So... nine years later... Here we are in quarantine and getting fatter by the day. I've decided I'd better start my post-covid recovery now so when this is over and we get some kind of normal back, I'll be ready. Healthy, slim, strong. So... here we go!

Wow, I updated this last October and everything about it still holds true. How sad is that. Except maybe I'm winning the battle with those last seven pounds - if I can keep them off. I'm definitely going to start running again.

As part of my over all goal - To be in better shape at 50 than I was at 40 - is my smaller goal - To run a half marathon for my 50th birthday. Wa hoo!!!

And my next, smaller goal - To get this weight off before the holiday, keep it off through the holidays and through the next year. Okay, maybe not so small a goal? Stay tuned... this is going to be fun!!!

This page is definitely in need of an update....

I'm still here - probably a couple of years later. Still battling those last five to seven pounds... I'm starting to run again so I feel hopeful. This time I'm also trying to do the strength training that supports my running goals. I have such a hard time staying committed to that part.

Despite popular opinion, I believe we can have the bodies we want - regardless of our age - if we're committed to working for it. I'm working on that commitment.

Time to think about my goals again.

Lose ten pounds and then 15 more after that.
