About Me

TX, United States
I am a 39 yr. old stay at home mom to 3 girls ages 10, 9 and 7. My goal is to be fit by 40! I want to lead a healthier lifestyle. I was banded on 4/5/2011. I tend to be a bit on the sarcastic and cynical side. I love to read, hate to excersise (but am learning to tolerate it!), love to shop and want to smack anyone who is a size 2 (not really!). I am learning to work with my band and my new self one day at a time!

It's Official.............I Am A Middle-Ager.

I arrived back home last night to 95 degree temps.  Welcome back to Texas!  Yesterday morning was 48 degrees, gray and drizzly in Portland when we left.  I guess it is back to reality.

Today I am officially a middle-aged woman.  The big 4-0.  Ouch.   The good thing is I have made it to my goal.  I wanted to be fit by 40.  I can check that off my list.

I will post tons of pictures and an update tomorrow.  Right now I am struggling with jet lag and sweating like a pig from the temp. change.

 Oh, and I am on my 6th cup of strong Seattle coffee that I smuggled back in my carry-on.  I am going to have to do a caffeine detox as sipping warm coffee is not a pleasant experience here in the heat.

It is good to be home.


  1. Happy Birthday, you lovely 40-year-old you!

    Honestly? My 40s have been AWESOME - I'm old enough not to care what others think, and young enough to make them think something!
