Some Goals for 2016:
#1 goal is get back under 2freakinhundred lbs
Exercise, exercise, exercise.
Cardio and strength 'em and log 'em

I'm 42 and I've struggled with my weight since I was in middle school...I had a few "normal weight" years in my 20s but school and work (as well as medications to treat migraines and seasonal depression) conspired against me and I've gained crazy amounts of weight in just a few years. Common story....and I'm sick of it!

My first major goal is to get back under 200#. The second is another 25# to get to the weight I was when I started dating the super guy who is now my husband. That is really far from where I am now....and it is taking me literally years to do it because I have a short attention span and a serious love of wine and food! Slow is ok, I can live with that, but I need to be more consistent and keep nudging that #$%$ scale DOWN!

2013/2014/2015 was a major derailment for me. I tore my gastroc in the summer of 2013 which meant no half marathon...and the crutches were brutal. I have had a series of miscarriages which got me further off track in terms of mood/motivation/energy. I've had enough of this....I need to reset my whole frame of mind!

    I love how you are on such good terms with your treadmill, that you call her "Millie." That made me smile. What kind is it?

    You are, indeed, correct: The sun peeked out down south of you, too. But it is still bone-chilling cold. Could be worse: We could be in the Midwest. I, too, await the next snowfall. I finished stocking up on essentials today. But if the next storm is anything like the last, we don't have too much to worry about down here in NYC. This "Henny Penny the sky is falling" really grows old. And then the "Storm to end all storms" totally circumvented us. Ha!

    But I have battened down the hatches. I hope you stay warm, too.

    The temp's gone up. It is now a balmy ten degrees. I live where the two rivers cross, so it tends to be colder here, too.

    Give me heat any ol' day!

    Stay warm, and keep your fingers thawed.

    No, it's not SP's fault. The "good" treadmill became available and I switched over. It's kind of like tracking every morsel, when noting all that was eaten. I actually wanted to do 100 minutes, but the treadmill does not go beyond 99 minutes. What a shock!

    Happy new year. We'll get there, just you wait and see.
