Good Lordy...I'm 40!!

Just dropping by the old blog to let anyone who still follows it that I am still alive and tomorrow is my 40th birthday!

How the heck did that happen??

In any case, in the last few months my youngest son, Logan, moved out of the house, freeing up his, of course, I converted it into a library. What else would I do with it?? And I'm loving it!!

Also, I basically hit my weight goal in March and I drifted sort of aimlessly around wondering what I should do with myself now that I am no longer fat. Finally, after much soul searching I believe I found a sport that I truly, truly love and appear to have some talent at....bodybuilding. So, I crafted a whole new set of workouts and revamped my diet specifically so I can build more muscle.

Here are a couple stupid self-portraits I did. Hopefully in another couple months I'll be able to retake the pictures and see some improvements.

Be kind with your comments....remember..I AM an old lady! And I've only been seriously lifting for a few months. :D

It is a wonderful sport. I'm sore most of the time...but I really, really enjoy it. It is weird, however to look at the scale and be disappointed if the number goes DOWN. I guess that will take some getting used to. :D

Still reading (of course...that's like saying I'm still breathing)...I've gotten through about 100 novels so far this year. I've really loved "Drood" by Dan Simmons and "Into the Beautiful North" by Alberto Urrea. I highly recommend both!

I guess that's all for this update. Peace!!

Kookie out.
