Me at 50!
Jocelyn & Fil
I have recently turned 50, and battling weight that has crept up on me. My year long journey over a year ago led to a 32 pound weight loss, followed by a 10 pound gain over the winter. Nearly all the rest crept back on over the last year. I am getting back in gear to lose those and start healthier, more permanent goals like eating whole foods (I eat fast food a LOT) and doing more strength training.
I have a goal to run (waddle) a 10K in this year. I have been consistently exercising every day. I am motivated by others who are very fit, yet are not in their desired bodies!
I want to run a 10K, and maybe a half-marathon.
I want to do more cross-training, including biking, Zumba and Yoga.
I walk/jog at least 6 days a week in the Summer, and do core and strength exercises as well.
During the school year, I try to FORMALLY do exercise 3-4 days per week.
I'm from the REAL Midwest, Kansas. I have two daughters, two dogs, and 1 cat. Oh, and a husband! Along with a beautiful granddaughter and two great son-in-laws.
