A Healthier, Happier Me !

I am a stay at home mom of two beautiful kids. I came very close the goal I set by my birthday. I have lost a total of 21 pounds so far with Sparkpeople's help. I would love to drop another 5 - 10 pounds but will be just fine with maintaining. I have not exercised in a month and want to start back as well as increase my water consumption again. The holidays are sneaking up already and I do not want to gain the weight back.

My Goals:
Maintain my weight and possibly lose another 5- 10 pounds to reach 125. I would really love to tone up a bit.

My Program:
My goals are to start back drinking 8 glasses of water a day, be more aware of my calorie intake, do my basic exercises each night, and walk/run 3 times a week with my kids!!

Personal Information:
I love food !!! It would be so easy to slip up and gain the weight back.

Other Information:
I found this site and started because I need help with these goals. A constant reminder others are going through this same issue and a way for me to take control of my weightloss.

Congratulations on finding Spark People AND for starting running! You go, girl! How exciting! I'll send you a link with a great article packed full of beginner running tips/ideas AND the running program I used to get started in December 2010! I also would recommend you frequent www.runnersworld.com in the newbie runners section! They have TONS of great info! I'm so excited for you! emoticon

*** Update: I have the article but can't find a link for it to send to you. Here's what I used and it worked great. The Couch to 5k is also a great program!
Don't feel pressured to do anything differently than what you are doing now! You are on the right track already!


Run-Walk This Way Start
Finish each workout with five minutes of walking. Then, alternate the following run/walk ratios for 30 minutes.

WEEK


1: Two minutes running/four minutes walking

2: Three minutes running/three minutes walking

3: Four minutes running/two minutes walking

4: Five minutes running/three minutes walking

5: Seven minutes running/three minutes walking

6: Eight minutes running/two minutes walking

7: Nine minutes running/one minute walking

8: Thirteen minutes running/two minutes walking

9: Fourteen minutes running/one minute walking


10: Run the whole time!
