Hi, my name's Ted, I'm a granddad of 13 beautiful grand kids, father of 4, and husband of one (Linda) for the last 42 years... Live in Hesperia, CA. in San Bernardino County, been up here for over 24 years, originally from L.A... Any Sparkers in the High Desert or surrounding areas, give me a buzz... I'd like to find a LOCAL accountability/workout partner...

01/09/2015 - Here we go again... Two more grandkids coming, one in May, another in July! One more great grandkid born in ...

I'd like to find a LOCAL accountability/workout partner...

01/09/2015 - Here we go again... Two more grandkids coming, one in May, another in July! One more great grandkid born in March... Whatta blessing! So proud and grateful to be a part of this wonderful family of ours...

01/15/2014 - Found out that I'm gonna be a granddad again(no. 12).

08/07/2013 - Going to see grandson Tad and his wife Kimmy tomorrow for dessert, and to find out what gender our great grandchild is... Call me GREAT grandpa now....

07/18/2013 - Looking forward to flying up to Seattle WA. to see our sone Pete & his girlfriend Jeanette...

09/23/2011 - Well, it's official... We (my wife and I) are new empty-nesters now... Moved my 26yr old son Pete up to Seattle 3 wks ago and now we're in this big ol' house by ourselves... So far so good, spending some time consoling my wife cuz she misses her baby, but that's what I'm here for... Got a job at the end of August, working for S. Bernardino County. Outdoors, very physical, and I enjoy it! It's cut into my workouts BIG time which is a challenge, but it'll work out... Have gained about 8lbs, but am confident I'll be back on track to 168 soon...

01/27/12 - Still up around 181 lbs and still struggling to find quality workout time... Only playing racquetball about once every other week, and that just kills me! Thought that having Fridays off would help, but it seems that that's the only time I have for doctor's appointments, auto maintenance, doing the wash, grocery shopping, etc.... Something will break though, and I WILL be back on track!

11/09/12 - Now I've gained another 9 lbs!! Still trying to find time to do workouts... Again, it's sporadic at best. The hours I put in at work don't help, but something's gonna happen! At least I've started getting on track with the food consumption thing...

My Goals:
Had two types of cancers at the end of 2006 into 2007... Went through surgery for one, and chemo/radiation for the other... Was pronounced in remission July 2007, and still cancer free... Figured that eating right and being healthy are a couple of ways to perhaps avoid getting sick again, found Spark People... I am currently at 185 lbs. I basically track my food intake,and watch/change/adjust my eating habits which seems to be a large part of the process. I'm currently doing 3 days cardio and 2 days of strength training.

My Program:
Using Sparkpeople Nutrition and Fitness pages to help keep me on track... Constantly reading food labels!! Search the internet to find tables on nutritional values of different foods to help me make smarter choices. I walk/run a minimum 2 days a week, and play racquetball at least 2 days (competitive). Weight/strength training.

Hi Ted,

Thanks for the SparkGoodie. Hard to believe but after 71 years, I have yet to see CA although I have friends in SF and Orinda.
