Sometimes we lose ourselves in the busyness of life and responsibilities. This year, I am taking back my life and control over what I put into and get out of my body!

Update for 2011:
At my heaviest, I weighed 301#s. As of the start of this year, I have lost 105#. I am elated! I can wear clothes I haven't worn in 15 years since I was in the Navy. My journey is not over. My weight loss continues. I still have more weight to lose, more fitness and muscle to recover, and more self-awareness and self-love to embrace. I am excited to be on this journey with all of you! So, let's do this!!

I have reset my ticket to reflect my goals for 2011. First, 190, then 170 and then my ultimate goal of which I have never seen the likes...145lbs! I claim this! It shall be mine!

Just updated my fitness plan to build consistency in this area. Here's what it looks like:
Weeks with Kids
Sun OFF
Mon Cardio - 20-40 min; ST - arms, push-ups, abs
Tue Cardio - 20-40 min; ST - legs, back
Wed Cardio - 20-40 min; ST - arms, push-ups, abs
Thu Cardio - 20-40 min; ST - legs, back
Fri Cardio - 20-40 min; ST - arms, push-ups, abs
Sat

Weeks without Kids
Sun OFF
Mon Cardio - 20-40 min; ST - arms, push-ups, abs
Tue Cardio - 20-40 min; ST - legs, back
Wed Cardio - 20-40 min; ST - arms, push-ups, abs
Thu Cardio - 20-40 min; ST - legs, back
Fri OFF
Sat Cardio - 20-40 min; ST - arms, push-ups, abs

Arms = triceps, biceps, shoulders, lats, delts
Legs = abducters, adductors, hip flexors, quads, hamstrings, calves
Abs = lower, upper, obliques
Back = upper, lower

    I actually was just trying to get my 'respond on a blog' points and so I went to the recent blogs page! So no, I had no idea! Funny! I am on the westside - Wickliffe to be exact.

    We do a jog/walk interval during our races; or at least I do. When I was in better shape, I could run the whole thing. Now, my goal is to finish and not be last. So far, so good! My new year's resolution is to partake in at least 10 races this year. I can let you know when we plan one!

    Hello! When I commented on your blog, I had NO IDEA we lived in the same area! I guess I am assuming you live in the same area based on your Browns comment and the fact that you reference the St. Malachi race on your page....my husband and I do that race every year! I hope you don't mind, but I made you a friend of mine on Spark. That way we can communicate more and maybe help each other stay on track. Again, good luck this year!
