7/16/16: After losing 45 lbs, much of the weight has crept back over the past 2 years. But what's done is done--heck, we all know maintaining weight-loss is an uphill battle. What's important is what I do about it today and tomorrow and in the months to come. In two years, I'll turn 50, and I want to greet that day being the healthiest, strongest, most energetic "me" I can be.

8/15/16 update: I lost 10 lbs in the first month! I'm tracking what I eat (even if I overdid it) and being mindful of both food and activity levels. I have regained strength and flexibility through yoga and walking, and feel so much better!

It's a relief to be 25% of the way to my goal. A long way to go, but it sure is better than a month ago, standing at the foot of the mountain and taking that first, small step.

Fitness Minutes: 15,475

My Goals:
Aim to lose an average of 1.5 lbs per week. Improve cardio fitness, strength, flexibility and balance. Start running intervals again, work up to running 1.5 miles by mid-October.

My Program:
Walk the dog. Do yoga in the park on Saturday mornings. Hike. Strength train at the gym, focusing on improving my weak left hip and leg. Try more of those short SP workout videos! And start running again--intervals at first, working up to 20 minute runs. Track what I eat and drink. Have fun, seek inspiration and encouragement, and keep my eyes on the prize!

Personal Information:
I guess the good thing about being under-employed right now is that I have a lot of extra time on my hands to work out and track everything I eat.
