Wow, I updated this last October and everything about it still holds true. How sad is that. Except maybe I'm winning the battle with those last seven pounds - if I can keep them off. I'm definitely going to start running again.

As part of my over all goal - To be in better shape at 50 than I was at 40 - is my smaller goal - To run a half marathon for my 50th birthday. Wa hoo!!!

And my next, smaller goal - To get this weight off before the holiday, keep it off through the holidays and through the next year. Okay, maybe not so small a goal? Stay tuned... this is going to be fun!!!

This page is definitely in need of an update....

I'm still here - probably a couple of years later. Still battling those last five to seven pounds... I'm starting to run again so I feel hopeful. This time I'm also trying to do the strength training that supports my running goals. I have such a hard time staying committed to that part.

Despite popular opinion, I believe we can have the bodies we want - regardless of our age - if we're committed to working for it. I'm working on that commitment.

My Goals:
Time to think about my goals again.

I'd still like to get to 138 pounds and maintain that weight.

I want to be able to run a half marathon in September, 2012.

My Program:
I try for a low-calorie, well balanced vegan - diet. My net calorie target is 1,000 or so (don't freak out - that's what happens in your forties!)

I am re-committed to exercising at least 30 minutes every day. I am doing the coolrunnings "Couch to 5K" plan again working towards being a half-marathoner before spring, 2012.

Personal Information:
I'm from Maryland where I live with Rob the Wonderful. Our hobbies are - primarily riding motorcycles and cooking. Both of those things tend towards gaining weight. We're working on how to enjoy both and be healthy at the same time.
