A Healthier Me

I want to have a healthier heart and be in the best shape of my life. My goal is not only to lose the weight, but to keep maintaining this as a lifestyle.

I fractured my ankle Nov. 2010, and learned during the time I was in crutches that I previously took walking/running and fitness for granted. I now have a new outlook and want to change for good.

I run now, and love it very much. I don't want to ever stop getting outside on my two feet and want to keep enjoying ...

I run now, and love it very much. I don't want to ever stop getting outside on my two feet and want to keep enjoying the scenery.

I want to run a marathon someday, too! One day at a time, I'll be closer to that goal.

Dawn, thank you for reading my blog and the nice comments. I will admit using the measuring system on my program was a little bit of a hassel at first. After a while it becomes a habit.. My snacks like nuts or seeds I premeasure for the week in the little ziplock snack baggies. Let me know how things work out for you.

HUGS
Debbie
