I'm a married father of 2 who always seems to have too much on his plate to worry about himself. Somehow I need to find a balance in life and a path to get/stay healthy.

Looking to lose 20 pounds or so of fat before trying to put it back on as muscle. My weight as a number isn't really an issue, it's where I'm carrying it.

2020 Update...last Labor Day (2019) I set new goals and worked very hard. Counting every calorie, ensuring I got 10k steps every day, going on increasingly longer runs every Saturday and Sunday morning, and making an effort to eat healthier foods I achieved my goal of over 20 pounds lost by Halloween. I am now down about 30 and doing well maintaining. I run only once a week now but keep pushing to do a little better month by month. Annual physical at the doctors has shown improvements in most categories (cholesterol, blood pressure, BMI, etc.) as well. I currently have a 50 day streak of 10k steps per day (with some over 20k) so I’m not doing perfect but I’m staying on track. Setting goals and telling someone I didn’t want to go back and tell I failed I think was a good mental driver.

1/28/2021 - Between covid and the holidays I've had a good test to see how well my "maintain plan" is working. Gained about 5 or so pounds so still down just under 30 lbs from my peak in 2019. 265 days in a row of over 10k steps. Happy with my progress and will keep looking for ways to get better. Thanks to my sparkfriends!

    Garden, get rabbits. Putting rabbit poo of there is one of the best forms of fertilizer you can use -above both cow & horse manure. Plus you can keep adding all season & it doesn't burn up your plants. My corn is 10ft tall 😳

    It is SO much to keep up with. I have to keep my health in check too so I have the energy to work like I need to. Its a huge balancing act! I'm definitely not as efficient at it as I want to be but I do enjoy talking with you about these types of

    Japanese beetles are. It's been raining too much to put anything on there to prevent them. It's not supposed to rain much today so I'm just going to try soapy water. Maybe I'll cover them with cheesecloth.

    How loose regulations are here. I'm trying to eat more organic and from my own Farm. I'd like to get to where I'm 80% or more dependent on myself but that might take a while. I'm not sure if my fruit trees will make it this season with how bad the
