My Journey

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 ...
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.

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.

When you're in jail, a good friend will be trying to bail you out.
A best friend will be in the cell next to you saying "Damn, that was fun."

The best way to lose weight is to close your mouth,
or watch your food. Just watch it, never eat it.

Throughout my life, I've always been afraid
of losing the people I love.
But then, sometimes I wonder,
is there anyone out there afraid of losing me?

People say you don't know what you have till it's gone.
Truth is, you knew what you had,
you just thought you'd never lose it

emoticon emoticon emoticon FRIENDS and FRIENDSHIP emoticon emoticon emoticon

Friends are the family you choose – Jess C. Scott

A friendship that can end never really began – Publilius Syrus

Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down. – Oprah Winfrey

Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: ‘What! You too? I thought I was the only one. ― C.S. Lewis

I value the friend who for me finds time on his calendar, but I cherish the friend who for me does not consult his calendar. – Robert Brault

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. Don’t 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. Powerful stuff. – Jon Katz
