Me on my wedding day in 1990 - this is my goal weight - only a fitter 125.





Me with two of the best reasons to get healthy!

Not starting over, but kicking it up a lot!

Like I've said before, this isn't something I can ever just stop doing and expect to keep the results I achieved. It's a lifestyle. Life gets in the way - events, hormones, stress, finances.....the list just goes on and on. What makes a difference? Starting again. No matter how many times!

This time I did not stop working out completely. I was very consistent for 2 years, then kind of slowed down. So I am not restarting that again (thank goodness!).

I have gained. Recently I gained while doing things right. Turns out my thyroid levels went in the wrong direction, plus some new hormone changes due to age. What does this mean? I've got to work even harder! The alternative is giving up on myself and just letting my health go. Not even an option.

This restart is really as of Decmeber 1, when I went to the doctor and got the news about my thyroid levels and hormones. I took measurements and photographs, started my determination again. It just took me a week to decide to use SP again to track my eating and get some support.

My Goals:
#1 Goal - 12/29/14 is one month and time to take measurements and photographs again. Goal weight is 201. This is setting the bar high but is completely doable if I stick to all the above steps. I won't have Body Beast until January, so I must get back to doing weights on my own.

Goal #2 - Cycle a 50 mile charity ride this spring. Rides not posted yet, will be more specific as soon as dates are released.



My Program:
Step #1 - run on mini trampoline 3x a week on the days I don't spin.

Step #2 - spin class 2x a week (no excuses)

Step #3 - add weight training 3x a week (either Body Beast or on my own or find a trainer that works with weights)

Step #4 PiYo 2x a week (I think spin days are a good choice)

Step #5 - Setting and keeping good eating habits.

As easy as I find the exercise part. The #1 thing that makes the most difference is what I eat. Not only what but when. I must, must, must start every single day with breakfast within 1 hour of waking. I absolutely must set the alarm on my phone for 3 hours each time I eat and make sure I eat again every 3 hours. My habit of getting caught up in what I am doing and skipping meals, not eating enough all day and eating way too much at the end of the day must stop!!!
