My weight gain came gradually. It took a photo for me to see reality.

I love exercise and doing new things. The Y has been my main place for exercise. While in my 20s I laughed exercise classes at the Y because they weren't intense enough. Now in my 50s, I push myself to keep up!

I have 4 children from teen to adult. I am putting my health first now instead of my kids, hubby or career. In the long run, I will have more energy to give.

Recently, I've started Nordic Walking because I like the inefficiency. That is, it burns more calories than regular walking. It helps my posture, triceps, chest and back along with improving my cardiovascular system and lower body.

I joined the Ohio Challenge 2010 series in the Walking and Weight Loss division. I will be walking (at least) five 5Ks this season.

    Hi, Ally! Just wondering how you're doing!

    So... how're you doing?
    emoticon

    Miss you!

    May today and every day bring to you a ridiculous abundance of whatever you need. May all your concerns, struggles, anxieties and fears fall like ashes as you rise on eagle's wings, SOARING above all that would hinder you along this tremendous adventure of being and becoming all you are created to be. May the grace of God simply "overtake" you moment by moment. May the joy and victory of the risen Lord be yours in a very personal way... may you always be overwhelmed by the grace of God, rather than by the cares of life!

    Thank you for the blog comment. You're absolutely right, I shouldn't put hubby in that situation. Glad I didn't already propose that to him. lol

    I need to be accountable for myself. I'm the only one who can do it. Thank you!
