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.

HI Brian ! LOVE the type C personality ! I USED to be an A++++++++, now I am just an A ++ !!! Others who came to my place used to say "How do you get the dust picked up before it even falls?" Yeah it was LIKE THAT ! "WAS" for now to me it looks HORRIBLY DIRTY , but others are either being TO KIND or perhaps there's some truth??? in what they say "It looks very nice." I think it looks HORRIBLY MESSY !! Yet when I clean it up my standards it takes about 10 minutes. A dear friend has moved into my building,,, she's a SLOB TO THE MAX !! Though she has said someone called and told her therapist someone had called,, said I think she said either messy or a hoarder,,,, while true,, not sure which was said. So coming here,, I AM SO PROUD OF HER cause she threw away MOST of that !!! As long as she doesn't buy more,, she'll be GOLDEN !!! Now to see if she's interested in walking more,,, she's my walking partner,,, I'm though up to more than she is. I go up and down , back and forth in the hallway (passing 8 apts on each side)on my knee walker,,,,, for 30 mins or less,,,, (average) while having my Kindle Fire HDX (can do everything my puter does) reading books !! It's soo MUCH BETTER !! As Chandra (Leslielenore) can attest to ,,, reading while exercising goes MUCH quicker !

Now you've done it! Herc wants to change careers and search for contraband tennis balls too!

Which is funny, because when we take a walk at night we cut across the high school and guess what he finds on (and off) the courts? I guess we could add to his resume: experience seeking out hidden tennis balls.

Thanks for visiting! The spring air felt great! ACHOO! (excuse me) The temperature reached the 50's! It was fantastic! This week we will reach the 60's. I can feel more motivation creeping back into my body.
