THE BEGINNING:200

Being my first post, I am not sure what all I am to include. But, I do know that I want to make it clear, I don’t want to just be “skinny”. I want to be healthy again. I grew up in sports, played college soccer, and have always been in good shape. Life happens and you tend to (as much as you say you NEVER would) not make that time to do the things that are good for YOU. I have never been a tiny girl by any means but have always rocked a healthy weight and confidence with that weight. I gained 70 pounds with my first pregnancy. After my son was born, I started to lose the weight and a year later was about 10-15 pounds away from my goal, to find out that I was pregnant again. Shocked, excited, then upset at the thought that I was going to gain weight again. Even with a healthier approach this time around I gained 70 pounds AGAIN! After my 2nd son was born this past December, I signed up for a half marathon and a spartan race thinking that  I could stay motivated and shed the weight fast. NOT THE CASE. 6 1/2 months later, here we are.  I have jogged/walked a half marathon and participated in a Spartan Race (if any of you do not know what this is, please google it now!) Even through all of this,  I find myself at a constant weight and a feeling that I am not happy with.  I am very aware of what needs to be done as far as nutritional changes exercise regimens, but I have never had to worry about this before. These obstacles seem to just be popping up and I feel extremely overwhelmed! I thought about blogging and thought MAYBE just MAYBE this could really kick start my motivation again. I love challenging myself and making myself accountable. There really is not another way to keep oneself more accountable then plastering it online for others to see…right!? The Goal: 30 by 30. 30 pounds by the age of 30.   I will turn 30 this November and with that addition in age, I really would like to be minus 30 lbs. I will post my progress and maybe you all could help keep me accountable. So here begins the journey. July 1st will be the official start date and I hope you all will join me!

  1. You are off to a great start. Just remember you need to get your rest and keep stress levels down. Sometimes not sleeping and stress keep the weight on no matter how much you are doing the right way! We will be with you every step of the way online! Goodluck!

  2. Believe it or not, one of the best things for me to remember when I am trying to shed lbs is to LOVE your body NOW. Hating your body along the way tends to get you stuck in a rut where you have a negative focus. Loving your body will help you to maintain the positive frame of mind that is needed to change. Seems counter intuitive, but it works for me. Just wanted to offer that up! 🙂 Go get it, girl!
