Fitness Minutes: 233

My Goals:
- Get healthier.
- Eat more fruits and veggies.
- Make time for regular exercise.
- Lose weight.
- Be a good role model for my little girl!

My Program:
Right now, I have gone back to counting points the Weight Watchers way. I have found that I tend to eat too many starches and processed foods even when staying within my prescribed calorie/nutrient ranges, so I need to be careful of that.

Exercise-wise, I am trying to fit little bits in every day. I park as far as I can from the building at work, take the stairs and the like. I have a treadmill, and my goal is to use it more days than not during the week. I need to get over the uncomfortabeness of exercising in front of my husband and work out a little while I am watching TV.

Personal Information:
I live in Austin, Texas, with my husband, daughter and two dogs. My husband is a blacksmith and does ornamental metal and iron work.

My daughter Anna was born April 3,2006. She is a very happy baby and one of my greatest pleasures.

I am 5'9" and weigh 270 (as of 07.06.08). My STG is 250 and my LTG is 180.

Other Information:
Favorite movie:
Too many to call just one. I love Raising Arizona, The Princess Bride, The Blues Brothers, Hairspray, Undercover Brother, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back and a whole host of others.

I listen to all and every kind of music. I have every Eagles, Chris Isaak and Outkast CD. See, quite a variety. Between my husband and me, we have well over 400 CDs.
