My blog is 2 years old today! I started this blog as motivation to help me get back into exercise and healthy eating after a lapse in both. I am very happy to report that I have been successful in terms of exercise, healthy eating, and blogging.
On the exercise front I manage to go to the gym a few days a week and workout with weights. I am on a good program and have gotten stronger. I also practice yoga 2-3 days a week and it feels great! Last spring I got back into running and ran some 5k and 10k races and even ran a half marathon. My times certainly weren’t what they once were, but I DID IT!
My eating has improved greatly. I even lost some of the excess weight I had gained. I would be very happy to lose 5 pounds more, but as I have heard more than once, “it’s only a number”. More importantly I managed to bring my cholesterol numbers back in line. My next steps in my quest to eat healthy are to buy (and use) a juicer and start buying organic vegetables (more on that later).
