Where'd She Go?

1/30/11 - I've been away quite a while but, now that I have been a non-smoker for 1 year, 8 months, and since my thyroid issue has stabilized a bit, I feel ready to go again. It helped that the nutritionist I saw recently pointed out that my calorie intake was too low. I don't know if upping it will help me lose weight faster, but I sure feel better.

11/16/09- I've been pretty slim most of my life, but after recently quitting smoking (again)(6 months ago), and being diagnosed with hypothyroidism, and ending a long relationship, and consoling myself with Haagen Daz, I've gained 25 pounds and I want the old me back only better (stronger). I keep thinking about a quote from Theodore Isaac Rubin, "Involvement precedes interest". It's true for me and I'm starting to get more involved and, consequently, more interested in doing what I need to do to get where I want to go. Yea!

My Goals:
I want to run a 5K and lose 25 pounds and get stronger.

My Program:
I plan to start with 1.5 miles 5 days a week on the treadmill or elliptical trainer (which I've already started) and then add free weights. I plan to rely on the "Flat Belly Workout" DVD (which has a nice aerobic warm-up and "multi-tasking" weighted exercises). This will be good for a start - "small steps" I'm beginning to understand the concept of starting small.

Other Information:
I'm beginning to see that results-driven workouts may not be for me (even though I want to achieve those results in the long run). I think the small steps concept is the one that will entice me to stay the course. I want to concentrate on exercising for the fun of it and for feeling better.

I love my new jeans! Many thanks...

I actually have dropped a size and that made me smile when I got them. I appreciate your thoughtfulness. ~JJ~

Thanks for naming the Strong Women program on your page. It looks like a program that might work for me. I'm pretty sure that if I don't have osteoporosis yet, I am almost there.

Thanks for your comments on my blog. You are so right about non-blended families! Once THAT dawned on me, I eased up on myself! In fact within our group, the biological siblings often are not speaking, or are rather cool! It is a hoot since at this age, I cannot think of anything that would keep me from speaking, loving or being with any of my family!
And as my husband and are not getting any younger, I suspect that if they want to be together during holidays, they will have to come to us! Oh dear. Then I will have to clean the house!
