Tasty Tuesday

I love this salad dressing. You can easily make adjustments to this recipe. You should definitely try it! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Another Half Marathon

So here I go again. . .  I’m signing up for another Half Marathon. I’m putting it out here so I do not wimp out. LOL! I will be signing up for the Happy Girls Half Marathon. It’s May 26th in Bend. I’m hoping I can talk my 2 oldest daughters into signing up for the 5K too. If you want to join me I would LOVE it. You know I’m all about a party when it comes to working out. J Fitness should not be so serious. It should be about having fun and in this case enjoying the outdoors. Let’s DO IT!!

Jason's Inspirational Story

I cannot believe, once again, it has been so long since I last blogged. Life is so busy. I used to look at women in my stage of life and think they had "arrived". Hahahaha. I do not feel I have arrived. I feel insane, as if life is running away from me and I cannot catch up. When this happens, it is time to re-prioritize. That is what I am currently doing, but that is for another blog.

Today I want to highlight my husband, Jason. He is my inspiration. When I started my journey he was my cheerleader; he coached me, encouraged me, and counseled me. As we walked along my new path, Jason's clothes became baggy. Before we knew it, he was 50 lbs smaller. When I began running he gladly joined me to encourage me. Now he has run in two half marathons, Hood To Coast, and is currently training for a full marathon. He has done all of this in the face of major adversity. He is a man of great strength and character. Jason, congratulations on so many successes these past few years!!

If Jason can lose 100 lbs while going through all he has gone through; full time college student, full time job, Reserve Police Academy, Father, Husband, 2 moves, high levels of stress due to false accusations from the State of Oregon's Unemployment Dept. . . . I know you can too!!!

I hope this encourages you to begin or continue on your path to health and wellness.

Before at just over 300 lbs

After at just over 200 lbs
