My page title is also my goal--surprise, surprise! I live in a medium-size northern Canadian city, and it's easy to talk myself out of doing a workout especially during COVID times. My wife and I have been pretty consistently swimming at the Aquatic Centre but that's not enough to get my weight back down to goal. I'm married, have 2 children and 4 grandchildren. My wife and I are retired from the public education system and now living comfortably and happily near our grandsons and services for seniors after a lifetime of living rurally. Life is good!

Fitness Minutes: 117,712

My Goals:
To keep my weight between 145 and 150 and to tighten up my muscle tone. I like being able to see my toes without having to look in the mirror : )


My Program:
Had a very successful bout with P90X early in 2011 but haven't been able to devote 30, 60, or 90 days consistently since. Never was a runner, but from January through April of 2012 I learned running the Jeff Galloway way with the intention of running a 10k event. This in response to a challenge from my sister to join her in the Vancouver Sun Run. Did the 10k no problem, then did 12k in a relay on Mothers' Day. Turns out I really like running so I guess that's my fitness program for the foreseeable future.



Personal Information:
My wife and I live on a beautiful property on the lake at 54.5� north latitude in central British Columbia, Canada. Nearest neighbour about half a mile away, nearest community about a 15 minutes' drive. Do I like solitude? You bet! I also like personal fitness activities, quiet times, outdoor work/play, politics, religion and community service. I enjoy live theatre. I avoid TV, the commercial entertainment industry and other mass media except CBC radio and the internet.


Other Information:
I'm a former Teacher/Librarian but you'd never know that by my current reading practices : ( It just took me almost six months to read "Shanataram". Excellent book, gripping story. It wasn't a difficult read, just had too much graphic violence for quick consumption. I think my summer read will be the full Harry Potter series (for the fourth time : )
