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!
