Oh my gosh! Where is my life going? My last update I was 56 and now I am nearly 63 ~ Same friggin weight though...over weight. My feet & legs have gone from bad to worst but I am still out there doing my old lady jog LOL Just got back from China and yes, it was a difficult course :( Still trying to do one marathon a year and holding my own. I am about ready to retire from retirement though! I actually retired at 55 but spend all but my sleeping hours fund raising for Team Diabetes or Sick Kids! Still have beautiful rescue fur babies only 2 different ones now. I will try to do better and keep this updated a little more frequently. Maybe once a year LOL

My Goals:
I would really like to see 160 - 165. That would put my BMI at the acceptable range.


My Program:
The biggest weight loss came from weight training & diet in the beginning. When I needed to up that energy to get off the plateau I was on, I started running. I went to night school and took the Personal Trainer and Nutrition & Wellness Specialist courses so that I could educate myself.



Personal Information:
My 30 year marriage ended 6 years ago. To get out of that bad place I was in, I started to run. While I dislike running, I hate what diabetics have to go through every day so I started to train for a marathon, running with Team Diabetes. I saw first hand what the disease did to my best friend, my Mom, when it took her life. I run as a tribute to her. My marriage ended and I got over it but not a day goes by that I don't miss my Mom. London, England will be my 5th marathon. I think I am going to try a half. I really dislike running (did I say that already?.) I have heart disease and asthma so I struggle with the running. My goal was to run 5 in 5 years and raise $50,000. I am happy to say, I have met all those goals!


Other Information:
While I do own a TV, I am not a TV watcher but I really like movies and reading. I share my life with a Pyrennes/Husky cross, Tundra and a Rottie, Pheonix. Needless to say, I spend a lot of time going for walks. Sadly both these beauties have passed and my broken heart was put on hold with JJ & Casper both from Great Pyr rescue.
