There's a great plaque I saw once from the British Kennel Club. It said, "Honorable scars from fair wear and tear shall not count against." I love that saying. Let's all remember that when we fall off the wagon...

Member Since: 7/30/2007

Fitness Minutes: 40,988

My Goals:
I want to feel confident about my body again, both in how it looks and how it can perform. I have dealt with more than my share of major medical challenges in my life, and know that my health - along with the support of my Spark friends - is the most important thing I have going for me!

My Program:
I'm starting over again, almost ten years after I found Spark the first time. I am nervous, but know that baby steps will help get me there. So, I am working on one day at a time.

Personal Information:
I live and work in the arts in Kailua Kona, Hawaii.

Height: 5'11"

My Inspirational Quotes (for this journey):

“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”

“Think highly of yourself because the world takes you at your own estimate.”

“We can’t become what we need by remaining what we are.”

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”

"Nothing tastes as good as being fit feels."

"Finish each day
And be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and
Absurdities have crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can."

"The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they can't find them, make them."

- George Bernard Shaw, playwright
