2019 is arriving. I started this journey in July, 2009. I'm pretty sure I'm forever the same scale weight. And my body's broken. And I'm a Grammy now. But, learning consistency has been my goal of sorts since then....and so...Until I hit the big 5-0....I guess I better quit procrastinating and see what will win. Diet and Exercise or plastic surgery.

Either ways, I'm going to look good at 50. And either ways. It'll probably kill me off.

But. That's war baby!!


*I can't believe another year has passed. Goal: consistency. Let's see if I can rock my 49th birthday this year and go into my 50s as a hottie.

um, yeah, ignore that last comment.....

Holy moly were almost 2016

    Looking to stay focused through the upcoming Holiday Season? Want to get connected with a Team to support you through your Journey to a Healthier Lifestyle? If yes, then consider joining the BL Challenge that starts early December. Each week 11 teams of 24 Active, do fun nutritional and fitness challenges. The challenges promote a healthy lifestyle and If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meet your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For the Fall we had Cardio Hoedown, World Series and Sleepathon. I hope that you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Winter challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the “BLUE BIGGEST LOSER” Icon, or copy and paste the link below, or let me know and I can send you an invite. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Chit Chat.
