I''m not gaining speed, just slowing down less than everyone else!

I am a very active person. I acquired a passion for life from both my parents who were always on the go to a new adventure. I recently got a custom tattoo that represents who I am.

That was years ago, I have since regained weight and become somewhat more sedentary.....well that is changing, I am back in the fight to stay healthy, and live the life I want to live without the issue of weight to contend with!

Did you get snow in Chi-town this last weekend?! Weird stuff is happening everywhere it seems. We went down into the 30's at night and it is NEVER in the 30's at anytime in March in Houston!!! So how are you feeling about the health care bill passing? I am so happy that it's over and that change is on the way!!!

Good to hear from you! Maybe things will change now that the evil wench is gone? You can only hope. 26 ehh? Quinn will be 22 in June so I am right there with you. Where the hell does the time go? I am yo-yo-ing 2 to 4 pounds. Up one day, down the next. I have either been eating right and not exercising regularly or exercising and not drinking enough water or eating too much. Just need to get it together all at once. Wish I had the enthusiasm I had last summer. I think it has a lot to do with the stress we are facing around here. It seems to be one thing after another. I just tell myself "you have to keep moving forward, don't let all this stuff cripple you". When the chips are down I tend to freeze and isolate myself. The up side is that the weather is absolutely gorgeous here, 60's and 70's with no humidity, nice and cool in the evenings and so sunny. My Azalea bushes are jam packed with bright pink blooms. So pretty. You can't feel down when you look out your front door at that! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hey Luv! How was your St. Patty's day? We didn't do anything special as we are broke but I did make Corned Beef w/ Cabbage, Potatoes, and carrots. It was delish. Hope you have a great bike ride this afternoon.

Thanks for the support (for my bone density test). I am sure it is simple. And we all have to make sure we stay healthy as we get older... so we can get older. :)

You're very welcome! I will consider getting a tattoo for this birthday (I'll be 60 in December).

Happy St. Paddy's Day!
