A journey of a thousand miles

Welcome. I'm Brian and this is where I post my goals and accomplishments on SparkPeople.com. I love to hike, bike and be outdoors. I am on a journey towards health and happiness. My biggest obstacle along this road is emotional eating.

I'm always making plans, setting new goals and challenging myself. I recently took up running and mountain biking. Stop by often to see what I'm up to. Leave comments or suggestions below.

No, I didn't plant the palm tree - we have them everywhere here. This year some of them have dropped all their leaves due to some bug. I've posted some photos on today's blog

The species that grow here are originally from New Zealand I believe but have 'naturalised' and can be found on the South coast of Cornwall and Devon.

emoticon for the fantastic Goodie! Funnily enough, I bought myself a new set of earphones this week, so that I can at least listen to the radio on my phone when I'm travelling on the bus!
