A Healthy New Me

In March 2013, I had gotten sick of being unhealthy. I was unenergetic, stressed, and felt...well...fat. I decided to do something about it, so I joined Sparkpeople. My goal, instead of getting "skinny" was to become healthier and feel better. When I got a Fitbit in September 2013, I decided to use it to eat at a 1,000 calorie deficit, which was actually more than I was eating while only tracking with Sparkpeople.

When I got a Fitbit in September 2013, I decided to use it to eat at a 1,000 calorie deficit, which was actually more than I was eating while only tracking with Sparkpeople.

I hit my goal range and began maintaining in February 2014. I strove to learn how to maintain while keeping a balance in other areas of my life. At that point, I was working out for an hour daily and pushing to the max during essentially every workout.

My husband and I then began trying to start a family in May 2014. I had issues with hormone production and found out in January 2015 that this is likely due to my diet and exercise regimen while losing weight.

In April 2015, after a long round of injectable hormone therapy, I found out I was pregnant. I had an ultrasound a few weeks later and discovered it was triplets! I was completely overwhelmed at the time, but now my husband and I are both very excited and trying to prepare ourselves for the big task ahead as best as we can.

SparkPoints: 36,281

Fitness Minutes: 55,618

My Goals:
Eat at least 4,000 calories a day up until week 20 of my pregnancy, and then follow that with eating as much as I can.

Listen to my body for when I can be more active and when I should rest.

Plan and prepare as much as possible for having three tiny ones to take care of!



My Program:
Eat, eat, eat! But continue to make healthy choices that will benefit both me and my babies.

Walk the dog when body, circumstance, and weather permits for 15 minutes a day.

Be active in some way daily, whether a formal workout video or grocery shopping, etc.

Personal Information:
I'm from Michigan, and I have been married since December 2010. We have a sweet doggie named Winter who is the light of my life. I became pregnant with triplets at the end of May 2015 =).

Other Information:
As a result of my efforts to eat healthier and at home more often, I've discovered a love for tasty, healthy recipes and cooking. I am pretty adventurous when it comes to trying new foods, and I love that being healthy and eating good food are not at all mutually exclusive.
