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.

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.

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!

Yes, definitely something Hannah. I remember those days. He's almost two now right? Hopefully you can find a way to either get him to leave you alone for short bits, or to turn exercise into a game for the two of you together. And, you know, intervals suck, but when you have only tiny blocks of time... *sigh*

I know you know this already, but I can't tell you just how happy it makes me to see you here again!! I've really missed you.
