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 and mind I deserve.

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:

    Thanks for the blog comment. It seems that SP does this every so often. Skips over the things that people have been asking for and instead changes something that seems to work just as it was intended. Frustrating!

    Thanks for the blog comment. I'm trying to keep it up even though my heart just isn't in it right now. But I will keep trying to make small changes until my heart and motivation are back and can put more effort into it!

    Thanks for the blog comment. I hope there's some progress made, any progress would be good at this point! Especially with Thanksgiving just 2 months away!!

    Thanks for the blog comment. Maintaining is good, but as you know, losing is much better! May we both post losses for many weeks to come :)

    Thanks for the blog comment. Luckily, I somehow managed to only gain 1.6lbs over the last two weeks! Don't know how considering the 3 trips to the pizza buffet and generally eating at Burger King, Taco Bell, Chick-Fil-A, Heart Attack Grill, McDonalds and several servings of soda as well as regular Starbucks visits.

    I don't know how I gained so little, but I am more than happy to accept it!
