I made it! With only two minor slips. Hmmm. Wonder how I’ll do next month! The toughest part is actually remembering to play the game each day!

JMYoung is fruit-hungry.

Parting shots for the month: To all those of you who cheat on here and foursquare, especially the Indonesians, you’re not fooling anyone. Why not try being honest?! It actually feels better than being a fraud. :)

Done my last day of February. I lost 1 life point during the month but I’m more than happy that I survived. March will be difficult but I’m ready.

If anyone has a spare sponsor chip, I would appreciate it if someone here can sponsor me for March. Thank you and thanks to the team.

Hi Irwan! I see you signed up for Team Metafilter for March. That’s great! We’re glad to have you. Since we’re a group of people who are members of Metafilter, and since I didn’t see a Metafilter username on your profile, I was wondering if you’re a member of Metafilter, too?

You’re welcome to be on our team regardless, but it would be helpful to know if you’re not a mefite so I can clue you in if we talk about some Metafilter-related thing —I wouldn’t want you to feel left out.

Thank you Margaret. I’m not sure what Metafilter is about. I joined this team because I see that this is quite a big team with 111 members.
I will try find out what’s Metafilter from the net.

wow, I’ve just read about MeFi. It’s an interesting concept. I didn’t know that it’s been on the net for that long. Would be interesting to read the posts in MeFi.

I have already done four 3-mile runs this week at my target 11.5-minutes/mile pace. Today, I went on an epic 5-mile run and made an 11.3-minute pace without even trying hard! Since I’ve started exercising, I’ve been continually amazed that you can make demands on your body, and it will respond by getting stronger.

New post! Meet my March Sponsees on Health Month!

<p> <p>One of the best things about Health Month is the sense of community, in the thought that we are all in this together, whether "this" be marathon training, scraping together money for our kids, or politely declining a piece of birthday cake at the office. It's a hard thing we're doing, living, you dig? Why not show we support each other?</p> <p>That's what I'm doing here, just as I did last month. I pored over the sponsorship applications and selected these three mavericks, full of vim and vigor, ready to take on March and end it healthier than they began it. I want to tell you why I chose them, because I would be curious if I were you!</p> <p><a href="http://healthmonth.com/profile/Tibla">Tibla</a> gets the nod because she clearly stated she was in it for a foursquare badge, and I just GET that. I love me a badge, friends, and I love that I can help Tibla get one. it's a good feeling. Tibla, I really hope you do a happy badge dance when you get it :-)</p> <p><a href="http://healthmonth.com/profile/pecus">Matteo</a> caught my eye because he told a joke. I dig his short bio a lot, because it sounds a bit like me, and I hope that maybe if I sponsor him and he reads about my journey to a half marathon, maybe he will begin marathon training himself. I also have reasonable suspicion that he is either living in Italy or is an Italian transplant, and having lived in Italy myself, that makes me smile. Matteo, do the damn thing in the best way you know how.&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="http://healthmonth.com/profile/MGB">MaryGrace</a> has three names, just like yours truly, and she tugged uncomfortably hard on my heartstring when she said that she was scrimping to save money for her child's summer camp. My own mother sacrificed more than she would ever let me know in order to send me to camps, buy yearbooks, wear shoes that were popular...she sacrificed even her health by working so much and worrying so much, and though I cannot ever take that back from her, I can do something really tiny to show my quiet but unwavering support of MaryGrace. MaryGrace, your sacrifices are not unnoticed; keep striving toward excellence.&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> </p> <p><a href="http://runmmt.posterous.com/meet-my-march-sponsees-on-health-month">Permalink</a> | <a href="http://runmmt.posterous.com/meet-my-march-sponsees-on-health-month#comment">Leave a comment&nbsp;&nbsp;&raquo;</a> </p>

New post! Satisfied, 28 February

<p>I’m writing this morning from the sunny office at my Permanent Address in the company of a small dog and the <a title="best radio station in the world" href="http://www.kuvo.org">best radio station in the world</a>. Not bad at all, I’d say.</p> <p>I’ve really enjoyed this month’s gig as an “official” <a title="Health Month" href="http://www.healthmonth.com">Health Month</a> blogger. It’s been fun to gather data and reflect on my progress over the course of 28 or so days. I’m pleased that over the last four or five months I’ve been able to draw myself into a different sort of orbit with respect to my health and activity. I won’t be continuing as an official blogger for March, but I’ll continue to play the game and occasionally (and “unofficially”) monitor my progress here and other places. </p> <p>I’m pleased with my overall progress and the attention I am able to give to my eating, exercise, and study habits by using Health Month. I am also glad that I’ve been able to identify “problem areas,” or places in my life where I have to, in a phrase, “curb my enthusiasm” (sorry, everybody). I’ve written about the difficulty of applying and following extreme rules (e.g., <a title="here" href="http://vartabedianr.tumblr.com/post/3145326845/checked-6-february">here</a> and <a title="here" href="http://vartabedianr.tumblr.com/post/3390479425/recovered-recovering-19-february">here</a>). One thing blogging has helped me with is realizing that I can’t follow these sorts of rules well, and - more importantly - <em>that I don’t need to follow such rules to be successful</em>. There is something to “saying” it out loud that helped the point to sink in.</p> <p>It also helps to commit to one month of “no fudging.” The whole point of a community health solution is to rely on others for <strong>encouragement</strong> and <strong>help</strong>. Playing on a team and having the opportunity to ask for help (in the parlance of the game, make a “plea for fruit”) made it possible for me to investigate the extreme rules and determine a balance that I can use to go forward. Thanks to Rhanda, Tim, Michelle, and everyone on Team Awesome! for the assistance and helpful conversation!</p> <p>It would be wrong to say that I’ve completely resolved my situation with respect to eating, exercise, and study. But I can say that I’ve developed a good foundation on which to continue the project. I’m looking forward to applying the form of this sort of practice to another work of habit re-formation inspired by<a title=' Anna Newell Jones and her "Spending Diet" project' href="http://www.andthenshesaved.com/my-spending-diet-guidelines/"> Anna Newell Jones and her “Spending Diet” project</a>. Like personal health, financial health is also important (even for borderline Marxists), so I turn my attention in that direction next. I’ll probably blog about it over the next while, once I figure out what’s going on. </p> <p>Thanks to all of you who’ve kept up with the blog during February. If you’ve come my way thanks to Buster and Health Month, I’d love to hear from you and learn about how things have gone as you’ve played the game. Best of luck for March, and thanks for reading! </p>
