I'm 31 and really want to look the way I feel- athletic! I am working towards more definition on my arms, less fat on my stomach, and thighs that don't touch. My weight and BMI are in the healthy range, but I want to look exceptional as well as be fit.

My biggest challenge right now is that I'm not working (unemployed), so I spend the day doing one of my favorite activities- cooking. This leads to mindless snacking, hence my goal to lose weight. I do have plenty of time to go to the gym, and go every day, but then come home and eat dinner and then snack on whatever I baked that day. Another challenge I have is I have a huge mental alarm clock that says "it is TIME to eat, so eat." I really need to work on eating when I'm hungry and not when I just think it's time.

Fitness Minutes: 1,161

My Goals:
Tighten my body so there is no flab.
Be proud to wear a bikini.
Have skin folds, not fat folds, on my tummy.
Stop watching and reading so many food shows/blogs to cease temptation.

My Program:
I'm exercising 6 days a week at the gym, alternating upper and lower body resistance. I do cardio every day and also take my black lab running a few times a week.

I mix up my cardio with extended time spent at my 80% heart rate but also mix in intense sprints.

For fun I swim or do a spin class.

Personal Information:
I live in amazingly beautiful and eternally sunny Southern California. I am a celiac who eats gluten free food. I'm totally on the organic, nonGMO, locally harvested bandwagon.

Other Information:
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones that you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. ~Twain

I don't want to be disappointed in living my life at a weight that I'm not satisfied with.

    In my blog I was discussing the difference between the various Eat Clean diet plans by Tosca Reno. I didn't write the plans, just reviewing what the differences are between them for others who are not familiar with the plans but might want to join in on the 28 day challenge that I am starting on Monday. For 28 days I did the Eat Clean Diet Stripped by Tosca Reno and it has no dairy and no bread products for 28 days. Dairy has some inflammation properties too it which can cause some bloating and for some can cause some joint pain and inflammation. Since the 28 day Stripped plan ended for me on Monday, I have not put back in nearly as much dairy as I had been consuming prior to the plan and I really do not plan to add much back in, because I love the way I am feeling.
