01/15/2014 - Found out that I'm gonna be a granddad again(no. 12).

08/07/2013 - Going to see grandson Tad and his wife Kimmy tomorrow for dessert, and to find out what gender our great grandchild is... Call me GREAT grandpa now....

07/18/2013 - Looking forward to flying up to Seattle WA. to see our sone Pete & his girlfriend Jeanette...

09/23/2011 - Well, it's official... We (my wife and I) are new empty nesters now... Moved my 26yr old son Pete up to Seattle 3 wks ago and now we're in this big ol' house by ourselves... So far so good, spending some time consoling my wife cuz she misses her baby, but that's what I'm here for... Got a job at the end of August, working for S. Bernardino County. Outdoors, very physical, and I enjoy it! It's cut into my workouts BIG time which is a challenge, but it'll work out... Have gained about 8lbs, but am confident I'll be back on track to 168 soon...

01/27/12 - Still up around 181 lbs and still struggling to find quality workout time... Only playing racquetball about once every other week, and that just kills me! Thought that having Fridays off would help, but it seems that that's the only time I have for doctor's appointments, auto maintenance, doing the wash, grocery shopping, etc.... Something will break though, and I WILL be back on track!

11/09/12 - Now I've gained another 9 lbs!! Still trying to find time to do workouts... Again, it's sporadic at best. The hours I put in at work don't help, but something's gonna happen! At least I've started getting on track with the food consumption thing...

My Goals:
Had two types of cancers at the end of 2006 into 2007... Went through surgery for one, and chemo/radiation for the other... Was pronounced in remission July 2007, and still cancer free... Figured that eating right and being healthy are a couple of ways to perhaps avoid getting sick again, found Spark People... My original goal was to get to 175lbs by Aug. 31, 2010 got to 180, am currently at 185. I basically track my food intake,and watch/change/adjust my eating habits which seems to be a large part of the process. I aim for a minimum 4 days a week of cardio, with 2 days of strength training.

My Program:
Using Sparkpeople Nutrition and Fitness pages to help keep me on track... Constantly reading food labels!! Search the internet to find tables on nutritional values of different foods to help me make smarter choices. I try to walk/run a minimum 4 days a week, and play racquetball at least 2 days (competitive). Weight/strength training.

Oh the sun came out today...just sad because my 90 year old mother-in-law passed away yesterday. We took care of her in our home for the past year. She had a wonderful life and she was a wonderful person.

Thanks for commenting on my Spark Feed. I don't know where I came in the mountain race but it will have been well down the 'field'. However, I ran well for me and, despite all the effort, river crossings and mud involved, I enjoyed it!

Hey, thanks for the message! I actually started about a month ago, but my shins were having problems and my leg muscles are too tight, I figured it'd be best to wait until spring when I can get off the treadmill and go my own pace. I still do little jogs every now and then, but I have to start the program over later. How are you doing with it?
