hi everyone:)
i've just become a member of 3fc as of a few minutes ago:dizzy:
abit about me:28yr old mother of 2,i've been lifting weights/doing cardio for a few years now.i've always enjoyed exercise but i've always struggled with the nutrition......i know 70% success is in what you eat:o

i really enjoy healthy food and i love the way i look when eating clean foods combined with w.o but then i start to slowly slide back to the old eating habits,then the weight creeps back on,and, well you know the rest:dizzy:

so i've decided enough is enough,i've got to get back on track and start feeling healthy and fit again.so as of tomorrow i'm gonna be eating healthy and working out.:carrot: i'm quite looking forward to it,i hate feeling bloated and unhealthy blahhh.

btw i'm gonna be working out at home,i've got a weights bench and various weights and bb and db.for cardio i have a mini lateral stepper and also lots of workout dvds.so i'm happy with that.

as for my nutrition i'll be eating approx 5 small meals a day consisting of protein and complex carbs in the earlier part of the day and fibrous carbs towards the evening also plenty of water:carrot:

i'll post my starting weight tomorrow also i have bodyfat callipers so i'll post my bodyfat%.it may not be 100% accurate but atleast i'll have a number to go by.

well thats it guys,sorry the post is so long i just wanted to get it all in lol.i look forward to chatting with you all!

best of luck all..................and wish me luck too:)

welcome!! We have quite a bit in common...I'm 28, I've got young kids (baby #3 just turned 9 months old) and my downfall is also nutrition. You (and me too!) can do it though! I keep telling myself I really need to get into a consistent good habit of good nutrition so my kids know about it starting at a young age.

If you ever want exercise ideas, you can check out all the threads and stickies on this forum.

Good luck!
