Hi, I'm Diane! I was really active here for a long time, then I had a baby and life (and excuses) got in the way and I never found my way back. I've been kind of half assing getting back to my weight loss journey, and wanted to get back to food journaling so here I am, back where I started, and hoping to reconnect with old friends and new along the way.

Fitness Goals:
Complete a 5K under 45 minutes

Those are my first few, I'll add more, and maybe some rewards once i think of them!

My Program:
I hit my gym Monday-Friday before work. Not really sure how this night owl turned into a morning exerciser, but it seems to be working, so I'm sticking with it!

I like to do races, usually just 5k's, but I'm completing my second 10k on March 29th, AND I've signed up for the Richmond half marathon in November- EEK! Races keep me motivated to keep training hard.

I still struggle with eating, but tracking my food and trying my best to stick to my SP ranges. I'm just trying to trust the process, even when I don't see any changes. I know if I'm patient it will continue to pay off.

Personal Information:
Glen Allen, VA

I'm married, no kids yet. I do have two nieces and two nephews. And we have two fur babies- a ginger tomcat named Jean-Luc and a grey/tortie tabby called Unna. I work full time for a mortgage company.

I love to read, I write a bit (although I haven't in a long time) and also love music. I dabble a little in sewing/crocheting/embroidary. I enjoy medieval history.

I'm totally a Doctor Who junkie, and an Anglophile in general. BBC America can be a problem in my life. ;)

I adore Firefly as well.

Haven't played in a while, but I enjoy a good game of D&D, as well. It's actually how I met my husband! :D

Other Information:
One decision at a time.
This is the motto of my life.

"I am a leaf on the wind, watch how I soar" is my mantra.

    Thank you for your happy thoughts! They worked! The marathon was awesome and fun and DONE! LOL! It was crazy hot, but it feels like a distant memory now. I couldn't walk down stairs the first day after and I winced the second day, but other than that, I feel great! I am looking at another in June :-)

    How are you feeling, mother-to-be?

    That bankers cabinet was crazy amazing. It was like 7 feet tall. I can just imagine organize all of my spices in that thing! I'd need to buy MORE SPICES!!!

    And Southern Seasons is definitely dangerous, they have an entire candy department! (They're a little pricy though, so I managed not to buy anything. My aunt and uncle bought The Hubs and I a $15 tin of cookies, and I was so gobsmacked they would spend $15 on ONE TIN of cookies, but those cookies are like manna from heaven. SO GOOD.)
