Hello, my name is Harry.

Please, feel free to friend me, follow me, or email me. I will reply to any and everyone. I'm just like you, here to improve my health and fitness. I'm not perfect but I try real hard to make daily improvements in myself. I'm the kind of person who sees the glass as half full.

I'm 65 years old, survived a major heart attack, rattle snake bite, and countless other accidents.

I use a Polar M430 Heart Rate Monitor and the Android "Polar Flow" App to keep track of my heart during my workouts. I prefer to track my weight using the Android App "Libra" as it allows me to track my weight throughout the day, recording multiple data points. It produces an average trend line from those data points. I like to track my minutes of exercise, blood pressure, and weight. I burn anywhere from 300 to 400 calories per workout.

I am losing weight with a modified Paleo diet, meaning NO ADDED SUGAR. It works. I stopped counting most calories and now getting along with life. I am less teatherd to my computer entering so much data.

I love to draw cartoons, hang glide, hike, bike, motorcycle, and bird watch.

If you made it this far, thanks for reading my short bio.

Welcome to SPARKPeople and the never ending journey.
