Marvelous Part Two

I've been here before. But, in the interest of letting go and making a fresh start, I'm beginning again.

I've been studying diligently to become the photographer I've always dreamed of being. I want to create the most beautiful art. But I've become so focused on this that I hadn't realized that I haven't been in more than five (undeleted) photos over the past five years.

I've been studying diligently to become the photographer I've always dreamed of being. I want to create the most beautiful art. But I've become so focused on this that I hadn't realized that I haven't been in more than five (undeleted) photos over the past five years. During a workshop, the instructors spoke about the importance of "existing in photos" for your children and their children. For the first time, I felt a compelling desire to be a subject in my own work. This will take work on my skills, but also on myself.

My 46-year-old body needs some love and a rebirth into something fit and useful for the things I've been longing to do. I want to hike and photograph freely and run 5 Ks and wear the t-shirts.

So, join me, if you will, as I leave behind all of the times I've started and stopped. I really feel like there's nothing else in my way.

God, help me!

My Goals:
I need to lose a lot of weight, but my goal is to be fit and small so that I will be able to do all of the outdoorsy things I very much long to do.

Goals:

First things first: -20 lbs.

-50 lbs. by the time school starts in the fall.




My Program:
I'm using my Body Media Fit armband to stay on track with my exercise and calories.

I walk and ride my indoor bike so that I can be ready to ride outside this Summer.

I've been married for twenty-three years to my best friend. He's in his last year of grad school, on his way to being a teacher.

The seat that came on the bike wasn't comfortable, so my husband found a comfortable bike seat and replaced it for me. I can't believe how much I look forward to my workout now. I think it helps that I watch an episode of CSI as I ride. I'm halfway through season 2.

Spring is coming!! It got up to 45 degrees today. I'm just hoping it doesn't get as hot as last summer.

Thank you for the goodie! Can you BELIEVE Downton is over? I can't believe it went so fast! Loved the season but already want to know what is going to happen!!

I haven't seen Murder on the Homefront but I see that I can watch it on the PBS website. Our local PBS station can be a bit wonky. I tried to watch the one about the midwives but couldn't get into it. Did you catch it?

Hope you are doing well and you are having an active week! I have been mixing things up this week and hoping for better results!

Take care!
