Time to get Re-Sparked

I have been Sparking now for just over 4 years now. I was sick and tired of being so overweight I couldn't enjoy life.

About two years ago, I had some life events happen which caused me to leave this site. First was a horrible bike crash that kept me off my bike for about 16 weeks. Then the next 5 months were spent finishing up my dissertation and getting my Ph.D. After that, I have to admit, I got pretty lazy about all my exercise and nutrition.

I have been Sparking now for just over 4 years now. I was sick and tired of being so overweight I couldn't enjoy life.

About two years ago, I had some life events happen which caused me to leave this site. First was a horrible bike crash that kept me off my bike for about 16 weeks. Then the next 5 months were spent finishing up my dissertation and getting my Ph.D. After that, I have to admit, I got pretty lazy about all my exercise and nutrition.

The predictable results were that I gained back most (not all) of what I had worked so hard to get off. That's the bad news. But I am not going to 'beat myself up' for it - I am just going to get back on the horse, so to speak, and re-focus on all those great habits that got me fit in the first place.

I started my refocus efforts with a '60 for 60' bike ride with some friends - 60 miles for my 60th birthday. It was a great way to spend my 60th birthday - and a great way for me to get 're-sparked'

This is 'I have taken my life back' part 4 - I'm excited, but I'm also taking it one day at a time - I know how to do this!

Onward!

SparkPoints: 36,802

Fitness Minutes: 55,779

My Goals:
- Lose 40 more pounds on the way to losing more than 100 pounds in order to live a much more healthy lifestyle again.



My Program:
It's back to the bike - of course! I hope to supplement my riding with some swimming, and some weight training. But it was my passion for cycling that helped me shed 80 pounds, and I am going to return to what works.

I have learned that becoming healthy (and losing weight) is a holistic process of nutrition, hydration, exercise and sleep.

Personal Information:
I live in Seoul, South Korea and work with a IT contractor for the US military. I'm not very comfortable with revealing to much personal information, so if you want to chat, you'll have to send me a spark-mail.

Other Information:
I believe that learning to love yourself, love others, develop meaningful relationships, and laughing alot are the most important things in life.

I just came back a week ago after a one-year absence, so I know how hard it is to get that train moving again. But it feels so good to be back in control! Good for you - glad you are back at it!

Back out cycling again sounds good. We have been a little chilly here as well so I am happy to see that you are still hitting the trails and bike paths now in winter wear.

Keep going, keep going! Thak you for the Columbus Day update. Have missed your blogs.
