Joined this site a while ago but did not stick to it. So now back again working towards becoming healthier. Goals are to tone and gain muscle. At age 45 it is important to try and build muscle because as we age we lose it and it is much easier to gain weight.

Trying to also work on stress management as I have a lot of it. I work full time, go to school, and raising two teenagers. My plate overflows much of the time but after my mom passed away of cancer, I wanted to commit to becoming healthier and hoping that at an older age I will be healthy.

I finished Insanity July 2013 and injured my knee. MRI indicates it was a bruised bone. I just go the results back about 2 weeks ago so trying to stay off the knee and let it heal. As soon as I can I want to start running again.

    Just dropped by to say "you're welcome" and to thank you, as well. I pray everyday that God will use me to bless someone else, and it's good to know those prayers are answered. If I can ever help you, in anyway, just let me know. I see you're originally from PA, what part? I know what you mean about the "transition", I remember when I moved to San Diego. I'll be honest though, I missed the mountains and yes, I even missed the snow!! What was I thinking!! lol....I've left PA many times in my life, but I always come back. I guess this is where God has planted me and so here I will grow!! Have a spirit-filled weekend!!
