I just want to feel fit, healthy, and powerful again. It's been too long!

Member Since: 5/18/2010

My Goals:
Long-term goal: get back to 125 - I really think I can do it!! Then I get to go on a shopping spree.

3/10/11: I've changed my goal to 120 - which I always wished I was. Now I know there's no reason I can't do it!

Short-term goals:
142 new sneakers DONE
139 new sports bra DONE
136 new sports bra DONE

Since I've hit the above weights, at 130 I get an evening out with DH - dinner AND a movie. DONE

Short-term goal: get to the end of Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred. Then I get to start Hip Hop Abs. DONE

125 New linens for bed.


120 Hair treatment.

Get some kind of exercise every day.

Do a real workout at least four times a week, weights or video.

Keep my cholesterol down. No meds ever!

Drink wine no more than once a week except on vacation.

Keep my house clean enough that I'm never embarrassed if someone drops by.

Be consistent with my kids - do they ha

My Program:
Drink 8 glasses of water a day.

Ride as close to every day as possible.

Lift weights and/or do a video at least four times a week.

Be conscious of getting enough sleep.

Walk at least 4 nights a week.

Post my weight every Wednesday - good or bad.

Personal Information:
Originally from New York, we've been living in Boulder since 1998. Three kids 12, 10, and 8, the nicest people in the whole wide world. I'm homeschooling the 10-year-old until middle school. We have three dogs and two horses.

Other Information:
Started a book group 12 years ago that's still going strong! Favorite books, anyone?

    I am so touched by your lovely comment on my blog... so appreciated! BTW, I have had my levels checked and all is fine on the medical front. I am more than sure that this is a situational thing - there is a real need to 1) change the situation and 2) change the way I react to the situation. Whether I like it or not, it starts and ends with me :-)

    Not sure I'll be sending you a recipe just yet, but I will be finding something that makes me feel like 'the me I like'!

    Sooo good to hear from you! Thanks for responding on my page....

    It sounds like you are doing remarkably well! And I wanna know how you worked up that 6 pack! emoticon I'm still slogging away trying to get mine emoticon When I'm not making 'progress' I keep myself on the positive side by reminding myself that maintaining my fitness is all I really need to do - I can step on the gas and give a big push when the time is right.

    Keep your fitness up - it will stand you in great stead during what sounds like a bit of a challenging stretch. Hope you're handling the changes and arrival of your mom alright.

    Had to chuckle about the Cliff bars! Good thing is it got me busy this morning making home-made 'workout cookies' that are super easy and replace a Cliff bar quite nicely. Let me know if you're interested and I'll gladly share the recipe. I'm sure all of the ingredients cost me about as much as 2 bars!

    Hi there! Just saw your status change pop 'not making progress' do you mean in terms of weight loss? If that's the case it could be because you are so much closer to your goal. They tell you the loss will slow as you get close to goal....and it does, big time! It is now taking me a month or longer to lose a single pound....and I have to be very consistent with exercise.

    Anyway, I may be off track but thought I'd chime in!
