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.

*Strength train a few days a week

*Flexibility and Foam Rolling several days a week

*Other Fitness: HIIT, Walking, Biking/Trainer

***Over the past 12 years or so, especially the last 4, I have grown 100% intolerant of toxic right wing ideals and the people who push them. Life is too short to put up with nonsense from people you want absolutely nothing to do with. No racism, no gun toting lunatics, no judging based on sexual orientation, nor religious preference. No anti-mask wearing virus deniers. I try to keep my page fitness related, but if you fall into the above category, you are not welcome on this page. ***

    Hi Lori, the printer is under warranty so a new one will be coming to me...yippee. This is actually my second printer (same make and model). I got both from Costco, but I had a different issue with the first one. I am hoping that the third time will be a charm!

    Oh no, flooding! I hope the rain subsides emoticon and your house doesn't get damaged. And of course, that you can sell your house too. The last bad hurricane we had was Iniki in 1992. It was a direct hit to Kauai. We had some damage and got them repaired. At least our house didn't go down. I don't know if it will withstand another one. There was hurricane Iwa on 11/24/82 (our anniversary!). June through November are not my favorite months of the year (hurricane season).

    The world these days is not what we want it to be, but there is some hope. I am wishing you a speedy recovery so that you can pick up and continue with your training.

    Thanks for the good vibes. emoticon I am sending you some too! emoticon
