Staying Focused!!

I am in my fourth year of living a healthy life style!!
I celebrated my three year anniversary with SparkPeople February 12, 2014. I reached my goal weight on 2/7/12 - almost a year to the day I joined SparkPeople!! Sometimes my weight goes up a little bit, but I manage to drop it back down and maintain with different challenges on the SparkPeople web site, the support of my SparkBuddies as well as future physical goals.

I started off with walking. If you would have told me three years ago that I would have run a 5k, I would have never believed it!

As of today, I have run 5ks, 10k's, 2 ten milers, and 5 Half Marathons! Funny how fast one's perspective can change...even for us middle-aged people!

The biggest things that stand out to me are my energy level and my confidence to try new physical activities.

I have eaten a lot healthier over the past three years. I love the food and fitness tracker app on my iphone. It helps me to stay consistent and on track.

Foot is much better! Thanks for asking...posting a new blog today on last week's training and I included foot updates :) Long story short- I was able to run long distances with relatively little soreness, so quite optimistic at this point!

That half marathon was so super hilly! I still had a fun week-end with the girls, but holy moly that was tough! I am very pleased that I still finished in 2:21.27, I think that is respectable considering how difficult of a course it was. There was a 250 ft climb during mile 3, it was almost exactly .67 miles UP!

So glad you got to see your son and that he is doing great!!
