Wow, I need a rest! Work is really challenging this time of year, with lots of urgent projects.
The good news: On my birthday (Dec 23) I reached a new low of 179. I did indulge over the holidays, but I am back to 179 today, and I would love to see a small drop by Friday. I have a session with my trainer tonight, and I have been eating well this week.
The bad news: my broken toe still hurts, although it is better. It makes pushing myself on the treadmill difficult. I want to make sure it heals properly because I have significant running goals this year.

- 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.
