- 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.

A dancer, I ain't
At karate today, I stepped on my own foot, and severely injured my 4th toe! I don't think it is broken, but it is bruised and black and blue, and hurts like hell. It turns out that 4th toe does come in handy for walking! If I had gotten injured sparring, it would have been a badge of honor. Stepping on yourself? Not so much.
