So much to do!!

Did you know that there so many opportunities out there? So many things to do with people, things to see, ways to get your body moving!! When I was 274 pounds I had no idea! The only things that were important to me then, were my Family, home, TV, couch, books (where I could read about other people living their lives), and FOOD!! That's all I needed to live!?!?!

Now that this body can move, I have experienced so much more in my life.

Everyday I get a flurry of emails about a new 5k, half marathon or mini tri event that's coming to my area. I also get biking events, zoo events, and community events. I could never be alone with nothing to do around here. There's always something to do, something to get me out of this house and something that will keep me active.

Really thinking about doing an event like this. How fun would that be?

Or what about this one?

It's a Pineapple Classic 5k Obstacle Course Race!!

So many fun things to do!!

Are you still stuck in your house? Are you ready to do some living? Sign up for an event today...they have them for all activity levels!! Whatever you do.....just get out of the house and get your body moving!!

Stay focused!!!


  1. I completely agree with you! I've gone from 258 to 165 and cannot believe how much there is to LIFE!! It's like I'm kid in a candy shop with big eyes wanting to try EVERYTHING I see!!

    It's amazing!!

  2. Such an inspirational post, Joy! I know that when a person is busy and not focused on overeating it's much easier to lose weight and really enjoy life. Although I'm not much of an outdoor person (I don't like to perspire), I love to walk around airports, shop or clean house.
    You look great in the pictures, by the way.

    Oh, and I've gained back at least 6 pounds by eating rich food, traveling with my husband. Bad!! Got to get back on track and...Stay focused!!
