New Segment - Health and Fitness


I am a mountain biking tomboy.  I am a biologist.  I am a certified Spinning instructor.  

I am overweight.

I have been putting the needs of others before my own needs for the past year.  I eat when I have time, and I eat whatever is around at the time.  I have not been exercising.  And the results have been predictable.

I have gained weight.  I have lost muscle mass.  I am out of shape.

I am now ready to put myself first again.  I will be watching what I eat and planning my meals better. I am in the process of getting my own indoor bike so I can work out regularly again.  I have lived like this before, and felt great.  For 5 years I taught 5+ spinning classes per week.  I watched what I ate.  I felt great.
I am ready to reacquaint myself with old habits.  To get myself back.

As I do this, I will bring you on my journey.  I will share all I have learned, and re-learned.  I will tell you about my workouts, and my eating plan.

This will be a weekly segment - with its own spiffy header link.

Welcome to my health and fitness journey!

I think there is going to be quite a following with you on this journey :) I myself can relate as well. I used to work out like a fun activity, and it's been basically non existent in my life for a few years now. I'd like to blame it on having kids, that's partly true...but I see the light and I'm s-l-o-w-l-y finding that part of the missing me again as well. Thanks much for visiting me! I will take your lead on this one :)
