Fresh Start. It's well traveled ground. Gain, lose, gain, lose.

Just turned 50. Had a great birthday. My husband treated me like a queen and took me to Hawaii! We swam, snorkeled, surfer (yes surfed!!) snorkled some more, hiked across lava, over black sand beaches, used our four wheel drive rental offroad, snorkeled more, snorkeled at night to see giant manta rays, rode in a submarine and generally had a wonderful time.

But the birthday is over and now my hubby is approaching his 50th birthday. He's a tiny bit younger than me.

He asked for his birthday help in achieving his fitness goals. He wants that last summer of young, so to speak. He may turn 50, but he's hoping to feel young again.

How can I refuse? I'm not going to refuse.

So we have a fresh start. I'm smiling at the thought.

See ya around.

Hi, thanks for writing!

Yes, the Yoga kills me. It's like a long, grueling, torture session. I have to admit, I did Kenpo instead last week (yikes, oops, just felt like I needed more cardio, you know?) But I will definately do the Yoga this week. I'm adding cardio on other days on top of the weights, so I can feel less anxious about it on that one day. Plus, I really do believe yoga is good for me. It helps my back alot, among other things. But the ones I've done in the past are not as hard as Yoga X.

I love running, too!!! It is amazing. You have been running for a long time. Do you run long distances?

I am less sore this week than last. Hopefully you too. I still love p90X. We're gonna kick butt!
