My name is Angela. I’m 35 years old and live in New Hampshire with my husband, Ron, our 2 year old boy/girl twins, L and A, and our silly Chocolate Lab, Cooper. I’m a bit of a health and fitness junkie which lead me to a degree in Exercise Science and certification through the American College of Sports Medicine(ACSM) as a Certified Clinical Exercise Specialist(CES). I’ve done personal training in the past but have mostly focused on the clinical part of fitness in Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation for more than 10 years.
Like most people, I have had issues with my weight throughout my life. After college, I lost 30 pounds with diet modifications and exercise. I stopped drinking like a fish and bagels, pizza, and cereal weren’t the main part of my food intake. I’ve maintained my weight for over 10 years. When I was pregnant with my twins, I stayed active up until the 7th month when I was put on modified bed rest. I continued to eat a healthy diet without overindulging too much. I was a weirdo and craved fruit my whole pregnancy!
I gained 40 pounds during the whole pregnancy. After the babies were born I lost the weight relatively quickly. I started walking daily as soon as we got home from the hospital and got clearance to return to running 6 weeks post baby.
My favorite workout is running right now. I’ve run 7 half marathons and hope to do a full in 2013. I also love yoga and try to incorporate some form of a practice everyday whether it’s 20 or 90 minutes. My other hobbies are hiking, baking, snowboarding, and being silly with my kids.
