  1. Here's to my first log


    Hey there guys! I'm new here to AM. I started this journey about 7 years ago. I'll give you the short version though. Lol I grew up inactive and fat. In 2006 weighing in at 200lbs at 5'5", I realized how fat I was and wanted to loose weight. So, I did the typical thing- dropped calories down to 900 a day and ate all crap. Lost down to 140 and got pregnant with my second child. After having my second child, I joined a gym determined not to get fat again! Waisted a year basically still eating crap and playing in the gym before I started educating myself on proper training and nutrition. Slowly, I am learning... As of now I have lost 70 lbs and around 23% bf. I am down to 19% bf - my goal is to be around 15%. So, I'd love learn from you guys as I continue towards my goal!

    Training summary:
    M, T, TH, FR- weights and (30 min) HIIT cardio
    (Details will be posted thought my log)

    Nutrition: 1500 calories
    Protein at least 1 gram per lb
    Carb 150 grams or less
    Fat 40g or less

    Water- 1 gallon a day

    I am in love, but not in love with someone or something, I am in love with my life. And for the first time, in a long time, everything is inspiring.-

  29. Haha I love to cook! Really love to bake but I only do that as a side job now! Yes, meal prep is quite tedious but well worth the trouble!

    Puccah, I understand! I have felt the same way! Took a 3 hr nap! Had to get up to take care of the kids- otherwise might have slept through till tomorrow!
