Welcome to the team and SP. It's a great place to start the healthy eating habits. The nutrition tracker really helped me to change the way I eat. I am actually conscious of what I eat now. Needless to say the people here are great for the motivation.
Hi everyone! I'm new and wanted to introduce myself.
1. I'm a nontraditional full time student at ISU (back in school full time at 31 with a baby on the way).
2. I have never gotten extremely overweight, but I do have a few pounds to lose, and I have never been good about consistently exercising or eating right. I have been running (albeit not as consistently as I wish) for about 6 years, and have never done a race longer than a 10k, so I am in training for a half marathon this fall, and next year I will do a marathon.
3. I want a lasting lifestyle change, and a commitment to keeping myself healthy for myself and my family. I am excited about SP as a tool to help me make the changes I need.
4. My wife and I have 2 Great Danes.
5. I hate cats.
6. I love coffee.
7. I play 5 instruments... piano, bass, guitar, drums, and sax. I have played professionally at times.
8. I am an artist... I love to draw and paint and love all types of artwork and architecture. I spent almost ten years designing jewelry as my main income, and I am now studying graphic design.
9. I am not a big fan of cold weather, and lived in FL for a time, but I am probably in IA for good, since my wife loves it here, and I love my wife.
10. I would love to meet a few friends to help keep me on track, for mutual encouragement, so if you want to know more send me a message!
