I thought I had it all figured out... & maybe I did. But apparently I am needing a reminder:

~I need a reminder of how awesome it felt to be in better shape then I am now.
~I need a reminder of how happier & more energetic I was when I worked out regularly.

I do KNOW these things... but still enjoy being involved with team members who are striving for the same goals.

So with that I say again,

Now let's do this =)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~My goal is the same as most others live a long healthy life! SP has proven to be a great tool in the past. Interactive challenges, specifically group/team goals were great motivators.

I have let my home & family life interfere with taking good care of 'me' & it shows... no ones fault but my own! Having moved changed my routine & I tossed in the towel. That was almost 5yrs ago...& I while I have not gained ALL the weight I lost back, I feel like crud. NOT acceptable! I do walk/hike/bike occasionally...but not enough to get the heartrate going like I need to. UG...

Going to lurk around & see if there are any team challenges out there I can join in on. Hoping something starting soon... Like the beginning of May.

On aside note...I have a newer dog (1yr old) whom is extremely high energy. I need to get in shape to keep up with him, LOL! Planning on biking & hiking with him this summer & need to build my endurance so I don't do a face-plant on the bike ;-)

Tone muscles, enduring strength, a relatively flat belly, along with health & energy are my goals...I'm not asking too much, am I? I hope not!
