Fabulous, Fit and Forty+

I experienced my first marathon on March 17, 2013 - The Shamrock Marathon. I've been chasing the marathon dream for three years and I did it.

In January 2008 I set out to lose 100 pounds. I started January 2008 and reached the 100-pound lost on April 28, 2011. My overall health has improved and my fitness level has increased. I would still like to lose another 15 pounds, but we shall see what my body really wants. My main focus now is my running, comtemplating starting ...

In January 2008 I set out to lose 100 pounds. I started January 2008 and reached the 100-pound lost on April 28, 2011. My overall health has improved and my fitness level has increased. I would still like to lose another 15 pounds, but we shall see what my body really wants. My main focus now is my running, comtemplating starting training for another full marathon and toning up the new, lighter body. I have always dreamed of the six pack abs and want to work on toning the arms up a bit too.

SP has been a life changing experience and I am happy to make SPARK a part of my daily life - EVERY DAY, now and forever.

I want to inspire my family and others to lose weight and get fit and healthy.

Thinking of you today. How's that hamstring doing? Coming up on my first Slingshot week. Kind of nervous. I trust Chris, so we'll see what happens. High Carb day for seven days???? Yikes! Today is a cheat day, but I don't even want to. I'm not craving the old stuff anymore. emoticon

Let me know if you find some yummy low carb recipes. Almost everything I've tried from SparkRecipes has been delish! I say delish all the time! emoticon It's true!!!

Have a great weekend. 70s here today and 40s and snow tomorrow. 60s again on Monday. First day of Spring on Thursday. Can't come soon enough! emoticon

How is your week coming along? I'm thinking of you!!! I found lots of yummy low carb recipes on SparkRecipes! You should check some out. The parmesan tilapia was to die for! Good luck with your weigh in. I got another 2 lbs. down this week for a total of 8 so far. Twelve more before Easter Sunday! I can do this! You can, too!!! emoticon Daisy Dukes?
