Getting back into shape

I am an ex-Floridian-Marathoner finding it difficult to whip myself into shape after moving to New England and having a baby. I need to loose this pregnancy weight so that I can get back into extreme sports!

My Goals:
My goal is to lose the weight I gained during pregnancy and get back into extreme sports. Another marathon is first on my list. Then I would like to get into triathelons and try an iron man competition.

My Program:
I am still a nursing mother, so for the next few months I will start by easing into a fitness routine and cut out the non essential junk that I eat.

Personal Information:
I grew up moving all over the place ("Airforce brat"). I met my husband while in Junior high school and we have been joined at the hip ever since. We went to college in Gainesville FL and sort of settled there until the company I work for moved me to New England. I will always be a Floridian at heart. My daughter was born in Gainesville, FL, my son was born in MA (we'll still convince him that he is a Floridian too!).

Other Information:
I am nuts about Survivor, Hells Kitchen, Lost, just got back into Heros, and starting to watch "v". My favorite book series is the George RR Martin series, "Song of Ice and Fire" (though I am not really into fantasy books overall). Overall I like plausible fiction type books.

Hey lady! Thanks for the goodie. I went on a spa massage and facial on Saturday and it was the best thing I have done for myself in a while. So your goodie is just in time. You are the biggest motivation i have right now. YOU are the hot mama these days, hands down. I want to be able to run side by side with you in your next race. Sounds crazy, but that is my wish! Thanks for coming to visit at the gym this morning. You have become a great friend in a short period of time and I love you!

Wanted to tell you I am in Cape Canaveral today. Ran on the beach this morning. So pretty here, but Hot and humid. That 72 sounds nice, but you can't beat that morning run on the beach. Have a great week!! So nice hearing from you!! emoticon

Of course I don't mind. I am at Broward College in Davie, FL just 10 min from Fort Lauderdale. I grew up down here in Plantation. I graduate in December. I just love it! When did your husband graduate from U of F? I lived in Gainesville in 1987 I graduated with my AS from Santa Fe. My best friend went to U of F. My husband went there in 87 also, but we did not know each other back then. He is from Cape Canaveral and grew up fishing. We have a small boat but it works for us. I just love the Keys. We were married down there. Those are my people. If we could live there some day we would.
I am so nervous about graduating. I can't believe it is going to happen soon (knock on wood, I really need to pass these last 3 classes). A CRNA that is so great. I can only aspire to that. Although right now I feel like can't remember anything. There is so much information.
It is so hot down here right now. Believe you are not missing anything. Feels like 107 outside. You know it is the same every summer, but it just seems like you are never ready for it... emoticon
