On September 10, 2012, my mom suddenly died from a heart attack. She was in good health, there were no signs or symptoms, and she was only 59. Now both of my parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles have all passed. I do have my beautiful 8 year old daughter. I am obese and I do not want my daughter growing up without me. I do not want her to be alone. I must do all I can to become as fit as I can be, to enjoy life with her while it lasts, and be a better role model for her.

My Goals:
February Goals:

*Make it to "One-derland" please please please!! LOL

*Eat healthy home cooked meals routinely and only eat out 1-2 times this month.

*Increase activities with my daughter that require physical activity.

*Exercise for a minimum of 24 / 28 days.

*Increase activities generally (ie outings, cleaning house, etc).

*Hit 1000 fitness minutes this month.

*7-8 hours of sleep each night.

*6-8 glasses of water per day.

*Increase protein, decrease carbs still within my range.

*Be more consistent with my ST program.

*Maintain daily calorie deficit of 500-1000 cals daily.

My Program:
I love riding on my stationary bike right now with the cold weather. I crank up the music and try to race my previous achievement. I also try to work in strength training in the evenings at least 2-3 times per week. I am starting slow and building up as I find balance and motivation.

Personal Information:
I'm 35, a single mom to my darling 8 yr old daughter, and an elementary school teacher. I got into a rut for several years making excuses for why healthy living wasn't "do-able" for us, but am waking up to a new day and getting rid of the excuses.

    You GO girlfriend! I can tell you it CAN be done, if you want it badly enough. I just reached goal weight yesterday, and plan to stay there. It took an awful lot of determination. It took always making the NEXT RIGHT CHOICE. And most of all, it took planning ahead for my meals so I would have healthy choices and "on-plan" portions. I'm so glad to be here and I'm rooting for you to walk your path and join me!!!

    Cheers, Sandi
