Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
I've never been on a diet before, but after starting my own business last year, I've stopped exercising and started to get stressed out.
I also got married last year, which means someone loves me no matter what... a huge problem when it comes to keeping in shape.
I tend to get thin when I'm depressed and fat when I'm happy, and I am like perfectly content right now. Which means that last week the ass ripped out of my pants when I bent over in the grocery store. I know. So stereotypical.
So, long story short, I've gain a solid 15 pounds in just six months, mostly in my stomach - a stress baby.
I used to go to the gym 5-6 times a week, and really enjoyed it, so I'm looking to get back into the habit. I also used to drink less, which I'm going to look into as well. I already eat a healthy diet, but could probably eat a lot less.
See this leaf? It's going to get turned the F&%$ over.
- lose 15 pounds gradually, then maintain my goal weight.
- get back in the gym, with a special focus on weight training.
- find a place where I am comfortable and stay there.
- eat between 1200 and 1400 calories a day, using as few processed foods as possible.
- work out five times during the week, with a nice combo of cardio and weights.
- get adventurous on the weekend, with some challenging hikes with my husband and dog
-limit my alcohol intake to something reasonable... TBA.
I live in beautiful Missoula, Montana with my two cats, my dog, and my loving husband.
I am a writer.
I love to eat and drink, which has proven to be a problem, according to my jeans.
I'm 5'4 and 130 pounds.
I'd like to get down to 115, the weight I've been for most of my adult life.

I just wanted to say that your wedding hairdo looks so cute. You look so happy in that picture! A city hall wedding is really the way to go, I think. My fiance and I decided that Las Vegas would be an inexpensive and stress-free way to get hitched... but it's turning out to be nearly as costly and aggravating as a "proper" wedding.
Anyway, take care!

A city hall wedding! That's what I'm talking about.
I got married in a courtroom, and it cost $37.50. Best ceremony ever.
