a thing in motion stays in motion

about 3 years ago, my physical motion came to a screeching halt, while at the same time my emotional mojo revved up bigtime.

after living in europe for close to 17 years, lots of personal changes for the better led me to move myself and my daughter back home to cape cod in 2007. since then, i have had to adjust to sitting at a desk all day and driving everywhere in my car instead of walking everywhere in the city and taking public transportation.

while these changes have been positive in many ways, the effect on my weight just about sent me to trajikistan!!! i gained about 25 lbs in 6 months. i quit smoking and then started up again. i felt like a pile of stones at the end of each day after sitting for 8 hours. and my nerves were wrecked.

in march 2010, i stumbled across and have gained more and more motivation ever since.

on 13 may 2010, i quit smoking for the LAST time. i am so done with that scene, no more addiction for me.

four days later, i started a major nutrition and exercise challenge for myself and have been progressing forward (mostly) ever since. losing weight and gaining muscle are secondary to my desire to accomplish my goals and set an excellent example for my daughter.

My Goals:
130 lbs & 15% body fat by the end of 2011

My Program:
after stalling at a very annoying plateau for 3 months, i found in march 2010. after that, i joined a gym and quit smoking. since mid may 2010, i have lost close to 4% body fat, 48 inches total and 7 lbs of fat, while gaining 4 lbs of muscle. and i am down 2 dress sizes as of 21 dec 2010, from a 12 to an 8. although i would like to see the fat melt away more quickly, i am pretty happy with my progress so far!

Personal Information:
in october 2007, i moved from germany back home to cape cod. now im surrounded by family again, lol. lucky to be raising my amazing 10-year-old daughter, my sunshine girl.

    Ohh....we didn't have a challenge this weekend. However, did you at least move about? I have been having suuucchhhh a non sparky week! But that's ok I guess. I think I will try to get back into it this week.

    Are you taking the little one out in costume tonight? Or does she think she's too old?
