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 be smaller, but probably harder to reach.

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

1/27/15: I reached my goal of 50 pounds! Now I've made a new one of 30 more.... We'll see. I run 1 mile 3 times a week now. I'm still amazed... I even ran a 5K on the treadmill the other day. I now want to concentrate on what I eat, not just how much.

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

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



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 strength training but I love doing it. I love the way you can still feel it hours later.

I run 1 mile 3 times a week. I do upper and lower strength training 2-3x a week.

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.

    You can do it on your treadmill or just walking in your neighborhood. I signed up for a 5k - did it on my hike this morning. emoticon
