Profile and Goal Updates!

Saturday, January 14, 2012

I updated my profile today! It's a fine Saturday to do it, too-- I had been valiantly fighting off a cold that a visiting friend thought he'd leave me with but succumbed to it last night. Dang! I had a delightfully full day ahead, too. So it goes.

Even though I'm not in a fit state to get out and run around the forest, I am pretty pleased that I am still sparking in a sense. Here are some of the goals for my year and the updates made to my page:


Member Since: 11/29/2009

SparkPoints: 9,838

Fitness Minutes: 19,547

My Goals:
*To count calories and exercise each day while in Washington
*To take advantage of the awesome outdoors rather than the restaurants while in Hawai'i! Running, hiking, swimming, surfing, and Water polo! My favorite things!
On the farm:
*To keep snacks, beers, and sweets to a minimum
*Portion Control!
*To be a strong and svelt 165 by the end of the season.

*To record every book I read and buy
*To apply for graduate school in the Fall
*To work on my short story project consistently and to seek advice, editing, and support

My Program:
Cook fresh, healthy, and delicious eats, do some sort of exercise everyday, right now it's trail running or zumba.

Personal Information:
Currently Piled Around my Couch and nightstand:
"Troubles" by J.G. Farrell, "Inventing Ireland" by Declan Kibbard, "Feast for Crows" by George R.R. Martin, "At Home" by Bill Bryson.

My Digs for January 2012:
Adele "19", Wye Oak "Civilian", my Kindle (and reading the New Yorker on it each Monday!), Seattle Deli Mart!

Thrilling yes? Learned a bit about me, yes? Think it's time to go watch some BBC miniseries, YES! Fingers crossed I can run tomorrow.

    I lov your blog! When we go on vacation we try to make it more about sightseeing. Its a great way to stay away from food. Carbs are my weakness. :-)

    God bless & feel better.
