2014 Fall 5% Challenge...Ready For Launch 9/20!

Welcome, I'm Kirk. No, that is not me in the photo but I thought wouldn't it be great to someday be as svelte and gorgeous in a tux. That's why I came to this site with a picture of a chimp in a suit and a dream. This is America and almost anything is possible if one sets their mind to it. I believe this law is universal on the planet but in this country there seem to be fewer insurmountable obstacles. Where there's a will there's a way. My goal on paper seems reasonable enough, almost ...
Welcome, I'm Kirk. No, that is not me in the photo but I thought wouldn't it be great to someday be as svelte and gorgeous in a tux. That's why I came to this site with a picture of a chimp in a suit and a dream. This is America and almost anything is possible if one sets their mind to it. I believe this law is universal on the planet but in this country there seem to be fewer insurmountable obstacles. Where there's a will there's a way. My goal on paper seems reasonable enough, almost trivial, to go from my current weight of about 230 down to healthier one of 170 or less. My deadline (pun intended) is July 31, 2009 UPDATE: Dec 30, 2010 is my new time to goal. I don't know if you've recently wandered through a grocery store (don't get me started on buffets) or not but there's a war being waged against our waistlines and if we as consumers don't get hip to the tricksters on what they're trying to sell us we americans are only going to get larger and further strain an already sinking health care system. It seems like I've always been active but somewhere in my early thirties things got away from me and I got up to 260 pounds. I resolved to getting fitter in January 2007 and while progress has been made and I feel a lot better, stronger and more "virile" than ever, or at least remember, I know I need to bring this train to the station. I'm learning that support, giving and receiving, can be a huge factor in achieving any goal and that's another reason I'm here. To offer encouragement, advice, links and the occassional laugh (ok, I thought it was funny) as we make our year and our lives lighter, happier places to be. What will the new me be like? Besides being slightly ripped and wearing smaller I have no idea, but I'm looking forward to the adventure. Change is not easy, especially when you're used to things being a certain way long enough, good or bad. That's enough rambling for now but I wish all of us new found and long kept successes in 2009 and beyond!
UPDATE: Can someone tell this guy to update his intro. Hello...it's like 2014 already.
UPDATE: Looks like I've been hacked. Someone has a little too much free time on their hands but whatever. Still fighting the good fight to stay under 200. Hoping to finish 2014 at 180 or less. Time to make it happen.

My Program:
I will exercise at least 5 days per week (strength and cardio), watch what I eat, stay hydrated and get great rest and repeat for the rest of my life. I will also meditate on what I want to create; I think the mental factor is greatly underestimated in it's ability to help us achieve the lives we envision for ourselves and those connected to us.

Other Information:
I love music!

“And will you succeed? Yes indeed, yes indeed! Ninety-eight and three-quarters percent guaranteed!”
― Dr. Seuss

I feel that I'm having a petty good start to the new year and just wanted to spread some of my enthusiasm (who knows how long it will last).

YOU CAN DO IT!

Thought I'd check in and say hello.. Thought that there might be a recent blog entry but it looks like you may be out there NOT feeling like you need to Spark as often. Hope you are doing GREAT.. ! Good on YOU...

I'm kind of down with a bug of some sort right now but I'm planning on getting out-of-doors a bit later (when it warms up a bit *it's now only 19 degrees here which is Cold for where I live in Oregon).

I've just recently dropped all of my Spark teams except for one because I'm going back to Graduate School in the Fall and feel that it's important to establish a routine of sorts that will get me through and is doable (not something that is so over-whelming that I'll have to drop out of it later).

emoticon We are almost there! HAPPY NEW YEAR...

Your Spark Friend,

Jane

“What is Christmas? It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future. It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace.”

-- Agnes M. Pharo, American artist and writer (1904-1985)

Learn from yesterday... live for today... hope for tomorrow... The important thing is not to stop Learning... and to not give up... Keep Going... Go... Go

*~ * ~ *~ * emoticon *~*~*~ *~ emoticon *~*~*~ emoticon

Hope is important because it can make the present moment less difficult to bear... If we believe that tomorrow will be better... we can bear a hardship today...

*~ * ~ *~ * emoticon *~*~*~ *~ emoticon *~*~*~ emoticon

You may not always have a comfortable life and you will not always be able to solve all of the world's problems at once but don't ever underestimate the importance you can have because history has shown us that courage can be contagious and hope can take on a life of its own.

Let your hopes... not your hurts... shape your future...

Why not focus on what you’re doing right instead? If you take a step back, learn from it and take two steps forward...

Persistence is key. Accept the fact that you might not make it ~on the first try. In a recent study, only 40% of people who successfully followed New Year's resolutions did it on the first try; 17% of resolution achievers took six or more tries before they got it right – but they did get it right...

DO leave room for failure. DON’T expect perfection....
