- 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.

The Family that Brushes Together ...
I have 2 boys, ages 11 and 7. Like many kids that age, they think that brushing their teeth consists of putting a brush in their mouthes and chewing on it. This does not lead to good dental health. So now I brush my teeth when they brush theirs at their bedtime. They mimic me and brush longer. And since I don't eat after they go to bed, I might as well brush then. Right? Right!
