Hello and thanks for stopping by! So, you’d like to know a little more about me, huh? Alrighty then, let’s see ….. I’m married to the love of my life, thanks to ‘second chances’, mother to three teenage boys and two incorrigible labs. Having been raised in the South; I love fashion, decorating, cooking and men in uniform (well, namely… my man. I mean, seriously, who can resist?)
I began my fitness journey at the “ripe old age” of 40 and have never looked back. I love encouraging and motivating others to take those first steps to a healthier lifestyle. Running (when I’m not injured), cycling, hiking and kayaking with the hubby are just a few of my hobbies. I’m a lover of life, people and have a serious case of “Wanderlust”! My dream is to win the lottery and travel the world with my soul mate ….hey; one can dream, can’t they?!?
Soooo, why start blogging now? you may be wondering. Well, I’ll tell you….. I’m embarking on a new chapter in life and it’s a tough one! It has caught me completely off-guard and kicking my tail, to be quite honest. I’m blissfully married and on the cusp of being “empty nesters” and BAM! …. the BIG 50 is lurking just around the corner. She’s taunting me with hot flashes, moodiness, an even greater amount of sarcasm than I’ve ever displayed, unwanted belly fat and many other hormonal changes that I haven’t even begun to understand!
My hope and desire is to embrace this new phase of life and all of its beauty, blessings, frustrations and pitfalls with as much patience and humor as possible ….and I’d love for you to follow along with me! Finding “fabulous” at Fifty is my new life mantra!
