Goal #1: To return to the study of Kendo





I've only ever played cricket once... I'd love to get another chance!





Goal #2: To be as fit as I was back in my lacrosse days



I have 13 pics in my gallery

I've joined SparkPeople because I've been so impressed by all of the support that my wife (Hope2011) has gotten, and I wanted to be a part of this journey with her!

Goal weight: 220

Eventually I'd like to return to both Kendo and fencing. That's a long-term goal, but something to keep in mind.



My Program:
My wife (Hope2011) and I are eating a mostly vegetarian diet (although I just can't resist some seafood now and then).

I am also trying to find an exercise program that I can stick with. I loved Judo, but cannot continue with it due to prior injuries. Right now, walking our four dogs (!!) is my main source of exercise, and some walking on campus. I also Wii whenever I can.

I'm trying to keep to a caloric intake of 2000 or less per day, and eventually hope to incorporate a 30 minute workout five days a week. That has been going well, but the exercise has been rather low-impact. I need to get my heart pumping during my workouts!

Personal Information:
I am a graduate student in NW Ohio. My wife has been a member of Sparkpeople for two years, and I am glad to join her here!



Other Information:
I enjoy reading (right now, lots of steampunk and cyberpunk); I love fencing, though I haven't done it in years.

PhD coursework starts in the fall! Woo-hoo!

Thanks for the encouragement on my blog! We just got done writing out a menu for the next week. My husband even bought a new cookbook for healthy meal ideas. emoticon
