My Goals:
My Goals when I started were to lose some weight, get heahlty and get my strength back up to par in order to compete in the Scottish Heavy Events. I have found however, that I ended up losing more weight than I initially intended, and now fear I'm too light to compete. We'll see in a few months how I feel. I don't want to give up the body composition I've attainted.

My Program:
My program initially consisted of a strict reduced cclorie diet, coupled with a walking program of at least 60 minutes per day and weights three times a week. I so enjoyed my workouts, I gradually increased my program to include 30-40 minutes of runninbg per day, along with a 30-40 minute walk (lisitening to books on tape) each day, circuit training with weights twice per week and with resistance bands 3 times per week. Pushups and Crunches before bed each night. Still tracking food and workouts.

Personal Information:
I'm from northern CA, love to hike, play golf and watch sports. I Enjoy family events and togetherness. I'm a former track and field atlhete and a retired law enforcement officer.

Other Information:
I love to read (Davinci Code Genre), run in the rain, and root for the Giants, Warriors, and 49'ers.

Thanks for the wonderful comments on my blog. I have sewn all my life and have fun doing it. Hopefully some of my family appreciate it. Most sewers these days are into quilting, and I do that, too. Have a great Christmas!

Thanks for checking out my blog. If you would like to learn more about the Maffetone method, Phil Maffetone has a website where you can download a number of the articles from his book for free. There is also a long thread about the method on the barefoot forum of Runner's World.

Thanks for reading my blog and commenting, DAV128. You're absolutely right--the joys, peace and natural beauty of living in a rural area completely outweigh the inconvenience of an occasional drive 'out' to take advantage of what the city offers : )
