My habits have been fairly crappy the past couple weeks, and while circumstances have been unusual (funerals, houseguests, birthdays, house painting, sickness), it is not an excuse ... just a fact.
On the plus side, I am now at 15 minutes of jogging -- intervals of 90 seconds jogging, 90 seconds walking over the course of 30 minutes. I believe I can reach 45 lbs lost this week if I buckle down. If not, I will get there sooner or later. I know there is no going back.

- 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.
