I am a 30 year old divorced (but recently engaged again!!) mother of 2 children. My oldest child is 7 years old. I guess that rules out the, "Oh, its just left over fat from the baby" excuse. :o)

I am currently loosing weight by eating 1500 calories or less a day as prescribed by my physician. I walk at a pace of 3.2 to 3.8 for 3 miles, 5 days a week. Sometimes I throw an extra day in there and take off a day later in another week. Since right after Christmas I have been pretty faithful to my healthy lifestyle but I feel I should be loosing weight a little bit faster.

I am controlling diabetes through diet and exercise.

I stay out of all the inner grocery store isles (where all the good food is) and stick to unprocessed dairy, meats, and fresh produce on the outside isles of the store. I’m trying to learn how to use more spices… Ohhhh how I want a big, toasted, extra cheesy steak and cheese sandwich…..with a box of glazed donuts for dessert.

I'm so excited for better weather! After spending all winter on a treadmill indoors, my body is finally ready to hit the dirt roads and trails of my West Virginia mountains and spend my 3 miles admiring God's beauty!

Better to work out at night/morning?
I actually don't get home until about 8:30 at night. We live so far from the school and my work that between school and the kids' practices we stay at my moms and do home work and have dinner.

I am going to try and walk a little during lunch. Then maybe a 30 minute or so aerobics right after my husband leaves for work. I'm going to try and have it all set up and ready to just hit "play" when he walks out the door and I turn the lock. LOL.

recommend You tube aerobics?
While I'm waiting for my Power 90 DVD's to come in, can anyone recommend a good you tube aerobic video? I want to try and keep my motivation up until Power 90 comes in the mail and I think I should try to do something until then.

Absolutely. I do put off taking care of myself too. I think keeping my kids invovled in sports is so important, but it really puts a strain on me.

Gnat824 is right though. Dedication is the key. And I just need to find it.

Thanks on the congrats! I actually lost from 253 to 217. But with all the hectic schedules since May I have put back on 14 pounds. Thats so frustrating. I don't feel so out of control with it this time though. I think it will come off pretty easy.

Walking may be an option during lunch. I usually don't take a lunch so I can get off work earlier - but I might be able to start doing that; plus working out at night. I'm just worried I'll be to pumped up to sleep after my work out.

Just from the last two mornings of having the intentions of getting up at 5:00am to work out - and then not doing it - I think mornings may not be an option for me. LOL

I'd love to car pool but unfortunately I have to use my personal vehicle for visits throughout the extremely rural county. We don't have a gym within 25 minutes of the school. I love rural communities - but sometimes they are just not that "working mom with kids in sports" friendly. If it wasn't already dark by the time practice rolls around I could walk around town really quick. But I don't feel safe doing it at night.

So, going to try walking during lunch and exercising before I go to bed.

Better to work out at night/morning?
The times I have available to work out are either 5:15am to 6:15am. Or 9:45pm to 10:45PM. Which do you think would be better?

Currently this is my schedule Monday through Friday.

6:10am: wake up, get kids up (6, 7, and 14 yrs old) and ready for school.

7:00am: Drop 14 yr old off at bus stop.

7am-7:30am drive to 6 and 7 yr old to school and drop them off.

7:30am-8:00am drive to work.

8:00am-5:00pm work

5:00pm-7:30pm: dinner and home work, drive to and then sit and watch basketball/wrestling practices. Monday through Friday. (I wish there was room to walk around the gym during practices, but there isn't Sad )

7:30pm to 8:00pm drive home with kids

8:00pm - 8:30pm: kids shower and bed time

8:30pm to 9:45PM: spend time with husband before he leaves for work (night shift).
