and the new word is….

and the new word is….



Let’s blow the dust off the dictionary, and check this one out…

Athletic:  physically strong, fit, and active

Ding..Ding..Ding…we’ve got a winner!!!

So my intention is to create the same image in my mind around what it looks like, feels like, taste like to B.E. athletic.  Everything I do, needs to be something an athletic person would do.  Everything I eat,  needs to be something an athletic person would eat.  Everything I say to myself, needs to be the encouragement an athletic person would say to themselves.

I’m B.e.c.o.m.i.n.g… Athletic person!  And this is going to take dedication, committment, passion!  Furthermore, it opens the door for me to explore all types of activities on the journey.  Spinning, swimming, hiking, running, biking, paddle boarding (yea – my friend Joan said it’s happening!!), yoga,,,,,you name it!   My identity is expanding.

Look out world, here I come!

Ciao for now….Diane



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!
