- 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.

Week in Review
All in all, not a bad week. I will only get 5x exercise in, instead of 6. Bad planning on my part, as I forgot I was going out to dinner on Friday, and took a rest day on Monday. I was going to double up on exercise today, but the truth is my body is tired, and I don't want to push it too much. I tracked my food on myfitnesspal, and while my calories were ok, my sugar was too high. I have a better plan for the coming week, and am excited about it. Aiming for 80 g protein per day, and no more than 45 g sugar. I lost 3 lbs this past week, but hard to be revved up about that when I am still 11 above my lowest weight. Still, no choice but to move forward from where I am.
