I love fitness and healthy eating, it only took me a decade to remember. I was a over weight child, very shy and lacking any sort of self esteem. When I grew into a teenager I was sick of the ridicule from my peers, but I am prone to internalizing my frustration and anger. I fought back, however once again my enemy was myself and I developed an eating disorder; well I had a eating disorder all along but I decided to do it in reverse and instead of over eating I stopped eating . I dropped 30 lbs in about 2 months and was so happy with my success I ate less and less and lost more and more. I was skinny and angry and addicted to the attention and small sizes I was fitting in to. Well this behavior went on for 2 or 3 year, but along the way to an early grave I discovered fitness and not being a completely stupid I realized to keep up with my new found passion I needed to fuel my body. I started reading about nutrition and found my new obsession. I was very healthy, working out, snowboarding, scuba diving, hiking, enjoying the spoils of the war I had just battled. However my early twenties proved to be my regression point. Like some tend to do I sunk back into a depression, not happy with my body any more I developed Bulimia, which lead to over eating junk food, alcoholism, and no longer exercising. I was trapped in this bog of misery for about 4 years, I was still on occasion active but I was not happy and ate every thing fried and washed it down with a gallon of beer.
Once again I was on the bottom but being the scrapper I am with myself I knew I needed to do something, I was not going down like this! Once again I told myself that fitness was my true passion and I needed to make the changes to keep it in my life! I started eating better, not perfect but better. I started drinking less, I started exercising more.
Not until I broke the chains from my addictions could I see clearly. I realized that there is so much more to life then a flavor, a buzz, a comment. I still struggle daily with a tendency to beat myself up, I struggle daily to love how far I have come. I do love my life now, my family keeps me accountable and proud. I hope to never return to my past. Not complete but I have bedtime stories to read.

I am trying to get at least an hour of cardio in 5 days a week, and weight training three days a week. I would also like to eat whole foods and eliminate wheat and dairy.

    Just wondering if you figured out how to post your tracking pts? Yesterday I sent sparkmail to the whole team that explained how to do it. Did you get that message? If not , you just go to the team challenges thread on the mommy to wowwy page and click on the week 1 June 1-4 and then copy someone tracker into your own post and then every time you want to post again you just find your original post and hit the edit my post button and add to that post. I hope this helps! If not then just let me know and I will try to help you! Thanks! You are awesome!!

    Momma, your headline for your page is "Momma getting a better idea of how to get things done!" I know in my own way that that's not so easy, so I wish you all the best in that and in the rest of your program. Saw your post in "Did you eat breakfast" and how close you are to your goal. That is so great. emoticon
