August 2014 Will Be Here Before I Know It

I have been overweight most of my adult life. I am almost 40 and it's time to get healthy. Heart disease, diabetes run in my family but not for me! No thank you. I'm learning to like good food and crave working out. My favorite activity is walking and workout videos and cycling. I bravely broke out the rollerblades after 10 years and it was fun.
2014 will be my year. . .

I started my lifestyle journey when I was turning 40 as well. That year I lost 40 pounds for my 40th and to celebrate I did a two day bike ride. Out of the 150 miles I did 78 miles. Was very proud but unhappy at the same time. I've lost and gained in the last 11 years but it's all been worth it. Today I'm 51 and still meeting my goals. You got this!

Oh no.... I'm sorry that your knee started hurting. Doesn't it stink when you want to do something & the body doesn't cooperate?! Hopefully yours will just need a rest - fingers crossed for you! And yes, I liked my mini workout.... maybe if I do it a few times a day I'll feel like I'm actually doing something for the body :)

Hope you have a fabulous day!
