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.

    “Get Off The Scale! You are beautiful. Your beauty, just like your capacity for life, happiness, and success, is immeasurable. Day after day, countless people across the globe get on a scale in search of validation of beauty and social acceptance.

    Get off the scale! I have yet to see a scale that can tell you how enchanting your eyes are. I have yet to see a scale that can show you how wonderful your hair looks when the sun shines its glorious rays on it. I have yet to see a scale that can thank you for your compassion, sense of humor, and contagious smile. Get off the scale because I have yet to see one that can admire you for your perseverance when challenged in life.

    It’s true, the scale can only give you a numerical reflection of your relationship with gravity. That’s it. It cannot measure beauty, talent, purpose, life force, possibility, strength, or love. Don’t give the scale more power than it has earned. Take note of the number, then get off the scale and live your life. You are beautiful!”

    STAND UP by Jessie J (shared by AJ, ANYA_ONION)

    If you surround yourself with negative people
    You'll never feel settled in or become an equal, no
    They'll suppress you of your spirit and rinse you dry of smiles
    So reach deep and release your inner child, yeah, yeah

    If you let a frown become your normality, yes
    You don't set an example for the youth of our humanity
    If you spend every day wishing for the next to come
    Aged and lifeless is what, yes, you'll become, yeah, yeah

    So ignore the bad and the good will soon come
    Don't think second best, be number one
    Spread some love, don't give to receive
    Strive to be happy and live to believe
