Hello! My name is Angie. I joined Sparkpeople to lose about 10 pounds and get back to my weight that I was in college. I currently live in Las Cruces, NM. I just had my first baby this past August and have gained 56 pounds! I am now trying to lose the baby weight! I run 5ks, 10ks, half and full marathons as well as triathlons. I have currently ran in 7 marathons:

Women’s Nike Marathon in San Francisco
The Battan Death March, in Alamogordo, NM,
Rock ’n Roll in AZ
Denver Marathon
Duke City Marathon ( 2010, 2012)
Nashville Rock'n Roll Marathon, Nashville, TN
New York City ING 2012 ( was cancelled but is running in 2015!)

I swim with my masters swim team on Tue, Thur, and Sat mornings for cross training. I am currently trying to eat a high protein diet, lower carbs with little processed foods. My goal is to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight of 150 and then surpass that and get to 145! I was on the right track before the holidays hit but gained some during the holidays so now I am back to losing about 25 pounds to reach my goal of 145!

My Goals:
I gave birth to my first child, a boy, Sammy in August. I gained 56 pounds while pregnant.. yikes! My goal is to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight of 150 and then surpass that and get to 145! So far I have ran 2 marathons and one half since having Sammy, my baby boy who is now a toddler.

I am not following any plan for my half marathon just trying to get in miles during the week and one long run on Sunday ( between 9-13 miles)

    Thanks for the comment on my blog. That sucks that your husband wouldn't help with feedings or changing or anything. Did he not know before having a baby that they take WORK and that you should be a TEAM? Sorry but that makes me MAD! I breastfed so all the night feedings were up to me, but my husband did A LOT of diaper changes. There's no way he'd get out of feeding, changing, etc, for her since he watches her while I work in the evening. Ugh. I'm sorry he was being a jerk! As far as sleep goes, I know that the sleep deprivation was a MAJOR culprit to my PDD. I couldn't function. I would have dealt with Alexa's health issues MUCH better had I just been able to sleep. I look back now wishing I could have enjoyed her newborn-hood a little more. *Sigh* Not much I can do about it now except move on!

    And also, Alexa sounds a lot like your little guy. She talks but only has a few words, mostly babble. She doesn't walk on her own or stand much yet. I think she CAN do it, she just hasn't realized how awesome life will be (for her!) once she actually starts walking. I worry about her, that she's not doing enough, learning enough, but I know she'll meet those milestones on her own time. I'm sure you little guy will too!

    Yes, hubby and I did the 5K on Saturday. My watch said my time was about 34:37, so a good 6+ minutes better than my time in 2010, I think. I would still like to be able to run a 10 minute pace some day, but I guess I've still got some work to do! (Hubby makes me sick, he ran a 22:20!)

    How are things with the (no-longer-a) baby? Miss all your updates here!

    Have a great day,
