Hello! Here I go again, but THIS time I mean it!!

My name is Suzy - I live in the Natomas area with a small dog I found on the street in January and named Tiuy. Note to self: never give a stray a name you might not want to live with long term, on the basis that the owners will be found any day.

As much as I love where I live, I am sorry to say I have gained 5 pounds per year the 7 years I have lived here, as I no longer walk a lot of places, and yet I still enjoy my glass or three of wine in the evenings! Now 5 pounds doesn't sound bad, but 5X7 sure adds up...and I seem to be having a heck of a time dropping any of them at all. I've South Beached (dropped 8 pounds, gained 'em all back plus 5); Weight Watchered (dropped 10 pounds, gained 'em all back plus 5) see the pattern.

I actually enjoy a lot of exercise options but seem to have gotten myself into a nasty habit of working most every waking moment, then being too tired when I finally wander home. Nonsense of course!

But there we are.

My Goals:
Lose 5 pounds. And then do it again a bunch of times. The real goal is 130 but don't tell the turtle, because he will be too intimidated.

My Program:
Program under construction. My turtle is moving the wrong direction (started Spark at 156 lbs) and it is time for a new program. Stay tuned.

    I was planning on similar: focus on getting back in basic good eating and maintenance exercise habits over the holidays and building up to racing again come the new year. I want to do a half marathon in May. A 10k might be a good lead up to that.

    Hey, Suzy! I have not seen you for a while ~ how is it going? Didn't you do a marathon or something recently ~ how did that go??

    So I've been whining about headaches the last couple weeks so have not been exercising (shot for migraine at doctor's office and ER - never had headaches like this before). Getting better slowly.

    So did you join Coach Krystie and the new group yet? Was curious how it was going. Hope all is well with you! ~~~Shar
