It's Okay to "Begin Again"

In 2009 I completed my first and last sprint triathlon. I say last because I don't believe my knees will let me run much anymore, but I'm willing to keep an open mind.

I lost about 24 pounds during the course of the year in preparation for the tri. Got down to just under 130 pounds. I looked and felt pretty awesome.

Turn the clock ahead five years, and I'm up just over 15 pounds from that time. I know people say if you only gain 3 pounds a year (doesn't sound like ...

Well, it's time to get back on track. Being a full-time elementary school librarian doesn't make it easy, but if it were easy we would not be a nation of fatties, now would we?

Oh, Lynn, a great big hello once again and welcome back! I am still teaching, too. Retirement will be probably at the end of next year. I broke my ankle in the spring and my kneecap in November. It's been a hard last few months! I am doing so much physical therapy and water aerobics trying to regain mobility. How great that you have your sisters to follow along with you. Only one of mine is interested and one is still tiny. I hope the other will join in good healthy habits at some point.

Keep in touch!!

Mary
