This is going to be a long battle. At one time in my life, I was quite an athlete - I played basketball & soccer & ran track as a kid, & I've been an avid competitive swimmer for many years. Four years ago, I completed an Olympic triathlon with Team in Training.

But now, I'm not very active at all. I have a desk job & loads of excuses, as well as a wicked sweet tooth. But I also have a deep interest in changing my ways, & I see SparkPeople as playing an important role in this ...

But I also have a deep interest in changing my ways, & I see SparkPeople as playing an important role in this change. GI Joe said it best: "Knowing is half the battle", & if you use this website correctly, you will know quite a lot of things!

I am always looking for new SparkFriends so feel free to add me.

Fitness Minutes: 3,221

My Goals:
I am going lose these extra pounds, learn to adhere to a low-carb diet, & get downright religious about getting exercise on a regular basis.

My Program:
I'm using the food diary as a consciousness-raising exercise & I log my exercise so I can calculate how many calories I should be eating per day. Also, I have joined a USMS swim team (Texas Longhorn Masters, wooo!) & I want to work out with them 3 or 4 times a week.

Personal Information:
I keep a blog at http://angledge.livejournal.com.

Thanks for asking about the 100 push-ups challenge! Due to illness I had to put the start off a few days. Yesterday was Day 1 for push-ups & today will be Day 1 for squats. So far, so good!

I left Austin & moved to Chicago just over 10 years ago. There are some things that I miss (friends, open sky, Tex Mex, bbq) but I honestly couldn't handle the heat anymore. After 16 years there, I had to get out. My partner has a sister that still lives in Austin (another in Houston), so we still keep up with some of the goings-on down there.

I didn't mean a swimming goal. I meant any goal you want to set. There are lots of non-swimmers on our ...umm...swim team. We're just a really supportive team and anything we can do to help, we're happy to do so. We have members that wish they could swim, or that mean to swim. We don't care. So consider joining us on the daily thread!

Judgy for Buffy? Please.

Just rewatched the Buffy musical w/ wife. SHE has a choreographed dance that our home isn't big enough to contain. I find it charming!

So glad to hear that your shoulder is on the mend. Being injured is miserable esp. when you've been feeling those endorphins on a daily basis. Feels like a drug withdrawal (crying jags and everything!) - probably because it is. Hope you are having a fabulous week.

I'm actually in a 3-2 program with Potsdam and Clarkson University. So at the moment-I attend State University at Potsdam but next year I'll be over at Clarkson. About 3 hours straight North of Syracuse.
