Some day this will be me.





I went to Red Rock, and decided that I wanted to be a part of it.

Invincible Summer

2012 was spent wrestling myself back from a pretty intense depression. I'm at the heaviest I have ever been now, more so than even my previous point. And I hurt pretty badly pretty much every day.

I'm DONE. This changes now. My meds are in check now, I am consistently taking my suppliments as well, and I am the most determined and upbeat I have been in winter ever. So. I start again. And again. And make every day Day 1.

2012 was spent wrestling myself back from a pretty intense depression. I'm at the heaviest I have ever been now, more so than even my previous point. And I hurt pretty badly pretty much every day.

I'm DONE. This changes now. My meds are in check now, I am consistently taking my suppliments as well, and I am the most determined and upbeat I have been in winter ever. So. I start again. And again. And make every day Day 1.

Mid thirties, looking to be healthier. I have long term back problems (including two surgeries) which sometimes make it difficult to stay on track.

But I'm an athlete in my head, and I want to make that happen in reality. I love biking and hiking, and I'm hoping to get into rock climbing once I am strong enough for it.

With falling down, I can feel all the pain in my body again. So we start with exercise and moderation of eating. But I am focusing on what my body can do. Not on a weight goal. Because it bugs me now that I am less mobile than I was and I want to be out and about come spring again.

My Program:
Have as many options in the house to keep moving so that I don't get bored with it, and don't get overwhelmed:

Stairstepper
Wii Fit
Biking
Hiking

I'm tracking my food to make sure I keep myself honest and on target for what I'm eating. But I refuse to deny myself things in the grander scheme, just being careful to eat within my goals.

In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer. - Albert Camus
