Updated September 2017 - For the 2017 Fall 5% Challenge!

I'm joining another 5% Challenge since it's been awhile!

My fitness goals are to be active 5 days a week - this will be mainly youtube chair videos since I broke my ankle on Labor Day. I also hope to include swimming soon, and walking once cleared by orthopedics.

Food plan: meal tracking with a focus on reducing after dinner eating.

I hope to heal so I can be ready for more trails, cycling and another TRY at the triathlon!

Born in Kansas. Grew up in the SF Bay Area. Living in the Sacramento, CA area which I love. Married with two mischievous yet loving kitties. Worked in public service for 26 years and proud of it. Recently retired and working on taking care of myself and finding out who I am after being work-focused for much of my life.

I love to run but have had injuries over the past years so mainly walk, hike, cycle and swim. I was training for my first triathlon when I broke my ankle (getting into a kayak!) I hope to be able to train for one again. I also like being outside, the ocean, the mountains, animals, especially our two kitties, reading, watching movies and TV series, spending time with my good friends.

    Thank you for stopping by and for the sweet comment you left on my blog. The link to IDM.com with Dr Jason Fung outlines the benefits for fasting and how/when to do it beautifully. Dr Fung is a kidney specialist out of Toronto, Canada who uses it with his patients. He is probably the foremost Dr in the world who uses therapeutic fasting to reverse/combat major illneses. His site has numerous articles and videos on the topic.
    All my best as you continue finding what leads you to better health.
