April 2020

2009: (Age 41) Became ill and quit smoking cigarettes after smoking 23 years. Joined Sparkpeople.

2010-2016: Became a runner. Then a distance runner. Tried many fitness and nutrition programs and lost 23 pounds.

2016-2020: Became a lifter. Ran a little less. Changed my body composition (added muscle) while maintaining weight.

2020: (Age 52) Life has suddenly changed due to a global pandemic. Living isolated with husband and daughter.
Lifting less and back to running more. Still maintaining weight.

Working on accepting my new normal as world events unfold. I’m not sure what my future holds so I will live each day as it comes and do the best I can.

    Hi Lori,
    The moon didn't come out as early as we had hoped. We were down at the park at 7 pm, but the moon didn't appear until about 8 pm. And it was cloudy too, so that made it even harder. But, it was interesting and nice to do qigong at night in the little moonlight that was available for us. Later as we were leaving the moon rose above the clouds, and it was nice.

    I am thankful that our children are now adults, and we only have to be concerned about the grands, which is a little difficult in these times. However, I believe they will have the proper education at the Catholic school with the small classes. I'm excited for them!

    The only place success comes before work is in the dictionary vince Lombardi

    This is a favorite of mine when I stressed out
