Healthier Ken

My page title is also my goal--surprise, surprise! I live in a northern rural area and tend to work out at home, and it's easy to talk myself out of doing a workout. I'm hoping belonging to a group will help me stick on the straight and narrow. I'm married, have 2 children and 3 grandchildren. My wife and I are retired from the public education system and love to escape spring or fall 'mud seasons' in the north by going on cruises in the Caribbean or Mediterranean. Life is good!

Member Since: 8/17/2006

SparkPoints: 94,017

Fitness Minutes: 28,995

My Goals:
To keep my weight between 145 and 150 and to tighten up my muscle tone. I like being able to see my toes without having to look in the mirror : )

My Program:
Had a very successful bout with P90X early in 2011 but haven't been able to devote 30, 60, or 90 days consistently since. Never was a runner, but from January through April of 2012 I learned running the Jeff Galloway way with the intention of running a 10k event. This in response to a challenge from my sister to join her in the Vancouver Sun Run. Did the 10k no problem, then did 12k in a relay on Mothers' Day. Turns out I really like running so I guess that's my fitness program for the foreseeable future.

Personal Information:
My wife and I live on a beautiful property on the lake at 54.5� north latitude in central British Columbia, Canada. Nearest neighbour about half a mile away, nearest community about a 15 minutes' drive. Do I like solitude? You bet! I also like personal fitness activities, quiet times, outdoor work/play, politics, religion and community service. I enjoy live theatre. I avoid TV, the commercial entertainment industry and other mass media except CBC radio and the internet.

Other Information:
I'm a former Teacher/Librarian but you'd never know that by my current reading practices : ( It just took me almost six months to read "Shanataram". Excellent book, gripping story. It wasn't a difficult read, just had too much graphic violence for quick consumption. I think my summer read will be the full Harry Potter series (for the fourth time : )

Are You Master of Your Spark Domain?

Remember the Seinfeld Game? Remember how quickly Jerry, Kramer and Elaine all were out? Let's see if you can do better. Here is how it works.

Beginning midnight April 1, track. Track everything. Nutrition, water, exercise, the whole shebang. Don't track something, you are out. Fess up. Miss your 8 cups of water, out. Blow your calories, you are out. Fess up on this thread. Exercise without tracking, out. To make it fun, don't exercise at least one hour a week, out.

Once a week on Sundays (say), roll call for those who still are "in" and playing.

Deceptively simple, but it's not. Who's in? Starting roll call this Sunday. Ready, set, go!

(Free year of Spark membership for the winner.) Are you in?

Hey Ken,

I think you have to do the lightning bolt the right way. You'll need to strip off the windpants down to the tights. Kind of a combo Conan/Usain look.

P.S. As a side benefit, the bears will leave you alone, they steer clear of something that appears to be rabies afflicted! emoticon emoticon

Ken,

Thanks for your comment and good wishes on my "Physical Therapy and Mean Little Stumpy" blog. I am recovering very quickly.

Thanks, Bruce
