Just like Erik, I'm gonna be the Biggest Loser!!! Yeah, baby!!!
Erik, you are the man!
After a long hard day of laying on the couch, my cat likes to unwind by rolling over to take a nap!
Now I need to work on the lean!!!
While life is but a vapor--here today and gone tomorrow--I'd like to work on making this the best life that I can, and that includes getting healthy.
So here I am, at age 36, trying to work towards becoming a healthy person, a good steward of the life and body God has given me. Truly I am just hoping to meet some new people with like-minded goals and interests, to learn more about health and fitness, and to one day embody my moniker!
1.) Short term: get to 290's by mid Feb. **met 2/26/07**
Mid Term: get to 250 by my 37th birthday (end of Aug)
Long term: get to my goal weight of 170 by my 38th birthday.
2.) Do some form of exercise 4x a week, for a minimum of 30mins per day.
3.) Feel comfortable in my own skin.
Nutrition: I heartily ascribe to the South Beach diet principles as I've found that my body responds very well to its precepts, that being: lean meats/fish, lots of veggies, low GI fruits, whole grains, good carbs and good fats, plus a whole lot a water. It really is a healthy lifestyle of eating.
Exercise: I've got a case full of exercise dvds. I'm using the Biggest Loser 1&2 workouts right now, as well as "Blast and Tone". Strength train 3x week.
Eventually plan to incorporate the treadmill and elliptical into my regimen
Height: 6' 1"+ what's a few more lines once you're already this tall?
Books: anything penned by Jeffery Deaver, or Harlan Coben; A Confederacy of Dunces "my valve is open!" man was that funny...
Movies: all time favorite is Simon Birch
Music: love a wide array of tunes, and genres, but I admit I could never really get into country-western or heavy metal

Hey girlie! Thanks for the quick note! I am so darn glad that you got the internet thing taken care of! Yippy! I am doing much better this week and I am about a day away from a full blown Aunt Flow visit....ack! The scale has been kind, so maybe I was having issues LAST week due to retention.
My hubby is off working out of town for the next two weeks so it's just me, myself and I. I don't mind the first few days but after about 3-4 then I start to get bored! My house stays so clean though! He claims he isn't messy, but I know that not to be true!!
We'll off to get my daughter from school.....12 days left!
