- 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.

I am not sure why I was going to wait until next week to start tracking my food? Just felt like being a big baby I guess. Instead I started tracking it yesterday. Yesterday was not a bad day. Today I did not eat too many calories, but way too much sugar. On the plus side, I will meet my goal of exercising 6x this week. It was a challenge because working out with my trainer on Monday really did incapacitate me. That is *not* being a baby -- the first workout has dreadful aftermath. But I did 5K on Wednesday night, weight workout yesterday, and Brazil Butt today. Will cap it off with workouts on Saturday and Sunday. One way or another I will get back on track.
