Capt. Mal Reynolds (Nathan Fillion) from "Firefly"--I'd sail the 'verse with him any day!





The Original Mythbusters--Bunsen and Beaker





Dr. Spencer Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler) of "Criminal Minds"--BRAAIINNSS! (I dig sexy geeks, sue me).

Tal, The Mad Writer's Hole in the Machine

Hey again (formerly Psychojules)--I'm trying to get out of my head more by writing it out and/or actually living my life...and that means getting out there in the sunshine and getting healthy, too! I'm working on my Master's Thesis in History and intend to write fiction on the side (when not looking for or working a full-time job). I want to get out there and have fun and meet new people instead of living inside my head.

SparkPoints: 5,851

Fitness Minutes: 2,044

My Goals:
I intend to lose weight and be much healthier about my lifestyle choices--whether socially or food-oriented. I want to spend more time outside out and about and use the stuff I already have to lose weight (like jump rope, bike, yoga stuff, running shoes, etc.)

My Program:
I will take at least 10 minutes out of every day to do some exercise. Whenever I have the ability and the time saved, I will get my bike out and go on long rides. I will also manage my time much better (starting this summer) and focus on writing my Thesis and fiction stories in between.

Personal Information:
I've been overweight about 20 years now and not terribly happy about that. I'm going to get back to consciously thinking about what I've been doing to myself and I intend to lose and keep weight off (and show myself that I can without yo-yo'ing) before my 30th birthday. I want to be out there and doing good things for myself and others instead of just thinking about it (well, I did mention I live inside my own head too much).

Other Information:
I love movies, Sci-Fi, and crime shows on TV. I fell in love with "Castle" this spring (its just so different, and yes, Nathan Fillion is just so smart and funny...and cute).

I'm also a Trekkie (original Trek, not the new one--Shatner is Kirk, dammit!). I also love "Firefly", "MST3K", "Burn Notice", "Criminal Minds", "The Glades", and NCIS (Tony Rocks!) I enjoy thinking up new things and trying to get my writing juices going (my other major resolution is to finish a story and get it published, then keep going with more).

Success is a Choice
-Unknown
"Today I will make many choices, and each will have a consequence. Today I can choose to tell myself that I am worth the effort, or I can tell myself doesn't matter, I'll do it tomorrow. Today I can choose to journal, or I can choose not to. Today I can choose to drink my water, or I can choose to be
dehydrated. Today I can choose to stay in my points range, or I can choose to hinder my goals. Today I can choose to be more active, or I can choose to take the easy way. Today I can choose to be motivated, or I can choose to tell myself "I can't." Today I can choose success. IT IS MY CHOICE."

“The difference between stepping stones and stumbling blocks is not in the event itself but how you think about it and what you do after it.
Every failure and setback can become part of your success or an excuse for quitting or failing.
People who develop the discipline of positivity are both happier and more successful."
-Michael Josephson

Just dropping by to say hello, Sparkfriend! Remember, you don't have to be perfect on this journey in order to make progress! As long as you keep trying...and never quit...you are already a success! Keep doing your best, because you are worth the effort!
Hugs,
Pixie

"Part of abandoning the all-or-nothing mentality is allowing yourself room for setbacks.
We are bound to have lapses on the road to health and wellness, but it is critical that we learn how to handle small failures positively so that we can minimize their long-term destructive effects.
One setback is one setback—it is not the end of the world, nor is it the end of your journey toward a better you.”
-Jillian Michaels

"It is rewarding to find someone you like, but it is essential to like yourself.
It is quickening to recognize that someone is a good and decent human being, but it is indispensable to view yourself as acceptable.
It is a delight to discover people who are worthy of respect and admiration and love, but it is vital to believe yourself deserving of these things."
~Jo Coudert

Hugs,
Pixie

"My invitation to you is to begin living every moment as though you are miraculous and deserve to live an extraordinary life.
Fake it if you must and keep faking it until it’s real to you. The gift you will be giving yourself is a lifelong journey of discovery, one that is infinite and infinitely rewarding. Begin the journey. Today. This moment. Now."
-Robert White
