One Step at a Time...That's how you don't fall

In 2014 I stuck with my resolution to love my body and let the weight take care of itself, even though things didn't work out like I had hoped. Now in 2015, I am still in the process of learning how to walk all over again--recovering from two orthopedic surgeries, while trying to pick up and resume normal daily activities.

I have been on Spark for almost 8 years now. In that time a lot of life happened, and I have gained more than weight than I set out to lose, but know what I ...

SparkPoints: 47,638

Fitness Minutes: 41,242

My Goals:
Short term:

1) Get back in the habit of tracking calories & watching sugar intake, especially since I don't have the option right now to go for a run or walk to burn off a lot of excess.
*SUCCESS!!! 2/5/15*


2) Earn a monthly award for 1000 Spark points.


Long term:
1) Keep my stress down.

2) Keep my house back in order...reduce backlogged clutter, cook more often, and keep it open and welcoming for friends and family members to visit.

3) Get more sleep--in bed by 11:30 on weeknights.


Super Long term goals:

1) Get back into a healthy weight range.

2) Continue to work on lowering my cholesterol and watching my blood pressure.



My Program:
Physical Therapy Exercises for my knee and ankle joints take priority at the moment, but I do also try to sneak some "bonus strength" to work my arms and core!

Other Information:
My name here is rockrunner404, which is modeled after an email address created during a time in my life when I was most active and fit. I will always be a nerdy rock collector at heart and I will always love distance running to help keep me in shape. I have run many 5K and 10K races over the last several years, and so far I have completed two full (Pittsburgh) marathons in 2003 and 2010. I am not sure when I will be able to run again due to my current injury situation, but I won't give up hope.

Hey lady. Miss Dora is a sweetheart. She doesn't take Jasper's spot in my heart but I think he'd be happy I have a new buddy. We are crazy. We are on the list for a male mantle (looks like Jasper) next year at this time so we'll have two danes and Miss Maggie. I would love a playmate for Dora now but we're not sure our little house OR my nerves could handle three of them and the puppy stage?!* OY! emoticon

He is studying Information Systems and Communication. It is a cohort program and he'll have his degree in three years start to finish. He is retiring from the USMC and professors have to have a doctorate in most colleges/universities. He will be a forever student!

It's a small world right? I had Maggie with me so I didn't leave the room much this weekend but Pittsburgh looks like a city I need to roam.

Brian has both wrists solid hardware and is still a triathlete. Never say never girl!

Good shoes and orthotics too!

I just reread your profile info and you have done two Pittsburgh marathons. How far are you from Pittsburgh? My DH goes to school at Robert Morris University one week and two full weeks working on his doctorate. I was just there last weekend for the first time picking up our great dane puppy. Our beloved Jasper passed away a month ago now and is over the Rainbow Bridge.

How are you? Love your profile picture btw!
