Project Holly!

1/2016 update: It has been an up and down journey for me, and I'm currently in the "up" position...Bah! My new goal is lose 50 for my 50th (in December 2016), so I need to get busy, drop the excuses, and find my groove again.

Hello all =) My name is Holly, and I'm an avid reader of all things diet and fitness. The problem is, I haven't been an avid follower of any of the great wealth of knowledge I've read!! I'll be 44 in December of 2010, and have decided it is time to put the books down and just get off the couch and get on with getting healthy. I began a walking/jogging program around August/September with the goal of running a 5K in October. I wasn't able to run the entire 5K, but it felt awesome to compete, and now I'm determined to keep working toward that goal. I want to lose 50-60 lbs before my 45th birthday, run a 5K with out walking any of it, and end 2011 being able to compete in a 4 mile, cross country "mud run" in early 12/2011! I've entitled my page "Project Holly" because I need to do this for myself, and not feel guilty that I'm putting the time, effort and $ into these goals. Ready, set, GO!

My Goals:
Updated Goals for 2016:

Work C25K to gain back my running endurance, and find a 5K for the Spring.

Stick to a strength program!

Ultimately, lose 50 for my 50th (December 2016), but I'd love to have a bunch of that accomplished prior to Summer!

My Program:
I signed up for a gym near my office, and work out on my lunch hour. I use Spark to track my calories, and am endeavoring to clean up my diet.

Personal Information:
My name is Holly and I live in a small town in Northern Illinois. I'm married and have a 19 year old son, a golden doodle and two cats =). I'm an avid reader, and have a love of all things crafty - knitting is on the top of the list right now.

Other Information:
While running my first 10K on a hilly course (it was a "run through the hills!"), I used the mantra "lean in," to help carry me up those hills. As i did that, I thought this is the attitude I need to bring to all things health and wellness: when it gets tough, don't back down, lean in
