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 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!

I wish I had thought of a Day earlier, would have maybe put something together here in Salem. I have got to try and connect to other members in my area and see if we can't unite.
We had may Day celebrations when I went to grade school. Plus my sister had a may birthday and she got to have a May pole a couple of times. Of course i was jealous for my birthday was jus before Christmas and never even got a party. Plus got Christmas and birthday combined presents. I always wanted a summer birthday.
Today is a beautiful day here in Salem for May Day celebrations. Going to reach 88*. Sunny blue skies, just fab.
Oh well guess I'll go out to the park, celebrate with Titan. Might still wear a few flowers in my hair. maybe I can dance around the jungle gym.
Have a great day,
Hugs Tisha emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
