There comes a time when you take a good hard look at yourself and decide its time for a change.
I did that last year and have been working ever since to be healthy, lose weight, and get fit. It hasn’t been an easy journey, and the journey isn’t over yet. But the benefits have been well worth the efforts undertaken.
I’ll be exploring and sharing what it takes to get fit when you’ve reached 50 years of age and above. No, we ain’t dead! No, we ain’t old! We’re on a journey to be feisty, fab and fit!
I’ll be talking clean eating, working out, dealing with health issues that affect women our age (think pre-menopause and achey joints for example), and how to stay motivated when the going gets rough and tough.
You can also follow along as I work my fitness and health plan. I’ll share what I’m going through, and you can chime in with your thoughts.
Note that this was originally written back in 2010. Since the death of my husband in June 2011 I haven’t been doing any of this fitness stuff. Didn’t even quit smoking, though that’s what killed my hubby. Sooooo….I’ve lost quite a bit of weight though I need to do some firming up, and I’m also in the process of getting off of nicotine.

It all comes down to what you REALLY want for yourself — no excuses, no whining, no B.S., no fear, no doubt, no laziness, no giving up.
