I love working out, practicing martial arts, cooking (and eating the results), and meditation. That said, women will probably still be ahead of that (or, what I prefer, I invite them to join me).

"I will not feel deprived when I bypass junk food. I will feel empowered because I made the right choice."

Remember, we do this to wake up excited, and fall asleep satisfied.

Sleep Long, Get Strong, and Keep On Keepin' On!

The reason I do all this is because I want to make the world a brighter and more enjoyable place. I deserve that and the world deserves that.

Feel free to message me for any fitness, nutrition, etc. advice.

Hiking, classical guitar, repairing and using straight razors, watching and hopefully soon playing the game of cricket, driving.

These are a few of my favorite things.

@HPMOSSII ... We're in Chambersburg, about 10 miles from the closest AT access point and as you noted, it's kinda steep here and there in our area. If we head 25 miles south we can jump on the C&O Canal Towpath which connects to the Great Allegheny Passage. Between the two you can walk/bike from DC to Pittsburgh. The C&O Canal portion is quite level and is pretty easy going (more my speed these days). We head there or to the shorter park and forest trails which we have an abundance of, so day hikes can be a nice variety without so much going back to the same thing every time. DW has had heart surgery and I'm just an old fart, so we stick to the easier stuff these days although we do attack something a little more technical if it's short. Don't want the rescue people to have to drag my old butt outta the woods. I know what you mean with taking time to get things done. Our short rail/trail seemed like forever from concept to reality, but it's finally finished and working on expansion. Have a great evening!

@NITEMAN3D We've got the North Country Trail cutting through Western PA so when I need some hiking closer to home there are some nice stretches nearby. My wife prefers days hikes to overnighting on the trail so this is better for hiking together. The NCT - at least the part I'm familiar with - is not as strenuous as the AT but its still good hiking. Because the NCT is a fairly new trail, there are still big sections of road-walk unfortunately. But I know there are efforts to seek permission to move the trail off-road. Our local chapter has been successful in this regard but it takes time.

After a bad doctor's appointment where I was told my heart, lungs, kidney, and liver are all not well, I've come back to SparkPeople after ten years doing my own thing. I've now dropped 30 pounds in 3.5 months and my blood work and other tests are back into normal range. The doctor is pleased; he wants me to keep doing what I'm doing and check back in 4 months. I've kept adjusting my weight goal down as the pounds kept coming off; now to work on maintaining this weight.

@HPMOSSII ... Way to go! I talked about it all my life but never got around to it. I'm limited to day hikes these days, but I do try to get out every day. We are certainly blessed in PA with parks and trails. I think Goddard's vision of having a park or public forest within twenty-five miles of every Pennsylvanian is very near to reality these days. If you run out of hikes, the Rails to Trails Conservancy is working on the Great American Rail Trail that will run from Washington DC to Washington state when completed. It's over half complete at this point. Keep steppin'!

@NITEMAN3D Great section. I hiked Caledonia SP to Duncannon last September, finishing PA (my home state). It took me 6 hikes over 51 months to finish PA but along the way I added a bit of VA, all of WV & MD, and half of NJ. Planning to finish NJ and hike NY this summer.

@HPMOSSII I took this pic last Saturday and was thinking about doing this section again myself, leaving Caledonia State Park and heading north for Pine Grove Furnace. A pretty good incline. Keep up the good work!

Oh boy that is a big question. I personally love storytelling, writing, reading, and gaming. I am very into DMing any sort of tabletop game, and huge into almost every board game you can think of. This sedentary lifestyle is partly to blame (that and the constant influx of junk food) for my weight concerns. But hopefully through support of the site and healthy eating changes that can all be different soon!
