Healthier Ken

My page title is also my goal--surprise, surprise! I live in a northern rural area and tend to work out at home, and it's easy to talk myself out of doing a workout. I'm hoping belonging to a group will help me stick on the straight and narrow. I'm married, have 2 children and 4 grandchildren. My wife and I are retired from the public education system and love to escape spring or fall 'mud seasons' in the north by going on cruises in the Caribbean or Mediterranean. Life is good!

Member Since: 8/17/2006

SparkPoints: 100,113

Fitness Minutes: 30,364

My Goals:
To keep my weight between 145 and 150 and to tighten up my muscle tone. I like being able to see my toes without having to look in the mirror : )

My Program:
Had a very successful bout with P90X early in 2011 but haven't been able to devote 30, 60, or 90 days consistently since. Never was a runner, but from January through April of 2012 I learned running the Jeff Galloway way with the intention of running a 10k event. This in response to a challenge from my sister to join her in the Vancouver Sun Run. Did the 10k no problem, then did 12k in a relay on Mothers' Day. Turns out I really like running so I guess that's my fitness program for the foreseeable future.

Personal Information:
My wife and I live on a beautiful property on the lake at 54.5� north latitude in central British Columbia, Canada. Nearest neighbour about half a mile away, nearest community about a 15 minutes' drive. Do I like solitude? You bet! I also like personal fitness activities, quiet times, outdoor work/play, politics, religion and community service. I enjoy live theatre. I avoid TV, the commercial entertainment industry and other mass media except CBC radio and the internet.

Other Information:
I'm a former Teacher/Librarian but you'd never know that by my current reading practices : ( It just took me almost six months to read "Shanataram". Excellent book, gripping story. It wasn't a difficult read, just had too much graphic violence for quick consumption. I think my summer read will be the full Harry Potter series (for the fourth time : )

Thanks for commenting on my blog. I've always wanted to snowshoe. I actually have a pair! I didn't realize it burned more calories than XC. But you don't get to zoom down hills! If you have any backcountry pics of XC trips or snowshoe I'd love to see them.

Thanks for the guitar. However, I may have to take off a couple strings. I'm a ukulele player. Yep, team leader of the Ukulele site. I can use the amp too, just got a tenor with a pick up.

Hope your weather isn't too bad. Lot of cold air blowing around. Fortunately, where I'm at in CA the temperatures have been in the low 70' F. lately. Our biggest problem is no rain.

CONGRATULATION ON PASSING 90,000 SPARK POINTS emoticon


My accomplishment, tonight I finished reading all the " Health A-Z Topics " from Z-A. I lost you along the way,. But understand, it got a bit tedious although there was interesting information.
