Introduction

Been trying to get healthy since 2014, and I'm heavier now than when I started. So, that's where I'm at LOL. But hey, I do half marathons now, and stuff hahahaha.

Goals and motivation

06/22/2020: Leaving all the old info below so y'all can see how my journey has been LOL.

I'm coming back to Free Trainers, again. I love this program, and it worked so well for me before. I'm now up to almost 190lbs....I have a home gym now, more like a little fitness studio considering everything I have. I've never really stopped working out. I struggle with the food aspect of all this. I have tried to use outside help, to no avail. Whatever. I know how to eat, I just need to make myself do it. It needs to become my lifestyle, and THAT is truly what I have struggled with doing. I will get there, eventually. :-)

02/2014: I want to be healthy. Also, I have this fat on my legs I don't like...LOL...but number one goal is to be healthy. I am 5'3" 175lbs right now, and I have hypothyroidism. I spoke to my doc a while ago about starting a work out regimen, and he highly encouraged it. :) So here I am. I would like to be at 140lbs by May 1st...but I know that is a long shot. :) That is roughly 2 lbs a week from now...hmmmm

UPDATE: Here I am almost a year later, and I haven't been able to stay motivated. I have tried a few different programs, but this one is the only one that really worked. I lost 20 lbs with this program, so I am back. :-)

I have 6 months to get ready for Tough Mudder. Bring it on!

UPDATE: It is seriously 12/30/15 and I am back, again, hoping to really get going again. :(

UPDATE: Again, I am back. But this time, it's because I am back up to 170lbs. Tough Mudder never happened.

    So far this morning, I've had two pieces of toast, gluten free, with earth balance soy free non-GMO buttery spread and peanut butter. According to the paleo diet, people aren't supposed to eat raw legumes. Well, peanut butter is roasted, right? So I don't understand why they say no peanut butter.....hmmm......

    Hopped on the treadmill, set it to 10 degrees, and checked my calendar. Today is a rest day??? Does hitting the treadmill on a rest day ruin resting?? I'm still not sure about AM or PM workout...PM is working for me, for now. But I think I should try AM too...see how I like that. :)
