I did it before and I can do it again. It's just a matter of making the time.

Member Since: 7/4/2008

Fitness Minutes: 139,520

My Goals:
Recommitting to sleep, in bed by 9 at least half the time and averaging 7 hours a day.
Working on consistent strength training. I lost a lot of strength when I adjusted to my NYC schedule, and I want to be as strong again at 49 as I was at 47. Noticing that it's a lot harder to regain strength lost than to keep it when you have it!
Getting 14K steps a day and at least 22 flights of stairs pretty consistently, but need to slowly ramp up the time in high intensity challenges to my cardiovascular system.
Sorting out how to cook when my workday starts and ends before and after the local grocery stores open and close and where I can only occupy 1/6 of the refrigerator space.
Wanting to feel as confident at the beach this summer as I did in 2016.
Working on graduating from the assisted pull-up machine to a plain old bar. Learning ballroom dance and ice hockey.
Sewing a wardrobe that fits my goal weight body.
House sold, now finalizing my divorce, and starting over in New York.

My Program:
A monthly challenge on my super supportive SEM team: a fitness goal, a nutrition goal, and a geeky goal.
And weekly accountability with my X-Weighted Cruisin' for Losin' team.
And to never get a UTI again, daily supplementation with D-mannose

Personal Information:
Born and raised in Columbus (Go Bucks!)
Chicago is home

    Looking for a Fun Challenge this Summer? 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 June. 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 Spring we had Gardening Time, Help Fill Peter Rabbit’s Basket and Bingo. If you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Summer 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.
