I did it before and I can do it again. It's just a matter of making the time.

Member Since: 7/4/2008

Fitness Minutes: 158,582

My Goals:
Recommitting to sleep, in bed by 9:30 every work night
Working on consistent strength training. I lost a lot of strength when I adjusted to my NYC schedule, and I want to be as strong again at 49 as I was at 47. Noticing that it's a lot harder to regain strength lost than to keep it when you have it!
Getting 14K steps a day and at least 22 flights of stairs pretty consistently, but need to slowly ramp up the time in high intensity challenges to my cardiovascular system.
Sorting out how to cook when my workday starts and ends before and after the local grocery stores open and close and where I can only occupy 1/6 of the refrigerator space.
Wanting to feel as confident at the beach this summer as I did in 2016.
Working on graduating from the assisted pull-up machine to a plain old bar. Learning ballroom dance and ice hockey.
Sewing a wardrobe that fits my goal weight body.
House sold, now finalizing my divorce, and starting over in New York.


My Program:
A monthly challenge on my super supportive SEM team: a fitness goal, a nutrition goal, and a geeky goal.
And to never get a UTI again, daily supplementation with D-mannose www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23633128

    Hi, I have not seen you in any of the posts recently and wanted to check up on you. I hope you are okay, just possibly busy. Just wanted you to know you are missed and thought of.

    I'm getting the puns on Facebook. There's a pun site that a friend shared some puns from, so I followed it. I thought if I didn't have anything else to share, that might give others a smile - or a groan, depending on how bad they are!
