My 39th birthday was on Monday and as you can imagine that caused me to think about a lot of things. One thing that's been on my mind, but I haven't taken any action on, is losing weight.
I've noticed over the last few months that my clothes are fitting tighter and after stepping on the scale this morning realized that I've gained 15 pounds since last year. That's not the direction I want to be going, so am determined to be more focused on this goal. So my mantra this year is 40 by 40 -- meaning I plan to lose at least 40 pounds by my next birthday.
My first experience with Sparkpeople was several years back, so although I've been a member of the site it has not been an active role at all. Things are changing TODAY!
I'm excited because one of the things that I got for my birthday was the Xbox EA Active 2 game. I've used it the last couple days and done 20 minute workouts each day. This made me realize how un-fit I really am (with my 2 kids running circles around me while I try to do the exercises). But it's been a fun way to get exercise back in my life and I think something that I can keep up with. And I know it's working because I'm sore in several places today.
Don't know how much I will actually blog about things, but any updates I have will be here.
