Life is such an adventure

Wow I'm gonna be 53 this year and the older I get the more I realize how precious my life is and how quickly it is going by. You only get one shot at life. Thats it. One go around. No do-overs. I love to try new things and I have always in the past let my weight dictate the things in life that I would/could partake in. How sad. I am so tired of that.

Last year I shed 45 pounds and 20 of those have found there way back. Im in the process of losing them and then some more. I'm going to change my life. I spent last year learning portion control and calorie content and what choices are better for you. I learned how important dinking water is and eating less processed foods really does make me feel better. I learned what cardio really is (not a stroll to the end of the block lol) I learned I can run a 5k. I learned everything I needed to know to lose weight. This year Im striving to make it all second nature. I want to truly

Hi and thanks for stopping by my page. You asked about a Virtual 10K - Spark has virtual runs (the Halloween one is coming up) and there are many sights that also have them. It is a fun way to challenge yourself - the "race" is created in the virtual world - on-line! You simply sign up to compete against yourself and others and run the race at a time that is good for you! No pressure, just fun! You don't have to worry about traveling, bad weather, high costs!! Some actually have medals that you can win, or shirts, etc. If you are training for a long distance run, this is a great way to set goals along the way. Thanks for reminding me that I need to sign up for a few more!!!

Hi there Colleen...just wanted to say you might want to check out No S Diet, not really a diet, but I think might fit nicely for you..

I have been binge free for a few weeks now..and enjoy my desserts, etc. every weekend.

Happy Belated New Year! Hope yours is off to a great start...

I thought of you yesterday after I had my "reward" - a session w/massage therapist! She complimented me on weight loss (only 5 lbs but I have been hitting the gym faithfully) & I told her of my plan: lose a little weight, or put my little Arab on the market!

Been on any good rides lately?
