A few days ago, I talked about how things are for me now that I’m 55. My body has gone through so many changes over the last several years. I’ve talked about the weight gain, hot flashes and night sweats. Another thing that I haven’t talked about is my change in diet. For many years,… Continue reading My current diet
Last week our family went on a vacation to Virginia Beach and this week I’ve spent much of the time thinking about how much I want to go back on vacation. We had a wonderful time. It was great to get away with our adult children and their spouses. We relaxed on the beach and… Continue reading This is 55.
Good morning! I hope you’ve been enjoying your long weekend. Mine has been great! I watched some college football and ate too many unhealthy snacks on Saturday, had brunch yesterday with the family and ate way too much food, enjoyed the nice weather in the backyard with my husband, drank some cocktails and learned how… Continue reading Current workout program

Please excuse my long absence, but let me assure you that everything is fine. Well, sort of.

It’s crazy that a month has gone by since I last wrote a blog post! At that time, I was dealing with some neck issues; I was pretty sure that I had a herniated disc, but I had to wait to have an MRI to know for sure. I had my MRI and sure enough,… Continue reading Neck update
Last Thursday morning, I woke up with a painful, stiff neck. Man, I must have slept wrong, was what I thought. I decided to go ahead and do my workout, which was a cardio workout from 4 Weeks of The Prep, and included some burpees and ab exercises. I figured the movement would work out… Continue reading Injuries suck.
It’s a bit late, but I thought I’d write an update on how the first week of the 30-Day Challenge went. Just to recap, I have a list of tasks that I want to complete every day for 30 days. If I miss a task, I have to start over at Day 1. Here are… Continue reading Week 1 results of 30-Day Challenge
