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: 6,721

Fitness Minutes: 2,840

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.

Thanks for your comments on my active clothes blog--I've been kind of lucky in the pockets department. My capris have a zip pocket on the side that'll hold a cell phone and key if I squish them in. I've also been looking at a belt that holds things--kind of a limited fanny pack type of deal. But I hear ya, it wouldn't hurt to have a few more. Hope your day is going well!

I'm really happy to have found an active group of writer's here on SP! I'm glad you liked my intro, too.

The past few weeks I've been okay on activity (somehow, lol!) but yeah, the fruits and veggies are going to be hard, eap. Thanks for the congrats on the contest. It was a huge shock because it was my very first time entering one. I've one contests for fanfiction, from fans in the fandom, but to win a contest like that? Against published authors and not actually my category!? (mine got folded into a bigger one) It was a bit too much, and now...I don't know? It's scary!

You know it's true about the muse! ^_^

I wandered around the threads and followed the rest of the welcome e-mail. If I think of anything, I'll let you know!

Here's to a great rest of the year!

Thanks for the comment. I haven't been able to get out since then because we have been having a lot of rain. Right now I have the TV off so I can enjoy the thunder and rain. I saw you write Horror too. I love Horror! I have some ideas for horror shorts wrote down and a horror/mystery story. Write now Im actually working on a fantasy/mystery series. With the fantasy think Mortal Instruments not Lord of the Rings. Well enjoy the rest of your day.
