- Six years ago I decided (age) 42 would be my magic number. I stepped on the scale for the first time in a LONG time. It was a BIG number, it was a SCARY number, but mostly I knew I had to own that number. I lost 40 pounds, leaving the obese category behind. In 2014 I committed myself to working out HARD and a low sugar diet, losing more weight and gaining nice definition. Then life happened, and I lost momentum, gaining some weight back. My goals now are different, and include completing my first ever marathon at age 48. GULP! You can read about the next part of my journey here.

Today, I had to travel across the city for offsite training, and had to get on the road much earlier than usual (after a horrible night's sleep) For some reason, that compelled me to get a dunkin donuts bagel with cream cheese (I had already eaten cereal and fruit at home) on the way. Half the day's calories before 8 am? Ouch! I recovered ok, but I won't be doing that again anytime soon. It tasted good, but not 500 calories worth of good. Ahh those changes in routine.
