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.

Thanks for the Goodie! - Yes I live in Phoenix, AZ. Rain here was crazy Monday. The I-10 was shut down because of flooding. Lucky for me I live close to work and don't have to use the Highways. emoticon We could get more rain next week and some parts of the valley haven't dried out yet.

I know Sadie didn't look to thrilled in her Thunder Shirt. But it has helped somewhat. She is still scared but she doesn't run around trying to hide while crying the whole time. I'm hoping she'll get used to it. We had several storms over the weekend, and she is really good and stands still and lets me put it on her. So wish us luck.

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!
