Oh my... straight from a snow spring, to a hot humid summer with no air conditioning in the office!

Originally, I came to SparkPeople because...
Well... I already use, and a friend that I mud with on IceWind MUD suggested that I try sparkpeople. So... here I am. Trying to lower my cholesterol, tone up, and feel energized.

Current Motivational Quote:
Begin -- to begin is half the work, let half still remain; again begin this, and thou wilt have finished.

Member Since: 6/20/2007

Fitness Minutes: 155

My Goals:
Lowering my cholesterol will help reduce my risk of heart disease later in life. I'm also epileptic and fighting insulin resistance. Since I have a loving family, I have a lot of motivation to keep everything under control.

My Program:
Right now I am trying to do cardio at least 5 times a week for at least 60 minutes per day, and strength training (using the exercises suggested here!) at least 3 times per week. I always forget to log all my cardio here, but I will try and do better in the future.

Personal Information:

I live in central Pennsylvania, where we have some of the best Arts Festivals in the Northeast!

I work for a giant huge beast of a university in the Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics, but my degrees are actually in Animal Sciences (B.S. and M.S.). I began pursuing a PhD in Physiology but stopped due to complications from having epilepsy.

It takes a lot of time to be a genius, you have to sit around so much doing nothing, really doing nothing. - Gertrude Stein

    Hey! Are you still using this? I just started up again. I keep getting fatter. It's not a good thing.

    I saw you on the writers workshop team I wanted to invite you to another team (okay so it's mine!) because I'm about to start Script Frenzy this April and need something to keep me on track. The workshop will keep me writing but I need a challenge to go with it and yet want some people who know what it's like to combine writing and staying fit. The team is called, "The Challenge" and can be found on my sparks page. Hope to see you there. I'm starting a new challenge for us this April.
