How I Lost It
I dusted off my running shoes. I love working up a sweat on the treadmill. By slowly increasing my endurance, I have completed two 5Ks with my oldest son. Now my husband is even running—he’s my motivator when I don’t feel like doing it.
I kissed carbs goodbye. On the Atkins plan, my diet is made up of lean meats—like salmon and chicken—and hearty vegetables. While I’m avoiding refined carbohydrates, I always keep a fresh salad on hand. On busy days, it’s great to have everything chopped and ready to go without cooking.
I do double duty. I used to spend my boys’ basketball and football practice watching from the sidelines. Now I head to the gym to get in my own workout: 30 minutes of cardio and strength training twice a week.
