HAPPY NEW YEAR! The new year excites me, because it means my anniversary is in a few weeks. I’ll soon be starting my SEVENTH year on my weight loss journey, and I’m still going strong. I’m so proud that I’ve lost 160 pounds and kept it off for two-thirds of a decade!

I’m back home in Los Angeles. I had a wonderful trip, but it feels so good to be sleeping in my own bed again, for the first time in six weeks. Kinda hard to believe it’s been so long, but as the cliched saying goes, time flew by. Good thing I Read the rest of this entry »

Surprise, surprise! I ran a 10K race over the weekend! And in a beautiful setting. Check out these views!
There are two countries in that photo. Downtown Detroit, part of the good ol’ U.S. of A., is on the right, while the buildings on the left are in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. HELLO, CANADA! And I’m standing on Belle Isle, in the middle of the Detroit River. Belle Isle was the venue for the race, which makes sense, because the race was called “Escape to Belle Isle.”

I hope everyone had a great Independence Day! I’ve been traveling all over the midwest since my last post, going from Chicago to Springfield, Illinois (I have a special post coming about this stop) to St. Joseph, Michigan to suburban Detroit, where I’m writing this now. I spent the actual holiday in St. Joseph, where more than 20 members of my family congregated. Fun at the beach…
That’s my sandcastle!

After a fantastic weekend at the Fitbloggin’ conference in Denver, I continued east, ending up in St. Joseph, Michigan, a town on Lake Michigan with gorgeous, sandy beaches. My mom grew up in this area, and it’s the perfect place for our family to meet up for a relaxing week.
Oh, by the way, I’m writing this from Terminal 3 at O’Hare, where my flight home has been delayed over two hours. It’s a faint smudge on an excellent week, and, in all honesty, if my flight was on time I wouldn’t have gotten this post up for another day… so my flight delay is your gain! You’re welcome!
