Summertime.....

It's ironic that now I'm 48 years old, I'm rapidly approaching the best shape of my life. I've been working with a trainer for the last 6 months and he has me doing things I never would have imagined -- deadlifts, weighted squats, etc. When I started refocusing on this journey I weighed in at 154lbs and my body fat was 45%. Now I'm getting cut and my first goal is to get to 125lbs and 22.5% body fat. After that....stay tuned!

Yeah, the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu thing....I had to stop about 2 months ago. I was getting beat up....literally. Besides feeling totally exhausted with everything else I was doing, I was getting bruises & scratches in all sorts of weird places. At 54, in a fairly senior position, showing up at work with bruised arms and scratches down the side of my face raises certain questions.

The good news is that after 4 months of going there with #2 son, he's gained enough confidence and made enough friends that he's self-sustaining....we just renewed his membership for another 6 months and he's getting in to it; I just needed to kick start it for him

My joints are very happy!

Hi Tori!
Thanks for reading and commenting on my blog. The weather DID clear up and we had a nice party to celebrate my niece's graduation.

Thank you so much for your comment on my blog. Hm, I wasn't worried about flying tomatoes... LOL I think part of the reason I'm especially nervous is that I know I'm not much of an expert on the topic. I know enough to get someone started, and that's what this class is supposed to be. But I'm no expert. I'm prepared to say, "That's a good question. Let me get back to you on that." :)
