Weight and Running Giving it my all

I’ve been on a weight loss journey for a few years now, protein shakes, low carb, low fat, exercise, limited booze intake…. you name it and I am pretty sure that I might have tried it.  One thing I used to do in my younger years was run or maybe jog is a better description. I was never a fast competitive runner but I so loved that runners high you get.  Over the course of time with kids, work, injuries, weight gain and such running became a lost dream of mine.  Not that I think I can be a runner in the true sense of the word but I can get get out there and jog, speed walk and try to run.  To that end I have signed up for some road races and completed two 5 k’s so far. My motivation is high but I struggle to keep it high.  Road races to me are extremely motivating, whether I am walking or running, being in that crowd and feeling the excitement is awesome and supporting charities or civic events with the entry fee is an added bonus.  I share this because I believe you can do anything you really want to do, yes it requires something called “work” and some dedication but if you can imagine it…. of course like all goals it has to be realistic, but if you want it bad enough and make it real, it will happen.   I lead a busy lifestyle, real estate can be very demanding but without my health none of it really matters.   I would love to find a beginners running group/club locally and I am trying to decide which 5 k to do next.  If you’re interested in joining me let me know!

Twinkies and Hampstead NH Real Estate –

Twinkies and Hampstead NH Real Estate

So, I went on a Twinkie hunt. I thought for sure I would find some Hostess Twinkies locally in the Hannaford grocery store in Hampstead. Boy was I shocked to find empty shelves and that reminded me of real estate.  I had tried booking a few appointments to show some homes last week only to find the houses no longer available.  Noticing that prices are increasing slightly and inventory decreasing really hammered home the point that the market is changing.  And that, along with Twinkies being impossible to find inspired my little Twinkie video.
