In 2009 I lost 50 pounds...and found 40 of them. I came back in January 2014 with a goal. Exercise 10 mins a day. I started with that and slowly incorporated hiking. I love hiking and have had the opportunity to explore many places around the world but there was one hike that I had never done and along with my husband we set our goal to do the Grouse Grind, lovingly referred to as "Natures Stair Master", this summer. On August 16, 2014 I reach a 70 pound weight loss and finished the Grind with my amazing husband by my side.

My next goal. Run a Spartan Race. In September 2015 I finished my first Spartan, 7.5K up the side of a ski hill with 20 obstacles. I can't wait to do another one! Lately I've taken up rock climbing. I love what losing weight has brought to my life, I can't imagine ever wanting to give this up.

Then you know, life happens and I gained back 38 pounds. But I turned it back again and I'm excited to say that I'll be going to Ireland in September and running my first half marathon in September 2018.

My Goals:
Run my first half marathon! Race is booked for September 22, 2018 at the Giants Causeway in Ireland.



My Program:
Meal planning.

Focus on cooking with fresh herbs from the garden and veggies from the farmers markets. No more pre-packaged quick meals.

Adding exercise and being accountable for the good and the bad.

Other Information:
What started with a commitment to 10 mins a day of exercise has lead to 5K races, a Spartan race and now rock climbing. I never made any huge changes, but keep evolving. I'm excited to see where I go next!
