new here, goal is 20 kg.

Postby babylove » Sun Jan 08, 2012 4:00 pm

Hi everyone, I posted in intro, but thought Id join in here.

Ive decided this is the year to push my health and weightloss to the forefront. Im a 33 yr old woman, a mother of 3 gorgeous kiddos. (7,4, and 2 yrs). Id gotten back into shape by going to the gym consistently for over 10 years (during pregnancy and after the births) and not had an issue... until my youngest was diagnosed with a chronic illness. I left the health club I was at at that time to focus on my sons health and give everything to learning how to care for him. With that came a long winter where i ate too much bad food and became quite sendentary. In the last part of 2011 I gained about ten kilos and I feel awful for it. My wake up came when the dr told me my blood pressure was up.
My husband is really supportive and hes cleaned up his diet also so we have no junk in the house. He got me a 12 month membership to a new gym where I have unlimited use of pools, do classes and cardio equip and weights.
of
My goal is to work out up to an hour each of 6 nights a week, and have one rest day (with active recovery like walking the dog or going park with kids) and one cheat day with food being flexible.

I started at 84kg and this week have lost 2kg. I set goals of 1 kg loss per fortnight and my first mini goal is the couch to 5km program so I can do a 5km fun run with my eldest son in March this year.

You're welcome :)

I saw in your other post you'd lost a total of 4kgs in one week, that is very impressive! That will certainly help to keep you motivated this week. Keep us posted on how you're doing!

Hey Jules,

I am trying to get a walk in every day, at least 5 days a week. I am currently walking 5-6km a day outdoors. If need be, I take the kids and they ride their bike or walk with me, and the hubby even walked Sunday and tonight with me.

I use a fabulous iphone app (and website) called My Fitness Pal....it is the best thing I ever came across. It logs all of my calorie intake per day, exercise calories, water intake and it also has community boards like these.

Looking forward to following your journey!

I was still playing around with the food diary. How do I do that, search by user name?

I see you worked it out :lol: . Glad to have you on board!

There is an Aussie board on there, you should join it and participate in the weekly weigh in that we do every Sunday.

Enjoy!!
