My Program:
I am going to try to do at least 10-15 min of exercise a day and drink at least 8 glasses of water each day. I am also going to try to make good choices when eating.

Personal Information:
I am from NY (New Rochelle), but have lived in MD for about 20 years or so. I am a 29 year old teacher. I teach 6,7,8 grade science at a Catholic school in the DC metro area. I love Astronomy, and especially love being about to share astronomy with my students. I love dogs, hanging out with my friends, sushi, cooking, watching movies, stargazing, etc. I come from a BIG Italian family that does LOTS of Italian things. Some of my favorite TV shows (although I never really have time to watch TV) are: Whale Wars, Rescue Me, Seinfeld, CSI: NY, ER, The Office, FlashForward, The Big Bang Theory, etc. There are others, but I would say that those are my favorite. I also love reading, which I also don't get to do as much as I would like.
I graduated from West Virginia University (LETS GO MOUNTAINEERS!) and loved every minute of it!

Other Information:
I LOVE SparkPeople! I love looking at other people's pages, seeing their success, and adding them as sparkfriends! The people on here are so inspirational and kind. They are so motivating, and even though we don't all physically know each other, I feel like we are all family! Thanks to all my SparkFriends! ALso, feel free to add me as a sparkfriend!

I am doing well, thank you for asking.
Gearing up for a camping trip next week, and then a trip to England two weeks after that! I'm nervous about sticking to plan during those times, but I guess if I plan out my camping meals that will be one hurdle overcome.

I see by your status that you made good choices yesterday. emoticon
