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 3 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: 93,967

Fitness Minutes: 28,995

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 : )

Thank you very much for responding to my blog, hearing a mans point of view is refreshing you said the exact same thing as my hubby hahahaha
My husband said it's not like we live in filth our house is clean, but I always like the bells and whistles clean but my health has really been bad lately with the cold my body is in such pain.
As long as we have a nice Christmas who cares if there's a little dust here and there.
I love going to the craft fairs and always compliment the crafters I use to craft a lot and know the work that goes into it and you can never sell what you made for the actual time put into making it. I'm sure your wife makes beautiful things.
Thanks again for putting a smile on my face!

I think I hear a New Year's resolution is forthcoming, LOL.

Both Thanksgiving and XMAS are spent at my Mother-in-Law's. Her mission is to feed me well, often and to have to make a choice for dessert.

So, like you, I just roll with it, so to speak.
