Bio!

I am a geek. I like my role playing games, I love my history, I knit, I read, I spend way too much time on the computer. :) But I also love the outdoors, and I realized that my lifestyle has become increasingly sedentary (and indoor) as I've gotten older. I'd like to be able to go camping again. I want to hike properly and not get winded before I get halfway down the trail. I want to play with my niece and keep up with her! (or at least try). I do have diabetes - well, pre-diabetes, and my doctor has said I can control it with diet and exercise, and that I'm doing all the right things with Sparkpeople!

Its going to be tough, working against so many years of apathy and sedentary behaviour, but if others can do it, so can I.

    Many thanks for taking the time and trouble to read and comment on my blog. I really do appreciate it! (Another ill-deserved 15-minutes of Sparky fame seems to be rolling now thanks to Spark mail...)

    Please consider joining (what may be) the most active and involved team on all of Spark: The 100 Days of Summer 2012 Challenge Team.

    If ever I can be of assistance to you in any way, please do not hesitate to ask. As Kasey Kasem used to say, "Keep Your Feet on the Ground and Keep Reaching for the Stars!" (and what he meant was, "Keep on Sparking!" )
