I am a 27 year old diabetic graphic designer. I have a wonderful husband and a smart little 5 year old son, and I thank God everyday for the blessings that He has given to me. I went from a very physical job to a desk job and put myself through college (2 years for a 4 year degree). My weight and physical fitness became an issue because I had a sedentary lifestyle and stopped being careful about what I ate. I want to be healthy and fit for my family, and change my lifestyle to keep my health on track.

On July 7th, I reached my goal and entered Maintenance Mode. I am having an interesting time learning to balance my fitness and calories to keep my weight steady instead of to lose weight. Getting in all of my calories on a vegan, whole foods diet without overstuffing oneself is hard, but I will do it!

Member Since: 5/28/2011

Fitness Minutes: 38,987

My Goals:
I want to lose the 15 pounds that I recently regained (total 75 pounds lost) in a healthy way that I will be able to maintain for the long haul.

I want to be in the best shape of my life.

I want to grow closer to God as I make this journey because He is my strength.

My Program:
I work out at home and outdoors as much as I can. No gym for me!

Right now I am really enjoying the Peak10 workout dvds and mixing in some FIRM and Shiva Rhea yoga dvds. When I'm able to, I really enjoy jogging, trail running and doing intervals on the track.

I do about 45-60 minutes of cardio 6 times a week and strength training 2-3 times a week.
