Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
It is time to scale back. To be fitter at 55, which is approaching way too quickly. This is not a small task. My body has seen more neglect and abuse than the youthful Pip amid the alleys of London.
But I, too, have great expectations: Lose the weight; strengthen the muscles; pack up to the Chisos South Rim and camp under the stars. No small task for someone with Ankylosing Spondylitis and a surgically repaired neck. It's time, once again, to RESET!
Dropping 15-18 pounds of weight brought on by post-surgical sedentary living, fantastic food trucks and the Austin craft beer scene. Will be pumping up the exercise and charting the nutrition track that was so successful for me the last time I was here among the Sparkers on a regular basis (I dropped nearly 20 pounds!).
Here we go ...
** Reform nutrition
** Embrace exercise
** Surrender bad habits
** Enliven activities
** Transcend limitations
Living the empty nest life in Austin, Texas, after nearly 14 years in the hustle and bustle of the Washington, D.C., area (Northern Virginia, to be exact).
Hiking and outdoors are passions, as are tennis and baseball. Still married to my college sweetheart and both my daughter and son are graduates of The College of William & Mary, and are gainfully employed. Woot!
"That was a memorable day to me, for it made great changes in me. But, it is the same with any life. Imagine one selected day struck out of it, and think how different its course would have been. Pause you who read this, and think for a moment of the long chain of iron or gold, of thorns or flowers, that would never have bound you, but for the formation of the first link on one memorable day."
-- Charles Dickens, Great Expectations

Thanks for dropping by my page and reading my most recent blog. I appreciate the vote of confidence and all the support I have received, yours just being one of many.
I have done really well up until recently...just striving to get my Mo-Jo back. If it's to be, it's up to me. I enjoyed checking out your page and am pleased to meet another fellow East Texan. I am a transplant but here to stay.
Upwards and onwards!! Good luck in your journey.

Mook-Reset, thanks so much for taking time to stop by. I really appreciate your visit. Your avatar name 'reset' has preyed or rather stayed on my mind for days now. I like it. The concept & image I see (your intent may be completely different) is: program files are corrupt, system crash, deep blue screen, press reset!

Hi Mook - I added you as a friend b/c I like what you wrote - plus I enjoy your sense of humor! It was hard when my son left for college (only child) so I can kind of relate - but the earthquake and now hurricane - holy cow. You guys hang tough over there! Els
