Riding my bike to Alki Beach in West Seattle is pretty much my favorite thing nowadays.

I've got a few more pounds to lose, but I'm more or less maintaining! I started running in 2019 and it changed my life. I now run half-marathons. Tracking food keeps me in line and has helped me fight against my tendency towards weight fluctuations. I've lost over 100 lbs from my heaviest. I have PCOS, hypothyroidism, and multiple neurological disorders. I'm 42 years old and a spinster cat lady. I ran my first solo half-marathon in April 2020 and I hope to keep improving my speed and endurance.

Member Since: 3/12/2008

Fitness Minutes: 113,896

My Goals:

*Reduce joint pain and increase flexibility.

*Learn to roller-skate.

*Get rid of insulin resistance.

*Run a mile without stopping. (DONE 11/2/2011)

I'll add more as I think of them.


My Program:
*Measure everything I eat. No eyeballing!
*Track everything I eat. Stay honest!
*1300-1700 calories a day
------------------
I don't work out every day. I prefer longer workout sessions 3-5 days a week.

I aim for 180 minutes of cardio a week and I do strength training 2-3 times a week.

I get bored easily, so I do

*Turbo Jam and Turbo Fire

*30 Day Shred

*Cardio machines at the gym (the elliptical is my favorite)

*Swimming

*Walking

*Riding my bike!

I drink at least 10 cups of water a day. I eat more vegetables and fewer processed food items. I limit alcohol to rare social events.

I have early-onset osteoarthritis, but weight loss and exercise should help that.

Currently living in Seattle, WA with my cat.

HW: 250ish lbs (2002-2003)
SP start weight: 223
