Writing a new chapter here...fully settling into a new age 30 decade while still trying to clean up a sort of mess I made in my 20s. I am everything from a caffeine addicted burned out working mother to a survivor who was truly given a brand new chance. Right now I''m working on consistently tracking food again. This means Not eating what I want, when I want...becoming more carb aware, and trying to rein it in on the sugary foods. Hoping that some small steps can lead to big changes.

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!

Personal Information:

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.

    I know, its really scary to think of all the junk and chemicals that are put into our food to make it cheaper. I cringe when I think of it.

    I need to get some wheat flour one of these days but I always forget when I'm at the store.

    So what do you guys have planned for the weekend? How's it been with baby Kolt at home now? We dont have much planned. A friend of Nicks thinks he is having a bday bonfire at his house but I'm thinking its going to be cold and snowy so he'll have to ditch the idea... and if he doesn't either ditch the bonfire idea and opt for an inside party I'm not going. Other than that my weekend is going to be pretty dull. I am sad to see the nice warm sunny weather go :-(

    Well back to work I go, have a good weekend!
