Chasing after health - and I'm GOING to catch it!

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'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"

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!

Thanks for stopping by my blog, and for the nice comments you left. Yes I will get some great summer days yet; however this weekend will be hot and humid so may not get out in that mess much.

Love LaCrosse ! Been there many times on trips heading north.
We've stayed at the Bikini Yacht Club, Black's Cove, and the City Marina. Had a crazy night bar hopping downtown (and I am a drinking lightweight which really made it interesting). Love the little boat houses along the Black River.
We live near the Quad Cities.

Is it almost too hot to go swimming today??? I think not !
Gonna go swimming in that muddy river...no problem...!
