Maintaining my weight loss, enjoying my exercise. Floating along over and under 20% body fat which works well for me given it's not bikini season.
Spending a lot of 'energy' on decluttering and housework. Now that exercise is habit, I need to see if I can make keeping house habit. I detest housework. I doubt I will ever enjoy it (like I do exercise) but I DO enjoy a clean and orderly house. That's my focus!
Happy to report that I'm regularly running 5K in under 30' on the treadmill now. Working on speed so I do some intervals at 7MPH and, just today, started doing some at 7.5MPH. It will be warm before I know it!
Last weekend DH and I started a batch of wine at a local shop where you make wine on the premises and then we went out to dinner at a new restaurant 'in town'. It was very nice. We have reservations for The Melting Pot next weekend. This weekend we're going to do more 'family date' type stuff.

Just be. I give myself permission to be whatever it is I need to be in the moment. I've had a year+ maintaining and even longer peaking, stepping back, peaking again in terms of strength/body fat/definition. I am in a happy place with my weight and fitness and this year I don't want to set any grand goals other than to be as happy and content as I can be in my daily life.
Today I am looking forward to nacho and movie night with the family tonight, my daughter's basketball game tomorrow, and my son's track meet on Sunday.
Stay warm my friends :-)

It's been a while!
Hurricane Sandy didn't come very close to us but it did leave us without power. And when power was restored, my computer was damaged. Probably either when the power went out or came back. DH, luckily, has lots of experience building and rebuilding computers and was able to figure out what was damaged (power supply and a memory chip) and get me up and running again.
Life has been NUTS! But I'm still maintaining.... in fact I've been under goal a LOT lately.... bouncing up only when I've had a lot of salt or refined carbs. Not doing as much running because I've had to miss days at the gym due to long volunteering gigs, hospital trips, etc, but I'm still getting my strength training in and running when I can. Body fat is finally dropping so I'm half tempted to not go back to quite so much running.
So... I'm back. It'll take a bit to get back in the swing of things. Looking forward to catching up with everyone!
