Took over 20 years but I finally got it!!!

I've done every diet known to man. I was successful too. Unfortunately, I was a lazy lump and didn't exercise. So I would gain the weight back. I wouldn't listen when people would say that you need to diet and exercise together.

Well, now that I am in my 40's I thought it was time to make a permanent change. I needed to get healthy once and for all. I began watching what I eat and I became addicted to exercise. Shocker!!! I decided that it didn't matter whether I lost any ...

I decided that it didn't matter whether I lost any weight, I just wanted to be healthy. I started my change a year and a half ago. Since then I've lost almost 50 pounds and my endurance is through the roof. Both of which were added bonuses. Still a work in progress which I expect to be from now on.

This is my life now. I am never going back to being unhealthy again. Yes, you can quote me on that!!!

My Goals:
My goal over the next year is to lose another 20 pounds. If I can reach this goal, I would love to get licensed as a zumba instructor or personal trainer for older active adults. I would love to work as a fitness instructor in a 55 and over community or maybe be a personal trainer for women over 40 who want to change their life.

My Program:
I am watching what I eat and trying to stick to a 1,500 calorie a day diet.

I am also trying to burn 2,500 calories a week.

I take a zumba class 4 times a week. I also lift weights or take a fit pump class 2 times a week.

Lastly, I am trying to drink 8 glasses of water a day. This goal is new to me and actually the hardest.

Personal Information:
My name is Tina and I live in Southeastern PA. But I was born and raised on the beach of Wildwood, NJ. I'm married with 2 children.

Hi Tina, Thanks for visiting my page today. I'm back into training, but taking it easy. I still think about that triathlon I missed, and it bugs me a bit. Meanwhile, today I ran 4 miles and felt pretty good. Like I said, I think it was an isolated incident due to overtraining and maybe not enough fuel and fluids that day. Thanks again for your concern and nice thoughts! - Vic

I tore my knee in December doing kick boxing which I did 2x a week and yea I burned calories.. but with the bad knee which is healing no more kickboxing.. the only think I can do is walk, and ride which are my two loves.. guess I got to get faster on that bike.. LOL

That is so stinkin' cute! I love that she won't admit that she's that into him! Leah refuses to show interest in any boy in her school & I'm okay with that :) She's currently in love with Patrick from Fall Out Boy. Guess I have nothing to worry about! I'm glad your daughter's boy is polite though - that def deserves points!!!

Well, those 4 little cookies did make the scale jump up a pound!!! But, since they made me so ill, it helped my mindset... I know I'm heading in the right direction, even if the scale isn't moving as quickly as I would like (and in the wrong direction, oops!).

Kyle was invited to a friends house on Sunday for a big airsoft gun war! About 20 boys will be running around shooting each other - and he's super excited about it! Hope & pray the rain holds off for them... or if it does rain that they don't cancel... first time I've seen him excited about anything for a while! Has Paige heard back about the summer job? Ed is going to try to get Kyle a job at his work in Exton for the summer - he works at a large millwork company and said they can probably use him out in the shop! Kyle isn't happy about that, but it would only be 3 days a week b/c Ed works from home for 2. I think it's a great idea :)

Hope you have an enjoyable weekend!

Your question about the hidden menu at Panera. If you go to their nutrition calculator or even their menu, at the bottom is the "hidden menu". They just don't have it up on the boards when you go in the restaurant. All the items don't include carbs (bread, bagels, etc.) Hope this helps!
