Healthier Ken

My page title is also my goal--surprise, surprise! I live in a northern rural area and tend to work out at home, and it's easy to talk myself out of doing a workout. I'm hoping belonging to a group will help me stick on the straight and narrow. I'm married, have 2 children and 4 grandchildren. My wife and I are retired from the public education system and love to escape spring or fall 'mud seasons' in the north by going on cruises in the Caribbean or Mediterranean. Life is good!

SparkPoints: 105,267

Fitness Minutes: 31,449

My Goals:
To keep my weight between 145 and 150 and to tighten up my muscle tone. I like being able to see my toes without having to look in the mirror : )

My Program:
Had a very successful bout with P90X early in 2011 but haven't been able to devote 30, 60, or 90 days consistently since. Never was a runner, but from January through April of 2012 I learned running the Jeff Galloway way with the intention of running a 10k event. This in response to a challenge from my sister to join her in the Vancouver Sun Run. Did the 10k no problem, then did 12k in a relay on Mothers' Day. Turns out I really like running so I guess that's my fitness program for the foreseeable future.

Personal Information:
My wife and I live on a beautiful property on the lake at 54.5� north latitude in central British Columbia, Canada. Nearest neighbour about half a mile away, nearest community about a 15 minutes' drive. Do I like solitude? You bet! I also like personal fitness activities, quiet times, outdoor work/play, politics, religion and community service. I enjoy live theatre. I avoid TV, the commercial entertainment industry and other mass media except CBC radio and the internet.

Other Information:
I'm a former Teacher/Librarian but you'd never know that by my current reading practices : ( It just took me almost six months to read "Shanataram". Excellent book, gripping story. It wasn't a difficult read, just had too much graphic violence for quick consumption. I think my summer read will be the full Harry Potter series (for the fourth time : )

Happy Easter one day early!

Wishing you only the greatest of everything. Hope this spring is the time to reach those goals, get closer or to start again. emoticon

Watch out because I am back and ready to run, walk, cycle and do whatever it takes to meet my goals. What about you?

Jeez, Paul. Sorry you're still my weight now that my weight's *blush* what it is! What to do? Well, I've taken pics of my renewed belly bulge and am threatening Self that I'll use that on my SparkPeople profile if I don't start the downward slide on the tracker soon. That's the stick.
We are going to England in a couple of weeks and if I can lose a few before we go, I'll be gentle re: SparkPeople living till we get home. That's the carrot. Truth be told, I'll probably just muddle along till we're home and then hit SparkPeople living again with a vengeance. You?

Ken, thanks for the goodie!

I've been in diet "purgatory" for a couple of months and weight has increased to 168 (I changed a while back to body fat, not to hide but to incent).

So, I had to check your weight to see if you were on track. It seems like we in sync with our weight. Question is how to do we get back to below 160?
