April 2020

2009: (Age 41) Became ill and quit smoking cigarettes after smoking 23 years. Joined Sparkpeople.

2010-2016: Became a runner. Then a distance runner. Tried many fitness and nutrition programs and lost 23 pounds.

2016-2020: Became a lifter. Ran a little less. Changed my body composition (added muscle) while maintaining weight.

2020: (Age 52) Life has suddenly changed due to a global pandemic. Living isolated with husband and daughter.
Lifting less and back to running more. Still maintaining weight.

Working on accepting my new normal as world events unfold. I’m not sure what my future holds so I will live each day as it comes and do the best I can.

Current Plan:

*Maintain weight within 5 pound range. Aim to hit daily macros (100g Protein/100g Carbs/50g Fat).

*Work up to running 25 miles/ weekly while avoiding injury.

    Good luck with your new toy! I'm not surprised about 23 minutes in the zone for Cardio X. The warmup for yoga isn't that intense. I definitely think Kenpo X is harder. My bodybugg told me I burned 350 calories during the Bob Harper Yoga video the other day so that was a surprise. Good luck! I'll keep you posted! :)

    Thank you so much for my spark goodie. I am doing well. The morning(more like all day) sickness has begun to kick in!ha Really I only feel nauseous after eating. But other than that I am doing great.
    I hope the new year has started off well for you! I saw that you had some wonderful goals set out for 2012. Best of luck! :)

    I'm starting off with one of the True Blood books a friend let me borrow ages ago, but I want to get into some of the classics that have been collecting dust in my bookshelf for a while (like The Three Musketeers and The Great Gatsby), too. Hopefully the 3 year old of the house will cooperate with me...

    Hi Lori! Yes, Round 2 of P90X tomorrow. I can't wait! This time I'm doing the Classic program and adding about 20-30 minutes of cardio on the strength days. I'm irritated at this plateau so hopefully this will bust through it. Have a great day!
