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 ...

Member Since: 10/14/2007

SparkPoints: 46,885

Fitness Minutes: 40,346

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.

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
