Progress

Me in nutshell I guess: I spent a decade as a Latin Teacher and now I'm 2 years into getting an engineering degree. I have always lived through books, but when I changed careers it was becoming more and more apparent that I was wearing the weight of the books on my body. If I'm going to change my brain anyway, I might as well work on my physical and mental health too.

SparkPoints: 8,785

Fitness Minutes: 11,464

My Goals:
With regard to my health: Earn a karate black belt and have the the gi fit properly! Beyond the belt, I want what it symbolizes, the mindfulness, the physical ability, the self-control, self-confidence, focus, and strength.

My Program:
I'm following the spark calorie/fat/carb/protein guidlines and tracking my food at least 5 days a week (maybe I'll make it 6). I train in karate myself 2-6 hours a week, and help teach a kids karate class 1 hour a week. I also walk, lift weights, indoor cycle/elliptical, and do yoga, depending on what I have access to, how much time I have, and what I feel like. I'm going to try and meet the goal of 1000 minutes a month set by one of my sparkteams.

Personal Information:
My name is Sady. I'm from Colorado, but live in Chicago. I'm currently in school to be an engineer. This will be my second career, I used to teach (Latin), and while I don't regret a minute in the classroom, I was inspired to go create.

Other Information:
I love books! I read all the time and many books at once. The stack by my bed right now pretty much sums me up: Jacqueline Carey "Kushiel's Dart," Homer's Illiad, the Smolin's "Trouble with Physics," Adkins's "Iron ball, Wooden Staff, Empty Hands," the "Upanishads," Harrison's "Ever After," the tenth Masie Dobbs novel, a Vegan cookbook, and CAD software book.

I also play the piano and paint. The wave in the corner is mine.

"Every life form seems to strive to its maximum except human beings.
How tall will a tree grow? As tall as it possibly can.
Human beings, on the other hand, have been given the dignity of choice.
You can choose to be all or you can choose to be less.
Why not stretch up to the full measure of the challenge and see what all you can do?"
--Jim Rohn
