In June of 2017 I was diagnosed with PMR. I am on prednisone 6 mg, which accounts for the weight gain. I used to weigh between 145 and 150 pounds. I am 5”5.

I plan to be off prednisone completely by July. I hope to achieve my weight goal by June.

I have a gym upstairs in my building which has treadmills, bikes, weight machines but no free weights or dead lifts. I also do yoga but it is a challenge to find the peace and quiet. Looks like I will have to be diligent in practicing at 5:00 am!

I also teach yoga but only as a part time business. I got my business name registered last fall and also purchased insurance. I take continuing education courses to increase the variety of yoga I can teach. I am also taking online training in something to create my own niche in yoga. Sorry, I can't tell you what that is yet until I am certified.

I am also a pet-sitter and dog walker. This is also a part-time gig. I don't have my business name registered nor insurance as yoga is the business I want to grow and need all of my resources to go into that.
