I am really good at doing nothing. I can really use improvement in going outside and simply be in the moment. No timing my walk. Just relaxing and enjoying the day.... Read more

UPDATE: I'd dropped out of the Spark scene for quite a while. In order to make the standard Army measurements I had to engage in some unhealthy habits but, it had to be done. Since surgery just over I year ago, I have lost nearly 40 pounds (2... Read more
