Climbing the 5-0 ladder and trying not to succumb to gravity. Cycling is my passion. Taking up running, too, so I can indulge in my other passions--cooking and eating.

Perseverance is not a long race; it is many short races, one after another. (Walter Elliot)

Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat. (Theodore Roosevelt)

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary. (Steve Jobs)

    Ah, Cheese! I still mourn the day I learned that cheese was not my friend. At one point I was a member of a mail-order cheese club, and many lunches in the 70s consisted of cubes of cheese. But now, I have to consider not only the saturated fat, but the sodium and the calories. Fortunately, cheese still makes my Controlled Substances list. Thanks for stopping by my blog, "Cheesecake - A Controlled Substance."

    Thanks for the SparkGoodie! I doubt I'll ever be the top weight loss leader any week. It takes everything I have to lose 2.3-2.6 lbs. in a week. I'm okay with that rate. I'm shooting for being the most consistent loser on the team.
