I did it before and I can do it again. It's just a matter of making the time.

Member Since: 7/4/2008

Fitness Minutes: 168,692

My Goals:
Recommitting to sleep, in bed by 9:30 every work night
Working on consistent strength training. I lost a lot of strength when I adjusted to my NYC schedule, and I want to be as strong again at 49 as I was at 47. Noticing that it's a lot harder to regain strength lost than to keep it when you have it!
Getting 14K steps a day and at least 22 flights of stairs pretty consistently, but need to slowly ramp up the time in high intensity challenges to my cardiovascular system.
Sorting out how to cook when my workday starts and ends before and after the local grocery stores open and close and where I can only occupy 1/6 of the refrigerator space.
Wanting to feel as confident at the beach this summer as I did in 2016.
Working on graduating from the assisted pull-up machine to a plain old bar. Learning ballroom dance and ice hockey.
Sewing a wardrobe that fits my goal weight body.
House sold, now finalizing my divorce, and starting over in New York.

My Program:
A monthly challenge on my super supportive SEM team: a fitness goal, a nutrition goal, and a geeky goal.
And to never get a UTI again, daily supplementation with D-mannose

Personal Information:
Born and raised in Columbus, Ohio (Go Bucks!)

    Thanks for the goody. I finally got a smart phone and can't figure out how to give you a goody back. I am still hanging in there but this is slow! Then my knee went out on me so I am down to minimal exercise, but I am still working at it.

    My raised garden boxes are filled and most of the garden is planted. emoticon

    Not sure. We are back out in the yard working and exercising more, and we are substituting riced cauliflower for potatoes or eating mixed frozen veggies instead of high carb foods. Since this has just started this last week I am not sure what the the results are. I could be getting back to a healthier life or things could still be pretty messed up. Time will tell. I will get back to you on that. LOL

    Thank you for the spark goodie. I need to come back and lose again as well. Maybe we can help each other. Covid isolation did not do my figure any good.
