It's been just over a year since I won the over 40 category shortly after my 40th birthday. Now I'm 41 and over the past few months I've really been pigging out. I hope to get down to around 150 by the end of the contest.

For workouts, I'm going to go through TT 2.0 manual. I started with the beginner level today. I thought it would be too easy, but I've taken a couple of weeks off working out and it actually kicked my butt. I couldn't even finish it; felt woozy. I huffed and puffed lying on the bed sweating for a few minutes; felt pretty rotten, really. I guess my cardio fitness could use some work. I'm all better now. I was going to just do a week or so before moving to intermediate, but after today I think I'll spend the whole month with beginner.

I took my pictures yesterday, but they aren't much to look at so I'll wait until later to upload them.

I'm following a strict diet plan, as usual. So far, so good.

Good luck everyone!!
