Who am I?


Who am I?

At this very moment, I am an unemployed, middle-aged (ouch), female fitness enthusiast who has recently discovered the power of positive thinking.  I am unemployed by choice, having left my full-time job a few weeks ago.  I’ve always known there is more out there for me to do in this world, so I have embarked on this adventure of self-discovery as a way to uncover my potential … or … unleash da beast, per se.  I’ve been doing tons of reading and studying, and I have so much more to do.  I am really digging learning new things every day and have amazed myself, quite frankly, at how far I have come in setting up this site.

I am a widow, and I have 2 dogs:  Sammie Sad Eyes (SSE)–a female–and ZekeyBoy (ZB)–a male–and the newest addition.  I have had SSE for 6+ years and just adopted ZB, who is probably about 8 months old, a few weeks ago.  I will post pictures when I figure out how!  They, or as I refer to them, “da kidz,” are a huge part of my life … unconditional love … who could ask for anything more?!  They make me laugh everyday, and laughter truly is the best medicine.

I plan to use this blog to chronicle my journey and to share positive thoughts, some fitness advice and information, and maybe even some recipes and whatnot.  I follow a low-carbohydrate lifestyle, which I realize is quite unconventional.

I welcome y’all to my blog.

Lotsa love,

  1. Hi Jen;

    I love it!!! You impress the heck out of me. Maybe I can lose those 25 lbs. I’ve gained over the past couple of years. I have never in my life had a weight problem. Why now?? Anyway, I am proud of you, and will follow along & read up on all your imspirational info. Good luck.


  2. Why now? Cuz metabolism slows as we get older! I am not sure what your level of physical activity is now, but I venture to guess it’s not the same as when you were on your feet, walking around Bananas, for several hours a day.

    I so appreciate your comment, and please bear with me because as much as I have to say, I dunno how quickly it’s all gonna come out. I am so new to this. I am studying the heck out of everything. At night, I am dreaming crazy stuff, and I get up early cuz I can’t wait to learn more. The power of positive thinking has done amazing things in my life. I’ve got this goofy new dog and the love of Sammie. I am thinking I have finally “arrived.”

    So thanks for your support!

    Love ya!
