I had a baby in December 2009 and then one in March 2015. Last time I lost the "baby fat", it took me two years and a PT and many, many hours at the gym, like at least two hours a day. This time, however, my time is more limited, and I want to focus on health instead of driving myself crazy trying to get to some fantasy body. Heck, I will settle for my pre-pregnancy weight at the rate I'm going.

I want to focus on healthy eating and keeping an organized, clean home for my children. I also plan on taking my children on regular outings. I won't be a gym rat, this go round, because I would rather spend time with my kids. But, I do plan to take up yoga again and maybe hit the gym two to three times a week or do something comparable, like take a morning walk.

My ultimate goals are to get back into healthy movement and continue to achieve healthy eating and exercise goals. Also, I need to get my knees back in shape, as post baby #2, I am struggling to climb stairs.

So, here's to a fresh start and a better, saner focus.


Member Since: 7/6/2010

Fitness Minutes: 52,997

My Goals:
My goal is to develop a more compassionate, attainable health plan that won't have me camping out at the gym because I don't have time to do so. I also want to eat healthier without going on a diet. Also, I want to reduce work and teaching stress.


My Program:
Revised Movement Plan when Not on Vacation. (Vacation 60 minute walk a day, minimum, 60 minutes of strength training a week, minimum.):

Monday: 6:00 a.m. Walk 60 minutes. Stretch 10 minutes. Insanity Workout and Restorative Yoga (180 minutes).
Tuesdays: 6:00 a.m. Walk 60 minutes. Stretch 10 minutes. Weight Lifting 30 minutes. Cardio or low intensity aerobics 30 minutes. Stretch 20 minutes.
Wednesdays: 6:00 a.m. Walk 60 minutes, slow. Restorative Yoga (60 minutes)
Thursdays: 6:00 a.m. Walk 60 minutes. Stretch 10 minutes. Clean the house.
Friday: 6:00 a.m. Walk 60 minutes. Stretch 10 minutes. Weight Lifting 30 minutes. Cardio or low intensity aerobics 30 minutes. Stretch 20 minutes.
Saturday: 6:00 a.m. Walk 60 minutes. Stretch 10 minutes. Weight Lifting 30 minutes. Cardio or low intensity aerobics 30 minutes. Stretch 20 minutes.
Sunday: 6:00 a.m. Walk 60 minutes. Stretch 10 minutes. *Get up at 6a.m., so you are not rushing like last time.

Daily Plan:

(1) Get up ever



Personal Information:
I am happily married and have a lovely seven year old for a son and 28 month year old daughter. My husband is incredibly supportive and is encouraging my restart mode. Every restart mode.

I recently finished a collection of stories and am working on a novel.

    PROTEIN AFTER WORKING OUT.* ) ..*) -::-

    According to Fitness magazine, the majority of us are getting enough protein. Most nutritionists agree that active women need about half a gram per pound a day or approximately sixty five grams for a one hundred thirty pound woman. The USDA reports that most of us -even vegetarians - are eating sixty -nine grams of protein daily so we are good. If you are as active as recommended, and exercise for more than an hour five or more days a week you should increase your protein intake to 0.75 grams per pound. Eating protein within thirty to forty-five minutes AFTER your workout rebuilds and repairs the microtears in muscle tissue that occurs when you exercise. Taking in protein right after you workout will make you less sore the next day and increases your lean muscle mass.

    Haven't seen any updates from you in a bit ... although I've been in and out myself lately. Fall is always so busy! Anyway, just thought you might check in over your holiday break and wanted to wish you well. Keep working on those goals in 2018! ❤
