How’s this for embarrassing? On Thursday, January 23, 2020, I celebrated ten years of healthy living. Ten years that began with losing 160 pounds, and then keeping a majority of it off ever since. It’s a huge, impressive milestone… that I completely forgot about.
What an awful oversight! Halfway through that day, I Read the rest of this entry »

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a delightful holiday season. Here’s a really awesome Christmas present that my sister-in-law Alexis gave me: a portrait of me and JJ as characters on “The Simpsons!” I love it so much.
Now let’s get into it. Time for my yearly wrap up. Time for my 2019 Year-End Progress Report! Read the rest of this entry »

I’m less than 48 hours away from completing the biggest fitness undertaking of my life. On Saturday morning, I’ll be competing in my 40th race of the year. It’ll be the final race of my #40years40races challenge and while I’m excited to compete, I’m even more excited for it to be over.

Happy New Year! My 2019 rolled in with a nasty cold that completely sidelined me for four days. I’m still not 100% feeling better, but the congestion is gone, I’ve begun exercising again, and all that’s left is a sore throat that makes me sound like present-day Kathleen Turner.
But before I rush forth, whole-hog, into the new year, I have some housekeeping to do with 2018. This annual post is one of my favorites, and I can’t wait to jump into… My 2018 Year-End Progress Report!
One of my favorite photos from 2018.

I’m a few days late with my August weigh-in post, because my LASIK surgery has been top of mind this week. And I’m over a month late with my July weigh-in post, because I jumped on a plane to Michigan the day after my weigh-in and didn’t have time to write that post. Let’s tackle both months at once.

The other day I was working from home, sitting in my living room, my laptop on my lap. I was updating a spreadsheet when the quiet was punctured by a sudden, horrific crash. There was a violent clanging of medal, and a heavy thud, and then it was quiet again. It only took a second to realize that my rack of race medals had fallen off the wall.
Damn, it was scary! I startle easily, and Read the rest of this entry »

I can’t believe it’s been almost two months since I started my much-needed exercise break. Although I didn’t know what to expect when I started it, I had some vague thoughts that by now I’d be back at full capacity. And I’m not. Ultimately, I’m fine with that. I’m staying active, and my thinking has evolved.
This post is about how it’s all going, what I’m doing now, and the nasty voices in my own head. Read the rest of this entry »
