Staying Focused!!

I am in my fourth year of living a healthy life style!!
I celebrated my three year anniversary with SparkPeople February 12, 2014. I reached my goal weight on 2/7/12 - almost a year to the day I joined SparkPeople!! Sometimes my weight goes up a little bit, but I manage to drop it back down and maintain with different challenges on the SparkPeople web site, the support of my SparkBuddies as well as future physical goals.

I started off with walking. If you would have told me three years ago that I would have run a 5k, I would have never believed it!

As of today, I have run 5ks, 10k's, 2 ten milers, and 5 Half Marathons! Funny how fast one's perspective can change...even for us middle-aged people!

The biggest things that stand out to me are my energy level and my confidence to try new physical activities.

I have eaten a lot healthier over the past three years. I love the food and fitness tracker app on my iphone. It helps me to stay consistent and on track.

No more swimming in the pool this year. I did buy equipment for it to replace broken items. I will have to do basement walking while hubby is off work on crutches.

I am almost to 240 lbs. and on my way to 231 by December (or before).

This fall is going to be critical for me. I have abandoned the trek to a healthier lifestyle this summer and weight and blood pressure are rising as the spring floods in the delta.

Thanks for stopping by my blog....4 cats is truly a lot, but they are all so special and different...just like humans, each has their own personality.

Have a great hump day!

Hi, I was reading your info and I see that you do the run on Broad Street. I am originally from Philadelphia but it has been a very long time since I have been back to Philly. I graduated from West Catholic High School. I also even went to American Bandstand when Dick Clark was young and I know I am a lot older then you so I am aware that downtown has changed a lot! I am from the Gimbels, Lit Brothers and Strawbridge and Clothier era! lol Looking forward to getting to know you. Enjoy your day! emoticon emoticon June
