Physical Activity - 3 hours 11 minutesSteps - 12696Calorie Deficit - 900 (7 day * 900 = 1.8 pounds of weight loss in a week)
Most of us do not get enough water. Unless your doctor has told you differently, on average we should drink 96 ounces of water or about three quarts. I usually carry a 24 ounce water bottle with me and refill it four times a day. Remember that soda pop, coffee, and tea count for one-half the the ounces. Why is this important.

I went back to working as an IT Professional in the past six months and stopped training clients when I decided to devote all of my time to work. I made this decision just like many of my clients have in the past because I thought I had to be successful. I poured my self into my job and six months and twenty pounds later here I am.

I am excited to begin bloggin - my English major part of me will enjoy the writing.
At the end of 2010, I made a life-changing, career-changing transition.
The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists
recommends pregnant women get at least 30 minutes of exercise on most days of
the week. And Pilates is a great way to
do just that. Here’s why:*Strengthens core muscles*Relieves back pain*Is gentle and no-impact
These exercises are great for your upper and lower body, and
all have a core component. Keep good
posture through the standing exercises and you will notice your back muscles
engaging. You need to work both front and
back core muscles to battle the imbalances pregnancy will bring. Between growing a baby on your front side
and carrying around your baby once he’s born, your posture will su
Music is a HUGE element in my life. I love how Music has the power to help you wake up, fall asleep, and can magnify any emotion in between. Most importantly I love how Music can help motivate me before and during a workout! Here are some cardio songs I love right now!
