Slow and Steady Wins the Race

Thirty something, weight loss has been a lifelong struggle exacerbated by life as professional (i.e. I spend about 12 hrs per day in my office) with little time for myself and exercise. Now add the fear that I'm teaching my teen daughter bad habits.

I am making changes. Now I wake up at 4:30 or 5:00 a.m. and workout before heading out for the day. If I don't make time for myself, who's going to? My daughter will have the example she deserves and I will have the healthy, fit body ...

My Program:
Working out 6 days per week for at least 60 minutes. I'm doing it at home for now because it's hard to get to the gym on my schedule. Right now Jillian Micheals is my trainer of choice. I also use a stationary bike at home for an average of 30 mins per day.

Update 6/2013- I've hired a
personal trainer to help me with strength training 2x weekly.

As for food, I am counting calories and restricting myself to 1400-1500 per day and trying the low-carb way of eating.

Personal Information:
From the Northeast but not originally.

We ask ourselves,
'Who am I to be BRILLIANT, GORGEOUS, TALENTED, FABULOUS?'
Actually, WHO are you NOT to BE? ... We are all meant to Shine...
And as we let our own light Shine, we unconsciously give other
people permission to do the same. -Marianne Williamson

Have a SParkling week.

Thanks for the blog comment. It felt really good to post a good sized loss! I've spent almost the last 2 years mostly going up with the occasional small loss, so this one is special :)

Thanks for the blog comment. There are so many things that can cause a person to feel tired, so it seems you got a little lucky if it was just your iron count. I really should get back on a daily vitamin and mineral regimen and I should also remember to take the darn things daily!
