Well, I lost the weight and gained it back and then some. I'm quite disappointed in myself and have run out of excuses. I'm in my 40s now. Both my children are grown & now that I have to live for ME, I realize that I forgot about myself along the way. I want this weight off & I want my energy back. I'm ready to embrace this new phase of my life & I want to look and feel good while I live life out loud!

I'd like to fit into a size 10 in ladies not juniors. I estimate that I would weigh about 165 pounds in that size. I want to reclaim my self-esteem and share my joy with others. I want to be successful!

My Program:
Cardio-4 or more times a week for a minimum 180 minutes
Strength-Twice a week or more!!!
Run 2 miles at least 3 times per week!
ABS 5 days a week!!!

No more Pepsis.NO HONEYBUNS or other pastries. NO OREO cookies.

Eat fried food sparingly.

Drink a min of 64 oz of water daily.

Be conscious of what I put in my mouth and exercise to burn calories consumed.

Track my exercising and my food and evaluate them regularly to see what I can add or what I need to take out.

Get moving & stay focused!!!

Personal Information:
I'm a GA peach... born and raised. I'm a divorced mother of 2 teen daughters. I am a victim's advocate in a prosecutor's office. I recently went back to college pursuing a psychology degree. I think I want to become a licensed counselor. This is ME taking time for ME and doing something that will benefit ME. I am a caregiver and nurturer by choice but this time I'm choosing to care for myself.

Other Information:
There's nothing random about me. I'm an intentional masterpiece. A soldier of life's wars. Strengthened by my scars. Unstoppable, unbreakable. Unapologetic, unshakable. My being surpassed mere happenstance. Transcending predictions. Overruling chance.

I love to write. That's from one of my poems.

    Thanks for joing the 100 minute challenge. I hope that it helps you as much as it has helped others.

    Steps to take:
    -Set a minimum goal of minutes that you want to exercise per week.
    -Set a mini-goal; for instance, three months from now or when you loose 10% of your current weight.
    -Set a time-limit; this is when you can spend the money in your jar or add it towards the next mini-goal

    Don't forget to post your progress once a week, around the same day as your weigh in day.

    If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

    Have a great workout week!

    Girl, you are so beautiful! And I would say, "You don't need to change a thang?!" But we need to feel as beautiful on the outside & inside as well, so that means taking care of our bodies & minds for postarity sake! You gone head on and I will be looking in on ya from time to time! I am here everyday, up to 5 or 6 times a day, and all day at work!

    I am fanatical when it comes to SP!

    God bless & my best to ya!!
