I'm a non-traditional student in my senior year currently studying Health and Wellness and definitely going into Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in my graduate studies.

I may be walking the FULL 2011 Flying Pig marathon (26.2 miles) in May, my second endurance event. My first was walking the 2009 Flying Pig half marathon (13.1).

A goal of mine that began after the completion of my first half marathon in May 2009 was to virtually walk and bike across the USA. Progress on walking and cycling across the USA on the Southern route of America's Discovery Trail--virtually:
(beginning 5/3/09): 180.78 miles / 5048 miles total

Yep, I'm walking and deciding where I want to apply for grad school. Prayer and meditation will help me determine where I will go to grad school, what I am to study, and how it will be paid for.

One thing has become clear to me. The more I try to people-please and put on a false facade, the more I feel miserable and engage in self-loathing. This self-loathing is like priming the pump for bad eating behavior. I have an eating disorder that is exacerbated when I am trying to be someone who I am not.

KEY areas that SP helps me: P - Perseverance, U - Understanding, S - Small Steps, H - Having Friends. I want to live 2010 and beyond with PUSH!

OUT OF credit card DEBT! May 2010!
Getting up and making that decision for today that I am going to move my body, my mind, and have my spirit moved.

Aiming for progress rather than perfection is what it's all about!

    Hi Lainey!

    I just wanted you to know that because of YOU I have started Volkswalking! I didn't even know such a thing existed until I saw it on your page way back when. It took me until a couple of weeks ago to actually get a starter pack and attend my first event. I am hooked!!

    Thank You Thank You Thank You!

    Hi - Hi - Hi, LaineyBug!

    How's everything in your world? I am home being the dutiful wife with the hubby. He had started a temp job and he's going to stop and I can't say I blame him. It didn't sound like anything I would do for the money at all but it took out my workout. (roll the eyes) I did not understand HIS feeling at all. ... uh, OK

    *grin* great to take some time and do a little Sparkin' and great to *see* things are going well in your spot, sweetie!

    BIG hugs to one of my favorite friends in SparkLand! emoticon
