The Journey Begins

cropped-allyson2.jpgThanks for joining me! My name is Ally and I am originally from the Midwest. I live in New York City and am 47 years old – the mother of two grown children and two grandchildren. I have a very busy life consisting of a long commute, working and spending time with my partner and his young children.

The purpose of this blog is twofold:  to hold myself personally accountable for reaching my fitness goals; and to encourage others (especially those in middle age like me) to reach their own goals. To prove that age is only a number and goals can be accomplished through discipline and consistency. To encourage others (and myself) to keep going through the various challenges and setbacks of everyday life.

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton
