About me:
I'm 28 years old and am currently working towards breaking into my local film industry. I have an interest in property development and am eager to take on another renovation project, hopefully in the new year.


Diets I like:
Eating healthy, nutritious food while aiming for between 1200 and 1500 calories per day.


Workout of choice:
I can most often be found working out at home - I have quite the collection of Jillian Michaels, Bob Harper, and Jackie Warner DVDs, and I'm pretty sure I own the entire Biggest Loser series to-date. I'm also a huge Tony Horton fan, so I'll pop in a P90X DVD every once in a while. I've recently given kickboxing classes and hot yoga a try and I think I'm a convert to both - I plan on incorporating these into my regular 'routine' as often as I can. If I find myself at the gym, I'll get in some time on the treadmill running interval sprints to improve my cardio endurance using Prevention's 2-Week Turnaround as a guide (www.prevention.com/twoweekturnaround), or I'll run a 5K aiming for a 25 - 30 minute finish. I also like to make use of the dry sauna at my gym to sweat it out, not that this really counts as a workout...


My plan:
To get in at least 30 minutes of high intensity exercise daily - ideally with some supplementary cardio, in a perfect world - while also counting calories, aiming for my BMR.


I need the most help with:
Emotional binge eating and a crippling sugar addiction! I tend to turn to high-fat, sugary foods when I'm stressed, tired, or anxious. I'm battling this using the PeerTrainer-recommended hypnosis CDs which seem to really be helping: I can't even remember the last time I went through a major binge.


Additional Info:
I've been on and off PT over the last 6 years, and while I know that I have more success when I'm logging, it's become increasingly difficult to find a group that sticks and clicks.
