercises daily so your body can't get used to what you're doing (when it DOES get used to it, it adapts and actually burns LESS calories because it no longer has to expend the same amount of energy it would otherwise).

One last word of advice. If you're not getting enough sleep, your metabolism is not going to be as friendly to you. Eight hours of sleep might be a stretch but it will drastically improve your energy, how you feel physically and emotionally, and kickstart your metabolism. Also, waking up at the same time every day and working out within 30 minutes of waking up gets your metabolism working 30% better than waiting to exercise. Your body will actually begin to balance hormone levels and prepare itself for the day before you even wake up when you get up at a set time each day.

If you have any questions on what I've said, please SparkMail me. God bless and good luck!

Hey, Melissa!

No more feeling down, OK? It's never a good thing because it only feeds failure. Take one meal at a time, one workout at a time, one day at a time. You will have good days and bad days, so be prepared.

But I will make a promise to you: If you stay consistent, eat well and train smart, you WILL get great results.

Thanks for stopping by my page!!
