Trying to get it together before warm weather hits!

I'm actually feeling like working out again (at least MOST days) and for me this is the key, besides of course the foods I eat. My main issue is consistency. I do great for a couple of weeks, or a few days, and then not so great. It's so difficult to get a good routine going, but slowly I'm getting there.

When I workout, it's not just about burning calories for weight loss, but also building muscle, being super healthy on the inside, feeling energetic, and having mental focus. ...

When I workout, it's not just about burning calories for weight loss, but also building muscle, being super healthy on the inside, feeling energetic, and having mental focus. Also, I'm eating a Paleo/Atkins type of plan.

This is my main goal... To get back to feeling like my normal, strong, vibrant, unstoppable, REAL self again and it's beginning to happen! WOO... HOO!

My Goals:
My goal is not to just lose weight, but to lose fat and gain as much MUSCLE as possible.

I felt my best anywhere from 120-140lbs depending on the muscle mass I was carrying at any one time. 103 was my lowest and now I'm at my highest at 207 as of 2/18/14.

I'm not sure what will be my ultimate goal until I get much closer to that weight range again. My first goal is to get to 150lbs. That's where I last felt amazing.

I need to be at or near my goal with all aspects of my health by this spring/summer. I have tons of outdoor activities planned, and I need to be back to my strong, muscular self!

My Program:
It's going to be a mix of all of these listed below, in my home gym:

HIIT and TABATA TRAINING ON...
Trampoline
Gazelle Glider

REGULAR WORKOUTS &
HIRT TRAINING...
Stabilizer Ball
Resistance Bands
Free Weights
Zumba
Reebok Step
and... lots of different workout DVD's.

BALANCE and PEACE...
Meditation
Yoga

Personal Information:
Hi... My name is Barbara and I'm originally from the SF Bay Area, but now live in Sparks Nevada.

I've also lived in Charlotte NC, ('96-'01) where I was an Independent Brokerage Consultant. Making a 6 figure income is nice, but when you're only home on the weekends that gets old. If you take jobs out of your tome town, you're living out of a suitcase. I couldn't see myself doing that for much longer, so I quit that to change my life style for the better. I wanted to have pets, and stay put in one place. So I moved back to the west coast, and that turned out to be Nevada for various reasons. I really like it here... nice people, a culture I can relate to, less traffic, DRY heat in the summer and a noticeable change of seasons... just to name a few basic reasons.

I've never married nor have any children. I just never found the right man for me, and I've never felt the 'need' to be married. So for me, since I never married, having children was out of the question.

How are this plank exercises going? Did you get to 5 minutes? (I peaked out at 3 . . . . and then haven't done any since)
