"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 Maryanne, just wanted to see how you're doing. I am starting to get back on track and hope to stay there. Now that the weather is starting to get nice i am much more inclined to take care of myself. Good thing my hubby and I are moving to Florida in September! Then I won't have any excuses about cold weather. I will however miss going to the Steeler games.

Good Morning!
Yes, that was an awesome game. I was so happy for Fleury too! He's my "celebrity" boyfriend, LOL!
I did see the crowd. Wish life wasn't so busy, or I'd take my older 2 down to watch a game out there.

How are you doing? Are you still doing WW? If so, how is that going? Alright, gotta run! Have a great day!

Hugs,
Beth
