Starting Up Starting Over, the Sequel

Here we go again... this time my weight is at an all time high of 195! That's only 2 pounds less than my highest pregnancy weight. I was here on spark back in 2008 and had some success. Then I was incredibly blessed by being hired as a full time teacher. As this was my first year teaching my own class I worked from 6:30am to 7 or 8 at night, as well as on the weekend. So, of course no time to worry about what I was eating, no time for exercise. All my spare time went to my husband and ...

So, of course no time to worry about what I was eating, no time for exercise. All my spare time went to my husband and two young daughters. It's all such a balancing act! So, now I'm back trying to throw a new fitness goal into the mix. A little bit depressed, a bit more motivated and a whole lot pissed, all mixed together just might do it this time!

That was back in 2010. Now I'm back yet again, but that's good, right? So, it's April of 2012, what's different this time I can't really say. Maybe the fact that I turned 40 this year might be enough to scare some perseverance into me.

Welcome to the Indoor Rowers Team. I agree with Junepa that rowing is the best exercise because it is a combination of strength and aerobic training and is interactive in that your effort sets the difficulty of the exercise making it perfect for interval training as well as for long slow distance. I suggest that you start logging on Concept2.com to keep an ongoing record of your progress and for the ability to monitor your progress over time. I find this very motivational too. I joined my college team's virtual rowing team and enjoy the competition.

Welcome to the indoor rowing team. Do you row on water as well? I think the indoor rowing machine is THE BEST of the cardio indoor machines, works so many muscle groups and gives a cardio and strengthe workout
