Time to quit waiting for the next phase of life before getting healthy. Seems like I have always been waiting for the perfect time to get fit and lead a healthier life. Well the time to start is now!!! On July 19, 2010 ,I finally quit smoking and no more excuses - it's time to be a healthier me for good!

So, if 2010 was the year I quit smoking, then 2011 will be the year I quit making excuses for not eating healthy and exercising regularly. I turn 55 this year and that is reason enough to maintain a healthy lifestyle! I want to continue to be able to live life to the fullest and enjoy my family and friends. That means building better habits and making adjustments for this changing body! Creaky joints are not an option!!!!!
