Member Since: 10/14/2007

SparkPoints: 44,248

Fitness Minutes: 35,587

My Goals:
Short term:

1) Keep my stress down.

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

2) Get more sleep--started heading for bed by 11:00 on weeknights.

3) Re-train at running.

4) Find a way to work in fruit and veggie juicing.

5) Earn a monthly award on Spark people for 1000 fitness minutes.

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:
The reality is that I don't have a lot of "me" time lately. So I take every opportunity that I find in each day to exercise....even if I don't get to burn as many calories as I would like, it's still something.

I still need to do a better job on staying in my calorie range, but I have come a long way in the last few years.

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. Even though spare time is hard to come by these days, 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.

Wow, it's a brand new day. One that has miracles for us, joy for us, new adventure, knowledge for our taking, and numerous messages and proof of how much we are loved. I hope that you can embrace and discover all that this day has in store just for you.

There is nothing that we can give to the Lord to repay His goodness and mercy but we can give offering of praise to show our gratitude.

I never truly understood how much my mother touched other peoples' lives by the messages she sent them or the cards until she left this world. Everyday she would write someone or send a card. She has been gone for 17 years, yet a month does not go by that some stranger comes up to me and ask me if I am my mother's daughter (I look so much like her). Than I am told what a blessing she was in their life.

Wow, what a beauty legacy she left--the gift of love by helping others wither her kindness and words.

I pray that I can, like her, be a blessing to others. This quote reminds me of my mother: The purpose of human life is to serve, and to show compassion and the will to help others.- Albert Schweitzer
