There is no trophy for reaching a New Years Resolution, but there is great satisfaction in knowing I followed through with my commitment and now I am living a new lifestyle.

January 15, 2014 is my one year anniversary committing to a healthy weight and healthy. I lost 30 lbs this year, and I have been maintaining now for 18 weeks, and maintained successfully from Halloween to New Years. Thatís a biggie for me! Last year at this time, I threw myself into HIIT and Cardio on the treadmill to jumpstart my weight loss. Now I am regularly road running, racing, and training for my first HM! I did many firsts this past year, it has given me a new outlook, and I am pledging to continue my healthy lifestyle in 2014. I ran my first 5K (3 total), 4M(2), 5M, and 10K (2). My litmus test to being fit is I successfully completed the 8 mile turnaround, with a 635 ft climb, Rave Run up and down the Sabino Canyon Road, Tucson, just last week. I could not have done this a year ago when I started this journey. It was a great way to start the New Year.

Running is a passion for me now. I began road running, at age 52, in March of 2013, after walking for 2 years. I needed a challenge, a change, and a stress relief. Running does it all.

Maintenance here I am. I am here to stay!

Thanks for commenting on my blog. I definitely have been doing too much. There is a bug going around. I have been out of the house most of the time, I must have picked it up somewhere. The ginger mix did clear my head and my stomach, this nagging itchy/sore throat is no fun!!

I am going to take Theraflu tonite and see if I can knock it out!!

Congratulations on your new PR! That is so cool that you and your daughter obtained new PRs together!
