Hi. I'm Susan. I live in Southern California. I'm married, no kids, two, dogs, one cat. I am 63. My ultimate goal is to lose 200 pounds (yikes!), I met my stage one goal on April 8, 2018 of losing 50 pounds and now it's on to stage 2. I'm working on the second 50 pounds. It's been slow going and I've had set backs but I refuse to quit.

I am an EL (extra leader) on the Spirited Underdog team in the 5% challenge. It's a good way to get to know others and support one another, with some accountability, but no pressure. Come join us!

2020 has been quite a year and forced lots of changes on us all. Some just plain irritating, some good. It has forced me to finally get my home gym set up since my gym has been closed for over 6 months. I'm starting to get back into the habit of regular workouts.

    emoticon Happpy Wednesday! Im afraid we will be eating turkey for a long time this year as hubs wants to get a big ole bird instead of just getting a breast. Oyyyy! Marinated chicken and Kalbi ribs last night, I have grill duties this afternoon, when it warms up. Going to try making 3 different Korean vegetable dishes, with Napa Cabbage, cucumbers, carrots & daikon. Ever since I found that flaked cut beef at Albertsons, I’ve been so happy, now I can make it. Turning today into my active rest day with plans to either hike or go for a long walk in a new area of my hood. Thanks for your wisdom!
