runnerI am getting fit at 46!

I said it so it must be done! My house is filled with active people, trihubby works out 2-6 hours a day, dancer daughter dances 6 days a week 3-4 hours a day, gymnasts son works out 6 days a week 3-4 hours a day then there is me. At 45 I was fit running almost everyday and doing some small workouts at home. Then I fell and I fell hard, like flat on my face break on nose 8 stitches in and out of my mouth hard, during a run with my running group.

When I was all clear to run I did then I got scared. I was so afraid of falling, so I stopped. Then I had to arrange to move our family to Omaha, finish building our home, get the twins summer trip planned, twins graduation, hubby hit on his bicycle my a drunk driver, move, twins trip and now getting them off to college. All good excuses, right? NO, but I used them.

But like with all bad things more follow, with the added stress I added some comfort food and diet coke. It’s not like I grew out of my clothes or anything I am just not where I want to be, not fit and upset!
I have run a few times and went down to the gym in our building a few times but nothing worth writing home about.

So today it is documented I will Get Fit at 46. The twins will both be active in college, Sam is a diver on the Brandeis University Swim and Dive team and Sydney is double majoring in college with one being a BA in dance. And hubby, well later today we will know more after his doctors appointment, but right now he is still iin recovery mode but swims a little, goes for short runs and jumps on the recumbent bike. So it’s my turn.

Today is day one.

I am a home cook that does things my way. In my kitchen, I make breakfast, pack lunches, prepare snacks, and cook dinner. During the week, we eat real food that is homemade, organic, and local. On the weekends we do explore more of our local restaurants. I bake my own bread, juice fresh oranges every other day, and make my own kombucha and other weekly favorites.
