Why I Got Started

Like a lot of women I started gaining weight in college and the weight just multiplied over the course of three pregnancies within a 5-year period. I wanted my old self back! I used excuse after excuse over the years to not start a healthy lifestyle: school, work, and kids. It's just easy to sit around get fat and become unhealthy.

After my third child I said "That's it! My time is here! I have 3 wonderful children but not enough energy to do the things I want to do with them." I bought a treadmill and walked as fast as my body could for 25 minutes a day 4 days per week. Combining exercise and a healthy diet, the pounds started melting away. I was hooked! I was going to take my life back and not let food rule me!

How I Did It

I started out with low intensity walks on the treadmill. I began researching Bodybuilding.com and about three months into it I purchased some inexpensive weight lifting equipment and started working out at home.

I found inspiration and motivation by reading the many female transformations and continued to research Bodybuilding.com forums and articles for new exercises and dieting tips. I modified my training program the fourth month to include high intensity interval training (HIIT) and began a structured strength training program with a clean and balanced diet.

With High Intensity Interval Training you can burn more fat while spending less time in the gym. I will explain how you can get the best results from this.

Advice To Others

Keep a journal of your diet and progress in the gym. If you decide to cheat, do it and just keep going on a healthy tract the next day. I truly believe cooking more has contributed significantly to my weight loss.

If you work or find it hard to cook everyday, you can prepare your meals in advance. For example, I cook up a few pounds of chicken and make chicken salad for lunch the next day. If you have a sweet tooth, be sure to keep a power muffin/ bar on hand just in case there are donuts in the break room at work in the morning!
