I married the love of my life on September 26, 2009. Although I'm happy with the way I looked at the wedding, I definitely DID NOT meet my health and fitness goals prior. We are going on our HM (my husband is in law school so we couldn't go right after the wedding) on Dec. 28, 2009. So I have to push through the holidays and reach my goal.

12/3 I can't believe it's almost Christmas! I have been running consistently for about 2 months now. I definitely do better on a treadmill but I have a goal to learn to love running outside. My first 5K is this Sunday 12/6 and I am stoked. I took my time getting into running and I have gotten to a point where I almost get panicky if I miss a day. It just feels so good afterwards! Not to mention I LOVE logging the calories I've burned. I have also started biking 10-20 minutes after my run and have noticed more change in my body than I did just running. Very exciting!

I am now less than a month away from the honeymoon and getting so excited! I won't achieve the body that I would really love to have for our trip, but I have made great improvements and am feeling good. I keep reminding myself that this is not the first trip we have taken and it won't be the last, so I just have to keep moving and stay motivated and one day I will rock a bikini the way I have always hoped to!

1/13 The honeymoon is over and I ate my weight in food I'm sure. But I am back at it after taking 3 weeks off. My first 10K is in a week and I'm nervous!

Member Since: 3/3/2009

Fitness Minutes: 2,576

My Goals:
1. To look great in my swimsuit on my honeymoon.
2. To complete my first 5K running the entire time. DONE! 12/6/09 - 32:00
3. To run at least 3X a week
4. To incorporate ST into my workout routine.

My Program:
1. Focus on lean proteins and lots of fruits and vegetables.
2. Run at least 3 times a week. Usually more like 4-5X
3. Bike 10-20 minutes after each run

Personal Information:
I grew up in Asheville, NC and now live in Charlotte with my Husband and our two crazy dogs. Husband is in law school and I work a desk job as an Assistant Product Manager for a large southern retailer. We are currently waiting to find out where our lives are going to go. Husband has applied and interviewed with the Army JAG and its very possible we could be uprooted and moved across the world if he ends up being offered and accepting the job. Kind of exciting and kind of scary. I'm addicted to change though so anything different will be welcomed!

Other Information:
I, wine (red is my fav but thanks to migraines I now stick to white), reading when I have time, wasting away entire days at our lake on the dock or the boat, pasta of any kind, cheese, wrestling with our dogs, coffee on the porch on cool crisp mornings, weekend breakfasts that Husband has cooked, unexpected days off to spend with my family, and sleeping to my heart's content!
