Never Stop Believing

I am 59 years old. Now it is time to get healthy and lose weight.

I enjoy taking my dog Chloe to the dog park daily. We love to walk around the neighborhood too.

Although my profile says I joined August 2011, I really didn't start until June 2012.

7/3/14: It's been 2 years since I started on SP. I'm just 4 pounds away from my goal. It took me longer than expected, but at least I'm almost there. Soon I'll have to post a new goal. This time it will ...

7/3/14: It's been 2 years since I started on SP. I'm just 4 pounds away from my goal. It took me longer than expected, but at least I'm almost there. Soon I'll have to post a new goal. This time it will be smaller, but probably harder to reach.

This year I started running. Amazing, right? Who would have thought that....

My Goals:
I am going to lose 50 pounds in one year. I began on June 1st 2012.

I also want to eat better and get into much better shape.



My Program:
I walk with my dog every day. She doesn't let me miss a day!

I do weight lifting with Kathy Smith's tape 3 times a week. I do "Abs of Steel" by Tamilee Webb 4-5 times a week. They are really helping me get in shape.
I know a lot of people hate strrength training but I love doing it. I love the way you can still feel it hours later.

I have started the 5K Your Way Walk/Jog Program from SP. Maybe I'll turn into a runner, weirder things have happened!

I love how the nutrition tracker helps to keep me in line.

Personal Information:
I live in Albuquerque, New Mexico with my husband of 39 years, my son and my dog.

I love it when things bloom too! Glad you liked my adenium photo -- hopefully next year it will really blossom but this year i'm happy with just the two flowers. Wish I had more of a green thumb for outside gardening like you do! Have a great weekend.

That's so interesting you would say that on my blog about exercise and eating more -- because I've often thought the same thing about the SP ranges. I think that I definitely need to stay on the low side of the range, and even that often only produces very meager results when I'm exercising. So I don't get it. The whole calories in = calories out thing must be a little more complicated in my body I'm guessing. Have a great week -- thanks for stopping by my blog!

"Though no one else can guarantee your success, you can guarantee it by making the commitment to do whatever you must do.
You can guarantee it with your intention, your focus, your action and your persistence.
Today, tomorrow, in any place, whatever the situation, you can make a difference, for your own life, and for your world.
Grab that opportunity, make the most of it every chance you get, and you'll guarantee your own success."

Thanks for stopping by my blog about Maya Angelou and her poem. I read I Know Why the Caged Bird Signs a long long time ago -- I should put that back on my reading list for this summer. What a neat person and beautiful writer.

Have a great day!
