The Adventure Continues!!

2013 UPDATE

Been pretty steady on SP for a year now and have lost about 35 pounds!!!

I've worked up from just walking ~3 miles to running 3.5 to 4 miles and walking 6 or 10.
I've gone from a size 18 to a size 12/14.
And I've gone from dragging myself onto the couch after work - with all the strength I had left for the day - to being able to go strong almost every night until 11 and sometimes later!

The exercise has stayed very consistent ...
2013 UPDATE

And I've gone from dragging myself onto the couch after work - with all the strength I had left for the day - to being able to go strong almost every night until 11 and sometimes later!

The exercise has stayed very consistent through the year, but I stopped being as careful about my eating around June. As a result, I haven't lost significant weight since June. I'm back on that wagon now, so let's see what new changes will result in 2013!!

2012 was all about turning 50 and all sailing all the time from about May on. I didn't get my Old Rag hike in, mostly because weather/schedule didn't align. But we'll see what I manage to pull off this year. :)

2012 Profile

I've been around the block several times. I'm hoping that this time will stick. I'm pretty tired of my weight being in charge of my life.

I've got a great family, a great job, and awesome friends who share my interest in camping, kayaking, sailing, biking, and hiking and are all pretty much up for trying anything outdoors. I live in the DC area, so we have unlimited activities, with oceans to the right of us, mountains to the left of us and everything else to do in between.

I want to hike Old Rag, run 5Ks, and join my friends on 30-50 mile bike rides.

I'm looking very forward to seeing what changes this adventure brings.

Dressed up little creatures
On a dark October night
Run from door to door
Giving everyone a fright.

They come and ring your doorbell
And before they will retreat,
They beg you for some candy
By yelling "trick or treat".

When their bags are full,
They run home to eat their fill.
They taste a bit of everything
And by morning they are ill!

So to keep the youngsters healthy,
I've figured out a deal.
This year instead of candy,
I'll give them all oatmeal!

Wishing you a Happy Halloween!
