My Goals:
New Goals - 3 years later since I last did goals here and my outlook on healthy life style is a lot more realistic than they were 3 years ago. Boy was I naive. 2 years ago is when I REALLY started my journey and I have achieved sooo many of my goals. My goals today (4-12-13) is to loose 10 pounds by the end of summer. I am already down 30!!! After that I don't think it will be hard to maintain because I am in the gym 4 days a week faithfully and I want to inspire and encourage others to achieve their weight loss goals...The right way through hard work and determination.

Old Goals- My goals. There are so many goals I have I will just stick with my health for now. I want to get into the habit of working out at LEAST 4 days a week. This website is AWESOME at helping me start and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Since starting on here a few weeks ago I have cut back on fried foods about 90% (gotta have the fries). Eventually I will cut the

My Program:
The biggest part of my program is eating healthy because without a healthy diet non of the other stuff really matter.

My training consists of weight training - lots of squats, lunges and step up for legs and a variety of arm workouts. I increase my intensity and weights every 4 to 6 weeks.

Cardio is another part of my training. On the day I weight train my legs, I prefer to do low impact cardio. The days I weight train my upperbody, I go for the stair master, jump rope or something more high intensity. Mixed in with with cardio and weights I also focus on abdominal excersise.

I believe in rest days after 2 or 3 days of high intensity workouts. Every 8 weeks I take a week off to let my body rest and fully recover.

With all of the above combined, my body has transformed in ways I didn't imagine was possible. With all of the with

I am a full-time worker and a full-time single mother. I am extremely driven, motivating, competitive and compasstionate, along with a lot of other great qualities. I try to be as worry free as life will let me.

Other Information:
I LOVE to dance. Dance is my sport of choice and I incorporate that in my workouts as well. As a tradition for my family, every Saturday and Sunday morning when the kids and I wake up. I will blast some fast paced music and we will dance and clean, dance and cook, eat our breakfast and dance some more. Music is a big part of our life and we listen to EVERYthing from classical to hip hop to country and R&B. When you are a dancer there are NO limits to the music you learn to love.

    just checking in to say hello. As you can tell today was a bad day. I eat all my calories in one sitting. But I'm learning little by little not to do that, but it will take a little until I get it right. Hope you are doing well and talk to you soon. Have a great week!

    Thank you so much for leaving a comment on my blog. You are so right, tracking food makes you realize how many calories you are eating. This is the reason why this week I noticed and paid attention to what I was eating. I know some of the food I did not track, because I was so shock how many much calories I was consuming, but next week I will do a better job. You are so right about losing weight and how much it sucks. But if I want it, I need to do something about it. Thanks and stop by anytime by my page.

    Thank you so much for your comments left on my page.

    You asked how I was able to achieve my goals. Of course, we are all skeptical when trying out new things of this nature and so very different from one another - the 1st couple of weeks I dipped my feet in slowly, just changing a couple of things. I started experiencing changes w/in myself that 1st couple of weeks and being that I'm very mind driven - I then jumped right into it.

    My best advise is to try keep w/in the ranges that SP sets for you. Definately drink plenty of water (giving up the Soda was the best thing I did). Keep track of your measurements as well as weighing (For me, I noticed when the scale didn't move, usually the measurements were & it was just a gratifying). Remember, that every little step you take can lead to a big change (whether it's the weight itself or just becoming healthier). Good Luck to you and I am here to help the best way I can if you need help.
