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.

"Dreaming is wonderful, goal setting is crucial, but action is supreme.
To make something great happen you must get busy and make it happen.
Take that action step today that will put you on your path to achievement."

Thanks for the blog comment. The scary thing is that I consider myself pretty darn smart as well as well read in the field of nutrition and I can't seem to figure out why I can't lose the weight!!!!

Thank you for the blog comment. Very true, when dealing with one's own weight, moving it down is most assuredly better than moving it up! Have a great week!

Thanks for the blog comment. I know that I keep doing the same things over and over again and I do know that this makes me insane :) I do need to get back to what worked in the past, I know this, and I have had days of doing it. But for some reason I am having a super hard time of keeping it up.

Could be due to just having a general disgust to life overall and after a few days of eating pretty clean I get fed up and blow it. I feel like if sometimes things would go my way it would be easier to to be more positive and follow through. But even when I was having weight loss success, the rest of my life was a steaming pile.

Thanks for the goodie also, now if I only liked veggies :(
