My Life is a mix of Jingles and Jangles...

Update: 11/3/12 Working in a new job as a principal/athletic director/teachers, etc... at a small Christian School. Not as much money, but I'm with my kids and that is great. Doing some good in this increasingly tough world. (you can tell I'm straying into philosophical ramblings)

Trying to adjust to the new lifestyle. I coach soccer and am getting ready to try basketball coaching. I also have gotten back into refereeing soccer since my son is now a referee also. Still trying ...
Update: 11/3/12 Working in a new job as a principal/athletic director/teachers, etc... at a small Christian School. Not as much money, but I'm with my kids and that is great. Doing some good in this increasingly tough world. (you can tell I'm straying into philosophical ramblings)

Trying to adjust to the new lifestyle. I coach soccer and am getting ready to try basketball coaching. I also have gotten back into refereeing soccer since my son is now a referee also. Still trying to find that elusive balance between work and living life. Fitness is still trying to find it's niche in my life... Hoping Spark can help with that!

Was in great shape growing up! Became a teacher and coached soccer. Lived overseas in Puerto Rico and England. Got my Master's in Mallora, Spain in three awesome summers. Came back and got married. Became a principal, had more stress. Stopped playing soccer, coaching soccer, and doing anthing active. Had two kids (beautiful by the way). Took on different jobs that were stressful (fixing up schools that had not been accredited). Balance got out of wack. Gained weight and one day looked in mirror and didn't like what I saw. Started to feel crummy...

So, started to run and I've learned through SparkPeople that eating is about 80% of weight loss. I always thought I could "out-exercise" my eating. Not so! I lost 30 lbs and I'm feeling better. Though starting to "backslide" a bit.
But in my "action research" I'm realizing that it's all in your head...

2012 - GOALS: Balance, physical action, eating better, better relationship with wife, being better father, having more friends and doing things with them (as well as family). Spiritual growth. These are a few of my favorite things... (goals)!!! Advice, comments, input, all are appreciated. Let's go kick 2012's butt!!
