Now that shorter days are here (as well as the school year and homework, etc) I am not getting to the track very frequently. I do go to the gym to use the treadmill, and work out in the basement.
Our new setup in the basement has made it so conducive to working out. I used to try to use dvd's on a small portable DVD player that I put on the washing machine. Ick. Now we have TV, with DVD player, VCR and stereo in a very convenient location with lots of open space, where I have easy access to my mat, step, and weights and balance ball.
It is so cool I am looking forward to working out with Jillian Michaels.

- 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.
