In 2011, I finished law school, passed the bar exam, got married, got diagnosed with celiac disease, moved cross country, spent 2 months travelling around Asia & Europe ... & realized my weight had gotten completely out of control. Now I'm making 2012 the Year of Me: focusing on my weight & health, as well as a myriad of other "Happiness Project" style goals.

Fitness Minutes: 14,222

My Goals:
Run a 5k Race. - CHECK! Portland Run for the Roses, April 1, 2012.

Run a 10k Race. - CHECK! Buffalo Marathon Relay, May 26, 2013.

Run a Half Marathon. - CHECK! Flying Pirate Half Marathon, April 13, 2013.

Run a Marathon (someday!).

Complete a Sprint Triathalon.

Lose 120 pounds (ultimate goal).

My Program:
I'm currently tracking everything I eat. Trying to be as meticulous as possible by weighing everything & trying not to eat out.

I'm currently doing the SparkPeople strength training exercises & attempting the Couch to 5k program, which has been difficult - but my husband (who is a runner) has been doing it alongside me & encouraging me so that I can complete it.

Personal Information:
I'm a new law school graduate originally from Buffalo, NY. After 10 years away, I've recently returned to Buffalo with my super supportive husband (SchnellD) & our amazing dog.

I'm newly diagnosed as celiac & learning to be gluten free while trying to get my health in my control.

Hubs & I are thinking about starting a family - & how to work that in with my fitness / weight loss goals. Any advice on still being obese while trying ton conceive is greatly appreciated. :)

I LOVE to read - please suggest good books! I'm always on the look out. :)

Other Information:
"You are far too smart to be the only thing standing in your way."

"It does not matter if the progress is slow as long as you reach your goal."

"Make yourself proud."
