  1. Im still alive. Just. lol Week 2 was a complete shambles. Lots of drama with my youngest son at the beginning of the week that resulted in him having to move back into my house with nothing but a bag of clothes, lots of chasing around sourcing furniture and reorganising the house and finances... no workouts and LOTS of stress eating.

Feeling very much

  5. Years ago i used to hike a lot, when my kids were small etc....more recently though between lack of fitness and lack of making the time id be lucky to go a few times a year. That has to change.
  6. Ive been away WAY too long. I remember you being in an unhappy relationship, but apparently a LOT has happened since then. Sounds like you've been to hell and back, but you've got a better understanding of yourself and what you want from life. Looking forward to seeing how things unfold for you.

Im HappyCat, a long time divorced 40 something empty nester still trying to figure life out and get a handle on this health and fitness thing so i can have a lot more energy to enjoy all the things i used to enjoy when I was younger and fitter and not feel like im barely surviving.
