Treasure

But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body.
2 Corinthians 4:7-9

SparkPoints: 115,373

Fitness Minutes: 112,070

My Goals:
I reached my goal weight...that number that is on my driver's license. I need to continue to practice a healthy lifestyle that keeps me at or below that goal weight.
(update: I renewed and was able to lower the weight on my license! Now the challenge is to keep it there!)

My Program:
I need to continue to practice and develop healthy lifestyle habits. I have made big improvements in fitness and added activities such as Volkssport and cross-country skiing to things I like to do regularly. I love to cook and eat good food and need to learn that treats are "treats" to be consumed rarely.

Personal Information:
The clay jar is a good symbol for me -- it is a Christian metaphor, I have a BA in anthropology with heavy emphasis on Archaeology, I love the band "Jars of Clay", I garden in clay pots, and I am an amateur potter.

Thanks for the info about the Pac NW. We came for 10 years to the Discovery Walks in Vancouver, WA, and, while they existed, to the Victoria, BC, Blossom Walks/Victoria International Walking Festival. Always in April, we walked when the temperature was hot/cold/just right and in torrential downpours or in drought. We picked last November for a vacation there, because climatology said November was the wettest month. Wouldn't you know it rained part of one day during our ten-day stay? So we still don't have experience in prolonged cold and wet, though DH just spent a week at a retreat center two hours north of Seattle without warm/dry clothes (oops).

Hi again. Thanks for dropping by my blogs. I've been enjoying following your adventures also.

Yes if you are planning a visit to Texas the end of march/first of April would be a great time.
