Hi Stacy and Jill -
I, too, am a military wife and Mom. Nice to meet others in similar situations. I am 35 and have a 17 month old that I chase after. I am almost as heavy now as I was when I gave birth :( I lost most of the baby weight but then gained it back because we had moved shortly after having my daughter and I didn't have easy access to a gym or childcare. So, now that I have childcare taken care of and can get to the gym, I am hoping to make the most of my time there.
To everyone -
Does everyone work out at a gym? Does anyone do (especially the weight training at home)? I would be interested in hearing what are the essential pieces of equipment to have on-hand? I have only 2 sets of dumbells and neither are particularly heavy (8 and 12.5#), and a make-do bench. Knowing that we are supposed to work out on an empty stomach makes doing some of the work-outs at home more appealing. Anyway, if anyone has any thoughts on the basic equipment to have at home I would love to have a list!
Just checking in with all the folks who started on Sept 13...... I hope everyone is still hitting it hard. I am still in the game - currently at 178lbs and 19% BF. My blood pressure is down as well as cholesterol. Still on the meds... hopefully with continuing the lifestyle - I will be free!
