Well, I've been off of here a while. New things, in order:

Birth of beautiful baby girl!
Quit Job
Moved to Michigan
Started graduate school (Master's of Divinity)
Became a desk-potatoe
Started riding bike to school in January.

Those last two are why I'm back on SparkPeople. I don't want to become the atrophied overweight graduate student I see so much of everywhere. Since starting school I've added a few pounds and my pants are a testament to that. This conundrum ties in neatly with a specific project I've been working on:

Last semester, I crafted a "Rhythm of Life" which is an all-encompasing plan of who I want to be and what steps I'm going to try to undertake in the next two semesters to get there. This will be a plan that changes every couple of semesters as my goals change, but its kinda a guide to help me stay focused on the good. Richard Foster, Dallas Willard, & Robert Mulholland Jr. are responsible for this.

My two goals for January: a) Ride my bike to school every day that its feasible. Note: I am very well prepared for riding in inclement weather, so that's not a very good excuse for me not to ride. B) Stop snacking. No more snacks. no no no. Eat a real breakfast and lunch so that I don't have to snack during the day.

I thought I'd try to get back into SparkPeople to help me keep track of these goals. We'll see how it goes!

    Welcome back to then Spark. Grad school is when I began to gain weight and it took me almost 15 years to realize how heavy I had become and about 5 years to finally find the right way to do something about it. Good luck!
