    So yesterday, in the eyes of USA Weightlifting and also. USA Powelifting, I turned 60. (for competition purposes, on Jan 1 you are the age you will become in that calendar year. ) I am now officially in the “oh you’re still breathing? Great! Come to the National Champs” division. Kind of excited!

    My old trainers comment was “only woman ever to be excited about turning 60!”

    Got out for a lovely snowshoe after work. The weather was perfect and we were able to keep a pretty good pace! Felt so good to get outside and MOVE!

    Good morning, Cool Kids!

    Welcome newbies! No special process to "join." Just jump right in and start posting about your commitment to getting healthier.

    Max Hammer Strength today and a short (4 mile) run on the treadmill. It's pretty icky out there today so the treadmill to the rescue.

    I usually look forward to this weekend's Kettle Krush 5K. It's the first race I ever did so it holds serious sentimental value to me. However, the weather is looking rather unpleasant for the race this year. I'm pretty sure I won't be seeing any PRs this time!

    Have a great day, and stay warm!

    Are you kidding?! I was thrilled to move up an age bracket in running, lol! I actually get to bring home extra bling occasionally, now that I'm "old." B)

    Got out for another snowshoe yesterday. Weather was about 11 degrees colder than the day before, but it was still okay once you were moving. Had to break trail, as we got a nice bunch of snow the night before. This morning temps are -30C and dropping with the wind chill, so no snowshoeing tonight. :(

    This is day 3 of Project Sugar Expulsion. I bet I will be HANGRY by day's end, but I am sticking to the plan!!

    My workouts are likely going to look like this:

    M - cardio
    Tu - weights
    W - rest
    Th - yoga
    F - weights
    Sa - cardio
    Su - weights

    I have a fancy ball at the end of January, so am really working hard to dump 5- lbs by then. And I am then going to be in good shape to keep cutting through Feb/Mar/Apr...to hit "goal weight".

    My "goal weight" these days is still about 10 lbs UP from where I was 7- or 8- years ago....now that I am post-menopause, I don't think I can get that low and I am f-ing my mind by trying.

    With the extra weight-lifting day, though, I hope my shoulder measurement comes up and my hip measurement goes down.

    BOOM!

    ...so a billion people before you have been perfect or even under weight by eating normal food in the correct amounts, and you think food needs to be reinvented? Ok...
