Family Bike, this is our second car.

First 5K in six years for me, first ever for Skif, my husband!

Below pre-baby weight and she is only nine months! This has never come close to happening before.


Happy Face

I'm 27 years old and now weigh 208lbs, my ultimate goal is to have a healthy mind and body with no limitations. I want to be completely fit and healthy before my next pregnancy. My husband and I are also working together more this time, which has been a much better experience. He is starting to see how much what we eat affects his health too.
We have started to eat as much "real" or unprocessed unrefined foods as possible. Finally the weight is starting to come off and this time in a better way. I also do yoga now. With these combined efforts our family has gotten leaner and more muscular.
Now that it is summer we ride our bikes as much as possible and avoid using a car. My kids really enjoy doing this together and we are glad to help the environment as well. We have always only had one car. One day I realized that most of the places we go are within about 5miles from home. It seems silly to drive when you really don't go that far anyway.

Fitness Minutes: 3,037

My Goals:
-To get down to 150lbs since that is the weight limit for the slide on our playground. Stop having to tell my kids I am too BIG to play with them.
-Be able to run and play soccer, frisbee, etc. with my kids for extended periods of time.
-Be able to go on an all day hike or even a backpacking over-night trip.
- Control my sweet tooth and eating habits and not let them control me.
- Eventually be in a healthy BMI range. I want to know what it feels like to have a healthy body!

My Program:
Step #1: Not eat while cooking
Step #2: Not finish my kids food for them
I am adding one step a week to my program. You can look at my blog to see what I have learned and why I picked those steps. I am trying to exercise as well, but I decided to focus more on changing eating habits first. Then get in to some exercise "steps."

    "The one thing all famous authors, world-class athletes, business tycoons,
    singers, actors, and celebrated achievers in any field have in common is that they all began their journeys when they were none of these things.
    Yet still, they began their journeys.
    You are so poised for greatness."

    Thanks for the Spark goodie and comment on my blog! I know it isn't easy living with someone who eats goodies, my hubby does too so there is always something tempting in the house. The thing is I want to be thin, healthy and happy MORE than I want those goodies. I no longer wake up in the morning hating myself and think "darn, I blew it again yesterday". Now I wake up and feel proud of the new healthier me. The other morning I actually woke up and thought "I'm not fat any more!". emoticon

    Focus on all the good stuff - more energy, how good you feel when you are in control, etc. you've done this before and you can do it again. The more you flex that "good choice muscle" the stronger it gets!

    Keep up the good work! emoticon
