I haven't posted much lately, we have had 2 deaths in my husband's family. His brother's wife died a week and a half ago, at age 47, after a long illness. My mother in law died Thursday, also after a long illness. My mother in law was a very difficult person to deal with, yet of course my husband will miss her.
On the plus side, we have had a houseful of relatives, and my kids have handled it well. I am especially proud of my older son, who has a developmental delay and has a hard time with changes in routine.
Time for exercise has been minimal. I have not been overeating, but have not been careful with what I eat .... grabbing things like a slice of veggie pizza for breakfast. Like all things it will pass.
No matter how long we live, life is damn short, my friends.

- 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.
