Since the beginning of 2008 my dh & I have been working on making better life choices. This includes what we eat, what we do with our time, and who we spend time with. We've discovered many things in life are not healthy - including food, habits and even some relationships. It's a slow process but at least we are headed in the right direction! I'm so thankful we are doing this together! It's a team effort!

Fitness Minutes: 35,255

My Goals:
I've lost weight in the past, only to get careless and regain. This time is for real! This is for life. I am approaching 50 yrs old and working hard to get in shape!

My Program:
In Feb 2012 I started the C25K program and ran my first 5k at the end of April. Since then I've been learning all I can about running and working to improve. I love it and what it's doing for me! I run 3-4 times a week and do strength training on the alternate days.

I am a little OCD when it comes to logging my food...can't miss a day! Diligently staying in my calorie range.

Personal Information:
Born & raised in MN but now living in Colorado with my husband. We have 2 grown sons.

I work as an admin assistant for a non-profit. I know my desk job has not helped my weight issue. Part of my job is providing lunches & snacks for training events. Being around all the food & treats is a constant battle for me.

Other Information:
I love animals, horses, dogs, cats, rats...you name it. I'm much more comfortable around animals than people. :)

For fun I like to read on my Kindle, go walking, & surfing online.

Thanks for the book goodie. I am ready to start a new one tomorrow when I exercise on the elliptical! How are you doing?

Hi Lois - yes the other horse deal fell apart in the end - the seller ended up having a big side of crazy and I got tired of dealing with it. I think this new horse will be better for me in the long run, and her seller has been wonderful, so I suppose things happen for a reason. Hope you have a great weekend!

Hi! Looks like you are having a fun summer! Isn't Estes great?? We're going to Glenwood in 2 weeks. Can't wait to do Hanging Lake, and find some other (easier) trails, too! The hot springs pool will be great after a couple hours of hiking! Thanks for all your encouragement! Choose Healthy!
