Nope, this is not my ride.





This is not a picture of me. :)

Uncommon Sense

I've studied science-based weightloss and exercise techniques for decades; I eschew woo-woo, magical, and hope-based interventions; I try to eat food, not too much, and mostly plants...but in living a busy life, I eat out too much, move too little, and lose track of how to keep this body healthy. I'm "sparking" so I can keep myself on track, in a sensible, practical way. We'll see how this goes.

My Goals:
I am more fit at 50+ than I was as a teenager; I aspire to keep that record going for as long as I can.

My Program:
Eat real food. Mostly plants, but not exclusively so. And not too much. Move in ways that make me happy (on bike, on trails) with people (and dogs!) who share my joy.

Personal Information:
I live on a planet that circumnavigates a smallish star in a largish universe. The odd circumstances of planetary tilt put me in a zone that has seasons where a molecule we call "water" can be found, naturally, in states solid, liquid, and suspended in gas. The last of these is most intolerable.

Other Information:
I try to be kind, but I will admit that I am kind of a smart***. Sorry about that.

Y'know, the pedicure might involve a foot massage. emoticon

I agree with you about the need for reading to develop critical thinking skills. Unfortunately, there appears to be a large segment of society that doesn't want people to have critical thinking skills.....

Thanks for helping me put things in perspective. I felt a NEED to do that swim this past weekend, rather than "just seeing how it felt" and then deciding what to do. And while my hyper-analytical and obsessive-compulsive personality can be really annoying, it has its benefits: I dissect, probe, analyze, and obsess over everything!

The primary purpose of the beach ball is visibility. I like the idea of the ring. I'll try to find a fairly large and obnoxiously bright one. Part of the problem I had is always battling the leash - it goes wherever the ball goes, and it's going to be in my way for at least part of the swim. (There's always something to complain about!)

There's a local group that does open water swims in the Columbia, and they require the visibility device. Once I'm comfortable swimming in the river, I'd like to join them - even though it means skipping a bike ride home from work.

Thanks for the comment on my blog. It occurred to me as I was limping to the finish that I'm pretty lucky: I have yet to have a DNF. I know it will happen some day - I'm not sure the woman with the mechanical problem finished - and I hope I handle it with grace!

I sure wish SparkPeople had an ice pack emoticon. I could really use one, but I have a cat on my lap.
