Wish I could write a long post

Wednesday, December 05, 2012

This is kind of a placeholder blog to say that I'm still here & thinking hard about how best to manage my health & fitness in the coming weeks/months. I ended the fall 5% challenge with ignominious failure, forgetting even to record my final weight, which had gone up a tad again.

But of course that's not the end of the story. I have done plenty of exercise thus far this week & have been eating the way I should. I'm thinking that the best strategy for a while will be to challenge MYSELF instead of depending on team challenges that are sometimes extraneous to my goals & schedule. (But I still love you, Starfishies!)

The photos from my recent quick trip to Colombia for my brother's wedding remind me of wonderful, sweet, hilarious, nurturing times--but also remind me that I still need to lose a bit of weight & tone up. One of my inheritances from my mom is chubby upper arms. I won't ever be able to make them look trim & toned; they just refuse. But they can be a bit trimmer than they are now!

I'm going to work on it. More soon.

In the meantime, here's my so-happy-to-see-you reunion with my daughter, who lives in Colombia:

And here I am with niece, brother, & sister, pausing in the midst of a delicious hike through a nature park on the side of a mountain:

    Your photos are gorgeous!!!

And the 5% challenge was a mess for me, too. I started it higher than I'd ever been, and finished it even higher than that.

But you are still gonna Starfish next time, right???
