I don't have good grammar but sorry i don't have enough time to be anal about my typing and proofread forever :-)

*started working out again consistently on 3/10/08 for the first time since before I was pregnant, I feel very driven. I have set goals for myself for every 4 weeks
1st 4 wks- stay consistent, watch food portions
2nd 4- focus on core strength, more protein, don't skip meals
3rd 4- have at least 4 of a 6 pack(lets face it the bottom 2 of the 6 are the hardest to see :-) ) , see leg & arm muscles without having to flex to see them, try to do more cardio(very boring in a garage with only a cheapo stepper & jump rope, I also have a kickbox stand but its hard to get to use it as I usually have to work out when my son is asleep and it would wake him up)
4th 4- try to be brave enough to try out a gym instead of just working out in the garage, have legs toned enough to wear shorts that come above my knees in public for the first time in 3 years( i want the muscle to take away from the pale)
5th 4-reach physical goals, start working towards ace certifications, be proud enough of my progress to post pictures on this website.

Right on girl. Don't be afraid to post here. No one is out to bash anyone, all criticism is constructive and is more of support than anything. The atmosphere is very chill and helpful. I would never have posted pics anywhere else of my before state. Over here I felt right at home.

With a bodyweight of 107lbs I cannot see you being overweight no matter how out of shape you think you may be or afer giving birth regardless of your height. I'm sure you look great.

I look forward to watching your progress in your journal and i'm rooting for you!!!!

grrr, I cut out all wheat and gluten again for the first time in months on sunday, i should've cut this out of my diet a 2 years ago when i found out about my intolerance, oh well, leson learn. anywaysssss, monday at work i got a pounding headache thinking it was from detoxing. tuesday(yesterday) when i waaked outside to go to the gym, within 5 minutes my throat an eyes were burning and my sinuses flared up, becauseeee- they were burning sugar cane and it made the air mad nasty and smokey. today i woke up and i feel like a truck has ran over my body, fever and all, so i could not work out or work for that matter , I got to work at 6:30am, helped the ladies move cases of product to make the day easier on them and i left work 2 hours later. i'm excited to feel better because i just read about the abs contest, i think i could place at least in top 3 depending how many of my buff vegan sisters join. sick but still motivated. :-)

ok, this is what happened after my sick week of only 2 half a**ed work outs, and binge eating (any time i get sick I either eat everything or eat nothing). i took this pic on sunday night(5/11/08), i really want to enter the VBB abs contest, so I have been eating very clean , and have been very focused when working out this week so far. I am going to try and post pics every sunday up until the contest thread for abs is started to keep me motivated. I have been thinking very positive this week. last week was crazy! i got my son sick(first time he's ever been sick, 17 months old) and my husband as well. so on top of taking care of me i was taking care of them as well. i'm just glad all the sneezes and sniffles are gone!

awwww I hope your family gets better! Living with a family, sometimes passing on sickness is unavoidable, it happens.

Great picture, you still look great. I too wish to put up something for the abs contest. There is no way I will place as i bf but at least i will make a showing and support the contests by entering showing that anyone can enter and hopefully i can even stand to lose somewhat and have the contest to motivate me to do so.

Hope you came out strong this week now that you are feeling better.
