A Healthy, Fit Lifestyle

I am outgoing and athletic. I started working out regularly 5 years ago, after the birth of my second son. It's all about a healthy lifestyle, feeling great, feeling confident and setting a good example for others around me.

I originally got started using the Body for Life program. The book is a great reference that really simplifies things so that it is easy to follow, helps you set goals for sticking with it and create healthy habits.

I originally got started using the Body for Life program. The book is a great reference that really simplifies things so that it is easy to follow, helps you set goals for sticking with it and create healthy habits.

I have never been, nor will I be, on a diet. Diets are temporary and negative. Making healthy choices is lifelong and something positive you can be proud of.

Spark People has been a great resource for me. I did not have a lot of weight to lose. However, I have always been a bit mystified at how much I should be eating. I am 5' 10.5" and many of the "average woman" recommendations aren't quite right for me. Now, I really feel like I have the information and resources I need to stay on target. It is incredibly empowering.

My Goals:
I started working out 5 years ago & set and achieved several goals. My current goals are similar, but are now more about maintenance. My current goals are as follows:

*Maintain my level of fitness, or improve it by increasing cardio fitness levels & continuing to improve muscle definition
*Continue to lead a healthy lifestyle

An original goal that remains:
*Set a great example for my kids: They already value being healthy, exercising & good food choices
What keeps me going: I've had friends & family work out, lose weight & look great...then they stop. They gain weight and are/were miserable. I don't ever, ever want to do that...I won't stop, for even a week!

My Program:
Cardio 3x/wk...35-40 minutes running intervals

Weight lifting 2x/wk

Plus any other opportunities to have fun and get some exercise.

Co-lead "Time to look sexy again...damn sexy" team
