Hi there. Welcome to the page of a lifelong Yooper! What's a Yooper, you ask? Well, that would be the name of people from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I've lived up here my whole life and I love it. The pictures in my gallery will show you some of the reasons.

Of course cabin fever during our particularly snowy winters is something to be avoided at all costs! I like to cross country ski, snowshoe, and just play outside with my dogs and/or nieces and nephews during our snowy season(s). You have to embrace the white stuff or it'll get the best of you.

Hi,

Just wanted to say hello and compliment you on your picture gallery. Where you live is so beautiful!! I've visited Michigan before....Flint & Detroit and I must say, neither compare to where you live. The nature scenes really make you want to be right there!! Thank you for sharing what it like where you are....again, wonderful pictures

Nutrition is what I started with...let me know if you have any questions after you look at my logs. I am pretty detailed on them - I don't miss days! :)

Basically I start w/ the SAME b-fast everyday -it's fast it's easy it's drinkable so I have no excuses for not getting it in. From there I log everything BEFORE I eat it so I can see what affects what range. I may tweak and adjust when I actually go to cook it but if I start w/the idea of what I'm going to have then it's a little easier to see if I can fit something in and not go over.

Shoot me a spark mail or post a comment if you need more advice or directions I had a lot of help along the way so I'm happy to pass it along to others!

I did my first 5K in September 07. I did another one in November, but I walked 90% of it because it was so cold! It hurt to take deep breaths! I'm starting the C25K again, but am having a hard time fitting it in with a toddler! The next race I want to do is in April so I need to get moving. I joined WW as well to help get the weight down even more so it will be easier to run as well.
