I can't say that I've been one of SP's raging success stories, being as I've only managed to lose 3 pounds in the two years since I joined. However, I've so successfully regained my health and mobility and reduced my pain levels and am so thrilled by how I feel these days that losing weight has dropped from the number one priority in my life to merely a much-anticipated pleasant side effect in the long term. I'm too busy living these days to stress over whether or not I've lost a pound this ...
I can't say that I've been one of SP's raging success stories, being as I've only managed to lose 3 pounds in the two years since I joined. However, I've so successfully regained my health and mobility and reduced my pain levels and am so thrilled by how I feel these days that losing weight has dropped from the number one priority in my life to merely a much-anticipated pleasant side effect in the long term. I'm too busy living these days to stress over whether or not I've lost a pound this week, or any week for that matter.

Make no mistake - I am in this for the long run, and determined to succeed at becoming optimally healthy and truly fit. We only get this one life in this one body that was originally designed to last for the entire duration if we take care of it, and I want to get the most out of both my body and my life for as long as possible.

Amen.

Now enough of this boring and depressing stuff. Lets go out and do something fun! lol

Fitness Minutes: 16,308

My Goals:
I want to become optimally fit in order to live my life to the fullest. That is my prime objective; all else is icing on the cake.

My Program:
I have cut out almost all junk foods (still splurge now and then) and am eating more healthful foods and increasing my activity, which can be difficult when healing from an injury. I am tracking EVERYTHING!

3-15-14 I am now committing to working out in the gym 3 times per week, doing Pilates on 3 alternate days and walking every day. I average between 3 and 5 miles per day now, depending on what else I'm doing that day.

5-14-14
The sunny days of summer are upon us here in the great Pacific Northwest! I haven't been working out but have spent the week working dogs and horses and doing a lot of walking, working, lifting and so on. I'm eating more calories so as to address my metabolic issues, but the upside is that I have more energy and just plain want to move more, especially in this gorgeous weather!

Personal Information:
I am a photographer, artist and writer who also happens to raise beef cattle and a few horses. I once bred AQHA performance horses and still have what's left of the breeding program, but have developed a deep appreciation for BLM mustangs. Three years ago I adopted two BLM mares who have made me rethink and relearn everything I ever thought I knew about horses.

Other Information:
I read a lot. You just never know what you might learn when you open a book.

Glad to hear Sonnet is doing well. Didn't you get two mustangs? What is that ones name and do you still have it and how is he/she doing?
