The Fit

Like many young women I know, I wish I was more fit.  I wish I ate my 1800 calories a day, worked out regularly, and had arms like Jillian.

(Also, I will take her abs, please!)

But I don’t.  This is partly because I am growing a human body within my body.  But this is mostly because I love to eat!  I love to eat QUANTITY.  Not only do I eat Kraft Dinner, I eat the whole box.  Not only do I eat frozen pizzas, I eat them almost entirely (and if they are thin crust, I DEFINITELY eat them entirely).  Afterward, I sit in a vegetative state in front of the TV and watch reality television shows about…losing weight.  Ummmm.

Because I am always so curious about stats, here are mine:

Weight: 180 pounds (as of January 2011)

Height: 5′ 8.5″ (That half inch is incredibly important)

At my highest, I weighed 207 pounds when I was 12 years old.  At my lowest, I was 159 pounds about a year ago.

Right now, my goal is to lose 15 pounds which puts me just a bit under my starting weight when I was pregnant. Really, though, my focus is to maintain a healthy eating and fitness schedule.  The number on the scale should not be an objective (this is helped by not owning a scale; this is hindered by only wearing pants with elasticized waist bands!).  I want to be healthy and fit without spending loads of money on gym memberships or fancy workout gear.  I want to walk, stretch, and tone inexpensively.  This will be my place to document my efforts!

I have a feeling that Jillian would support this plan.
