Focusing on Today

I am a married 31-year-old writer and elementary teacher who has always managed to find time to juggle everything except weight loss. I'm taking a break from work this year to be a full-time master's student, so I'm trying to use this break in my schedule to hit the "reset" button on my life and get my health under control. I have more flexibility in my schedule now than I've ever had, and if I can't pull this together now, I don't know when I ever will. My time is my own, and the only thing ...

My time is my own, and the only thing that can hold me back from finally losing this weight is me. I'm ready for the challenge.

Member Since: 6/11/2009

SparkPoints: 9,764

Fitness Minutes: 4,453

My Goals:
Starting weight: 216.4 lbs.

I will complete 30 minutes of exercise each day whether it's walking, swimming, or playing Nintendo Wii.

I will drink at least 64 oz. of water each day and monitor the food that I eat by keeping a food journal.

I will not beat myself up if I have a bad day. I didn't gain all this weight in one day, so one bad day isn't enough to throw me off track again.

My Program:
In addition to using all of the tools at SparkPeople, I'm starting the 30 Day Challenge on EA Active for Nintendo Wii. The game uses the Wii Balance Board and resistance bands to combine cardio and strength training.

Personal Information:
I'm originally from Michigan, but I've been living in Atlanta, Georgia for the last 3 years. Now, I'm living in Montgomery, AL for one year while my husband clerks for a federal circuit court.

Other Information:
I have two dogs named Franklin Delano Roosepuppy and Eleanor Roosepuppy, but we call her Nora for short. They're both beagle mixes that we rescued from animal shelters. He's about 5 years old, and she's just a puppy.

I am a slightly obsessed fan of Patrick Dempsey and Grey's Anatomy. I think it's his hair...

I have seen John Mayer in concert 10 times and been hugged by him once.

My husband is amazingly supportive of all my celebrity crushes. :)
