Sparking since 2009! My journey here has seen many different nutrition and fitness programs and my weight and size has fluctuated up and down. As of right now, I'm just trying to be as healthy and fit as possible as I enter the last year of my 40's. I'm no longer looking to be a certain number on the scale, but aiming to look and feel fabulous and confident in my own skin. And to be strong and toned.
I love and enjoy fitness! I became a runner when I quit smoking in 2009. I have run numerous races including 2 Half Marathons. Currently I am easing back into running after being out 3 months with an injury.
I have really gotten into lifting weights consistently at the gym (Jim Stepponi programs). Lifting is teaching me patience, determination, discipline, and confidence. I'm excited to see where it takes me in 2017. Think *TRANSFORMATION*. That's the goal.

    Hi Lori,
    Looks like you're doing great! I'm getting back into the groove and thought SP would be the best way to motivate myself. You have always been an inspiration so I'm going to keep an eye on you!
    Hope your health is good - happy Spring!

    Hi Lori, I'm alright and went for a bike ride today. 😁 the weather very pleasant for biking, not too hot. Today I went to a Japanese food market and will prepare more of these light nutritious foods. You're amazing, yr determination; I'm your fan.

    Hi Lori! So good to hear from you! I'm doing great. My bendy challenge is going really well. I'm still discovering all of the things my body has never done before lol. It's very interesting! I can't believe how weak my upper muscles are, except for my biceps and shoulders...which apparently are the only muscles I've strengthened over the years. So any attempts to do those handstand things are pretty scary lol. I hope your lifting is going well! You look great! As for being ashamed over thinking "weed", I would think that being a gardener and having to have dealt with these weeds over the years, I would think "weed", too....and maybe even snarl at it. So no shame should be felt! And I agree with you completely that it's never too late to blow wishes. I hope you have a wonderful weekend, lady!
