About Me

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.

It is Friday, and my weight is up a little, probably from the bbq grilled chicken wrap I had at lunch yesterday.
But all I really care about today is that it IS Friday.
I am not sure if the winter weather is part of the deal, but I have been sooo tired, at the end of the week I am ready to collapse.
I will get to the gym after work today, and get a little running in.
After my kick ass plyometric leg workout on Wednesday, walking on the treadmill was all I could muster.
