Hi I don't know how I got to be how I am- all I know is I don't like where I am at . (Actually thats NOT totally true but it sounds better than "I F****D up"). I actually was doing this a couple of years ago on and off and was using a treadmill every night for about an hour and was doing OK until Fox cancelled Glen Beck and the motor burnt out of the treadmill..... Now I either walk or ride the bike and lift weights I am also trying to be more active around the house and even though at times the scale doesn't show a difference, I CAN feel a difference. THAT'S WHAT TRULY COUNTS. I am really beginning to miss karatedo but I don't know if I can ever go back as I HATED the politics and favouritism (YES it exists). I know I could go train elsewhere but it would cost money- I think I put enough blood sweat and tears into the "other" umbrella organisation that I could get away with training for free (its just a question of putting up with the BS).

To get fitter. And not obsess too much about my weight (at least not for now).

I am currently attempting to complete the "One Hundred Push Ups Programme"

My Program:
cycling ,some walking , weights, callisthenics.
I would practise my karate ( I am a yondan) if someone else didn't want all the basement rumpus room when she moved back in. ( used to use the treadmill in there and watch the Glen Beck show for an hour)

I want to lose weight and get fit so I can sign up in the reserves and get my commission.

I still obsess about my psychologically scarring Calculus courses at college.
(years later
I can remember formulas I couldn't recall when I needed THEM).

    I did not know that about Canadians and guns.... but it figures that if you had your gun stolen, having it registered would be a great way of claiming it again... I suspect that many Canadians in the wilder provinces need some way of controlling varmints, just like Texans do!

    Just stopped by to say HELLO Friend. Thanks for your support on my Food Pyramid post. I really expected push back on that. Was so relieved that SPARKlers,if not SP itself, are aware how faulty Food Pyramid is-citing need for50% of diet be carbs! SAD!

    Thanks for your nice comments on my Alaska blog. Yes the terrain is much like Northern Alberta -- I haven't been to the NW Territory (yet). Hope your rain has ended, and that the inhaler is helping your lungs

    A PICC line is like a semi permanent point to put medicine (antibiotics in my case) into a patient without having to have a constant injections or an IV line "Peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC)
    A PICC has a long line that sends medication from the area of insertion, through your blood vessels, all the way to a vein near your heart. A PICC is typically placed in a vein above your elbow in your upper arm." (from Mine was by my right bicep. And yeah it hurt when they pulled it out.
