I joined SparkPeople ages ago, and I've been both more and less focused over the years. I'm in my mid-40's and I spend too much time sitting in chairs and not enough time moving around. It's time to be healthier!

It's 2013 and hopefully things will be amazing!!

Member Since: 1/9/2006

Fitness Minutes: 2,192

My Goals:
12/27/11: My long-term weight-loss goal is to get back to165-170 (for reference, I'm 5'7"). More importantly, I want to get in much better physical shape so that I am not out of breath and can do things without feeling limited by my weight and attendant aches & pains.

I would like to continue to make exercise a regular part of my life.

I would like to get more and better sleep.

I want to complete C25K. (Okay, I want to start C25K!)

I want to fit back into my kayak.

I want to fit into the box of "Will fit into eventually" clothes from before (even if I promptly dispose of them afterwards!)

My Program:
I am eating less, and trying to focus on getting good protein and a small amount of carbs. I am roughly shooting for my Spark suggested range although when I start seriously strength training that will have to adjust somewhat.

I am making better choices generally, and tracking my food (most of the time).

I am drinking water and have almost entirely given up diet soda and artificial sweeteners.

I am being more protective of my time and setting boundaries so I am not working constantly.

I am trying to go to bed on time.

I train with a trainer at my gym twice a week, and I shoot for three other days of cardio.

Personal Information:
I work a moderately-stressful desk job with long hours, and spend too much time on the PC. I am a writer, photographer and genealogist, I love to cook. Over the past couple of years I have started gardening a bit. I also like online gaming and home-brewing.

I'm married and cats let me live in their house.

    Happy Easter ...too hard not to get excited about such a great day. emoticon

    Wishing you only the greatest of everything. Hope this spring is the time to reach those goals, get closer or to start again. emoticon

    Watch out because I am back and ready to run, walk, cycle and do whatever it takes to meet my goals. What about you?

    Hello, SparkFriend,
    Gryffindor emoticon Hufflepuff emoticon Ravenclaw emoticon Slytherin emoticon
    I realize you have teams that work and teams that don't. Sometimes trying out a new team finds a fit.

    Today, I am going through my SparkFriend's list, on my SparkPage and sending out an invitation. Please come check out our HOGWARTS Winter*Term Owl*Mail team (located as my 1st team under my teams). It is set up for a waiting list to the upcoming winter*term. We have a 12 wk challenge (multiple choices) designed for your own personal 'fit' and, Challengers of HOGWARTS winter*term 2, is coming up, on December 1st. It is a private team, so you need to join the owl*mail team if you want to be Sorted.

    I created a blog about it, today, so please stop in and read it. If you're looking for a really refreshing new way to focus on your goals and form new friendships plus join in the celebrations of the seasons in a *fun* virtual online wizarding world ... please come.

    Join me for a whole new adventure.
