165 pounds

My Goal:
current GOALS

1. BIG CHANGE- find that gumption that got me with PT in an acceptable lifestyle and weight!!. Gumption coming.... loving my biggest loser team, even tho I NEVER watch that show (or any show for that matter)
2. Exercise- Goal is 1 hr/day
3. Food- log it... thinking calories and generally not too many carb... altho money is tight so that is kinda tough right now.
4. Spend TIME meal planning/ bulk/ freeze/ crockpot. How much planning? I think a several hour planning session.... with constant kid interruption cd be....4 hrs just to get a handle on the contents of my freezer/match w. healthy recipes. That's just the planning part.
5. make tickers for eating exercise, food planning

Wed- 1 hr walk-
Thurs plan = walk
Fri plan- ellipt before HS co-op
Sa plan- walk and archer
Su plan- walk... maybe try to meet someone for this

2013 Well...... another MOVE....more weight too! 265 most of this year

10.16.13 = 262.
10.18.13. = 265 >:(

1.20.14 = ?
Gaol stick to low carb for 6 week boost. On first week right now and I feel so good!

How to do it? Log every day..... exercise 1 hr/day....low carb

About me:
42, 4 homeschool kids (11, 9, 8) + 2 yr old baby, just moved, um...need to KICK BUTT! And shake something up and get my whole brain headed in a new direction with HEALTH! My great kids are with me 24/7... so that completely plays into how I eat/exercise, too.

Diets I like:
I like Low carb! It get me cooking..gets me in love with vegetables... then I like to add my elliptical plus meet w. friends to work out! I'm so social!!

Workout of choice:
Walks with friends or alone. Currently dreaming of doing class 2 river kayaking. T/Th core class is plan. Home exercise equipment- elliptical, recumbant bike, weights. Sometimes I get in a habit of long, sweaty cardio to music... it is so good for me. Want to be like that again!

My plan:
Plan is whole foods/low carb and adding intense exercise. No obsessing w. weigh- ins! Weigh ins are every 12 weeks or so... otherwise my head gets crazy with the scale. I need to remember what works for me and stay steady. Sadly, I am very unhappy in my life roles as mom.... every day feels like torture..... and my head is in fantasy world... because i am so unhappy in my real world...

I need the most help with:
Encouragement! Lets do it together!

Additional Info:
Needing basic emotional survival here. Focus on physical health..... is sort a of distraction/fantasy world... but seems like a decent place to put my efforts... and seems it will improve other aspects of my life......
