Rediscovering Me

Hi. I'm Tracy. I'm 35 years old, wife to a wonderful husband, and mother to a gorgeous 5 year old girl and precious 3 year old boy. I've spent much of the recent years of my life either pregnant or breast feeding someone, or dealing with the "mommy guilt" when taking the time to take care of myself. But now I'm not breastfeeding or pregnant and I'm ready to reclaim my body. I'm ready to take time to care for ME so that I can be there for THEM. It's time to lose the weight, gain my energy, ...
Hi. I'm Tracy. I'm 35 years old, wife to a wonderful husband, and mother to a gorgeous 5 year old girl and precious 3 year old boy. I've spent much of the recent years of my life either pregnant or breast feeding someone, or dealing with the "mommy guilt" when taking the time to take care of myself. But now I'm not breastfeeding or pregnant and I'm ready to reclaim my body. I'm ready to take time to care for ME so that I can be there for THEM. It's time to lose the weight, gain my energy, and remember that part of me that used to LIVE for excercise and fitness. (Where did that girl go?!) It's time to find a better balance of caring for my family and caring for myself.

My ultimate goal is to be a healthy energetic Mom and role model for my children.

I feel best when I am eating a very clean natural diet, with almost no processed foods. I try to stick with foods God created, and stay away from chemical additives.

I'm currently setting 3 goals each month to kick the unhealthy habits and incorporate healthy habits into my everyday life and reach my ultimate goals.

I love really tough, kick butt workouts, like bootcamp, kettlebells, spinning and running. I also enjoy yoga and if I had the time, I could just walk and walk for hours, but usually I don't have that much time alas the "kick butt" workouts. Since I'm just getting started after nearly a 10 month hiatus, I'm taking it slow to start. I'm focusing on walking/jogging intervals, stretching and light strength training for a while. I'll up the intensity when my body's ready for it.

I'm committing to enjoying the journey, not impatiently awaiting getting to the destination (as I've done the past).

My Goals:
My goals are to lose the weight and keep it off, by incorporating a BALANCED, healthy lifestyle.



My Program:
I am eating around 1400 calories per day and drinking at least 4 liters of water per day. Keeping my diet as natural as possible.

I am doing a variety of different workouts to keep my mind and body from getting too bored and avoid injury. I run intervals about 3 times a week, do Body Pump, a "bootcamp/P90x "type class, Barre, Yoga, and Spinning.
I love a good hard workout and the feeling of sweat dripping down my body.

Here we are in 2016. whether you have been on this journey for years or for months, you know it is hard. Natalie Grant recorded a song a few years ago that gives me the strength to keep going when I am struggling. I hope it will minister to you also.

ou are here in my heart
You're the light that guides me through the dark
You walk beside me, the night seems cold each time I fall
Your arms are there to hold

You walk beside me, giving strength I've never known
And I am not alone
You walk beside me
(I am not alone)

You are here in my mind
I talk to you and all my fears unwind
I know I'm loved, for who I am, you make me want to be the best that I can
And you walk beside me, giving strength I've never known

And I am not alone
You walk beside me
Oh, I am not alone
Wherever the road leads

And I rely on your patience
When I face the unknown
And because of you, I am, I am not alone, ooh
I am not alone
(I am not alone)

You're always beside me, yeah, I am not alone
Oh yeah, yeah in the sun, in the rain
(I am not alone)
Through the good times and in the pain
You're always beside me I reach out for your hand
(I am not alone)
I know that you understand, oh yeah, yeah
(I am not alone)

In the sun, in the rain
Through the good times and in the pain
You're always beside me I reach out for your hand
(I am not alone)
I know that you understand, oh
