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"

Fitness Minutes: 43,097

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!

Happy pi day! I was a envious of your commemorative bumbleberry pie, because most of the day, I was with my Mom and thinking of her and not pi day. Then I realized that we had had pizza pie for lunch and supper, and life is good.

Now, concerning pi day. Are you looking forward to 3/14/15 as the perfect day, or holding out for 3/14/16?

Hey number nerd! I've been missing your smiling mug on the sparkpoints leaderboard. If you're not back, what am I going to do on Pi day?
