I am a 56 year old retired Marine living in the Wisconsin countryside with Genie, my wife and best friend. We have 10 1/2 acres of land that has not been cleared except for where the house is. So we enjoy our privacy and the occasional visit from many of our wildlife friends. It is not uncommon for us to watch deer playing in the front yard while we have our morning coffee and chipmunks like to come in and hide acorns in our shoes. Since Spot and Not, our 2 mutant cats, I call them mutant because they are so big, joined the family after we rescued them from the shelter, the acorns don't show up quit as much. Genie works for a large company in Madison and I am semi retired. She started a small business of her own a few years ago making handcrafted jewelry. I taught myself how to do wire wrapping and now we work and attend craft shows together.

After I retired from the Marines I started putting on weight. Genie and I love to cook and eat so now we both have to pay the fiddler. I am looking forward to this journey with her and the friends we will make here.

THE JOURNEY OF A THOUSAND MILES STARTS WITH A SINGLE STEP!!

Let the journey begin.

Fitness Minutes: 25,072

My Goals:
I want to get back to a healthy weight so I don't feel winded just climbing the stairs. I need to get back to that Marine Corp fighting trim so I can keep up with all my grand kids.


My Program:
I am using the nutrition tracker to develop healthy eating habits and stay ahead of the game. We just bought a Wii with the EA Active and Fitness programs to make trying to get more exercise in these Wisconsin winters more doable and enjoyable. I will track that with the Fitness Tracker.

    ~{}~ emoticon emoticon ~{}~A Meaning of Friendship~{}~ emoticon emoticon ~{}~

    I think if I've learned anything about friendship, it's to hang in, stay connected,
    fight for them, and let them fight for you.
    Dont walk away, don't be distracted, don't be too busy or tired, don't take them for granted.
    Friends are part of the glue that holds life and faith together.

    emoticon emoticon Thank you for your friendship emoticon emoticon

    be as strong as a diamond, be colorful like a rainbow,
    but most important, be yourself.""

    Do what makes you happy, be with who makes you smile,
    laugh as much as you breathe, and love as long as you live.

    emoticon emoticon A Little Bit of Laughter emoticon emoticon

    Even if there is nothing to laugh about....laugh on credit.

    Live like spongebob...laugh out loud all day without any reason and annoy
    all the mean people with happiness.

    When a person can no longer laugh at himself, it is time for others to laugh at him.
    ~Thomas Szasz~

    You laugh, I laugh...you cry, I cry.
    You fall, I laugh, then fall too, because I was laughing too hard.

    I laugh even harder when I try to explain why I'm laughing.

    Nothing compares with the stomach ache you get from laughing with your best friend.
    My favorite pain is in my stomach when my friends make me laugh too hard.
