Still workin' here...

Carrying too much on a 5'6" frame = being overweight. My goal is to get healthier (and fitter) through physical exercise and wiser food choices. They say Rome wasn't built in a day, which gives me some hope, lol. Positive change is good and I'm here to make it work.

My Goals:
* Weight loss of 1 pound per week (wouldn't quibble if it was more).
* Half-marathon April 6!
* Injuries? Do not need them. Stay in preventive mode.



My Program:
* Running ~3X's per week.
* Walk in the woods as much as possible.
* Cross-train one day per week or strength workout.
* Record what I eat. Maintain between calorie ranges.

Personal Information:
* I'm 52 years old, an RN from Ohio, married to a lovely man who motivates me to get out there and exercise.
* Work part time and volunteer at the local library (it feeds my habit) and park system (that way I know which trails to run on).

Other Information:
Love to plant and work in the garden, trying to learn how to quilt (it might be an impossible task). I'm a reader of almost anything, but love westerns, sci-fi and mysteries. Most recent finds: W is for Wasted by Sue Grafton and Half-Marathon by Jeff Galloway.

Thanks for the seedling in honor of Earth Day. It is an every day celebration for me. I am on the TerraCycle committee at the school, and we recycle all sorts of stuff the kids bring in. We have drives, we collect for charities. We are front and center with saving our earth. At home I have more recycling on collection day than garbage. WOOHOO!! It is worth the effort.

I would have sent you another goodie, but then we would have a goodie war going on!

Good Day?!

Tomorrow's race is the "Eagle by the Bay" 5k and 5 mile. It is very small, but only 5.5 miles from my house. Using a couple short races to test my stomach under stress. I did sign up for the Michigan Half Marathon Series. This will be 7 races in all different locations and styles. Those are what I'm trying to prep for. emoticon

Thanks for cheering me on!

WOW, great next Half for you - The Air Force Half! Good for you! Keep up the training. I really had to dig my way out of a real slump after my Half. Now that the weather is better, I am enjoying my runs.

Have a great Easter Sunday.
