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 ...

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).

My Goals:
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 max is about 30 at a time now which thankfully is more than the # of reps yet- you do 5 or 6 sets of reps 3x a week for this week (week 3) I am not looking forward to weeks 5 & 6 .

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)

YEAH YEAH I know REAL GUYS don't love cats (too bad I grew up with a cat who lived to be 17)

Other Information:
I want to lose weight and get fit so I can sign up in the reserves and get my commission.
I am an (underemployed) engineering technologist
finished reading "we were soldiers and young" and a "Better War" (an almost biography of Gen Crieghton Abrams).
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).

Hi Chris -
thanks for commenting on the fractals/mandelbrot photo (one I had swiped elsewhere off the Internet).

I found these movies on YouTube - the one has music from David Gilmore from Pink Floyd but is narrated by the late Arthur C Clarke and unfortunately is NOT captioned, so I'm kinda clueless. But it's not quite an hour long - might be long enough to run on your treadmill with it playing?

OH here's the same Arther Clarke narration but broken up in 6 segments and Google-captioned (which is to say, not very well done at all...)...

I had no idea that Canadians felt that way about Toronto. LOL. In my area people feel that way about East St. Louis. The place is a mess.

Hi Chris - Thanks for visiting my page and leaving a comment on one of my photos. Both my parents are gone now, and I miss them a lot.
