I'm Susi, a mom who is determined to lead a healthier life and be a good role model for my little girl.

The challenge, of course, is finding time to fit exercise into an already packed schedule. My life as a working mom (is there any other kind?) is already non-stop, and my DH is in school full-time, which just adds to the insanity.

But what's life without a little wackiness?!

My plan is to lose 1/2 - 1 lb each week, until I'm finally at my goal of 120. I'm starting the Whole30 program AND a 30-Day Shred challenge at the same time, and hoping for awesome results!!


I'll achieve this by:

* A minimum of 30 minutes of exercise each day

* Eating cleanly, and consistently tracking everything I eat


To stay sane (and fit everything in my schedule), this includes:

* Alternating afternoon runs with early-morning workouts, as my schedule allows

* Including DD in workouts whenever I can, either in the jogging stroller or having mother-daughter Pilates sessions

* Batch cooking my breakfasts and lunches for the week

* Planning dinners ahead of time each week, so we don't resort to take-out or packaged meals


Update:

I'm training for my fourth 1/2 marathon, and will continue to focus on running. I plan to do 3 short (3-5 mile) runs per week in the afternoons after work, and then a long run on the weekends. I'll be incorporating twice weekly yoga classes for flexibility, and filling in with other cardio and strength training on non-running days.
