Hi, I'm Mike, and I live in Gilbert, Arizona. Glad you stopped by! I've needed to lose about 40 pounds for a few years now, however, I stink at staying motivated and sticking with it. This is the year I *will* lose the weight. And keep it off.

I *love* surfing pages. I end up on random people's pages and they're inspiring, and I could use all the inspiration I get. So: I add those folks as friends, and subscribe to their blogs -- hope you don't mind! I like to come back, see how you're doing, and get a little inspiration.

Fitness Minutes: 71

My Goals:
My goal's to lose 35-40 pounds, and be in better shape. I was active through high school and college, but we all know how that goes. 15 years later and the pounds snuck on.

My Program:
I'd love to play more racquetball. I need fitness that doesn't feel like exercise. Lack of friends that play though hampers that.

So: I'm going to do the P90X Core Synergistics video til I feel in better shape/up for more. I'll hop on the treadmill as well, using the iPhone's Couch to 5k program. Not a big fan of running, but my wife is, so I'm hoping that'll motivate me.

Personal Information:
I live in Gilbert, Arizona, but grew up in Arkansas, went to college in NJ, lived briefly in Minnesota (BRRrrrrr) and landed in Arizona 15 years ago, been here ever since. You can email me at spark (at)

Other Information:
I enjoy spending time with my kids. They rock. :-)

I work in IT Security. I also teach as adjunct faculty at a local community college.

Hobbies I have or had and want to restart:
Have a vegetable garden
Had a 53 chevy pickup
Have a 64 Triumph Spitifre (in bad shape)
Enjoy the movies, rarely find time to read, but miss that.

Love the AZ Cardinals!
