Thanks for visiting my page!

Please share your story - your wins, tips and strategies! Share whatever you like from your journey ... I'm really interested in making Spark-Friends who are also pursuing becoming healthier and fitter.

I've been on SP a while - but it's only been in the last 6 or so months that I've really gotten involved and started to take advantage of everything here.

I used to be a pretty fit (though still 20-30lb over-weight) vegan who jogged/biked everywhere. But - I had a horrible year - where I got burned after 7 years of working 80 hrs/week - my mom passed away, and I became an insomniac constantly getting sick and/or injured. I'm finally beyond all that and able to really make getting healthy a priority.

And - here's a little more info:

I'm self-employed as a campus minister on 3 different campuses.

I Love all sorts of out-door activities and live in a great area for hiking, biking, paddling, skiing, camping and such. In fact - I'm hoping to do a kayaking trip around the Apostle Islands in summer 2014.

I am turning my tiny 1/10th acre property into an urban farm using permaculture and organic/sustainable techniques, Most recently I added 5 chickens. They are the funniest creatures.

I have tons of hobbies - beyond the ones mentioned above - like calligraphy, quilting, reading (mostly non-fiction), writing (both non-fiction and fiction), cooking, all kinds of DIY, travel, photography (though I'm kind of horrible at it), playing guitar (even worse at that - but it's fun)

I love ancient church history - especially the first 3-4 centuries - this a new thing so I still have a lot to learn - I'm especially fascinated by the first hermits/ascetics who wandered out into the desert to pray and meditate.

I have a degree in 20th century German existentialist philosophy with minors in French, Swahili and Chemistry. For reals

I'm a "recovering anorexic-turned-munch-a-holic"





Member Since: 5/18/2010

Fitness Minutes: 83,060

My Goals:
Lose a few pounds, get fit, fully recover from too many injuries - and have a great time loving life this summer.


My Program:
counting calories, living more active, bike commuting - and I became vegan (mostly for health reasons - but I've learned enough I don't think I'd ever go back to eating the way I used to)



Personal Information:
I've traveled quite a bit - and have lived in a few different places - but think it'd be great to "settle down" and set up a nice homestead well off the beaten path.


Other Information:
Hoping to send as much time as possible hiking, kayaking, camping, backpacking, biking, swimming etc. this summer!

    Thank you for the tips and info on micro greens. I checked Pinterest and youtube and got several great ideas. We are trying our hand at carrots right now. They seemed an easy place to start. We are also growing some mint, rosemary and basil right now. Again, thank you so much for sharing!!
