Elsewhere on the web, I'm known as Renae Rude - The Paranormalist. I write about: Finessing bipolarity. Writing horror. Chasing ghosts.

I'll be 47 in May of 2014. I'm a wife and mother of two adult children. (One, 18, is still at home.) We have a great dog and cat, and I adore animals. In my life, I've been blessed by many different animal companions. (From chickens to snakes and beyond.) I live in MN, but am trying to ...

I'll be 47 in May of 2014. I'm a wife and mother of two adult children. (One, 18, is still at home.) We have a great dog and cat, and I adore animals. In my life, I've been blessed by many different animal companions. (From chickens to snakes and beyond.) I live in MN, but am trying to get my butt to someplace warmer - perhaps NC.

I'm a Zombies, Run walker/jogger and I want to start and MAINTAIN a yoga practice. I would like to lose weight, but my primary goal is to feel better ... and maybe - someday - to be able to run like I did when I was kid, with a sense of joy and freedom.

SparkPoints: 7,504

Fitness Minutes: 3,767

My Goals:
Update, April 2014: After a few weeks of being off SP, I'm coming back, but cautiously. If I'm not careful, it takes too much time. I've lost approx. 10 pounds, and I want to lose 20 more, but I don't want to stress out over it. I'm challenged by a difficult phase in my perimenopause, and I need to be kind to myself.

It's most important to me to feel generally healthy and energetic. I write and work on the computer a lot, and need to move more.

An ultimate goal is that I'd like to be able to run again - the way I did when I was a kid: with a sense of joy of freedom.


My Program:
My Goals:
1. Track my food daily through goal weight, then randomly as a check.
2. Move daily. (Yoga, Zombies, Run!, walking, etc.) By October, I want to be doing BOTH cardio and strength / flexibility daily.
3. Blog at SP daily, and keep in touch with my accountability partners frequently.
4. Being productive in my chosen field improves my mood and attitude immensely. For that reason, I want to write on my blog and/or my novels EVERY DAY. By October, I want to be doing fiction writing every day, whether I post at The Paranormalist blog or not.
5. Looking good also improves my ability to function well. For that reason, I want to stay on top of a good hygiene and beauty routine. That means being clean, being well-dressed for the situation, wearing a little (or a lot) of makeup, and being accessorized with cool, distinctive "stuff".

Current numbers:
goal weight - 170 - 180
exercise in minutes - 240 weekly / 1,065 monthly
miles - 5 per week

Personal Information:
My name is Renae Rude. I'll be 47 this coming May, 2014. I'm married, with two adult children. I'm a writer. I currently live in Minnesota, but am trying escape the winters here. I'd like to end up somewhere near North Carolina.

Other Information:
I am an IOWL fan and one aspect of that is to create and use thoughtfully designed intention statements.

I intend to:

--easily and naturally be svelte, firm, fit and healthy.

--write quickly, efficiently, smoothly, skillfully and prolifically.

--energetically and joyfully finish one quality novel after another, with ease, skill and style.

--consistently live a life of compassion, kindness and creativity with grace and distinctive style.

--luxuriate in life and enjoy success, prosperity, satisfaction, confidence, beauty, and love.

--nurture my inner strength and energy so I may easily share my soul's gifts.

emoticon I see you are a Gemini (the twins) which I wasn't expecting since you say you work in the paranormal. I thought you'd be Pisces. But, Isabel Hickey who was a wonderful astrologer thought Gemini was the best sign since it is the sign of the baby who can learn quickly and ask questions. Marilyn Monroe was a wonderful example of the Gemini woman, living two lives.
Gemini can have problems with her nerves and she can have injuries to her hands and shoulders. Her lungs are her weak area, so she should never smoke. She loves information and she loves to communicate. She has to be careful not to be a Jack-of-all-trades.

Hi Renae!
Thanks for stopping by! I have been unable to write much of anything for a long time. My right arm injury back in December lead to all kinds of bad news and I don't have the use of my right arm (it was in a full arm cast for 5.5 months!!!). I will have a third, reconstructive surgery on it September 29, and will have no idea how long it will take to recover from that :-( My right humerus bone was totally eaten away and the Dr. said it takes a year for the graft to fuse in :( So right now I can only type with one finger on my left hand due to severe RA wrecking the other fingers.. Its all I can do to keep up commenting on all my friend's blogs..

"BEAUTIFUL WOMAN AWARD"

You are the recipient of the Beautiful Woman Award!!

Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the page of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out! emoticon
