About Diane

Ciao! My name is Diane. I'm a wife, a mom, a working professional, and a Weight Watcher from New Jersey. I started blogging in 2011, at 45 years old, when I was training for my first Half Marathon at Rutgers on April 22, 2012. Since then, I've lost 80 pounds, completed my Half Marathon goal and gone on to train for and run my very first Full Marathon. On Jan 13, 2013, I ran the Disney Marathon in Orlando, Fl! What an incredible day. As the saying goes -- "The person who starts the race is not the same person who finishes the race." I am forever changed! So now we move on to the next phase of this journey! Come along. We're in this together!! Ciao for now!

#JoyRising – back to the burbs!

Today we begin our move out of Baltimore City.

Our new home in Ellicott City, MD will finish sometime in February.  Until then we have decided to move out of our city apartment and into another temporary apartment closer to my work in Owings Mills.   We’re all packed.  We’re travelling light, but it’s still ALOT of work to move — no matter how simple you try to keep your life while in transition.

By tomorrow night, New Year’s Eve – we will be settled back in the burbs for our last (hopefully) temporary nest.  After this — the next stop —- H.O.M.E.  <3

Peter is driving Erin back to campus as I type.    We thoroughly enjoyed the long Thanksgiving weekend with her home. Next home will be Caitlin.  In just 12 days, she will finish her fall semester at Rollins and board a plane home from Florida for winter break!  We’ll have Cait all to ourselves for a week before Erin s back.
