"A Day in the Life of Mugsy"

Here I go on my road to weight loss. Where did this weight come from?! Once I hit the big 4-0 I've noticed my body undergoing many changes and shifts. Now, at my all-time heaviest, I am embarking on a new groove to getting thinner and healthier. I am generally a very positive woman and can always see the good in things - even when it seems bad. Although I have a long road ahead of me I feel that I can succeed. I want to live a long healthy life and that starts today! Keeping things real ...

My Goals:
My goals are many but first and foremost I want to strive to be a positive influence on others - my children, family, and friends. I want to remain as healthy as possible and be a good role model to others. I strive to laugh a lot each day and make others laugh, too. The world is so serious that we can all use some cheeful chuckling to enhance our days. My weight loss goal is now to lose a total of 50 pounds...even if it's a slow loss...it will all be well worth it. I continue to chug the "high-quality H2O" as I've been doing - 8-10 glasses a day. And last, but not least, I will try to remember to do things to make me a happy person - things for me...I'm not being selfish but as the saying goes - "If Mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy!"

My Program:
At least 4 days of cardio (jogging/walking on treadmill) along with 3 days of strength training. I also strive to eat at least 5 fruits/vegetables each and every day! I also try to sneak in exercises throughout the day while at work. I recently joined Weight Watchers and I love their program. I am averaging 1.2 pound weight loss each week. It's coming off...slowly but surely.

Personal Information:
I live in Pittsburgh, PA - a wonderful place to live! I have two teenage children - a boy and a girl. I am married and also have a miniature schnauzer - Barnaby. I work full-time at a prominent Pittsburgh hospital as a fellowship coordinator for 12 hematology/oncology fellows. I am currently trying to deal with my son going off to college in the fall 2013 :( and my daughter will follow right behind him in fall 2014.

Other Information:
I love to spend time working outdoors in my yard. I am an avid birdwatcher and just love being outdoors. Camping and hiking are two of my favorite hobbies.

Hi MaryAnn! It's been far too long since I've stopped by to say hello and to see how you are doing! So, how are you doing?

Was that a color run that you did last year? Emily (my 16 yo) wants us to sign up and run one over in SouthPark in October. Think we might just do that! It would be fun to run it together.

I hope everything is well with you and the family and that you are enjoying your summer! Glad to see the humidity go down a little! Enjoy your Sunday!

Hugs,
Beth

Good Morning my friend!
I don't know, but I don't like it. I did hear them saying last night that in 91 this happened as well...we lost the first 2 at home and then won the next 4 in a row. So maybe we'll do it again? We do seem to like tradition. AND we won the cup that season. Fingers crossed!

Hope everything else is well. Do you have one graduating this year? My oldest will be a junior in the fall. We have 7 more days of this year, counting today. I'm ready! I think, LOL!

Have a great day!!
Hugs,
Beth

Good Morning! So awesome to hear from you my friend!! How are you? Love the background. DH and I were so sad to watch the series finale...we didn't want it to end. But it was cool how they eneded it. Pam and Jim all better, Dwight and Angela getting married, and her revealing that the baby was his. LOL! So fun!

Anyway...so it's Saturday and it's time for the playoffs! I'm so excited!!
