Ahoy!

My husband and I have swashed our buckles a few times at the Portland Pirate Festival, and my pirate name is Iron Bess.

A few years ago on the day before my birthday, I received a scary medical diagnosis. I sure didn't feel like an Iron Bess then. I've realized with time, however, that I'm not defined by a medical condition, that I'm still a person with hopes, joys, dreams, abilities, good friends and family.

My Goals:
To weigh less each month for however long it takes to reach my goal of 125-130 lbs.

I've divided the total desired weight loss into smaller sections. The ticker shows the first 25 lbs. Seems less daunting and more achievable that way.




My Program:
*Ride exercise bike 1 mile or more four or more days a week plus occasional other exercise such as Wii, yoga, walking for variety.
*Core strength exercise with stability ball 3 times a week.
*Track food daily online or in a notebook
*Log in to SparkPeople daily
*Eat nourishing whole food, low fat, low or no refined carbs
*Measure waist 1st of every month and check in with Spark buddy
*Start the day with a cuppa and a little inspirational reading.

Personal Information:
We live in a magical Mountain West location of the US.

Other Information:
I like skywatching, bicycling, lake kayaking, organic gardening, travel, crochet, archaeology, nature, movies, music (esp. world music, jazz). Novice Native American flute player.

Hi Bess,

Thanks for your comment on my "Rookie Mistakes" blog. I am pretty sure that anybody that rides a bike is going to have a mishap now-and-then. I have my fair share. I am not cautious by nature.

I enjoy writing, but I don't think I am all that good. I have to think about the subject for awhile and do a lot of editing. I am also not a good photographer. I have a small digital camera that takes okay photos. I take a lot of photos with my phone but get my fingers in the way most of the time!

I write about what interests me. There are a few people, but not many, that are mildly interested in similar things. I try to keep the subject light and leave out esoteric details that fascinate me to no end. But would bore 99% of the adult population to tears!

Thanks, Bruce

Thx for stopping by my blog! Turned out to be a bottom bracket bearing that needed replacing. Love my LBS! ;-)

Thx so much for the blog support and SparkGoodie pep talk!

I absolutely know and have seen over & over the benefits to my clients of my help...it's just been tough to see this diminish over time due to systemic changes beyond my control. Rolling with it as best as possible!
