About me? Well, what do you want to know?

I multitask, talk too fast, type faster than I talk, and think too much. That's me in a nutshell. LOL.

I'm a therapist (mental health) working on other certifications, licenses, and degrees. I'm a nerd and won't apologize for that.

I love to laugh and you'll notice in my pics. I have a little (big) boy (born in August 2009). He's done about 12 5k's and one 10k with me.

What else?

Hmm, well I have curves and lots of 'em. I don't remember ever being too small. I was born premature weighing only 2 pounds, 14 ounces, I've been gaining too much weight since then. LOL

I've always been interested in nutrition and health.

I've been on many diets in my lifetime: Weight Watchers, Cabbage (yes I said cabbage), 20 grams of fat a day diet (with a little dial I would have to move everytime I ate food with fat in it), Atkins, etc. Uhm, I'm properly forgetting some.

I know NOW that any diet will work while you're on it.

I'm no longer interested in dieting. This is a way of life.

My ultimate goal isn't to be skinny. If that's YOUR goal, so be it and I will support you. I just want to remain healthy and fit. I don't have to be a size 0 to do that.

My current goal is to lose 52 pounds (as of 4/2011) but if you see my pictures, that loss won't make me skinny.

I lost 30 pounds in 2008 but gained it back in 2009 (pregnancy, lack of exercise, etc)

I like to do 5k's. I did 5 of them in 2008. I did 3 in 2009 (pushing a stroller). I did about 8 in 2010. I plan to do 12 in 2011.

Join me on this journey, won't you?

I tend to look around and read blogs, etc so if I leave a random comment, you understand. :-)

Good luck to you!

    Hi! I am so tired, so fueling up and getting some down time to gt ready for Push this evening followed by a little cardio.

    There is evidence that working out 2x a day is better for fat loss. It's the normal amount I do - burn total of 800 calories, just break it up into two sessions.

    Glad to know all is well with you.

    I have to be at an event tomorrow really early in the morning, so I was trying to figure out how to do some of tomorrow's exercise decided to do the cardio this afternoon and tomorrow I will do the ChaLean Push circuit 1 after I get back. I do two sessions of exercise a did that. I picked The Firm Ultimate Cardio Workout and also did Abs Burner. When you do Abs Burner does it like really hurt? I feel like mid section is on fire - and I never usually get that much discomfort with other abs workouts. Something about this one.

    To answer your question, I have not done Turbo Fire. I tried a sample of Turbo Jam and did not like it, so I am not sure it's my thing. I like straight cardio moves and not dancey ones. Turbo Fire and Turbo Jam look too dancey for me.
    I have Insanity - that's more of my thing,

    Some days I work out both morning and evening. If I have cardio, I might do them all in one session. When I do Strength training, I do two sessions.
