I gave birth to a son in April 2012, and since then I've tried off and on to get back in an exercise routine. Without success. My toddler still doesn't sleep through the night, and then there's the constant colds making their way through the family. But even besides all that, the formula that was working so well for me before I had a child no longer does.

But, here I am. Back at it.

This is for keeps.

Fitness Minutes: 9,279

My Goals:
I decided in March 2011 that I'm committed to getting healthy. I'd like to get to a healthy weight for my height, but that's going to take awhile. I also want to improve my general fitness this isn't just about a number on the scale.

I frequently get impatient and want the weight to drop off faster, but I know that slow progress is good progress. I'm not making any changes I can't live with indefinitely.

My Program:
I've been slowly ramping up my exercise. I started at 10 minutes a day, and now I'm at 45 minutes per day, 5 days a week, and a minimum of 10 minutes every day. Each week includes 1:30 of strength training and 3:00 of cardio.

I'm also tracking my food, staying within my calorie allotment.

Personal Information:
I'm Hannah, I live in Grand Island, Nebraska, but I've lived all over the Midwest, plus a few other places. I'm happily married, I have a young son and an Old English Sheepdog.

Other Information:
I love books, and words (language) in general.

I also love fiber arts knitting, spinning, crocheting, and dyeing and carding wool and other fiber.

Gluten free since 2008.

Thank you for your kind words on my blog. I really needed someone to tell me what you did. I don't know anyone in this town, and my mom (my only family) lives 1.5hs away. To give myself a break every day, I declare myself off duty after 9:30pm. Whatever needs to be done past that will have to wait to tomorrow. Of course, if the baby wakes up, I'm back on. But having that 1-2 hours of quiet is 100% necessary. My husband is finally very good about helping with the kids, housework, and cooking, so it will get easier soon. 6 weeks until we move!

I love the hoodie style. All through my first couple weeks post-surgery, I was wearing black PJ pants, with knee-length nightgowns, and that same hoodie jacket. I loved the style, even if the nightgowns and pants didn't quite match (the black pants have little colored flowers too). So it reminded me of that style. :D Like an updated 80s fashion, haha!
