This Is It!

- I bought my first car
- I stopped riding my bike for transportation (or exercise)
- I got a desk job

Life after that became the yo-yo diet -- sometimes a normal weight, then gaining, then losing. I never reestablished an exercise habit, so here I am! I'm ...

Just thought I'd stop by to see how you're doing since I haven't heard from you in a while. Hope things are going well for you. I've been so busy since getting back from vacation and I haven't been hiking as much as I would like. As a result, I've hit a plateau and it's really annoying. I've got to get back on a regular hiking schedule and moving toward my goals. Take care and keep positive thoughts and keep working toward your goals!
