Hello, my name is Al.
I used to be a member here on SparkPeople.
Just kidding, of course I'm still here. I just haven't done much here other than log in every once in a while and watch myself get 1 or 2 points on the wheel.

So what is UP, yall?

I have to say, April was pretty good for me. I really felt as good as I've felt in a long time.

I got reconnected with some high-school friends.
I went to several awesome concerts and shows, including my favorite band The Wedding Present, at venues small enough to be considered my living room.
I got an unexpected tax refund.
I ripped my bedroom apart and am enjoying redecorating.
I started writing a script for a silly video I've had in mind.
I bought an animation program, and I've been learning that new skill.
I shaved my manly beard.

In general, I feel very happy and loved lately. I haven't really watched TV or movies or been on the computer too much. I've been going out and DOING things, if you can believe that.

I haven't tracked food or done much exercising, or even biking! But it's all good. I'm in a good place right now.

Love to you all!

    Glad to see you back. I too have been in a similar place as you. Just really getting out and moving. Not trying to control every aspect. It is very liberating. Glad to see you are well!!

    While I miss your blogs, I'm so glad to hear that you are in a good place right now. Enjoy your bike and let us see photos of your decorating job when you are done! Also- we definitely need a "no beard" shot. Ha!

    it's nice to hear from you. I need to blog soon, but mine will be pretty similar to yours. I still log in all the time, I just haven't posted much lately. Happy Spring! emoticon

    It's funny how life is so much more fulfilling when you actually LIVE IT, instead of planning and trying to control every aspect of it. Have missed you here on SP but you've been absent for an excellent reason. Hoping you stay absent and happy!

    I totally love looking at the backgrounds of peoples pics and what they have in their houses!

    On the off chance that you find time to read this, may I say I am so happy for you!

    Redecorating can be a remarkable sign. Your surroundings don't "fit" anymore. Being creatively inspired to tackle that video and learning new skills is also evidence of growth and change.

    I love the payoff periods where the pieces of my life synchronize!

    Sounds like you had a really good month. Sometimes we all need an exercise break to make it fun and exciting again.
