I'm a busy mom of three kids. I've seemed to have turned a corner now that two are in school- my time is more flexible and I'm resolved to getting back to my old self- or a better version of me, at least!

I'm finding it incredibly difficult to lose weight. Is my metabolism at 32 really that bad? I have hypothyroidism, but that's being controlled with medication. I find the only way to make progress is to be diligent, presistant and choose to continue with the journey- however slow.

My mantra seems to be... it's better to keep making healthy choices even if you don't see immediate results. Eventually my body will move forward.

I find if I keep the big picture of things in mind, I am seeing progress. I really want FAST and IMMEDIATE results- but those just don't work for me. I've tried. When I look at the big picture I find that I am losing (on average) a pound per week. It doesn't feel like it when it's all in my regular fluxuation- but it's true.. the weight is coming off.

And even if I only lose 4 pounds per month- that's still 4 new pounds per month and I'll be greatful by next summer that I stuck with it.

My Goals:
My goal is to keep weight loss at or above 1 pound per week. I track and exercise about everyday.

My Program:
Currently trying carb cycling. Will probably implement on a regular basis. Hopeing to start Turbo Fire after the New Year when I can really dedicate the time.

Personal Information:

Other Information:
I really enjoy traveling, my most recent short trip was to Brazil.

I also would like to get into running, but it's hard to find the time to run with little ones around. My husband has run a few trail runs, so my hope is to drop some weight and join him next year!

    I’m just cruising around cheering folks through their journey to health!

    “Fight one more round. When your arms are so tired that you can hardly lift your hands to come on guard, fight one more round. When your nose is bleeding and your eyes are black and you are so tired that you wish your opponent would crack you one on the jay and put you to sleep, fight one more round – remembering that the man who always fights one more round is never whipped.” ~ James Corbett

    “If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results.” ~ Jack Dixon

    “It does not take much strength to do things, but it requires great strength to decide on what to do.” ~ Elbert Hubbard

    Have a healthy week!
