Kicking my butt

Oh man. My husband and I own a NordicTrack x7i Incline Trainer. It came with ifit.

I love my incline trainer. I am currently on Level 4 of the weight loss program.  I completed workout number 7 today. The first few days on the machine I could not finish the first workout without giving up after fifteen minutes. I fully admit that I have to take a minute or two breather during the workouts. My heart rate gets up to 190 sometimes and I don't think that burns fat. I am going to do some more research into that one.

Here is a look at what my work out was like today.

The highest point was at an incline of 32%, the max speed I think was 3.8 today.

I am not excited about tomorrows workout, but we will see how I get through it!

I'm going to do it

It is that time in my life that I have decided that enough is enough. Over the past 5 years I have put on almost 50 pounds. That is 10 pounds a year. I am sick of it, and I am not going to take it anymore.

I am ready to move on. My husband and I have purchased a treadmill, I quit my job, and I have time to get back to what I used to be, and start to be myself again.

So who am I? What am I like? Why should anyone care about me and my progress? Well the truth is, it doesn't matter who I am, what I am like, and I don't care what you think about me. This is a way for me to help reach my goals and record what I do, so I can try to do better and change my ways. Its about me helping myself, and from what I tried, this might actually be the thing that helps me. I will record what I have done as often as I can.

What am I like right now? Well I just weighed myself. I am 195.8 pounds. I have a 38-40 DD chest and wear a size 14 pant. For those of you that really know me, I like to say 20 pounds of my weight is my chest. I know its a lie. But I like to think that.

My goal is to weigh 140 pounds. I will get there. I am determined. I want my life back. I lost myself in work. Stress in my life adds weight. I know I will stress about paying bills, but I am lucky to have a supporting husband. We are thankful for what we have been given in our lives, and I know that we can make it.

I will keep you updated with workouts (thanks to ifit and Jillian Michaels, possibly my wii fit (plus), and whatever else I do that might burn calories). Join me on my ups and downs, and my LOVE of food.

Its an adventure, that I am going to start now, in the middle of the holidays! I know I am crayz, but I need to do it!! I am doing it for me. FOR ME!

peace. love. dove.
